Favorite locations in games

Be it a town, dungeon, country, or a world, these are my favorite locations in video games for one reason or another.

  • Part of what sucked me into Final Fantasy VII was the immense appeal of its central location, Midgar. It felt genuinely huge, and with its clash of the corporate cleanliness with the seedy underbelly, it was a diverse and neat location to explore. I am particularly fond of FFVII's strange mix of high-tech and low tech, and there's no better example than Midgar.

  • It's full of pirates, insult swordfighting, and grog. Works for me.

  • My introduction to fantasy was in Quest for Glory. I love the little valley of Spielburg to this day.
