In this week's Community Spotlight we focus on the thread, "In which MMO world would you live?" by Emerendil. In the thread, Emerendil poses the title question to the MMORPG.com community and offers his own thoughts:
If you could enter the world of your favorite MMO, where would you build your house?
Mine would be in Telara from Rift, somewhere in Silverwood, which is my favorite zone. Probably in Argend Glade, or near Sanctum :)
Cognito chose EVE:
I would be immortal. I would be in space with access to thousands of planets. I could learn new things without actually having to learn them - just wait for the timer to be up :P. I would have no fear of death, so would be able to do anything I wanted (though I just thought, that would also remove the thrill or excitement out of a lot of things).... So many reasons and things that entice me about this game universe than any other game world.
AlBQuirky has an amusing reason for wanting to live in World of Warcraft:
I was going to say Original EQ, but who wants a hill giant or griffon stomping on your home?
World of Warcraft would be the safest, in my opinion. The monsters know where to be and they stay there. Maybe build a house above the human starting area, where the griffons fly over from Stormwind to Iron Forge. Only a couple of empty tents there next to a pretty stream...
Terranah would want to live in Star Wars Galaxies:
That's easy, Precu SWG. I had a beautiful home in a lovely city. All my friends lived around me, the cantina was across the street and the shuttle port was close by. I had my dog Lucky, a cute ingame GF, and enough chips to live comfortably.
Yup, those were the days. Still miss my dog. I have a pic of me and him watching the sun set from my porch, last day I played. He was a good dog, but he knew how to get in trouble!
For me? It's a toss up between the awesome world of Star Wars (in Star Wars Galaxies) and The Matrix of The Matrix Online. The latter is pretty easy to imagine, especially since we saw all the possibilities of the movies. I think it would be awesome to walk around the 'real world' with all sorts of capabilities while knowing the whole thing is fake. Look however you want, be as strong or fast as you want, know Kung Fu, the possibilities are endless. At the same time, I'm also a huge Star Wars nerd and I'd love to actually live in Star Wars, but The Matrix is a bit easier for my head to wrap around.
