Nice video. :)

Well, I've lived in Sasebo, Nagasaki 10 years ago. It has a U.S Navy base that my dad was stationed at so I've experienced all that before. So living in Yokosuka isnt on the top of my list.

Now I am living in Fukuoka and this cancels out a desire to live in any of the Ryu ga Gotoku related cities like Tokyo or Osaka. I've been to Tokyo countless times aswell..
Okinawa does seem like a nice place to live though. I plan on visiting in 2017.

And I'm from California so ya, no GTA cities for me either heh..

Guess id have to go with these.

5. Ding Dong Dell (Ni No Kuni)
4. Hong Kong (Shenmue 2)
3. Florance, Italy (Assassins Creed 2)
2. Greater Mushroom Kingdom (Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars)
1. Guilin (Shenmue 2)

And places I would never step a foot in mostly due to infectious diseases..

5. The Mansion (Resident Evil)
4. Post-Apocalyptic United States (Fallout and The Last of Us)
3. Midgar (Final Fantasy 7)
2. The Hallway (P.T-Silent Hills)
1. Kowloon (Shenmue 2)

Thanks for watching!
Sakuragaoka is very similar to where I live too. Still, the place seems to have certain charm real life does not really have.

Your list is a very good one by the way. I thought about choosing Guilin too, but there isn't really something we can call a town yet. When we get Shenmue 3, I think there's a fair chance that's going to be my no. 1 though! Shenhua's house alone is already just so magical!

Nowhere fictional I'd like to live particularly but plenty of places I'd like to visit such as Ivalice (FFXII era specifically since everything is still natural, Final Fantasy Tactics era the world is turning to shit, civilisations are dying off and everybody is branded a heretic or backstabbed; it's kinda similar to Game of Thrones at that stage practically, since it's obviously based on the post War of the Roses era of Britain, a really dangerous era to live in basically).

I'd also like to visit Lospass Island/Hotel Flower, Sun & Rain since it's such a quirky place with interesting guests and the hotel workers are just as weird. I'd like to try their coffee, trip up out of bed every morning, get confused by the guests interactions, listen to insane remixes of classical music and wander the beautiful tropical island (which was based on Micronesia/Polynesia supposedly) and take in the sights and soak in the atmosphere. It would be quite the experience.

It all depends... do we live there by our world's rules or theirs? And if ours, would the other inhabitants have to abide by their rules? If so I'd pretty much live in any large place that has a turn-based combat policy so I could take over the world with ease.

If by their rules then somewhere in Tamriel. Maybe Bravil coz it's snowy but within the borders of Cyrodil (as much as I love Skyrim, I wouldn't wanna bump into a giant whilst at a low level) They're all idiots n can't see you if you're crouched. Even if you're pointing an arrow at their bollocks. Plus the potion = life system, the ease at which you can carry absolutely anything, and the easily exploitable economy makes it a primary target for domination with minimal effort.

If however it's a case of everything plays by our rules, then I'd probably have to settle for Sakuragaoka in Shenmue. I mean, it doesn't have monsters or gangsters or super villains to randomly kill me at any given minute. Plus it's grounded in the real world - to an extent - so a least I know the future will be similar to ours, and I can just live a normal life there til I save enough money to move back to Manchester.

Mr357...As amazing as some of your locations you picked are within the fabric of visiting in a game, I would not like to visit some of those in real life at all, or especially live in, if they existed. Not taking the piss, but daaaamn are some of those fucking dangerous. You would come up against serial killers, androids who want to nestle in your skin, a psychotic AI who thinks it is your master, the list goes on mate, I would never fecking live in any of those places, ever. No thank you, you can go if you like, but you'd have to be prepared for shit to go down constantly...

Would get mind raped by the AI. You would probably become a slave to that AI.

2. Beyond (Policenauts)


Would possibly get your organs harvested.

3. Neo Kobe (Snatcher)


Would get Snatched. Or Nuked to hell.

8. Rapture (Bioshock)


Would go mad due to plasmids overload. Or the crazy surgeon would fuck around with your face. Or an entertainer would blow you up. Or you would drown. Or the underwater mechs would kill the absolute shite out of you.

10. Hong Kong (Shenmue II)


Would get lost.
Go visit it in real life.

Well, I kinda had the "peaceful" states of these locations in mind, whether it be before or after when the games take place.
