The Top 10 Best Virtual Worlds to Live In
When a boy grows weary of this world, his mind wanders. Sometimes it wanders to Little Big Planet. More often it wanders to Lara Croft’s mansion. There are a lot of virtual worlds I wouldn’t mind kicking it in for a while. Hit the jump to see my top 10.

10. Leisure Suit Larry

Although not a stellar game, the character Leisure Suit Larry (henceforth LSL) had it pretty good. If my day-to-day is chasing tail in a world of digital sexiness, things could be worse. The reason this one didn’t rank higher is the same reason GTA did: rocket launchers. As the cheerleaders from my high school learned summer after graduation, a nice rack will only get you so far.
9. Prince of Persia
This would be a good one to live in because in the most recent iteration, you can’t really die. You just keep getting saved by a super hot girl. Haven’t you ever wanted to run up sideways onto a wall over a pit of fiery daggers without having to worry if a sexy lady will catch you if you fall? I do. Sometimes I want to do that twice a day!
Katamari would be a fun world to live in for its simple and ridiculous nature. There’s not a lot of clutter in your day mucking up your fun. Ironically, there is actual clutter everywhere, but all you have to do is roll the clutter up. You get to see all sorts of weird things, stick them together, and then talk to a space king about it. Usually you have to swallow that kind of entertainment in Amsterdam on a tablet.
7. World of Warcraft
The WoW is something a lot of people live in anyway. And, while it might not be the ideal world for some, I felt like it would be a sin of omission to not include it. It would have some delightful perks. I can’t ride giant bats here, and obviously that would rock my balls off. Also, you might get to meet Mr. T.
6. Shadow of the Colossus
Shadow of the Colossus is kind of a wild card pick, granted. But I enjoy battling epic things, and there’s few things more epic than a colossus. And, in this world, that is all there is to do! What’re you gonna do today? I don’t know. Maybe get up and have some toast and then fight a 500-foot tall man made of fire and stone. Friends is on later, too.
