The Top 10 Best Virtual Worlds to Live In

5. Grand Theft Auto

Really, Liberty City offers so many exciting activities that I can’t think of a particular person that wouldn’t be pleased.  Nymphomaniacal?  Maybe you should be a prostitute.  Of course, there is always the risk of being killed for your money.  Better, perhaps, to be a carjacker.  Then you still get the sex, but you’re the one making off with the money.  Also: rocket launchers!

4. Little Big Planet

There is something pleasing about the cute little Voodoo dolls in Little Big Planet. This world also has the benefit of one being able to dress one’s self in an ironic and/or mischievous way.  So I could bring that with me from real life.  Also, maybe I could make it with a hot little sack person.

3. Banjo Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts

Banjo Kazooie appeals to both my cartoonish jocularity and my inner man-mechanic.  Of course I want to build something, but can I make it have spirally, hypnotizing wheels and a fog horn?  If you ask the Department of Motor Vehicles, they will tell you that you cannot.  If you ask Banjo (or Kazooie), they will happily grant permission...and even lend a paw.  Adorable!

2. Mario 64

There’s a lot about living inside Mario 64 to love.  For the first time in all the Mario worlds, you can walk or run depending on how you’re feeling.  You can also participate in cartoony wackiness like shooting yourself out of a canon or jumping through a magic painting.  There’s always something to do or fight or collect.  It’s just shiny and engaging and fun – much like Princess Peach.

1. Sega Marine Fishing

This was a Dreamcast exclusive and stands (sits in a fighting chair?) today as my favorite game of all time.  The point of the game is to relax in a tropical location and go fishing.  That’s all.  It’s the best of all possible worlds. You can even get pretty close to living this reality if you buy the reel controller.  And, having been close enough to that virtual reality to almost feel the Caribbean sun, let me tell you, there’s no better virtual world than this one.

What virtual worlds do you wish you could live or play in for a while?
