You know, a lot of games I play may SEEM like a cool place to live at first, but they've got some serious drawbacks that would make living there not very appealing. Silent Hill? Yeah, sure, I'd love to get lost in fog for hours, have every door I try to open have a broken lock, and getting raped by monsters. Resident Evil? Forget dealing with zombies and giant mutated alligators, just imagine really having to use the bathroom only to find out you can't get in there until you obtain the Helmet Key. Pokemon? Please, you wouldn't be able to so much as go for a walk without getting attacked by a Pidgey. Even the Mushroom Kingdom would be a pretty fucked up place to live, what with the constant attacks from Bowser and the only eligible women being taken by portly plumbers or living in outer space. Or being Birdo.
But the world of Harvest Moon? I could dig it. I love the Harvest Moon games, even though I haven't really played the last few installments in the series. In the past when I've played Harvest Moon games (primarily Harvest Moon 64 and A Wonderful Life) I could get lost for hours playing the simple farming sim. Farming is hard work, sure, but in the world of Harvest Moon it's easy. Plus the townsfolk are all very charming and likable. And nothing bad ever happens there: no attacks, no murders, no monsters. Just a very peaceful and enjoyable place to live. Not to mention getting married and raising a child is ridiculously cheap. So, yeah, I think I'd like living in the world of Harvest Moon.
I actually came REALLY close to picking Toronto, Canada just so I could hang out with Scott Pilgrim and His Amazing Friends but that's probably sort of cheating kind of.
