Future Islands (Kingdom Hearts) – Ozzie Mejia, Eyes on the Trip Prize
The Future Islands are a beautiful place. Have you ever seen the introduction to Kingdom Hearts? That seashore appears so enjoyable. It appears like a beautiful island away from all of civilization.
Granted, it would not have a cheerful ending, at first. It will get completely consumed by the Heartless and worn out, a minimum of till the top of Kingdom Hearts 2. However even with the occasional shades making an attempt to assault me on the skin, a minimum of I can take refuge inside one of many caves and take in the springs. The Disney worlds of Kingdom Hearts are good and all, however nothing seems like extra of a stress-free getaway than the unique island that opens the sequence.
The Resort Space – Donovan Erskine, Pokemon Champion
Whenever you defeat Cynthia and are topped Sinnoh League Champion in Pokemon Diamond and Pearl, you’re rewarded along with your very personal Villa within the Resort Space. It’s the primary time the Pokemon video games really made me really feel like the very best coach within the area. I’d like to take a real-life trip to the Resort Space and simply hand around in the new tub exterior of my Villa, sipping on juice out of a coconut, with my trusty Pokemon taking it simple by my facet. That might be the dream.
The Island of Tsushima – Blake Morse, Co-EIC
I’ve been to Japan a few instances IRL now, however most of my experiences there have been within the massive metropolitan areas. And sure, that’s tremendous friggin’ cool, however I’ve at all times needed to spend a while within the extra rural areas exploring the countryside. Actually, nothing could be cooler to me than to get an opportunity to expertise the island of Tsushima within the time of the samurai. After all, I wouldn’t wish to cope with Mongol hordes or something like that, however an opportunity to horseback experience by way of fields of flowers and write haikus beneath waterfalls as cherry blossom petals floated down from the treetops, touchdown gently on an undisturbed lake, nicely that’s the type of stuff I’m into.
Ghost of Tsushima actually drew me in with its tackle the fantastic thing about nature, and it made me miss the hell out of Japan on the identical time. Looks as if the proper leisure spot should you can keep away from all of the disappointment of the sport’s narrative. And because it’s additionally an actual island, it’s in all probability one of many few locations on this listing the place you would really trip!
Golden Sands Outpost, Sea of Thieves – Sam Chandler, Take me to the seashore
After I’m on vacation, I wish to dig my ft into the sand, run into the water, and catch some waves. I can do all of this stuff on the Golden Sands Outpost in Sea of Thieves. It’s a location I like to go to in-game. I marvel on the colours and the format every time I’m there. Plus, there’s a tavern with some wood benches out the entrance on the water’s edge. Drinks and a seashore view? Sure, please.
Rio Morales’ Bed room – Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales – Chris Jarrard, Higher Opinions Than Different Workers
If I had my decide of locations in online game historical past to get pleasure from a calming trip, it might be within the bed room of Mrs. Rio Morales, higher often called Miles Morales’ mother. I think about all of the cool actions we may do collectively and even when she’s not there, I’ll hold the mattress heat for her.

I may roll out three completely different solutions right here and be glad with every of them. Once we talked about places we’d like to visit in a earlier Shack Chat, I took Skellige from The Witcher 3, so I’ll go together with one thing else this time.
That leaves The Lengthy Darkish versus Owanjila in Crimson Useless Redemption 2, however I’ve to go together with the Quiet Apocalypse. Whereas the never-melting snow of The Lengthy Darkish isn’t very best, the complete vibe and tempo of the sport are one thing I crave in my life. Discovering your personal meals and exploring in relative peace sounds splendidly difficult. Whereas there are exterior threats to your survival, the sport is basically about how a lot you may pull from your self, and I discover that fascinating.
By way of places, the precise atmosphere with all that snow isn’t actually someplace I’d wish to take a vacation, however I’d prefer to trip within the peace and quiet and vacancy that it presents. So, I suppose my very best trip spot in a online game could be Thriller Lake, however in the summertime, and through the apocalypse so it isn’t filled with youngsters scaring all of the fish and recreation away.
Gold Saucer – TJ Denzer, misses arcade adventures
I’m an avid fan of arcades and amusement parks, so the thought of a whole city-sized amusement park and arcade sounds deliciously pleasant to me. Video games galore? Yeah, boy. Gold Saucer’s received video games for days, even when a few of them look like additions primarily based particularly on adventures I’ve been on. Type of bizarre, however I’ll take it. Points of interest? Sure sir. It’s received a haunted mansion, a combating area, and even a gondola experience I can take my favourite companion on to see the entire park and watch the fireworks. I simply have to ensure I make the appropriate selections so the individual I like will be a part of me on the experience.
Oh, and who may neglect the copious quantities of very authorized, on-the-level, Chocobo Racing? Whether or not I wish to increase my very own big hen for races or guess on the races of different jockeys, you may guess it is going to all be very reasonable and never rigged. By no means you thoughts that Golden Saucer is constructed on high of an inescapable desert jail that was once a corporate-owned mining city. I’m not the sort to stay my nostril the place it belongs so I don’t suppose I’ve to fret about that. I’ll simply be cautious of the creepy fortune teller cat making an attempt to pilfer my treasures.
It was already cool again in 1997 when Last Fantasy 7 first got here out and I can’t wait to see what the “renovation” appears like when Gold Saucer lastly seems within the remake. Both method. I wish to go there and have a calming break from saving the world or no matter.
Tenting in Elwynn Forest – Greg Burke, Head of Video
I’d like to be within the clear forest of Elwyn watching the celebrities beneath the sky at evening by a crackling hearth, perhaps journey right into a mine? Maybe I will swing by Stormwind to take a look at their wares. Possibly I’ll fish, and attempt to tame a Murloc. Severely it’s a fairly good place to only chill typically after a protracted work 12 months.
