Unlike other fictional universes, video games largely involve conflict. Were I to be transported as I am to one of these universes, I'd no doubt die in a heartbeat. Let's just analyse the basics: I'm not in the best physical shape. Sure, I'm fit enough and if push-came-to-shove, I could survive a hostile environment for a period of time but live there forever!? Unlikely. Secondly, I'm going to have to get pretty good at fighting. Weapons, hand-to-hand, whatever, I may need to fight my fellow being or some weird roaming creatures but sooner or later, I'm gonna have to lay the smacketh down on someone or something.
The sad fact is, us regular folk would be pretty useless in most gaming universes but rather than paint a rosy outlook and highlight the few gaming environments we could safely reside in, here are some of the worst games we could live in:

|Hey there, aren't you an adorable bunch?! NOW FIGHT FOR ME!|
|I'm going out to take the dog for a walk...on second thoughts, I might just stay home|
|If you love overturned vehicles, fire and hordes of zombies then Raccoon City is the place for you!|
|Ahh, another beautiful day in this provincial town...wait, what's that godawful smell?! (Concept art from Fable 2)|
And if all that doesn't bum you out, what about living in a FIFA 14 universe!? A world where anyone and everyone is always talking about football. Every day, bombarded by football on every screen for all time ... oh wait, we already have that.
