DARK SOULS

Sorry but I would not consider Bioshock and Rapture a High Fantasy world.

Th3DeathDog (2 years ago)
Umm, Daggerfall isn't a province, its a region of the High Rock province. Also, Daggerfall took place in the entire continent of Tamriel.

I have noticed that gamespot don't really know a lot about ES lore too, it's kind of annoying actually.

Wiggidy Wiggidy Wack (2 years ago)
omg the was this series that aphmau used to have and everyone would go on these adventures through the magic world, and each person would be something else, like satiel was a ranger, and I do t know what castor of aphmau was at first, but later aphmau became a mage. does anyone understand my nonsense? I need to know the name of that game!!
Jeremiah Mills (2 years ago)
Bioshock isn't what I consider fantasy more sci-fi imo but great a game still
LadieLydKyd (2 years ago)
Somehow I had a feeling Alice: Madness Returns would make the list.
jijenikkke (2 years ago)
Ah forgot Final fantasy 10.
jijenikkke (2 years ago)
Zelda oot - WoW - Aion - Fable 1 - Mass effect 2.

I just watched a video saying that Skyrim is the 8th (out of 10) best RPG on last gen console and now a video saying that Tamriel (Nirn) is the 4th (out of 5) best fantasy world. If I kill someone out of rage, I'm not taking responsibility for my actions...
Alisdair MacDonald (2 years ago)
To be fair Skyrim isn't the greatest RPG out there (Bethesda is okay at RPG aspects in their games). Don't get me wrong though, Skyrim is still one of my all time favorites. But yeah, why wasn't Tamriel/Nirn number 1 or 2 (i would have been okay with Warcraft getting that though).
Simha Lecht (3 years ago)
Dark Souls is the best fantasy game.
BenjaminGessel (3 years ago)
Favorite Video Game Fantasy Worlds (in no particular order): 1.) American McGee's Alice (Wonderland) 2.) Kyrandia 3.) Sword Coast (Baldur's Gate, Neverwinter Nights, Icewind Dale, etc.) 4.) Tamriel 5.) Randland (Wheel of Time) 6.) Middle Earth 7.) Loom 8.) Thedas (Dragon Age) 9.) Albion (Fable) 10.) Harry Potter video games-various areas Of these, Wonderland is quite hard to top, probably first place for stunning visuals...  The best fantasy video games, however, are the Baldur's Gate games.  The Alice, Sword Coast, Wheel of Time, and Harry Potter games, for me, are the most memorable/vivid/unique.  Middle Earth is a given-too familiar...  Thedas had some appealing attributes, but looked a bit "drab" color-wise.  Kyrandia was quite colorful, but, like Loom, it was an earlier game world.  Fable/Albion was just not up to par with the others, but QUITE colorful/LOVE the demon doors, etc.  Tamriel is too repetitive, BOORING...
Rhiannon (3 years ago)
Where are the fable games! All three fable games have different aspects (even though some fable games are better than others) but they are filled with fantasy! From hanging with lady grey to becoming the queen of Albion!
SiX_Sh0tZ (2 years ago)
+Rhiannon Kaye first one is the best, i played it every day 24/7
Rhiannon (3 years ago)
Queen or king

Skyrim is the best of all (my opinion)

rip old azeroth
Szalay László (3 years ago)
where is the Gothic and Witcher series  :D ? but most of all how can you skip the Diablo series.
Eric Gpk (3 years ago)
Love tamriel! To bad it was the 4th..
dank (3 years ago)
Pandora is also a beautiful planet/world.....
Ole Uncle Ben (3 years ago)
i feel that dragon age should be on this list, its a really deep and realistic world if you read the lore
lencycler1 (3 years ago)
best fantasy world ever....her in my bedroom.
TGK (3 years ago)
what was the bow at 1:50 
Yorgarazgreece (3 years ago)
oh come on jess this list should be at least top 15. there are so many games that should take credit from this! So many games are missing from here. What about mass effect, assassin's creed, fable, dreamfall. What about arcania gothic and eve online universe? I'd want to live in this worlds!
Yorgarazgreece (3 years ago)
anyone played dreamfall?
The4thDensity (3 years ago)
Never mind the games. Jess you are my Fantasy. Gorgeous looking girl.
Cheif_SlapAHoe (3 years ago)
No Star Wars?
TheSharpmarksman (3 years ago)
where's fucking albion? fable is one of the most charming worlds ever created 
52nd Timelord (3 years ago)
Thedas, or the Capital Wasteland
Penn Lamb (3 years ago)
Really? Mass Effect didn't make it on there? Literally exploring other worlds. Hm.
Hemang Chauhan (3 years ago)
You REALLY love Alice's Worderland don't you? +Jess McDonell :D It was also on you blog.
TheMadDude (3 years ago)
The first two parts of Bioshock were incredible! Unique atmosphere, intensive gameplay and interesting story line and then come Infinity which was nothing like them - it was too short, full with stupid dialogues and to be honest it was boring and not fun at all. Still love Bioshock 2. If we see another title like that in future it would be awesome!!
Frankenstein077 (3 years ago)
Can't say as I have a single favorite, but I've always liked (and haven't seen mentioned) Nosgoth from the Legacy of Kain.
warguy403 (3 years ago)
Mass effect universe without a doubt
inkysquib237 (3 years ago)
Skyrim is Amazing!
Joshua Langworthy (3 years ago)
wow no Final Fantasy...? that should have been up on the list being the longest and biggest Fantasy Series in the world.
Maknooze (3 years ago)
-Tamriel -Azeroth -Oh and yeah, first place, alice in wonderland. WTF
MachineLaw (3 years ago)
Where's Xenoblade?
Aki (3 years ago)
I love Darksiders 2.
SmithyBoi (3 years ago)
The Ocarina Hyrule? I honestly prefer the Twilight Princess one. Much more beautiful in my opinion.
danny121782 (3 years ago)
No fallout????
vojtusnemeckus (3 years ago)
Try Final Fantasy.
Kevin (3 years ago)
How the hell did Tamriel rank lower than Hyrule on this list? I love the zelda series, but it doesn't have as vibrate a world as Elder Scrolls does. World of Warcraft I can accept ranking better, but both beaten by Hyrule and Alice McGee's Wonderland is astounding.
Hink Hall (3 years ago)
Wow this list sucks.
killerdudee (3 years ago)
Fallout Universe :)
Kamil Szadkowski (3 years ago)
Why only high fantasy worlds? And what about the dark fantasy universes like the world the Witcher?
Edward Nigma (3 years ago)
Legend of Zelda is one of the most overrated, shit games ever made. Azeroth should be first, without a doubt...
Tylzie :) (3 years ago)
No bioware games? whut
Finn Lasch (3 years ago)
Where is Lordran?
Cowboy77 (3 years ago)
My favorite fantasy world is in a genre I rarely ever dabble in (I've recently started playing 2 including this one). It's bigger than Skyrim, it lets you beat people up with flaming guitars, giant hammers, and laser guns. It's that game you've never heard of and allows 4 player online play; Sacred 2
Demogorge (3 years ago)
Ah Jess, you need to play Mass Effect my dear. I know the game takes place in an explorable galaxy and not a world, but it definitely should have made this list.
Forgotten One (3 years ago)
my personal favorite is the Mass Effect universe because how do you not enjoy almost all the characters that you fight along side with 
Gr8rgamer (3 years ago)
I like anything Jess talks about :) but I have spent a fair amount of time playing WOW, Bioshock, Dragon Age and Elder Scrolls, my favorite games are all RPGs
Brandon Smith (3 years ago)
I love you!!! +Jess McDonell Hyrule is my favorite world as well, I'm a huge Zelda fanboy :D
Dante E92 335I (3 years ago)
1. San andreas in gta:sa, 2. the wasteland from fo3/fo:nv, 3. tamriel from the elderscrolls stories, 4. the zone, from s.t.a.l.k.e.r., & 5. the mushroom kingdom in super mario 64. 5th 1 is very debatable though just threw that 1 in.
kenoby massacci (3 years ago)
I love both skyrim and Darkened Sky, if U haven't already heard about it, check it out coz it's awesome
Hoodie proxy (3 years ago)

John Skillet (3 years ago)
I love Kingdom Hearts & Mass Effect worlds design.
QorinHalfhand. (3 years ago)
Skyrim should be number one.Zelda is boushit.
s20 (3 years ago)
we all know Nirn or Tamriel deserves the number 1 spot ... 
William Tael (3 years ago)
Skyrim on 4th place???! You mad, bro? It should be at 3rd or 2nd place! And what about Brutal Legend? That world was AWESOME!
polnatista2410 (3 years ago)
No pokemon?
King Teady (3 years ago)
Nirn is the world of Elder Scrolls, not Tamriel
Gopher (3 years ago)
I never did find Teldryn again. That is going to bug me now.
Golden Lotus (2 years ago)
It's Gopher!!!
Fifa Lad (3 years ago)
Gopher they played your gameplay
Alec Ro (3 years ago)
Who knows... maybe Richard will meet him again in the distant (or not so distant) future while compiling an even larger library of books to fill Breezehome. :)
Andrey Oliveira (3 years ago)
Who knows... revenge is a long type of game. Maybe the day gopher makes a video showcasing a mod he can take a trip to Solstheim and met Teldryn once again.                                           *this time with more blood*      REVENGE ROLLY!
Austin Iverson (3 years ago)
Oh my god GOPHER, I bet none of these people watching a gamespot video know who you are.
Федор Гатов (3 years ago)
Final fantasy 8 and 9, best worlds ever
Immryr (3 years ago)
the world of panzer dragoon!
Jimboola (3 years ago)
Hyrule top, Tamriel down the list - EPIC FAIL. Was this compiled by a 6 year old girl!
cobras1x (3 years ago)
Favorite fantasy gameworld is definitely zelda ocarnia of the time. 😄 loved playing the fishing game
SkylordJagster (3 years ago)
I still think Skyrim is the best one of out this list
Crabbow (3 years ago)
I feel like Nirn should be number 1 but that's just my taste
amazo88 (3 years ago)
there r so many good fantasy game worlds, why limit them to only 5? smh
Roten Auwn (3 years ago)
My favorite world is Tyria from Guild Wars 2
LittleHampie89 (3 years ago)
My top 6 favorite fantasy worlds are Guild Wars series, Dragon Age series, Witcher series, Elder Scrolls series, Warcraft series and Diablo series.
Paulo Amistad (3 years ago)
Tamriel take's my top spot for sure. My close second is neverwinter.
arazmanaz (3 years ago)
How can Dark Souls not have got a mention? Another favourite is Bastion. If anything this shows that I need to play more fantasy games, I do own some but not played them yet. Bioshock 1, Mass effect 1 and Final Fantasy 13
Matthew Woodrum (3 years ago)
Rapture was great. Just wish BioShock was a good game.
Paolo Tnt (3 years ago)
DESTINY?!!
Johnny Leyenda (3 years ago)
My personal picks (as in MY top 5) would be: - Rapture from BioShock - The Feudal Japan from Sengoku Basara, where everyone is a badass, screw Assassin's Creed, this series teachers history even better. - Boletaria from Demon's Souls (best medieval fantasy atmosphere I've seen in a while) - Megaman Legends world, universe or whatever - Most Hyrule representations
Kevin (3 years ago)
Wait till you get your hands on Bloodborne. That world is shaping up to be even more amazing than Demon's Souls world.
liam bigger (3 years ago)
kingdom hearts
Megamigit23 (3 years ago)
i would give anything to live at wii sports resort
Jason Voorhees (3 years ago)
WoW should be number 1 and skyrim 2nd everything else doesn't matter
Jason Voorhees (3 years ago)
+Jack Parnell You are a big CoD fan I take it?
Jason Voorhees (3 years ago)
Wow hasn't been around over a decade for no reason. get your diapers checked dude
Daniel Velásquez (3 years ago)
For me it's Gaia from Final Fantasy VII, it was a great world to explore from distant Wutai to Don Corneo's Mansion in Midgar.
nitekrawler (3 years ago)
thanks jess for putting alice in there i watched my gf play and i have to admit it was one of the better game worlds ive seen too
Trunks (3 years ago)
Kingdom Hearts > zelda
Zenex (3 years ago)
I like how everyone forgot about Cube World
BigBoss (3 years ago)
hmm jess and alice look the same in alice madness
Singularity (3 years ago)
Dark Souls has the best world because it effectively tells its story through the landscape, which is incredible.
Oliver (3 years ago)
The world in which the Panzer Dragoon series takes place
luqmanr (3 years ago)
Assassin's creed's world is technically our world, but being able to feel as if we're living in a different period of time feels really great. I'm especially fond of ac1 and ac2's world. Ff9's world that combines a bit of victorian and aztecs(?) Architecture is also great
Kevin (3 years ago)
Technically it's a butchered historical twist set in an alternative universe.
James The Viking (3 years ago)
It is the same world, unless you buy into Game Theory's video about how it is actually a world very similar to ours but things like the physics are different
Creggie (3 years ago)
I really like Ivalice from Final Fantasy. It's got a lot of charm to it. 
CRCE (3 years ago)
Tamriel, Grand theft auto world, Bioshock, Fallout's post apocalyptic world and the mass effect galaxy.
11thmaster (3 years ago)
What is the rage for Zelda all about? Personally I think it's a load of rubbish. I'm gonna say 5. Thedas. 4. Tamriel. 3. Rapture and Colombia. 2. Halo. 1. Star wars KOTOR universe.
Ben Lecuyer (3 years ago)
Dark souls is one of my favorites. It's not very large, but it densely packed with beautiful landscapes and feels very alive. Definitely one of my favorites.
