Default What are your favorite type of locations in a game?

I was wondering what you guys like to see/be in. Personally, I love open world nature games, like for example Skyrim or Far cry. I really enjoy well crafted environments and I can get quite a bit of time just looking at/going through them.

Realistic graphics are nice, but I also appreciate for example DKC Returns environments (Which gave me the idea for this thread). My favorite locations in general are jungle, savannah, ancient ruins/temples and space. Going through these really add to the fun for me. What about you?

Water World ( ͡? ͜ʖ ͡?)

But seriously, I enjoy ancient ruins/temples, evil factory, peaceful meadows and busy towns as settings. The mystery, the beauty, the hustle and bustle of these places make it interesting to see.

I love grand architecture. Cavernous ornate cathedrals and palaces, looming towers, cityscapes that spread out as far as the eye can see. Also space. Spaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaace!

Personally, I absolutely adore green, sunlit forests or cities! Or Meadows, but I got that interest from Flower.

Any environment with a lot of greenery or simply variety gets a thumbs up from me.

Caves/Dungeons are definitely my least favorite but only because a lot of them have monotonous scenery and seemed to be designed as tests of endurance.

I would have to say snow levels are my favorite. All the white snow.

Fiery/volcanic locations

Awesome music:

I really like snow and ice environments the most, especially ones with pretty music. On the contrary, some snow/ice areas/levels in some games I've played have proven to be boring or just annoying.

I also like forests, like spooky dense ones (Donkey Kong Country 2's Gloomy Gulch comes to mind) and lush forests that are pretty.

Outer space areas are also nice.

One more favorite of mine are environments that look quite beautifully stunning at night time, like Xenoblade's Satorl Marsh, Eryth Sea and Valak Mountain. Anyone who's played Xenoblade Chronicles would know what I'm talking about.

Least favorite is deserts. So boring, bland and lonely.
