If you were to be locked up for 1000 years and were allowed to only take one video game, which would you choose?

Obviously that means no aging and you can’t take anything else. Basically the question is which video game offers the most content, potentially could keep you busy for 1000 years. Initially I thought I would choose my favorite game which is Don’t Starve but I figured it doesn’t have enough content so this is kinda tricky.

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

Unless you are into eggwars stuff or weird mods I don’t think Minecraft survival mode has that much content.

Assassin's Creed Valhalla, since it takes a 1000 years to complete, anyways. 😉

 

Seriously, though, I think it would probably be something like Mass Effect Legendary Edition, as there's lots of replayability, and you get to technically cheat by getting three games in one. You could actually go through every possible variation of outcomes, and try out all the different classes. A lot of times, I just make the same decisions for expediancy and because I know the "right" choice.

I'd say it should be a sandbox game without much of a story. Story would just get old and annoying the more you play the game. And obviously no pre-made levels because after playing the game 3 times you know every corner in and out. Preferrably also including multiplayer to keep it fresh. And as much randomness as possible.

 

So i'd say Minecraft would probably be close to the ideal candidate.

 

Another one - and probably my choice - would be Skyrim. This game offers literally endless replayability due to it's modding support. New content, up-to-date graphics, etc.

MMOs would be a great choice, I think.

FFXIV for me. Huge world with a chunky main store, a lot of side stories, absolute craptons of content to go through, gathering, crafting, gambling, minigames...

Wouldn't a consistently developed game kind of break the rules? I mean if the devs are still adding content to it for the next 1000 years, there's always something new to do, presumably.

OP didn't really set any rules. But he did mention internet can be used etc. So any game with modding support or consistent updates has a big leg up.

Also you would consume it way faster playing 24/7

Joke answer: Action 52

 

Real answer: Probably something like Dreams, because you can make your own games in it and play ones made by others.

New DLC Regularly plus Steam Workshop? Updates?
