I would live in aerowalk. There is enough free-range space on the level that I can find wild game to shoot, and I would cook the fresh meat in a fire I made by the upper tele. But at the end of the day, I would set up camp on the red armor and have a cozy sleep in my loft.

I'd like to live on one of the floating sky islands in NaPali where there are lily-pad covered lakes, green hills and meadows and bucolic farms to roam about and cultivate healing fruits and raise cows. A short trek from the farms are mystical but peaceful temples on the island where I could enter the flame-lit chambers and feel the stress leave as I listen to the calming chants of the Nali Priests in deep meditation.
I'd live in one of the cottages not far from the town gathering center where the wind chimes pierce the early evening breeze. Think I'll head over to the pub and join some of the elder Nalis as they tell stories of the great battles that led to the toppling of those invaders referred to as the 'Sky Demons'.
Anyone else want to live here?

Zelda 64, in that village up in the mountains, Kikuru village i think? So peaceful there, except with the graveyard and the haunted well and all that...
in the first or second map of contract revoked, or Nastrond, to study and look at the beatiful textures better.
Or maybe the mountains of Soulstice, once all the monsters are dead, it would be a peaceful sanctuary.

First level of Rise of the Triad. I'd hang in the secret area that only opens after 4 mins.
The Undying Manor...

is an impressive Irish coast property - worth a fortune. A bit stormy but private - you could hang out at the Monastary ruins, the family Mausoleum or paddle out to the Standing Stones. It's quite a huge property. You would need to find a way to prevent most of the staff from quitting as it does require a lot of upkeep. Also, there's some nasty weeds in the greenhouse.

I considered listing the mansion in Undying (and the whole estate, really), but some of the "transition" mansion levels were really poorly lit, plus they used things that looked like typical mapper fair (1:2 grade slopes instead of stairs). But I suppose if you consider all the outlying areas -- including the catacombs in the Mausoleum -- that might outweigh the poorer parts of the mansion.

Some quality choices.
Na Pali Heaven - this was going to be my choice for Unreal! Somewhere overlooking the lake too I think. A beautiful setting, less harsh than Bluff Eversmoking or the castle, would be great floating in the sky and probably a nice village community once the Skaarj had gone.
Gloom Keep - this was going to be my choice for Quake! The outside bit impressed me right from the start. Just a cool place. I'd probably hang out in the YA secret that you jump along the wall too. However the left hand area with all the traps can piss off, I'd have that knocked down and replaced with a nice garden and some Fiend pens.
Eternal Autumn (?) in Undying - another excellent choice, a lovely place apart from the weirdos trying to kill you. A lot of Undying is cool but I think this is probably the best.
Oh stick to in-game maps too, makes it easier to compare.

The start of FAKK2 - really nice place, great view, nice gardens, right close to the town but a bit of privacy, lots of hot chix around.
Quake2....hmmmm not sure, it's all a bit grim and oppressive.
Wheel Of Time - errrr. There must be somewhere. I forget.

The Hell level in Painkiller. That'd be a sweet place to live.
Either that, or the Dark Place.

Eternal Autumn was the (rather out-of-place, but very pretty) outdoors world right at the end. The creepy blasted pseudo-Moorish void realm was, I think, called Oneiros.

Who is Moor? I am intrigued.

The Moors were Muslims of Arab and Berber descent who invaded portions of Spain in the 8th century and built a civilisation in Andalusia; they lasted until about the late 15th century. Architecture was essentially Islamic but with many distinguishing features, (none of which I can name :), but it's quite characteristic as a 'look'.

Some of my ancestors were Moorish Converts on pappy's side, some were Celto-Iberian, like the House of Castille -- I've a relative who traced the lineage down to the time of Cortez
though the records are much better kept after 1755 when my ancestors founded New Iberia to reign in Protestant Expansion in the New World.

is a nice site.
Some interesting ideas as well; the faux dome in http://www.pbase.com/image/11078368
should be fairly easy to implement.
