Summer vacations getting a little pricey?  Want to go somewhere interesting without leaving the comfort of your couch?  Try a video game vacation!  The great thing about video games is that they can take a person anywhere–to places both real and imagined, and they don’t require plane tickets or a passport.

Join Real Otaku Gamer every week for a highlight of some of the best video games places.  After reading, take the survey at the bottom to vote for your favorite videogame vacation spot.

Games: Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2, Mass Effect 3

Place: Citadel


About: The Citadel is the galactic hub of politics in the Mass Effect universe.  Home of the counsel, a group representing the different races in the galaxy, the Citadel is one of the more prominent places to visit in the game.  Its origin unknown, this self-sustainable space station is the place to be for politics, tourism, and trade.

Why Visit: It’s a cool place to check out, regardless of which Mass Effect game the player is going through.  Gawking at the beautifully done architecture or the many, many different alien species is one of the best parts.  Regardless of which Mass Effect game you are playing, the scenery is absolutely beautiful.  It also is an interesting display of the “haves and the have nots” of the galaxy between the people living the high-rent areas and the duct rats and merchants just trying to get by.


Must See Areas:

  • Visit the Presidium, a huge open area that houses the government offices.
  • Take a ride up to the Citadel Tower, which contains the council chambers.
  • Go to the Wards and do some shopping.
  • Visit one of the many dance clubs such as Chora’s Den.
