No GravatarTired of spending a bunch of money to get away for the summer?  Don’t want to travel any farther than your coach?  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 video game vacation spot.

Don't let the grim appearance  fool you; Pandora is a fun place to visit.

This week’s featured place: Pandora

Game: Borderlands & Borderlands 2

Pandora is the place for adventure and excitement.  First settled as a colony for people looking to get away from Earth, the new inhabitants had no idea how crazy this planet really was.  Harsh, indigenous life and rough conditions and a barren climate kept all from the die-hards from leaving.  The planet has been under control by one corporation or another, although many of the locals of Pandora can be a bit eccentric and sometimes downright cannibalistic.  Don’t let this deter you from visiting, though.  The lure of riches and treasures from legendary “vaults” around the planet lure people to the planet every year.   A true vault hunter will have an enjoyable visit, no matter what!

Sanctuary is a great place to kick back and relax.
