    Sci-fi! Or do you see fantasy things in my banner or av?

    Fantasy is not bad, yes. But I'm a Halo fan.

    I don't mean things like Star Trek, because I don't like it. Whatever...

    Star Wars rocks and Halo, too! :D

    No one wants to live in the present. Fantasy for me.

    Why does everyone love Fantasy? Am I the only one who finds the high probability of a life of hard labour, terrible hygiene facilities and no television unappealing? When it happens in the present it's third world and we feel sorry for everyone, but put it in a world with dragons or evil wizard tyrants and suddenly it's fun?

    Urgh, deciding between Fantasy and Sci Fi was so hard >_<
    On the one hand, there's magic in fantasy, but on the other, there's robots in sci-fi. Then I remembered that Fantasy also has dragons so I voted for fantasy =P

    Disease. Cruddy food. No internet. No air conditioning and only fire to keep you warm. In most worlds the majority of people are primitive farmers or military pawns. And, yes, there's the dragons, which usually have nothing to do with the story except talking to the occasional hero (remember in a fantasy world your chances of being the hero are extremely slight), or periodically burn your farm and steal villagers for snacks.

    What is it I'm missing here? What is the fantasy world appeal?

    Without doubt, Fantasy!
    Middle Earth would be a good choice but my preference would be the exquisite world of Erith

    Tough, tough choice between fantasy and sci-fi! For the moment, I'm voting sci-fi though.

    Present.
    People die, get really sick and get tortured in fantasy worlds. They're not all living in elven halls...
    You're all gonna end up as dismembered roadkill corpses in aSoIaF.

    Besides, no coffee? No thanks.

    Fantasy. I'd be more than happy to escape this world.
