Fantasy exists in so many different genres, and this is because it has unlimited scope. The depths of the creators' imagination can be fully explored in a world that is inhabited by that which we do not know. Although sometimes they can feel reminiscent of each other, fantasy lands in books, film or video games always have a sense of individuality to them which makes them epic in their own way.
Throughout the history of storytelling, there have been some very notable worlds created, and they have stuck with us through many changes in culture. This has led to many of them feeling like second homes to those who admire the genre. The stronger a world feels, the better the story told within it becomes.
Taking the realm of fantasy and quantifying its best worlds is a challenge, but some genuinely stand the test of time and are a step above the others.
(Before anyone begins to grumble, Harry Potter will not appear on the list as it's not a fantasy world, but fantasy existing in the land we know as our own.)
Hey, I'm Michael, lover of all things geeky, in games I always play as sneaky, favourite lion king character is Rafiki. In all seriousness, I am a Bristol-born boy, who moved out to Surrey to get his Bachelors degree in Drama and Theatre Studies before moving on to gain a Masters from the Guildford School of Acting. I adore all things pop culture, and will talk your ear off about anything ranging from my favourite wrestler (AJ Styles) to my favourite show (Avatar the Last Airbender)
