So after hitting up the bar last night me and a few friends go back to my apartment to just hang around and chat. I start up the Xbox and start playing red Dead Redemption (bad ass game) with my friends and I say "Man, the wild west was so cool"
Long story short a friendly argument ensues as to which time period was the most "fun" ("adventurous" is probably the better word) to live in.
So I thought, why not ask the nice people at GAG to settle the dispute? Which would you rather live in and why?
Also, Aside from the wild west the argument is not necessarily limited to specific regions of the world. For example while the middle ages is commonly associated with Europe keep in mind that China, Japan and Meso-America were going through a similar way of life.
Another thing. You can live whatever life you want in your choice of time period. Just because you live in the wild west doesn't mean you have to be a cowboy; you can be a freaking butcher if you want, it doesn't matter this is for fun :)
The poll system is limited to 5 so I'm going to put the 4 most interesting in the argument IMO, and leave the 5th as "other"
My Vote: The Wild West. There's nothing cooler than riding off into the sunset with nothing but the clothes on your back, your horse, and the six shooter in your holster. Whether you ride alone or you roll with a gang it's all so bad ass :)
