People Share What Game They Could Survive For A Day In Exchange For 1 Million Dollars

If someone offered you a million dollars to live inside of a game for 24 hours, what game would you choose?

That’s the question that Reddit posed the other day, and it turned out to be a really good one. Like most questions that involve “would you for a bunch of money” components, people are ready and willing – so let’s see what games they’re going to try to survive.

13. That’s logic.


I’ve played games that have gone on for a couple days.


12. Sounds like a good time.

Any table top RPG. Spend the entire time RPing in a bar or something and avoiding all combat.

But hanging out in a bar might not be such a good idea if you’re an NPC. That’s the sort of place murder hobos visit.

11. Unless…

The sims, it’s easy I just have to not get stuck behind any furniture, or burn the house down while cooking.

Unless I’m the sim, not the player. Then I’d have to pray I get a gentle or inattentive god.

10. I love townie drama!

Stardew valley! you can just spend the time getting involved in townie drama instead of doing anything dangerous and still have fun.

9. Just relax your way to the money.

Minecraft creative.

Peaceful is easy as well, but creative just guarantees you’ll become a millionaire.

8. Does this count?

The Stanley Parable.

not moving or even installing the game gets you achievements so it counts as playing.

Reminds me of the achievement where you have to go 5 consecutive years without opening up the game

7. Not a bad way to waste a weekend.

Civ VI. 24 hours would get me to like turn 10.

You’ve made it! Here’s your million dollars!!!

OK lemme just have one more turn….

6. Start from the beginning.


If I start at the beginning, I just let Ralof handle Helgen, loot stuff, hit up the Guardian Stones (no hostiles on the way) and then swim to Riverwood to avoid the wolves. Sell stuff in Riverwood, rent a room and stay at the inn for the rest of the time.

wait for 24 hours

Watch as the 24 hours occur over the course of 10 seconds (depends on loading time)

5. Sleep is nice.

Portal 2 because the first thing you do in the game is walk around for like 1 minute and fall asleep for a few years.

4. We could do this forever.

Football manager. In fact, I’ll do a week.

Them: You did it! You survived! Here’s your money

Me: Just one more match…

3. This guy knows.

Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball.

2. I will take all of the candy thank you.

Candy Land.

1. How to beat the system.

By “survive,” I’m taking you literally, as in “I only lose out if I die, not just if I lose.”

So probably a game where the player can’t actually die. A Pokemon game, probably.

Pokemon Snap (either one). Spend a day watching amazing wildlife, from a vehicle that is built to be completely safe, and maybe take some nice pictures.

These are some interesting answers. It’s pretty funny how different people have different logic, don’t you think?
