What are four in-game items you would love to have in real life?
Well… I may have inherited the two replica swords from Lord of the Rings that my dad purchased, and I am slowly adding to my armory, so I suppose one of those items might be the Grey Warden sword from Dragon Age: Origins, because I have a problem.
I… might have a letter opener version of it, but how cool would a full-size one be??
If we’re talking about useful items that I’d like to have because I’d want to use them, I would absolutely love to have a portal gun from the famous Portal and Portal 2. I mean, who hasn’t had a moment where they sit down, get all comfortable, and then realize that they forgot something in another room?
Or, you know, being able to teleport myself places would be pretty neat, just because.
Another item I’d love would be Link travel pack from any Legend of Zelda game. That elf can carry more things in his back pocket than I can carry in a suitcase, I swear. Being able to have a small pouch that I can fit everything in and still have it be all organized would be fantastic. I like my handbag, but Link’s drawstring pouch is way more efficient, let me tell you.
For the last item, I toyed with the idea of bringing the Lens of Truth to life, since I value honesty, but then I began thinking about it and thought that maybe always being able to lay every secret someone has bare might not be the great gift it seems. After all, there is a reason we keep things to ourselves, isn’t there? We choose what information to tell as a way to protect us psychologically and emotionally, and I think that using an instrument that rips that autonomy away from someone would be a gross violation of trust.
So I settled a magic wand from the Lego Harry Potter games, because sometimes you just want to wave a wand at your problems and have them sort themselves out (I’m looking at you, laundry).
And no, I didn’t cheat. Wands are items in those games.
What about you? What’s an item from a video game that you would love to be real? Are there any items that would be questionable as IRL objects (like the Lens of Truth)? Let me know in the comments!
Thanks for stopping by, and I’ll see you soon!
