Think about literature, movies, games, and comics that identify primarily with either fantasy or science fiction.
Which of these genres is more compelling to you?
Can you "see" yourself in one of these worlds more than the other?
Which, in your opinion, gives artists the most oppurtunity for creativity while still staying within the genre?
I often wonder this. See, MMORPGs seem to be kind of ruled by "fantasy" but other media may make up for this. I'm not talking about which is more prominent though, but which is "better".
Now I realize that the elements of both "worlds" often overlap in creative works and that no characteristic is entirely black or white. (I remember a quote about "science we don't understand being no different than magic" or something like that.) I also remember many creative works that are clearly both.
It might be hard, but PICK ONE.
I've long wondered what the "public consensus" was about this.
And tell why you picked what you picked, I'm curious to see some contrasting opinions.
