Cool Ranch is my all time fav too. I'm not exactly a huge fan of CR but growing up in a rural area and seeing the Western-like land, along with the amazing graphics Wiz will NEVER hold a candle to (lol) makes me just love it
Oh absolutely! Cool Ranch is hands-down my favorite world in the game. Why? Just because I've never seen a Western film in my entire life, doesn't mean I can't like the place. I love the art, the story, and the diversity of enemies in the world. From weasels with the most deadly gambling skills in the Spiral, to sniper chickens, to bison, to guitar-yielding horses, the undead, and of course, El Toro! (Dun nun nun nun nun!)
Maybe it could be the fact that I live in a western-like area, or that I had chickens when I was little, or my absurd obsession with horses, or maybe my dream of becoming a ranch owner when I grow up. Don't need justification for liking a world that a lot of people don't like.
Of course, that's a whole different story with Monquista. But don't ask me to tell you why I can't stand that world, because I could go on for ages...
