Even tough I don't have the game yet I like Motorstorm Apocalypse's currency of poker chips. It looks like a good currency for a game.

Military grade bullets off Metro 2033, as opposed to dirty rounds you buy shit with them but they can also load them up and do some serious killing with them.

I liked the Drebin Points from Metal Gear Solid 4. You could exchange them for weapon upgrades and monkey sounds. Pretty sweet deal if you ask me...

Pokemon's P.

Gold from Diablo (the original). 5,000 gold per pile. So towards the end of the game you have about 15 piles of them near your town portal :P

Ill probably think of something better after I hit reply and think "shit!", but the best that comes to mind right now are the Legionares / Denarius or something like that from the Fallout 3 New Vegas game

Always loved those! Each one is worth almost 5 bottlecaps, if I remember correctly.


I started out with nothing and still have most of it!

This, because It seems frankly ludicrous that my character is carrying 38,000 bottlecaps on his person.

WHERE DO THEY GET HELD?

Same place you stashed your Jet and Mentats to get through Raven Rock security...


Your opinion is wrong.

I'm gonna have to say Rupees from The Legend of Zelda series.

I would say Bells from "Animal Crossing" but ever since City Folk ruined it for me by showing me that the currency Bells are nothing more than coins with stars on them that just killed the mystery and creativity to it.

High level runes from diablo 2.

Seriously, while gold may have been the currency with the NPC's..........HLR's on the other hand were much rarer and more valuable. The entire online community was based on HLR's

You could throw them in sockets on weapons and make rune word combinations which created really fucking badass weapons that absolutely destroyed anyone wanting to pick a fight with you.

The things were so fucking rare, that professional "boss runners" (god-like players whose only mission was to kill the bosses over and over and as fast as possible to collect the loot) came about, and started selling the HLR's for real life money through websites.

That, and pylons. YOU MUST CONSTRUCT ADDITIONAL PYLONS.

Star Wars Galaxies credits. I use to be loaded until I gave millions of credits to the less fortunate. I guess you could say I was a bit of a hero.
