These Video Game Towns And Villages Were Doomed From The Start

Oh those lovely hometowns, starting villages... Their peaceful and harmonious atmosphere ensures that there's nothing to worry about; our journey is yet to begin. And then suddenly, it's all gone, leaving behind nothing but dust. And sometimes a bit of fire.

The settlements listed below are not necessarily just starting areas, but they have one thing in common: they are all doomed to meet their destiny, sooner or later, and there is nothing we can do to save them.

Mild spoilers ahead!
