In this thread on The Secret Cabal Guild forums, I asked for suggestions for Geek Universes to explore. I had just begun exploring the Game: BattleTech Universe, and it was so deep and detailed without me knowing about it that I knew there must be others like it. Below are the answers I got here in GeekList form for future reference, wider exposure and hopefully further additions.

I haven't explored all of these Universes, so I don't know how deep they go or how detailed they are. Some of them seem too new to have accumulated the complexity that I've found with BattleTech, but then again there probably aren't a ton of Universes that can compete.

My wife mentioned Harry Potter when I mentioned this list. She thought that I said universes where you would WANT to live. Soon after mentioning this list she said that she would probably be a muggle and it would be no different than our own universe though.
