Why Open World is Overwhelming & Not What I Want

Geralt's last adventures will take place in The Witcher 3's expansive open world landscape and everyone's excited. Well, make that everyone except Gamers Association editor Luke Frazier as he explains why he wishes for more linear experiences. (Culture, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt)

It is because you are used to JRPG games. They are completely story driven and guide you along a path. Open world is for people who like freedom and exploration with everything real time. This is becoming the trend for core RPG's, in particular, but games as a whole in the west. When done well, open world games can grab and keep the interest of gamers for a very long time. It causes them to sell very well and they can hurt the sales of other games that don't offer as much bang for the buck.
