10 Franchises That Should Go Open World

"Open world games normally required their own genres in years gone by, as limited hardware meant these large play areas came at the cost of visuals or gameplay complexity." (PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Mirror's Edge, no.
Splinter Cell, no.
Hitman, no.

I could see the others working much, much better.
Left 4 Dead, no.
Monster Hunter, no.
Final Fantasy, no.
Call of Duty, no.
Bioshock, no.
Mario, no.
Half-Life, no.

I could see the others working much, much better.

So witty.

I disagree with a lot on the list. One gamr I would love to see have a more open world is MGS, but it appears I'm in luck. Final Fantasy would suck in true open world from the get go. Walking in to enemies you can't kill would suck. Returning to its PS1 structure is something I would agree on.

Ive alwAys wanted to see an openworld pokemon,i think if nintendo actually put work into a console pokemon it could work,and an open world bloodrayne would be bad either,especially after infamous proved an open world vamp game can work.

What about the Vampire: The Masquerade series?

I dont have an opinion on it I never got a chance to play it.

Bloodlines was alright. You know that they are working on a World of Darkness MMO based upon the Vampire the Masquerade table-top game, right? It looks awesome.

Here is a link in case you are interested. There is also a WOD Online wiki that keeps things up to date.

An open world Mirror's Edge would be - for me, who can only watch in awe envy at the skilled free runners and parkourists (excuse the nonexistent vocab) - a dream come true.

The original version of Splinter Cell Conviction was a free roamer and it actually looked pretty good.

I'd much rather have that over what Splinter Cell has Turned into.

Mirrors Edge in third person would pretty much just be Assassins Creed. What made Mirrors Edge so good was that it was First Person.

Metal Gear Sol... wait. Oh, right. :)

A lot of those games have great focus of storytelling like Half Life and Bioshock and making it open world can ruin the pacing of the storytelling
