The next generation of consoles brings the open world with it.
I'd say the racing generation. Forza GT6 NFS Drive Club Grid 2 Project Cars
Open world generation MGS V WITCHER 3 INFAMOUS SECOND SON DEAD RISING WATCH DOGS MIRRORS EDGE SUNSET OVERDRIVE GTA V(rumored) MAD MAX FINAL FANTASY Not counting the online games announced like THE CREW(you can argue its a racing game too) THE DIVISION, DESTINY, to name a few
Assassins creed black flag*
Wrong Second Screen Generation :D
Will be a great gen
:/ I have more racing games in my steam selection right now. Dirt 1/2/3 F1 2010/11/12 Flatout 1/23/UC GRID 1/2 GTR 2 NFS Shift/Hot Pursuit Race 07 + all expansions Race Inejection TDU 1/2 Xpand Rally This doesn't include my sims outside of steam. Not saying that there aren't alot of great racing games coming out, but I'd hardly call it the racing generation.
I really hope so this gen was all shooters and i feel open world games can do so much more. since you can have so many different type of open worlds with different environments and characters.
Couldn't be happier. The current gen was dominated by first person shooters as open world games were limited by hardware. Next gen gonna be sick.
red dead remdemption gta4 gta5 saints row elders scrolls lego games proved it wasn't the hardware holding it back, it was developers being lazy and rehashing shooters.
Yeah you are right in that respect. Rockstar Games and Bethesda were the exceptions and is why they are my favorite developers. Saints row and lego games were pretty tacky though so I don't really hold them in high regard.
i sure hope not. i really do prefer a more focused and linear style in both gameplay and story, mostly story but open world gameplay can be a annoying sometimes too. I like how LA Noire did by giving you the option.
I often lose the focus in open world games doing side quests or just having fun around... and then it gets boring and I don't care more about the story. Linear doesn't mean bad at all in my opinion.
I couldn't have said it better. I lose interest in most open world games. It has to be done to near perfection to keep me interested. I'm not a fan of exploring. I'd rather be doing stuff than running around looking for stuff that in most cases do little to nothing.
I think open world is being implemented into all these different genres some way or another. Count me in!
I have nothing to complain about that. I believe open world games provide more replayability and makes me feel in control of the story and how fast it progresses.
Love me some open worlds. Less linear 5-8 hour shooters, more everything to even the genres out please.
Sometimes it's good to have a break from all the dudebro shooters.
Open world was big since ps2. Dont see what the big deal is here. Shooters will still be the biggest thing next gen
I'd say this gen also has been the gen of open-world games. Thank god it wasn't just the gen of FPS (even though there were many more than sandbox games): The Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim Just Cause 2 GTA IV GTA V Red Dead Redemption Burnout Paradise Fallout 3 Fallout Vegas Far Cry 2 Far Cry 3 Assassin's Creed 1, 2, Brotherhood, Revelations, 3, 4 Black Flag Yakuza 3, 4, Dead Souls, 5 Mafia II Dead Island Ratchet & Clank a Crack in Time and Bioshock 1, 2, and Infinite to a lesser extent Feel free to add more if you know some good!
Infamous 1 and 2.
I hope so, as its my favourite genre.
MGS 5 will be awesome on xbox one...Can't wait.
I think we'll definitely be seeing more open world games, particularly on the PS4 due to the 8GB RAM.
Why do I feel like it could have been a lot of "real" open world games last gen if the x360 used HD DVD like they were supposed to or use supported blu-ray.
Watch_Dogs, AC4, MGS V, InFamous: Second Son *drools*
While I like open world games like Assassin's creed and Skyrim. not every game have to be an open world game.
