The Power of Immersion

GameGrin - "When making open-world games, developers strive to create not just a great place to spend many hours in but a believable one too, an environment that could exist in the real world. However, after putting countless hours into such open world classics like Skyrim and Grand Theft Auto IV, I can say that this hasn't really worked on me as I can never forget the two feet gap there is between my eyes and the television screen. Whilst I may get sucked into the stories and the characters and adore the gameplay, I've never really felt immersed in a world, as if I am the person I'm controlling, not just some sweaty teenager in his bedroom with an Xbox pad." (Far Cry 3, Grand Theft Auto V, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)
