I think 100% longs for finished and not gimped games.

oasdada1227d ago

I guess im the other 70%.

open world is good but that doesnt mean everything should be open world.. i think liner games have their own place and experience. think about all the best games uve played and Atleast half of them wud be non open world games

Yes more open world is a good thing.
now with that being said, ubisoft games are worst example for open world game design.

We need More like R* and less like Ubisoft.

30% rings a bell....

Oh yeah how complete Ac unity was when they released it

Hahaha, that was a good comment :)

Well they did say they weren't going to ship a 70% AC game.

Too bad Ubisoft games all play the same.

DarkOcelet1227d ago

Yeah, they do.

Climb a tower mission structure was almost in every game they had last year. (The Crew, Far Cry 4, AC Unity)

And the repetition of those games were unbelievably bad.

Dario_DC1227d ago

Sorry but it's still a taste kinda thing...
Not to mention most of Ubi games are open world, tower climbing, repetitive and somewhat boring games... Still haven't finished FarCry 4 for example because I find it's lack of story just plain boring....

Blood Dragon,the best thing coming from them.
I'm pretty sure the devs had full creative control over that one.

Chaos theory is still my favorite Unsifted game ever.
