Too Many Open World Games Is A Huge Problem

Enricko: While the idea of having a game where you’re able to explore numerous environments whenever you please sounds amazing, it’s not enough to guarantee that it’s going to be amazing.

Yeah, agree with your hard disagree.
By the same logic in this article, every game that tries to bank on any popular genre is ''a huge problem'', because it either copies elements of the existing games and/or dilutes the genre itself.. which is something that has been happening for decades, and has brought out plenty of interesting games and upcoming studios despite of it.

Creating a completely new game is a massive risk, especially for smaller studios. So yeah, they are going to take elements of recent successful games like the open world setting.
Sounds to me that the writer might have a case of open-world fatigue, which is understandable enough. But then again, just play some other genres for a while.

[Edit] Over-saturation usually irons itself out naturally (see CoD and mp shooters) when people lose interest. Then the market picks up and developers try to find new ways to make their games more attractive.

You wrote it. So tell us what it says instead of making people waste their time on this drivel.

Didn't write this piece. If people don't wamna waste time with this, why bother pretending to know the subject?

If you want me to comment about what the whole article is about, I'm not wasting the effort when the actual subject is just a click away.

Wait...are you telling me Schrodinger was dead?

darx189d ago
