Josef Fares, the man behind A Way Out and Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, expressed his clear pro-linear games sentiment in opposition to open worlds.
Depends on the story for me
Not every game needs to be open world.
I'd say some of the best games this gen have been linear, be it Uncharted 4 or God of War. So I personally welcome more games like those games. A Way Out was a cool and interesting twist on that formula and I hope Josef's next game will have co-op too.
Linear but with a hub and open levels to explore is the best way to do it.
I do too. I'm sick of every game being open world now. It always kills the pace of the story. GoW, Spider-Man , Yakuza and RDR 2 are the rare exceptions because they are fun to play in the open world . I'd take linear every time. Open world killed MGS for me. Uncharted and TLOU are great because it's linear, open world would only hurt it. I gues it does depend on the game.
Yeah it sucks there aren’t more good linear games
Exactly! Theres nothing wrong with linearity. I love Uncharted and FFX got too much flak for its linearity, when it delivered on everything else.
