It may sound obscure, but the fun lies in the open ending situations only…
Open world and open ends can be considered same thing here as in games, movies and books, it is up to you to form an opinion as “what the heck was that? “.
The whole gaming world is divided into two categories, at the root level, and those two categories are :
1. Open world games.
2. Closed world games.
Both types of games has its advantages but open world games scores more as it let the players to dwell more into the game storyline and figure out the hidden easter eggs in the games. The game designers are super smart people, programming a game is 100x tough task than programming an application software because the application software needs to work in a specified way but in games, you need to reach the end of the storyline, doesn’t matter what path your are choosing and it is up to the game designers to figure considering the gaming constraints what players could think of while playing the game .And smart people have the tendency to put easter eggs or cultural references in their jobs. These are few cultural references and easter eggs in popular video games.
Now back to the topic of this post, “open ends” enables you to think through the situations and comes up with new innovative ways to solve a given problem. For some people, playing open world games are quite a difficult task, as you need to explore them carefully as to proceed to the next level.
What are the advantages of the open world games?
1. It keeps the thing interesting.
2. It forces you to think more and more to keep check that you hadn’t missed anything.
Open games can be addictive in nature and even I have seen people who like playing open world games starts playing closed world games like open world games.
Now even the game designers have started implementing open world scenarios in the closed world games in the form of side-missions.
So keep on enjoying open ended scenarios because you can change it accordingly.
