Now I'm a huge open world game fan. I can't get enough of this type of game... or at least that's what I thought.
A lot of you may be familiar with that feeling of boredom when you pick up a controller and turn on your system of choice. No matter what game you put in your boredom does not cease. Well I've got that right now with open world games... and I've got it bad. I find myself growing endlessly tired of traveling across a huge map to play a mission, or playing all of the side quests every time they're available before moving on with the main story line. Having a huge backlog of games I want to finish doesn't exactly help either.
As of now the games I've bought that I need to finish are: Dead Space, Red Faction: Guerilla, Assassin's Creed II, Batman: Arkham Asylum, Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction, Fallout: New Vegas, Dead Rising 2 (I just need to beat the last boss), The Sly Collection, Donkey Kong Country Returns, Call of Duty: Black Ops, and a few more. Thank god these are all great games!
At the moment I'm playing Donkey Kong Country Returns, The Sly Collection, and Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction. Three games (five if you count Sly Collection as 3 games) from three of my most favourite franchises of all time. All three brought me back to the good ol' days and all three have brought my gaming back to life! I can't express how much I love these games and I can't believe how relaxed I am playing these games. It definitely has to do with the linearity of the games as I feel exactly as I did when I played Uncharted and then, sequentially, Uncharted 2.
Moral of this blog: I need to play more linear games.
Does anyone else get like this about open world games?
