Video games have become unique as they offer an interaction that is hard for any other form of entertainment to emulate. Bringing gamers into the virtual world, pursuing the journey with heroic characters except for the eradication of violence – this has become a common formula that popular games apply. Most games tell their own stories, and at the same time force players to have almost only one way to play, following the manufacturer’s lead. But in the opposite direction, there are also many games that promote freedom, allowing players to freely do what they like.
Fallout: New Vegas
Open world games are often designed with freedom, flight and creativity in mind for players. This also helps gamers break the conventional framework in games and also makes it the most popular genre at the moment. And Fallout: New Vegas is one of the clearest examples.
The key point in Fallout: New Vegas is which side the player will choose to support. There are names to mention such as NCR, Caesar’s Legion, Mr. House or even myself. And in the game, gamers can do whatever they want, as long as they make the land of Vegas better.
Originally belonging to the classic Souls game series, however, Elden Ring broke all the inherent rules of this genre. Taking the player to travel into a vast open world, Elden Ring is not limited to any problems, actions and can freely explore the vast Lands Between.
No need to follow any order or route, even Elden Ring players can follow the trails to freely choose the order in which to fight the game’s monsters.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is one of the most popular open-world role-playing games of all time. Skyrim has a main story and instructions throughout the game, but nothing is mandatory, even with the main plot. Gamers can choose to play the way they want.
Depending on their preferences, gamers can become the savior of the world, or more simply, join the dark clique or become a great blacksmith in the world with forged and cast items. It doesn’t matter how we play, as long as we have fun.
