Versus – Linear vs Open World Games

August 12, 2016 Written by Alex Co

Do you like video games that give you the freedom to do whatever you want and where, or do you prefer games that have a tighter, clearer direction? This exact question and argument is the latest topic in the latest episode of PlayStation LifeStyle’s “Versus.”

While some people might deem linear games as “outdated,” or just a barrier forced by game designers before due to limited hardware power, that doesn’t seem to be the case, which we argue for and against in the video above. Check out who wins in our linear vs open world games face off in the video above.

Do you agree with our video? Which one do you prefer? Don’t forget, there’s no wrong answer here, but there’s a discussion to be had on it.
