They're just parroting the general consensus.

Players are starting to realize that actual exploration is more fun than traveling from '?' to '?' on the map

smo is not a open world game.

big hub levels isn’t the same as one big ass fucking playarea.

Zelda did nothing special beside removing a mini map and adding some fun physics.

I am tired of seeing video game journalism articles on Sup Forums. If I wanted to read them (which I would never), I would go on their shitty websites.

But Zelda does have a minimap. And it certainly isn't the first game that lets you disable it.

What the fuck did Nintendo do to fix open world?

They fixed the genre by being like every other open world game? Oh wait, it's Nintendo so that automatically makes it "better". I forgot.

Evan Collins

SMO is a fucking open world game?

Anthony Cruz

They worked on the environment being highly interactive rather than just atrezzo for the adventure, plus made huge effort to add different navigation tools so just the act of traversing it can be engageing.

What did you do to fix yourself?

I want you to understand the normies love open world
I have a friend that refuses to play anything that isn't open world, and for bonus points he will complain if "you can't make decisions"

Sup Forums should make its own blog and random anons contribute vidya articles weekly

See pic.

Obviously he didn't play it and is just misremembering what he's read on here and other sites about letting you turn it off. I love it when people get tangled in lies online, anonymously.

lmao why don't you enlighten yourself and go read about in the countless botw analyses articles that have been published.

unlock sections of the map, it gets populated with icons and you go around hoovering them up.

So, the exact same thing as BOTW.

I've been saying for years and years that openworld games are the most linear kinds of games because it doesn't matter that there's an order or not. But I've always just got a "HURRR, WHATEVER DO YOU MEAN [expletive]?" anywhere I posted.

Until this year. Nintendo finally shut them up or at least pulled some of wool off their eyes.

Wyatt Perry

except there's a whole well thought out unique level between shrines
unlike the usual bland copy pasta environments with zero level design, random encounters and loot

David Sanchez

Constant ironic counter articles countering articles just released a couple hours ago
Would be a glorious heap of misinformation but fun.

Ayden Hill
Ayden Hill

While I agree with you completely, the problem with BOTW is the complete lack of variety in content. I only have one divine beast left and I haven't touched the game in two months because I'm sick of shrines and korok seeds and I especially don't give a shit about the anime cutscenes you can collect. The world itself is better designed than any other open world game though.

Jonathan Cruz

nintendo spent 2017 fixing them
does this sound profoundly stupid? BoTW was 5 years in development, Bing Bing Wahoo was likely being worked on after 3D World launched.

Matthew Rodriguez

Woah they added a physics system that has been present in games for god knows how long? Based Nintendo, always innovating.

lmao why don't you start forming your own opinions instead of relying on retarded video game """journalists"""?

Fucking lol
I think you mean empty plains and with random enemies wielding random weapons and also random chests with random loot

Nintendogaf is fucking disgusting

It’s hilarious to me that people like you already exist. Open world in its current state has only been around a few years yet you’ve already conformed and trained your brain to treat all open world games the same.

You are literally a brainlet.

There's nothing open world about Odyssey

BotW was great though, I must admit

Samuel Gonzalez

BoTW is exactly like ubishit games and nothing like actually good open world like Gothic 2 or Morrowind. You're the brainlet here, nintentoddler.

Jackson Long

I have over 80 hours in the game and only beaten 2 of beasts. Easily worth $60 even if I stop playing now. I could not say the same for TP. It took me ~55 hours to beat and at the 40 hour mark I was already beyond disappointed. Even though it had tons of dungeons the world itself felt empty and there was fuck all to explore outside of going to the next dungeon. It didn't do anything to innovate and it didn't feel like the OOT successor they kept harping outside of the fact that you got to play as "adult" link

Parker Fisher
Parker Fisher

I viewed with horror what the remained of my time with the game would be: It was to be, yet again, a map game.
So how the fuck did you stand BoTW?

Jace Morris
Jace Morris

Except it doesn't. Most you get is map detailing like roads/landmark names. Shrines only get placed when you find them, because they're fast travel locations.

Zachary Edwards

I agree that it's nowhere near Gothic, but let's give it credit, it's not as dumb as Ubisoft formula.

Shrines are fun cause they have what zelda enthusiast play zelda for
Moving from shrine to shrine is fun cause of free climbing + gliding + shield surfing

Asher Allen
Asher Allen

earlier this year, I threw a temper tantrum
a video game had the audacity to make me think and formulate solutions to problems on my own as I sat there literally shaking, with no hyper streamlined handholding to do the work for me

As much as I hate open world games, is this really the sort of thing (presumably) adult journalists should be confessing to in a published article? The fuck's with calling them "map games"?

Nathaniel Bailey

What the fuck did Nintendo do to fix open world?

They did nothing but since it's Nintendo making open world games that counts as 'fixing' them. These same people would say Disney was fixing porn if they decided to start producing it.

Hudson Martin

Around the same time, the N64 became more popular than PS1 on /vr/ again. Though that should have happened years ago.

Pannenkoek2012
FFXV directors saying OoT inspired them and BotW bringing OoT back into common parlance.
Dan Houser saying anyone who denies that "Mario and Zelda on Nintendo 64" influenced their games is lying.
FF7 remake getting bad press over being three parts and rumors of it coming to Switch.

You actually explore to find them. There are no shitty map markers, so you get to enjoy traversing the map and maybe find a shrine on the way.

Joshua Jones

So you're saying that these sorts of games were broken, and Nintendo is trying to fix them again?

Damn that's genius

Nintendo fixed open world design by adding wacky physics?

Nathaniel Lewis

Yeah that universally-felt asskicking BotW gave every game at E3 2016 was just taken in stride by PC and Sonybros. It did not in any wise inflame them and incite them to shitpost threads about how Switch was going to flop every hour of every day for two months from the conference in January until it's launch.

Hudson Gomez

Nathaniel Cox

It's never not okay to like Kotaku unless you're a Sup Forums memester conservative who just hates Gawker because they're liberal. In which case a mongrel dog that runs with its tail between its legs at the sight of conflict should not bark.
