      "I'm a big big big fan of the original books. When my friends told me about Witcher 3, I was wary. I expected some dull cash-in. Oh, boy, I was so wrong. The Witcher 3 is not only a huge open world game (even bigger with its two expansions) but also it has the same grey and twisted stories and characters from the books. Nothing its what it seems. Everyone hides their own secrets and an iniatially simple side-quest can turn into a big adventure. And then there's the painful decisions. The situations that you'll need to tackle as Geralt are not white nor black: they are complex situations where you won't see the consequences of your actions until much further in the game. Get ready for an awesome adventure. And if you love the game, READ THE BOOKS"

      "Horizon Zero Dawn is one of the 2017 GOTYs. And the most shocking thing is that it shouldn't have worked. Because Zero Dawn picks a little from here, a little from there... But instead of a game devoid of charisma, you have a well-rounded protagonist, a robust RPG system, addictive side-quests and ROBODINOSAURS. They are the best thing about the game. The way they move, the way they attack, they multiple ways you can attack them... Zero Dawn is a big game by itself... and then there's an expansion coming this november!!!!"

Horizon Zero Dawn is totally this kind of game! I went for the open world experience, but was in total awe of the beauty: the scenery is awesome, the weather system and day cycle, wow, totally brew me away!

    WHAT’S THE MEANING?

    Open-world games are a type of video games where the player is free to roam around the virtual world, hence the name. Freedom is the defining characteristic of the open-world genre, providing the player with the ability to do what they want in the game with little to no limitations. These games are characterized by nonlinear gameplay, with fewer restrictions on the player to visit certain places on the maps because the story hasn’t progressed that far.

    DID YOU KNOW?

    Two of the top five best-selling games are open-world games. Grand Theft Auto V, the fastest selling video game, has sold over 95,000,000 copies since its release in 2013. Minecraft, on the hand, has sold over 144,000,000 copies since 2011. The appeal of these games depends on the fact that in open-world games, the whole world is the player’s oyster. In Minecraft, the player is limited only by his imagination. In GTA V, the player dictates gameplay outside the missions. In the four decades since open-world video games were first developed and released, open-world games have evolved from games played on a mainframe to games with stereoscopic 3D graphics. Improved game technology and the promise of freedom have resulted to a rise in popularity for open-world games, with prime examples being World of Warcraft, Assassin’s Creed, and the Witcher series.

      "Yes. The story sucks. It lacks a third act. True. But if you focus on the gameplay... then, oh, boy, you are in for the ride of your life. THIS is how you do an open word - sandbox experience. You can tackle the missions in any way you want. You have plenty of tools, the IA adapts to your movements, and the game has some good QOL system that the series needed from years ago. As I said, forget about the story and enjoy its almost infinite possibilities to be Big Boss, the stealthy legend."
