I have found on Youtube a video representing an evolution of the open world games since 1981 and April 2019. There are almost 30 years of gaming, meaning that everybody, from 10 to 50 years old, will get his WOW moment. Just wait for it :-). I had it on Grand Theft Auto, the very first GTA (1997) – on PC, there were no PlayStations back then.
Open world games are those games that are offering to the players a virtual world in which anyone can explore freely, beyond the game story. Depending on the game, there is a wide variety of actions that you can do, the limitations being set by the environment and technology. Grand Theft Auto III (2001) set a standard that has been used since.
Now that you have seen this, what was your Wow moment?
