20: Favourite genre?

I wasn’t sure on this one, but after a bit of deliberation I settled on open world games.

30 Day Challenge 20

I think there is a few reasons for this.

Firstly, it feels realistic. Everyone has had that long journey across the city or that trip to the city centre and open world games give me that familiarity. I like to venture across cities, so the chance to do it while not getting rained on is great. Plus, some open world games let you have a base or a home. I’m a bit of a homebody who likes building houses, so this aspect of the game really appeals to me.

Secondly, it’s the exploration. Want to go to the outer reaches of the map and see the sea or radiation infected caves? Open world games let you do this.Want to look for new exciting items in the centre of the town you just located? Open world games let you do this too. I do love building up inventories, so open world games appeal to my inner scavenger.

Thirdly, it’s the people. I love how they just live in these little virtual places, going about their day. I’m a people watcher in the real world and it fascinates me what people do while I’m in work or asleep. Same with open world games. While I’m fleeing the Los Santos Police Department, I might see a passer by and wonder what he makes of all this and how it’s affected his trip to the shops. If I hit up a raider colony in Fallout, I find myself wondering how these people became raiders and how they survive.

In a nutshell, I’m kinda nosy…and open world games let me indulge this nosiness.
