So one thing i notice nowadays. whenever any open world games announced people are like "meh another open world game with crafting and vehicles, pass". it make me think of last gen the exact same reaction of people was "meh another linear FPS".
back then people praised open world games like best thing ever. even criticize games for going linear and call them dumbed down (see Crysis 2 which was dumbed down for different reason. not because going linear).
nowadays linear games are becoming best thing ever and open world games are getting hated. why the role are reversed so fast?
