What's worse, an open world game with invisible walls/boundaries or one set in a crater surrounded by vertical cliffs/walls?
>>
Crater is worse. TW3 felt more alive to me than any other, I like big open worlds divided into separate regions.

Is a crater worse than an island?

>>322514745

Crater. Endless randomly generated desert would be cool though

A small planet, like Fary Cry 1.

I always enjoyed that. But it'd make more sense to have those than invisible walls. At least it'd feel somewhat realistic.

I'm more into the idea of boundaries. I really like how GTA has the shark.
>>
>>322514745

Boundaries are fine, if the game is well designed you shouldn't have any reason to go near the maps edge, unless you're purposely exploring everything.

Well fuck me.

Invisible walls are the worst. A physical barrier of some kind can help maintain the immersive setting. You never hear NPCs talking about the invisible walls, but they might mention how you're stuck behind an electric fence or something. Big MT was a good example of this in Fallout New Vegas. It's much better to have your vision fuzz up and teleport back inside the barrier than just say "You can't go that way".

I always like things where an enemy tries to kill you at a certain point. Like the lurker shark or robot in the Jak & Daxter games. I especially liked those huge laser-shooting towers on Halo 3's Sandbox.

What if we surround it with infinite crevices where if you fall down you die forever?
