Open World Games have totally changed our perspective for video games. The linearity of video game was a big issue in 80s and 90s. Players were not able to roam freely in the virtual world and have to follow a certain set of rules so that the game can proceed. Popular video games such as Mario, Donkey Kong, Pacman and Sonic are perfect examples of this. Even though this does not impacted directly to the sales of these popular video games but still there was a craving among video game fans to take full control of the game.
With advancement in the video game development sector, companies were able to code games where players are given freedom to some extent. However it was the success of Grand Theft Auto series from Rockstar Studios that totally changed the modern video game scenario. Open world Games became the most popular gaming style and almost all companies were jumping into this sector.
By Mid 2000s video game companies were producing Massively Multiplayer Role Playing Games (MMORPG) where not only players can roam freely and create their own characters but also can interact with other players in the virtual world.
