Reader Discussion: Do You Prefer Open World Or Linear Experiences?

There's plenty of room for both types of games, but do you have a preference?

One of the themes of my personal top five games of last generation list was how much I enjoy linear, directed experiences. I love games like The Last of Us and Half-Life 2 that have dedicated paths leading to specific storytelling and gameplay moments, but I have also been playing a lot of Far Cry 4 the last few weeks and have been having a great time.

What type of game do you prefer? Or do you like having a cross-section of both?

Smite To Be Playable On Xbox One At World Championships

Hi-Rez Studios has announced that its Xbox One-bound MOBA Smite will be playable on that platform by the public for the first time soon. The game will make an appearance at the title’s World Championships event in January.

Eight teams will be competing for $ 1.7 million January 9 through 11. Visitors to the event will be able to catch the action live and try Smite on Microsoft’s latest console first.

Our Take
I’ve dabbled in MOBAs and have enjoyed what I’ve played so far. I know I’m more likely to find a regular group to play with on console though, so I’m eager to check out Smite when it hits Xbox One.
