The Libertarian Republic - Open World Video Games Appeal to Everyone's Inner
"Open world games are so popular because they offer something to the
consumer that few other forms of entertainment media can: freedom. Freedom
to roam to anywhere one pleases, and to do anything one wants in any order.
This is the future of entertainment media, the idea that an audience member
can not only interact with what they are experiencing, but fundamentally
change it based on her own preferences. But what makes this even more
interesting is that the demand for more and more open world gaming in the
market speaks to the truth of something Dr. Ron Paul has been practically
immortalized as having said: freedom is popular."
