This week in Extra Punctuation, Yahtzee declares that the open-world video game is dead, at least in the AAA space.

Extra Punctuation Transcript

The open world is dead. Sorry to have to break it to you. It wasn’t an easy death, either. A very prolonged, very painful death from being chained to a milking machine and having all its blood, bones and internal organs sucked out through its nipples. You might think this declaration premature considering that open world games have been coming out constantly for years and yet more are announced for the future both near and far, but don’t be fooled. That’s just the noise being made by all the dead flesh and organs getting slurped back and forth through the machinery.
