You don't seem to understand the difference between being presented with 10-20 open worlds the first time you arrive & having other paths where experienced players can be invited into worlds and are shown other options.
I'm talking about options presented to people who have never played & who are not being invited to a world. 10-20 open worlds = this game must suck. At best, it takes a long time to decide = people change their minds & don't sign up. Very few options = this game must be good & if I don't pick one of the few openings I might miss out.
If you've sold millions of dollars of stuff on the Internet join the debate. If you drive a truck STFU. You don't know.
