So, as the title says - do you like to go exploring in games? (Even if you don't have that much time to dedicate to games, let's pretend you have) Examples would be Deus Ex (The Nameless Mod had a topic like this in it's forum, so it inspired this poll) Vampire: The Masquerade, a few RPGs, and even Unreal to a certain extent (Serious Sam actually let you do this as well, but it was more a case of patience as the areas in that were huge and you could walk it, but it'd take you a few minutes)

Definately. That's one of the reasons why I hate games like Doom3 with all my withered heart.

It's a little like secret places if they are well thaught then it's interesting to look for them not a simple blast in the wall if you now what i mean in blind alley some are really cool and when you find one of those you want to find them all for me it's the same with mod or map for exemple HL has some custom mode where exploration sometimes deliver a eye candy and i find it great.

Thats why i vote 2 ;)

Exploring levels is way fun :) When you've killed all the enemies and you find healthpacks and bonusses behind pillars and such - I love it. IF

IF

the gameplay is ok.

Well I loved the part in Unreal where you exited the Vortex Rikers ship, the music was pretty cool as well. I wish that part was bigger.

Anyways about exploring as a whole, maybe when the areas are just the right size. You can explore a bit in Serious Sam, but I hardly ever did because the areas were plain flat and after a while uninteresting. (The main levels were pretty cool though, just not the "exploration parts")

Yeah, I love exploring, provided there is something cool to see...
That's why I just love Morrowind :P

I like exploring levels too, in games like Unreal I always check the entire area before I proceed. Not in Serious Sam though, like Sang said those areas were just flat deserts with a small oase somewhere on the horizon... Takes too long lol. :P

In games like Unreal - yeah I do but as for the rest - pretty much no. When the mood is right I like exploring simple Duke levels but mostly I just try to finish them asap. Secrets are not my field of expertise.

But in Final Fantasy games exploration is half of the whole idea.

I'm the kind of person who has to see EVERYTHING, which is one of the reasons that I don't particularly get into RPGs or anything of that nature. However, I cannot stand it when you have a straight path the whole time, and it's even more aggravating when you have consolish invisi-walls.

Yeah invisible walls are annoying. If the player is blocked, there should at least be a reason for it that works within the in-game world (like a barricade or steep rocks or even a locked door).
