I turned off the mini map... And it's made me love the game even more.


Recommended Posts

Didn't see any posts regarding this, so I figured I'd bring it up. I recently came back to Wildlands, hadn't played it in almost a year. I'd gotten a new TV since then, and when I booted the game up, I thought to myself "Wow, the mini map seems huge..." I'd gotten used to playing Witcher 3 the past few weeks, and you can make the HUD smaller in that (which I prefer, looks cleaner to me).

So I turned off the map, and I wish I'd done it sooner. Everything feels more real. Every action has higher stakes. No enemy info, besides what you scout and mark yourself. Missed a small group of guys? You won't know till they walk up on you. Have an objective to drive to? Better pay attention to the roads, because that shortcut could seriously screw you over. Opening the map screen to check any details I need feels like my guys are looking at their own map of the area, and anything I stumble onto - it's like they're stumbling onto it too.

I'm not doing the best job explaining how this really upped the fun factor for me, but give it a shot. I'm having a ton of fun this playthrough, really feels fresh.

Turning off just about everything possible makes all games more fun and challenging for me. :rolleyes: When I watch other people play games on YouTube that have every option turned on I can hardly tell what's going on with so many icons plastered all over the screen. Then it comes to a point in the game where there's no icon or pop up telling the player what to do next and they get all bent out of shape cussing and ranting about it. :dunce: Guess they don't want to strain the grey matter in their skull by thinking a little. :o
