I want it all to end in a climax... Thats the problem with the open world just like real life they dimish and wither into nothing..... It needs to be a big ending for you to come away like you beat it instead of wandering about aimlessly forever.
Red Dead got it right there was a point from which you could not return... If it's not in the final product then it needs to be DLC ending otherwise fail and it will need to come pretty quick otherwise people will be shouting about how boring it is after playing it for 20-30 hours... Saw it happen with RAGE and guess what no DLC for that game because it left a bitter taste in the consumers mouths and ultimatley failed and bethudsa pulled the plug on any plans.
Sorry to sound negative but I speak the truth
If that happens you can kiss farcry 4 goodbye especially after farcry 2's issues

All I can do is hope they get it right it just does not add up that you can stil roam about after the story is over... Surely the goal is to ultimatley escape even if you conquer it... He has to save the girl?
I suggested this before but the only way is have a mission that from which you cannot return from that ends it.... and ends it in a climax with big set pieces... So perhaps it becomes unlockable from the menu as a seperate linear mission to escape? I would like that TBH but that you can still approach from multiple angles but has a time limit and is very difficult like a challenge mission.
I'm talking about volcanoes going off with earthquakes and tsunamis while you try to get away whilst fighting an enemy in complete chaos..... Like the death star blowing up I'm right and i know it
I agree DLC ending = lame and may never see the light of day just like RAGE
Perhaps I should put it another way if a story feels like it has no end and no point to move from then at first it maybe intriguing and you want to know how it really ends but the realisation soon dawns on you that there is no end to it and somone is having you on or pulling your leg,
Imagine a movie without an ending so to speak it would bomb in the box office entertainment needs to have highs and lows and generally it is considered a good thing to end on a high with a slow diminish to the story not a prolonged ongoing experience
This is rules and expectation fulfilment of entertainment not trying to rewrite the book and failling it's been in practive and is working for longer than I could ever imagine

no doubt sharks will be included in this! (maybe more than one way of dying when leaving the islands. (Sharks as one variant and maybe drowning due to loss of energy as another) there are so many animations that could be created for this.
