The power of player agency is something that games have often utilized to elevate experiences over the years, and that’s something that can take many forms. Something that we don’t see too often is game worlds reacting to and changing in response to what the player does in truly meaningful ways, but when it does happen in a game, it’s hard not to be impressed by it. Here, we’re going to talk about a few games that did just that.

DEATH STRANDING

This was probably the most obvious choice for a list such as this one. Death Stranding is built all around the idea of players’ actions and their cooperation having a significant impact on the game’s world. What was once a barren wasteland might look entirely different based on what players were doing. A once-deserted landscape might have a long highway stretched over it now. Mountains that were once desolate and almost impassable might have networks of ziplines scattered across peaks and valleys. It’s very effectively done, and adds so much to the gameplay experience.
