Linear experiences in video games can be enjoyable but sometimes, you want the freedom to cut loose. As games have grown more complex over the years, the sheer amount of ways to play has grown exponentially. It’s not just the immersive sim genre either, which still has some absolute classics. More games are simply embracing sandbox elements, emergent gameplay and open-ended goals. Let’s take a look at 15 games you can play in multiple different ways.

Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain

While some story elements didn’t quite go over well, Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain does a great job presenting a large stealth sandbox with emergent gameplay. Missions can be tackled at different times, presenting varying challenges but the Revenge system ensured that enemies reacted to your tactics and took appropriate counter-measures. You could sneak through bases using cardboard boxes and tranqs, but on the other hand, rocket punches. Coordinate with companions to efficiently wipe out camps, or just FULTON anything and everything back to Mother Base.
