Here is my challenge: start a new game on an open world game that also has fast travel (the elder scrolls games, witcher 3, the fallout games, batman Arkham origins, etc...) and never fast travel EXCEPT for when the game forces you to (like when leaving Emiyr in witcher 3). I'd try it, but I don't have the patience for it. Oh if you choose gta 5, you can ride a taxi but you can't make it go faster or skip the trip entirely

This is basically my entire time spent with Morrowwind. Good way to pick up the trails of new quests.

This is how I play Skyrim all the time. Which is probably why I never get that far into the story lol.

I try to play like this for the most part but sometimes I will fast-travel if I get tired of running across the map. But I feel more immersed into the world if I avoid fast-traveling.

First playthrough I normally fast travel but after that I usually get a mod to disable fast travel if available.

Games like these need more fun and exciting ways for overland travel.

Fallout: Jetpacks, customizable vehicles, helicopters.

Elder Scrolls: Pegasuses, horses with mounted combat, Dwemer-car.

I want a hover board or a flying Delorean.

Agree.
Same here.

I only fast travel if a game forces me to.

At first in the game I don't fast travel but maybe like halfway into it I'll start doing it normally. If I've traveled the path many times I know there's not more stuff.

For a map as big as Skyrim I can't imagine traveling only on foot the entire game. It will take probably an hour to get from one end of the map to the other. I barely have 2 hours nightly anymore.

I think it depends entirely on the game for me. If the land is just devoid of anything interesting and nothing ever happens then walking around it without fast travel can get boring rather fast but if there's a chance of a random event (good or bad) occurring on your travels then I would be much more likely to ignore any kind of "assisted travel".

I fast travel if the bulk of things to do in an open world is tedious, super repetitive, and really distracting from the main experience of the game. I don't have time for that stuff anymore.

But this was sort of a funny thing about Spider-man PS4. They had fast travel, but it rarely made sense to use it. The load times were just long enough and zipping through the city was just fun enough that it always felt like, "Eh, I'll just swing there. Be there in about the same amount of time, plus traversal is actually itself kind of fun."

The fast travel system in God of war is annoying af.

I normally just go to where I need to be. The only time I really utiilized the fast travel mechanic is when I want to get closer to a mission for like GTAV. (And I am pretty sure I could click on the mission icon and just start it right off the bat...)

It was because of my passion for exploring that I was able to find The Café of Broken Dreams and find and recruit Dogmeat in Fallout 2.
