Non-linear retrogaming?

Got to love the freedom to just to muck around as you please in the game world. Any titles that come to mind?

Hello there,

Welcome to the EAB, I am sure you will like it here, theres plenty of mischief to get into

for me here are as some games come to mind first
  • Hunter
  • Elite
  • Elite 2: Frontier
  • Mercenary
  • Captive (*arguably*)
  • whales Voyage
  • Uropa
  • k240 (*arguably*)

those are some that come to mind... theres bound to be plenty!

Midwinter, a variation on Hunter, both are openended.

I think you need to differentiate between openended and nonlinear.

openended = freedom in world exploration, nonlinear = freedom in storyline manipulation.

That said, I'm unable to name a nonlinear Amiga game...

Edit: after a Wiki, I see some use the term "nonlinear" more loosely, merely as "choice". I think perhaps "sandbox" is the more correct term for these type of games, as is shown by this link:

What about the first GTA?
I would drive around for ages
Or is this limited to Amiga games?
