Westworld is Grand Theft Auto set in a specific time period.
It’s a no rules open world game that you inhabit rather than guide an avatar through.
Want a hooker? Hire a hooker.
Want to kill the hooker and get your money back? Go ahead.a
Want to raise your wanted level and engage in massive shootouts without actually risking your real life? No problem.
It’s not a complicated concept.
And of course, some people just want to see ride horses through picturesque settings and play dress up. (Similar to driving and wrecking fast cars.)
