Road trips are rad. You cram into a car with your best pals and explore the great unknown. Or a series of traffic-ridden highways en route to a music festival. Still, it's the journey, not the destination, that counts. I'm glad games like Final Fantasy XV, Overland, and The Flame In The Flood are finally getting it.
As crude and reductive as it can be, video games love to compare themselves to other video games. It's the easiest way complex systems and settings can be conveyed to people who haven't played (or maybe not even seen) something that's still in development.
