Open world can have this interesting benefit

So i was thinking. Have anyone of you looked at the ring and wondered. Whats over there? What is below this shaft. Where do these pipes go? Whats beyond the mountain? So many times I have felt looking at the ring how it works and where what is. Whats on that island. Etc

This seems like a very good aspect to open world design. There is a lot to explore.

I am not 100% pro infinite. But this 1 positive thought came to me so I am sharing it with others.

I am very uncertain with it.

What’s it be a bunch of open spaces with nothing in them claiming but oh you can go here and here muhhh open world
Like no.
