Its more than that. Franchises which were not open world are being made open world because of the trend, and they suffer for it.
Witcher 3 is not good because its open world, its good despite it. Would have been much better without it.
Also open world, when done right, can be very fun. But most games end up being just a big checklist of pointless stuff to do, with stupid mini games and mini this and mini that.
So people can buy open world games in hopes of getting a good game, but thats not always the case.
Its not just about whining.
I would LOVE an open world game in the vein of Gothic, or Ultimate Underworld, or Morrowind, but developers just dont know how to make these without resorting to gimmicks, and pointless filler, and making games too easy and without any depth.
