The Vault: Top 10 Open-World Games

GodisaGeek: "The list does not include purely sandbox titles, like Minecraft or Garry’s Mod, because open-world games with a great story often have a more profund effect; regardless of the fun of those sandbox games." (Batman: Arkham City, Crackdown, Grand Theft Auto IV, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Mafia 2, PC, PS3, Red Dead Redemption, Retro, Saints Row: The Third, Spider-Man 2, Xbox 360)

inFamous 2 would on my list, I loved that game.

I say GTA 4's and Mafia 2's open worlds, in terms of truly realized cityscapes, are the most impressive out of all of them.

Crackdown's from a purely entertainment standpoint.

While it's not on the list, I give mention to S.T.A.L.K.E.R.'s open world. The game's atmosphere is almost unmatched, let alone as far as open world games go.

I was always quite impressed by the open-world of the first 2 GTA games, those cities always felt 'alive' to me.

Interesting that nobody is saying "Fallout 3" etc?

a game like crackdown/saboteur beats out GTA:SA? wow

I can only imagine why...
GodisaGeek  +   904d ago
Personal taste, would be the reason why.
Kaos_Vll  +   904d ago
Looking at the main characters from your lists,I have ZERO doubt it's personal taste.
