10 Largest Worlds in Recent Gaming History

"When we think about those really impressive open worlds that have wowed us over the years, we often retreat to the past. Daggerfall, San Andreas, GTA3 etc. All worlds that were large enough to get totally lost in, but this was some time ago. Whilst the first impressions of these games will last a lifetime, it's time to have a think about the games in recent memories that had equally massive open worlds. Read on for ten of the largest that came to mind."

No Just Cause 2 or Arma 2? I understand MMORPG tend to be HUGE, but those 2 I remember them to be absurdly big.

as far as i know, Just Cause 2 is the biggest out of the bunch (except minecraft)

Eyeco2151d ago

yeah also Far Cry 2, Guild Wars, Test Drive Unlimited and Operation Flashpoint I remember being quite big

They forgot about FUEL. 14000 square kilometers not big enough? I know that Minecraft is the largest but Fuel is also pretty epic in detail and realism.

L.A Noire have 8 square miles and will require 60-80 minutes to traverse by car, Arma 2 Jc2 really? u sure? MEH!

Arkham City is in this list? I loved exploring but there are bigger out there (Fallout 3, Oblivion, Just Cause 2, and more).

I wouldn't say Dark Souls is very big. I'm sure JC2 was bigger, here is a map I got with the CE of the game:

@ Rashid Sayed
I appreciate the lists in the comment section, but just FYI the mods are busting everyone's balls about doing that... although with one bub I don't think you really care :D Anyway, I appreciate you listing them.

On topic: Arkham City was big for an action game, but there are much bigger worlds in other genres. I think inFAMOUS 2 was bigger than AC for an action game and LA Noire was big too.

Title says '10 Largest Worlds ...' yet it lists maps that aren't really big i.e Batman Arkham City and Dark Souls over maps that are big i.e JC2

bloodybutcher2151d ago

they forgot to mention "Pong"

Pintheshadows2151d ago

It's by no means recent but Daggerfall always stands out to me as the biggest world of all time.

And JC2 should definately be on this list considering it eclipses half of the titles that are included.
