GS:What's that? My group of obnoxiously privileged, ankle-tatooed friends has been kidnapped by a sadistic yet charismatic psychopath while bro-ing around a gorgeous tropical island paradise, and I'm the only one who can save them? Meh, I never liked those guys. I'd much rather spend dozens of hours exploring this amazing island, starting gunfights, driving C4-loaded jeeps into enemy camps, hunting alligators, bears, dingos, and all manner of wildlife with grenades, battling sharks with AK-47s (no, the sharks don't have AK-47s), and exploring shipwrecks, underwater caves, and airplane wrecks looking for loot. Even though the story is propped up by a memorable villain, exploration is the show-stealing star of Far Cry 3.
