Top 5 Open World Action Games

Just like a good book or movie, games allow us to visit places that we could never go to in real life or let us see what it’s like to live in a different era or with a different lifestyle. While all truly great games have the ability to immerse us in another world, open world “sand box” games like GTA or Assassin’s Creed succeed at making us feel like we’re in a different place and time like no other genre can, so it’s no surprise that open world action games have rapidly become one of gaming’s most popular genres. (Assassin's Creed 2, Batman: Arkham City, Culture, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, PC, PS2, PS3, Red Dead Redemption, Saints Row 2, Xbox, Xbox 360)

why is saint row 2 here it should be 3 and no far cry 3 or prototype?

Far cry 3 should be on this list! Amazing level of detail and exploration in that game! Hell, even though Far Cry 2 had it's issues with enemy AI, I could even see that one making the list as well... but FC3 most definitley.

Sleeping Dogs and Far Cry 3...
This list is incomplete without them.
