No love for InFamous 2?
Riderz1337  +   450d ago
No inFAMOUS 2 and no Just Cause 2 =/

Yeah it is right there in one of the lists.

Unfortunately I haven't played it yet. I just bought it though.

I also never played enough Just Cause 2 to have an opinion. What I did play was fun.

A lot of other games didn't make my list that would have if we did a top 10 every week! Though if I did that I think some of the guys would want me dead.

Thanks for reading! Appreciate the time to read and comment!

I was rather pleased with everyone's choices. The funny thing is I never realized how many open world games there are!

Gotta say GTAV is one of the best open world games this gen for sure.

CTFU! at Chris who put SR3 and SR4 as the top open worlds games. Steelport has to be the worst sandbox city I have ever played.
N2NOther  +   450d ago
Like I said, Saints Row 2 is much better!
Mugen90  +   449d ago
It really is. Stilwater has interesting land ranging from city, suburbs, mountains, country, and islands. The citizens were hilarious. You also can go into A LOT of buildings! It amazes me that Volition took out all of the things that made SR2 an amazing game (my favorite sandbox game) and made SR3/SR4 in such a generic boring city.

I will tell Chris you hate him.
Mugen90  +   449d ago
Lol please do :)

For me it would probably be
RDR
Infamous series
GTAV
Skyrim
DARK SOULS!!!!!!
Campy da Camper  +   450d ago
I would only make a small change. Substitute skyrim for Oblivion and move Infamous up to number 1.
assdan  +   449d ago
Good list. but I like skyrim more. And I'm talking about it as an open world game too. I probably should move infamous to number 2...
Thoth2020  +   450d ago
I like to think I put Xenoblade on this list to be different. But damn if the music in that game isn't top-notch.
colinf438  +   450d ago
fallout 3 for me (:
Detoxx  +   450d ago
Fallout 3 is the best
xKugo  +   449d ago
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas will never lose it's crown. Contender for best game of a generation, imo.
