I didn't read the article yet but i can name a few.
Farcry,assassin creed,batman,shadow of mordor,witcher 3,metal gear,dragon age
GTA 5 (again ) the crew,sunset overdrive,the division.

Those are the ones i'm looking forward to owning.
Adexus  +   364d ago
I'll be getting all those except The Crew, I wanted it until I tried the beta and it didn't impress me in the slightest, the map size is nice but everything else is done rather poorly.
guitarded77  +   363d ago
Yeah, I want The Crew to be awesome, but I haven't been impressed yet. Great idea... they just need better execution.

The list includes Destiny, which isn't really an open world game. It has some big maps like Halo, but the hub takes you from place to place.

I know Bloodborne is a ways off, but it's one of my most anticipated open world games.
wastedcells  +   363d ago
Played the crew at E3 and I can't even remeber it lol. It was nothing special sadly. Hoping for a really cool next gen racing game one day but the crew isn't it. They should make a racing game that isn't so focused on open worlds and more focused on really fun, fast and crazy racing like in the ps2 generation when burnout and NSF HP2 came out and everyone loved racing games.

All I want right now is fallout 4!

They missed First Light.
Randostar  +   363d ago
This article is about games, first light is a stand alone DLC.
BiggCMan  +   363d ago
Yes but it being standalone is what makes it....a standalone game ^_^
ICANPLAYGAMES2  +   363d ago
Well, the ones that I'm interested in, and getting are Batman, Shadow of Mordor, Witcher 3, and Metal Gear. Though I'll probably also get GTA 5 again, don't know about the Crew yet (it's on the radar peripheral). Also, put me down for Xenoblade Chronicles, even though it isn't listed.
legionsoup  +   363d ago
This list is basically exactly what my list is as well.
Mr-Dude  +   363d ago
Witcher, Metal Gear, FC4, Shadow Of Mordor and Batman are my games. Destiny is coming next month, this game is going to eat up my little time I have. GTA V remake is a big no for me. I didn't enjoy it on the PS3. Maybe AC-Unity, but I wanna see more of it first.
TRD4L1fe  +   364d ago
Destiny, Nuff said
TimeSkipLuffy  +   364d ago
Destiny doesn't feel like an open world game to me. It took elements of a MMO and open world game but after playing the beta it rather seems more like a Halo shooter with other elements mixed in. It was still fun though.
geddesmond  +   364d ago
I played the beta and then I canceled my pre order. Game has some good qualities but it just felt too repetitive. Incoming disagrees in 5,4,3,2,1 go.
BiggCMan  +   363d ago
I think a lot of that can be written off because of it being a beta though honestly.

You really only had 4 or 5 missions to do, and you did them a bunch of times. Then in Crucible you only had 4 levels to play on over and over again doing the SAME game mode.

I don't believe that's the games fault, it's just that it was a beta. The only negative thing about the beta was that so many people felt that it was a game, forgetting that it was just an actual beta test.

This turned out to hurt the game because of a lot of peoples stupidity.
purp13m0nk3y  +   363d ago
I agree. I had fun with the Beta, but is was very repetitive. The weapons all felt the same too.

I cancelled my preorder too. I'll wait for a few reviews and some user feedback before I drop for the full game.

It had moments of sheer awesome, but I walked away from the beta with an overall 'meh' feeling.

I couldn't deal with the whole walk for a few hundred meters, kill a group of generic baddies, walk a few hundred metres, kill a group of generic baddies, rinse and repeat mission structure that EVERY SINGLE mission followed.

It would have been ok except the combat wasn't even all that interesting. And I blame that on the bland uninteresting enemies and bland repetitive arsenal.

I not saying it's a bad game. It's just not particularly interesting. My favourite part by far was the exploration of the post apocalyptic world. It's just a pity that area was so small. Definitely does not feel "Open World" at all.
Cyanide85  +   363d ago
I have to say that I'm really looking forward to Destiny still, as stated before what we played was a beta and the full game will be much bigger and I'm still hoping that the missions will get more varied further on in the game.

Saw a video of a dev showing off what u get to do after level 20 and to me it seems like the game will be much more fun later on plus all the DLC bungie promised hope that they will deliver on that to.

Maybe I'll be disappointed but only the future will tell, I just really want a good new FPS.
peshkavusCA  +   363d ago
@geddesmond it's just Beta... Have fun with other games though..
geddesmond  +   362d ago
I understand it's just a beta but I've been an EU Sony beta tester for 6 years now and tested a lot of games. You don't get a whole lot of the game in a beta buts its main core is there and that's the repetitive part.

Missions all felt the same just like Purpemonkey stated. Walk, enemies, kill, repeat. Not to mention all the enemies respawning so quickly.

@PeskavasCA

I will have fun playing other games don't you worry. Thats the beautiful thing about gaming. If you don't like one game then there's always another to take its place.
theDivision  +   364d ago
Fallout 4, the division, next read dead. Need there be anymore?
psman012  +   364d ago
Those three + The Phantom Pain. Ground Zeroes got me so hyped for the full game.
bloodybutcher  +   363d ago
Yes, the witcher 3!
KnightRobby  +   364d ago
AC Unity and Destiny this year are going to be my main games. Can't wait to try the new LOTR game though!
Clumpy  +   364d ago
Great list. Surprised neither Zelda U or Xenoblades Cronicles is on the list. That aside, the open-world game i'm looking the most forward to is Bloodborne.
Gatsu  +   364d ago
MGSV: The Phantom Pain is all I need and want.
BiggerBoss  +   363d ago
I accidentally disagreed but metal gear solid 5 is (obviously) my most anticipated game. For as much hate as ground zeroes gets it had some of the best gameplay of any game released this gen
Gatsu  +   363d ago
No worries friend :), accidents happen. Also I agree about GZ even though so many hated it because of price or short story mission, it really has been one of the most fun gameplay I have played in a long time. TPP is gonna be pretty nuclearly awesome :D !
#6.1.1 (Edited 363d ago ) | Agree(1) | Disagree(0) | Report
Moe-Gunz  +   363d ago
My most anticipated as well.

I'M NUCLEAR!
Gatsu  +   363d ago
I'M WILD!... I just had to lol ;D.
Donnywho  +   363d ago
Yes and yes and yes
UltraNova  +   363d ago
War...war changes people.
oIITSBIIo  +   364d ago
Batman AK and TW3 is the only open world games I'm excited for .
But I will try the other games for sure .

DeusEx-Machina  +   364d ago
I'm looking forward to xenoblade x.
LOGICWINS  +   364d ago
AC Unity and Arkham Knight. A few months ago I would have mentioned the Witcher 3 but that had an underwhelming E3 showing, at least in my opinion. It also seems like one of those open world games that might be too big for its own good.

kcuthbertson  +   363d ago
Are you kidding me? What have you seen from the Witcher 3 that has underwhelmed you? If you really think that ANOTHER AC game is going to be better than The Wild Hunt, then I feel reallly bad for you.
LOGICWINS  +   363d ago
I EXPECT the Witcher 3 to be better than Unity, but Im going by what I have SEEN so far.
Fusion_Ninja  +   364d ago
No Dragon Age: Inquisition on the list?! WTF
Omnisonne  +   364d ago
yeah i expected it to be here too, mayb the author forgot.. cause Dragon Age is alot higher on my list than Shadow of Mordor
PrinceOfAllSaiyans  +   364d ago
-Destiny
-AC Unity
-MGS5
-The Witcher 3
-Bloodborne

1-11 MGSV
feraldrgn  +   363d ago
Open world I'm most looking forward to?
Witcher 3 & MGS5.
lex-1020  +   363d ago
For those who don't want to load the page 11 times.

11 Mad Max
10 Batman Arkham Knight
9 Middle Earth Shadow of Mordor
8 Dying Light
7 The Crew
6 Metal Gear Solid V The Phantom Pain
5 Destiny
4 Tom Clancy's the Division
3 The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt
2 Assassin's Creed Unity
1 Far Cry 4

These kind of lists annoy me because each image is loaded on a separate URL so the site gets bonus clicks to make you look through the whole list.
Potnoodle999  +   363d ago
You sir are a legend :))
Jsoc  +   363d ago
I'm getting all, I retired and have the time to play
potedude  +   363d ago
Good stuff, I was looking for someone to do that. Thanks.

The Witcher looks amazing, nice change to the Tom Clancy franchise direction and I'm intrigued by dying light too. Some hours gonna be wasted by me...
OtakuDJK1NG  +   363d ago
Zelda Wii U
Xenoblade Chronicles X
DarXyde  +   363d ago
Good list, but leaving out Xenoblade Chronicles X is shameful.

ON the list, the games I'd want to play are Batman: Arkham Knight, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, The Crew, The Division, and my personal favorite and most anticipated game of this generation: Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain.
aLiEnViSiToR  +   363d ago
Where is Dragon Age: Inquisition O_o
Moe-Gunz  +   363d ago
I dislike when websites have that slider thing.
Subaruwrx  +   363d ago
How about adding 'No Man's Sky' to the list. It's not just an open world game, it's an open Universe game. I'm really looking forward to this game.
Mr-Dude  +   363d ago
Yes! Looking forward to that game
deafdani  +   363d ago
Judging by the articke, I guess the author doesn't play Nintendo games / systems, because there was no mention of Zelda Wii U or Xenoblade Chronicles X, both stated for release next year.
Kingdomcome247  +   363d ago
So many great games, I personally am most excited for Arkham Knight. Definitely a lot if GOTY contenders for both 2014 & 2015.
objdadon  +   363d ago
September 9 is all i care about! It is my destiny!
Mr-Dude  +   363d ago
Hear ya!
iluvmaPS3  +   363d ago
Until Nintendo gets back to harcore gaming and agood hardware who cares
