CG writes: "Pound for pound, the genre of open-world action games probably has more quality titles than any other genre. I suspect that's because the barrier to entry is really high. It takes the experience of a veteran developer and the deep pockets of a publisher with resources. For a return on the investment, it often takes a prominent license, maybe something propped up by a big-budget summer superhero movie. You don't see a lot of indie Grand Theft Auto clones. At worst, you get tripe like The Godfather or Just Cause."
