I'd probably put the Witcher 3 above it, but it's close. Skyrim's world was definitely amazing.

I wouldn't say it's close. The Witcher 3's world is better than Skyrims by a country mile. Skyrim is actually pretty damn lifeless for large expanses of it. W3s is bigger, prettier, and you can't walk in any direction for more than five minutes without something interesting happening.

witcher 3 had huge areas that also were barren.

Why does everyone forget about Dying Light pretty damn good open world

This article is just absurd. Skyrim was and still is a great game. But what CD Projekt Red did with the Witcher 3 is just leaps ahead of anything Bethesda has created for open world content. Skyrim isn't even the best open world game created by Bethesda...

Thats quest wise. Skyrim, all of the interesting stuff revolves around character progression and discovery, something the Witcher is lacking in.

@ Myst-Vearn- How dare you blasphem the Witcher 3. Dislikes for you

The title is dumb but in context, Skyrim did amazing with the tech at the time. The Witcher 3 is amazing; for the tech.

It's good, but i like maps designed with enough variety and unique landmarks that i can pinpoint my location and navigate easily without having to use a compass/marker/map, and honestly 80% of the time skyrim looks exactly the same. Personally i think Red Dead and FFXIV do a FAR better job at that in the realm of more rural landscapes

Maybe when it released, but not anymore imo.

Princess_Pilfer1908d ago

Not when it was released either. It has the dire misfortune of competing with Morrowind and Fallout New Vegas.

Ristul1908d ago

I never played Morrowind, New Vegas was great though. Obsidian know their stuff.

Thank you for saying Morrowind

iiorestesii1908d ago (Edited 1908d ago )

Not even. Even since! Meaning theres better open worlds prior to that, and better since. Skyrim sold on its opening 2 hours.

DragonKnight1907d ago

Dark Souls does not have an open world. It has an interconnected semi-linear world.

Immorals1908d ago

Witcher 3 definitely took that title.
