Twinfinite Writes: The best open world games of all time have one thing in common, great variation to what you can see and do. Here are the 10 best open world games ever made, at least so far.
Great article. I was going to write my own about open world videos, but i think i will wait a year or two now, lol.
Saved you 10 clicks. 10. Batman: Arkham City 9. Grand Theft Auto V 8. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain 7. Xenoblade Chronicles 6. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt 5. Fallout 3 4. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim 3. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2. Horizon: Zero Dawn 1. Red Dead Redemption
As much as it pisses me off to not see SotC in there, that's a pretty good list...
MGSV and Xenoblade Chronicles are not top 10 open-world. Horizon is an amazing game but it can't be above Skyrim and Witcher 3 . Silly list.
if thats the list its terrible
Can't put GTA V above San Andreas
GTA 5 is fifth? lol
The list is fine. Not so sure about the order.
Why is Horizon above Witchers? And I don’t think MGS deserves a spot on this list.
Open World as in a big open space with no real use/meaning like GTA? How can one game in a series be nr1, when there have been 5 GTAs, 6 Elder Scrolls and what not ... RDR is weak compared to 6 Elder Scrolls games. Gothic 3, Risen 1 ... Even Black Flag us open world. What about guild wars or wow ...
Blasphemy to think GTA San Andreas did not make the list. But I guess GTA5 covers up for it. Am surprised Horizion Zero dawn was high up, I really love that game. Still it all balls down to personal opinion.
Horizon deserves to be that high, it was a damn excellent game. Unlike GTA it stands on its own two feet without obnoxious controversial nonsense to cover up a shallow foundation.
@skan Even if you take away all the “obnoxious controversial nonsense” GTA V is still a really great game.
So open - in fact - that it takes ten pages to contain them.
Twinfinite are back with their "of all time" articles :/
with top x with x number of pages...stupid design for a website in this day and age...
It's a dirty, cheap way to drive ad impressions. It's a bush league and scumbag move.
The Witcher 3, gta 5, fallout 3 etc great games
Xenoblade was outstanding as well. Underrated will be sleeping dog
Sleeping dogs was outstanding! Loved it.
Fallout 4 had a far better open world than Fallout 3 though, whatever one's opinions of the role playing.
There are close to ten this year.
zelda, arkham city should not be on this list. one has mediocre open world and other is not even open world.
Batman ak for the third game, of the series. Ak, was the most disappointed and mediocre open world.
I'm not sure about greatest but some of my favorites I've had the most fun with are San Andreas, Fallout 3, Red Dead Redemption, New Vegas, The Witcher 3, Fallout 4, HZD, Breath of the Wild, AC Origins and Spider-Man. I'll give The Phantom Pain a shout out because while it was repetitive I still had loads of fun!
New Vegas is an awesome game.
Personal favorite open world. 1. RDR 2. Witcher 3 3. MGSV 4 Zelda BOTW 5. GTAV
No Skyrim? xd
Dont know. I just think bugthesda games are garbage and highly overrated. Sorry if it offended you.
Not offended at all. Just surprised to see someone who shares my very unpopular opinion.
Ah I see Haha.
how about Assassin's Creed Origins open world? Just Cause 3?
AC Origins, hell yes. JC3? F*** no! JC2 was better in every way.
Fallout 3 would be #1 to me
I would add AC:Origins, but the list is too solid to change anything ;/ Or maybe we could change MGSV - great game with open structure but is it really "open world"?
RDR is the greatest game of all time IMO
