I have had many years of playing games, moving from the old faithful PlayStation one through to Xbox 360, to Xbox One, edition of my PlayStation 4 and now my Gaming Computer.

Without further to do, here are my favourite Open World games:

I think the easiest thing to do here would be to break them up into the different platforms that I have played them on. (These may not have been played on the “optimal” devices, but I am looking more at the gameplay as opposed to the graphics).

PS4

Fallout 4

I think that we all know that this is a classic game, the whole series, in fact, is a classic series. When it comes to Open world, however, this game sings volumes to me. I love games when you can walk to the other side of the map; (let’s be honest it will take you forever.) without having to stick to the story line. (Sorry Shaun)

Mass Effect Andromeda

This game was so much fun, I do not rate it as highly as I rate Fallout 4 however, but there are amazing things in this game. Obviously, you can see the similarity between this and Dragon Age Inquisition, obviously, this is because they are made by the same company. I far prefer the story behind Dragon Age Inquisition but to each his own.

Xbox One

GTA 5

Now, this is a marvellous game, so much to do and so little time, it really makes a big difference that you can switch between the different characters. I love seeing where Trevor lands up. Long summary short, this is a fantastic open world game.

The Witcher 3

This game needs no introduction, this might be my favourite game of all time, it is the perfect open world game. Not only that, the DLC’s are magnificent! Oh, I could wax lyrical about this for hours and hours.

Far Cry 4

I really enjoyed this game, Far Cry 3 was a masterpiece in terms of gameplay and that plot though. This game was great (perhaps not as great as its predecessor, but still a worthwhile buy), I like being able to run around and view different areas by liberating those radio towers.

Dying Light

I am not usually a fan of first person games, I have really tried to get into them and this was probably the first game to catch my eye. Mostly because it helped create the panic that is associated with running away from zombies. The open world of this game was so much fun, parkour, when you have to, makes the game that much more exciting. I have not played any of the add-ons, but I have heard good things from those who have.

 

PC

Skyrim

We all know this game, if you have ever played an Open World Game then money says that this is one that you end up comparing all others to. Most of the creators of games following this masterpiece have all said that this was the one they compared their own games too. I am currently replaying this game for about the 9th time and am still loving it! Dovahkiin!

Xbox 360

Red Dead Redemption

I mean if we are going to talk about an incredible game then this one is right up there, wild west open world. Yes Please. I loved everything about this game. The graphics were so amazing for when it was made not to mention the plot seriously tugs at the old heart strings!

Assassins creed black flag

Finally, you can’t talk about Open World games without mentioning an Assassins Creed game. (I am so excited for Origins!) but this is the game that stands out the most for me. Not for the story line… I found that a little weak, but to each his own. I loved sailing my ship around and basically being a pirate. That was the best thing about this game.
