What Is Your Favorite Open World Game?

Illustration for article titled What Is Your Favorite Open World Game?

Heartbreak is stumbling on a planet, entering its atmosphere to see lush green hills and island chains surrounded by gorgeous blue oceans below—only to land and find out it’s too toxic to withstand for extended periods of time. Damn it, No Man’s Sky!


This is just one planet that dashed my hopes so far. I’m sure there will be many others. No one said space exploration would be all rainbows and roses...

...Come to think of it, I haven’t seen any of those. Time to name some things as I see fit.


So Kotaku readers, tell us: This isn’t the only exploration, open world game out there. So, what is your favorite? Maybe it is this one. Maybe it isn’t. Whatever it is, let’s talk about it!

Is... is it fair to say none? That this genre holds no appeal to me and its encroachment into games I used to enjoy (coughcoughDragonAgecough) has really frustrated me?

I’m a dick. Sorry. Enjoy the rest of your conversations about a game style you like.
