the open world genre has been one of the

most prominent ones in gaming and for

good reason this medium relies on giving

players a sense of escapism and what

better way to provide that than letting

them loose in a virtual world that’s

filled with opportunities and

possibilities we have experienced a ton

of great open World Games in recent

years and here are 30 of the best of all

time

Grand Theft Auto 5.

the latest entry in Rockstar’s Grand

Theft Auto has become the most

profitable entertainment product of all

time and that achievement can be

and a whole lot more with other people

in the ever evolving GTA online it’s a

game that’s brimming with possibilities

Watch Dogs too

building upon the foundations of the

underrated original Watchdogs 2 aims to

provide a better open World experience

with plenty of gameplay variety and

succeeds in that aspiration while the

open world activities might be a

standard open world affair they become a

lot more fun than usual since you have

so many options for getting to your

objective the critical path is also

pretty engaging with plenty of likable

characters and memorable missions that

you’ll encounter during your quest to

all sorts of builds

Red Dead Redemption 2. Red Dead

Redemption 2 might not be able to match

the sheer Carnage of Grand Theft Auto

but the story of the vanderland gang’s

gradual fall is easily the most

heartfelt story that Rockstar has told

to date but gameplay is also built

around learning to exist as a cowboy as

you meticulously craft your own tents on

fish and split bullets for extra damage

throughout your travels against the

rapidly changing Wild West

no man’s sky

no man’s sky is perhaps the most

interesting candidate in this list the

game started life as one of the most

disappointing games of the last

generation but with a constant stream of

meaningful updates the game was able to

turn its Fates around for the better as

it stands now no man’s sky is an

experience bursting with varied content

and one that constantly rewards and

plays with player curiosity if you

skipped past the game when it launched

now is the best time to give it another

shot

Saints Row III

Saints Row III sees your player

character leading the Third Street

Saints gang on a crusade Against The

Syndicate much like its predecessors

Saints Row III features sharp writing

that’s filled with dark jokes and fourth

wall breaks and the gameplay is just as

zany and eccentric as you would expect

from the franchise the series has a

somewhat wobbly track record when it

comes to the quality of its releases and

Saints Row the Third is one of the best

of the bunch

Just Cause 2

Just Cause 2 is all about Siri’s

protagonist Rico trying to overthrow a

dictatorship from the island of Pano the

map is extremely large with varied

biomes and you’re free to wreak havoc

points that gradually unlock further

story missions while newer entries in

the franchise spice things up with

better visuals and weather calamities

Just Cause 2 has a distinct charm that

makes it one of the best entries in the

franchise

subnautica developer unknown world

subnautica is one of the best survival

games of recent memory and it

excellently takes you through an

interesting narrative as you try to

adapt to the constantly changing

atmosphere the game has an excellent

sense of progression as you build better

tools that allow you to explore the

deeper parts of the ocean and that

Pursuit can become really addictive in a

good way of course Shadow of the

Colossus 2018 remake

much like Mafia we discussed before

Shadow of the Colossus doesn’t feature

Oodles of side content like other open

worlds but that absence is what makes

this game so special Shadow of the

Colossus really makes you feel like you

are a Lone Ranger who unfortunately has

to suck any and all remaining life out

of this already crumbled Kingdom to

achieve your goal each fight against the

colossi is different than the last and

simply put it’s an experience that will

remain with you long after the credits

roll

Marvel Spider-Man Miles Morales

Spider-Man is one of the most

recognizable superheroes and while there

is no shortage of the character’s

representation in video game form none

can claim to be as mechanically sound

and inherently fun as Marvel’s

Spider-Man Miles Morales this sequel

might be smaller in scope than 2018’s

Marvel Spider-Man but it makes up for it

with interesting side missions and

miles’s Venom powers that open up new

avenues for beating up baddies

Middle Earth shadow of War

despite the many controversies

surrounding the game’s usage of loot

boxes and microtransactions there’s

little controversy to be had when it

comes to the actual quality of Middle

Earth shadow of War Italians fight

against Sauron is ripe with danger and

you encounter plenty of procedurally

generated ort captains throughout your

journey thanks to the Nemesis system the

gameplay is really fun and exciting as

you bounce around the battlefield

thinning the enemy resistance all while

your army of faithful recruits help you

conquer insurmountable battles

radical entertainment delivered a

fantastic power fantasy with prototype

blacklight plague from spreading across

Manhattan you can run on top of

buildings consume your enemies

shapeshift weapons and glide through

buildings all of which is supremely fun

and fluid thanks to well-designed

systems and mechanics

Metal Gear Solid 5 the phantom pain

kojima’s swan song Metal Gear Solid may

have been a product of a turbulent

development cycle but those problems

take very little from this amazing

experience the phantom pain lets players

lose in the open world where you must

carry out high risk operations as you

sneak into military bases and take down

metal gear the gameplay is highly

Dynamic that blends nicely with the

systemic elements and the story takes

you through a seemingly never-ending

Rabbit Hole of conspiracies and double

crossing characters it’s a unique

experience and one that shouldn’t be

missed out on by fans of open world

games
