25 posts in and no one has mentioned Minecraft? For shame!

Minecraft is THE sandbox.

Spider-Man 2 is another fine open-world game. Good thinking chaps.

Minecraft, absolutely. I haven't played it in a while so it slipped my mind. Not the definitive open-world game for me personally though, that little title will always go to the GTA series.

Another really good open world game is Sleeping Dogs

That is a brilliant dream

I hope for a non Elder Scrolls game with dinosaurs, don't like the combat system in TES

Tried to play the first again, lost all interest in the series

They're both good, open world destruction games imo. The story is not the best in 2 but I felt it took what the first did and made a few improvements gameplay wise.

Well yeah, I think most are hoping for a much improved combat system for the next ES game. I also hope for a much greater variety of enemies (like absolutely everything possible in a fantasy setting! ). Not sure how much processing power/resources that would take but hopefully releasing it 4 years or so into the next gen would make this a possiblity.

All this dinosaur talk is reminding me of Lionhead's BC

Edit: On the topic at hand, besides the ones already mentioned I also really enjoyed Red Faction Guerrilla and Saboteur.

Am I the only one who thinks GTAIV is extremely overrated?
