Sorry for not updating yesterday. I had a cold & went to bed early (I still have it, but it's not as bad). Well, let's move on, shall we?

#103, Top 5 Sandbox/Open World Games

Of course, I'm talking about games like GTA, InFamous, & Arkham City, and NOT games like Xenoblade, Skyrim, or Zelda. Just to make things clear.

It makes me sad that you are actually totally justified in needing to make this distinction.

Anyways:

5. Just Cause 2
4. Assassin's Creed II
3. Grand Theft Auto V
2. Retro City Rampage
1. Crackdown

That's it for me. I don't usually like this genre.

I really don't play sandbox games but the top 5 I do play would be:
GTA (played a nice bit of V but am bored of it)
Minecraft (I played a free version of it a few years ago and recently bought pocket edition which I didn't play yet)
Terraria (currently playing and enjoying it)
Dead Island
Red Dead Redemption
That's all I can think of, "Of course, I'm talking about games like GTA, InFamous, & Arkham City, and NOT games like Xenoblade, Skyrim, or Zelda. Just to make things clear." if Zelda was selectable then I would of chosen it.

Not in an exact order but my favourite open world games have to be:

Grand Theft Auto V and San Andreas and Red dead redemption
Dead Island (I think this counts)
Borderlands 1 and 2
Batman Arkham series
pokemon series

I don't get it. How is Skyrim not a sandbox game? As soon as you finish the intro, you can go anywhere and do anything you want.

not really a genre I like so....
1. something I might have played and don't if it's sandbox or not
2. Minecraft
3. something I might have played and don't if it's sandbox or not
4. something I might have played and don't if it's sandbox or not
5. something I might have played and don't if it's sandbox or not


I could have just left "minecraft" there but it got too boring after playing too much(even more than any other game I've ever played too much) so I'd rather not give it the top spot

How is Skyrim not open world? From my limited experience (up to level 10) the main questline was just like Starbound. Totally optional, and there just to guide you along.

My SD Card with the game on it is just as physical as your cartridge with the game on it.
I love Nintendo, that's why I criticize them so harshly.

Technically Speaking, Skyrim is a Western RPG. From what I've experienced...that's kind of how they all are, all open and all that.

But I suppose that's where you gotta argue whether Open World is a genre or just a game mechanic. Skyrim certainly has elements of open world games, at least. But the question is: Does that make it open world?

Beyond Good and Evil 2 better be happening! In the meanwhile though, here's a fun little Let's Play of the original. Think you'll like the game if you like Zelda!

Elderscrolls: Skyrim and Oblivion (I haven't played the others) are about as open world as it gets. It's waaaay more open than some Zelda games and those are considered open world at least to a certain extent. I don't see why anyone would see it any other way. You can literally go anywhere you want in the world pretty much from the get-go.

Anyways.. mine are:
Skyrim. (Actually, Just Cause 2 has a really fun open world. So I'll pick that one as a replacement if Skyrim is not being aloud.)
Arkham City.
Majora's Mask.
Dark Age of Camelot (Do MMO's even count?)
Terraria.

Unless you're dreaming, Pokemon is about as linear as it gets. That's the opposite of open-world...

Well I completed the game and I can pretty much travel around the whole map to wherever I want to go? I would say that is pretty open and no different to a game such as GTA.

But i I had to choose another in its place then, I guess i would go with Simpsons Hit and run?

don't forget that in gen I you could "cheat" the cave that needed Flash by going through it blindly what allowed to change a little the order of the gyms, I guess at least the first gen counts as open world having secrets like that

Some great answers today (and an interesting discussion)! Here's mine:

5. Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
4. Prototype
3. InFamous
2. Red Dead Redemption
1. Ultimate Spider-Man

As for the distiction, while games like Skyrim & Zelda have open world elements, Skyrim is a Western RPG first & foremost, while Zelda is an Action-Adventure first & foremost (similar things can be said for stuff like Pokémon or Xenoblade).

When it comes to games like GTA or Assassin's Creed, they are sandbox games first & foremost. GTA has elements of shooting, driving, bowling, & golf games, for example but I sure as heck wouldn't consider it a shooter, a racing game, bowling or golf game.

Hope that clears up my position.

#104, Top 5 Sitcoms

5) Big Bang Theory (Pretty much only on this list because I don't remember watching any other sitcoms)
4) Frasier (Relies too much on deprecating humour to the main character, but still a good laugh)
3) Scrubs (Humour a bit too weird at times for my taste, but still very funny)
2) How I Met Your Mother (Holds up well until the last few seasons)
1) Friends (Overall masterpiece)
