Top 30 Best Open World Games of This Generation You Absolutely Need To Play

Open world games are a tough genre to develop for, whether it's the copious amounts of activities or the enormous sandbox that must be created. That being said, some games make it look effortless, even with their odd warts.

Join us as we rank the top 30 open world games of this generation. We'll only be looking at the quality of the open world with its side quests and activities throughout rather than the quality of story-telling so keep that in mind.

This list is in random order.

    I think breath of the wild wouldn't age well, but witcher 3 would outshine ever forever.

  • Brian Leach

    Far cry 3 is better than 4

  • Faux Aphid

    Where is Dragon Age Inquisition?

  • Mike Smith

    Zelda is the best, as usual.

  • jizz jizz

    I think outta the whole list I actually enjoyed dying light the most to be honest it was a hell of a time for me.

  • 2332 221

    the witcher should be number 1 , why ? great soundtracks , the music is insane and also the best story ive ever played so far ,, iam already playing a lot of games and this is art never dies

  • Ragian Azariah

    witcher 3 should be one

  • How Big is the Map?

    Kingdom Come Deliverance has got the most beautiful game world I have ever walked in.

  • Kuba Kajszczak

    No, no. W3 is 1st, Zelda is awesome but not as much. I can agree with rest easly.

  • Joel Pais

    Zelda BOTW is definitely the best game I have ever played, GTA 5, Witcher 3, Horizon Zero Dawn are amazing but take less time to beat.

  • ketsu wo taberu

    dragon's dogma deserves to be in the top 5

  • Battle Boy

    the horizon and the zelda are the best in the list

    Breath of the wild is my favourite game I've ever played. The witcher is probably better but I've never played it so botw is top for me.

  • Xeoron

    Witcher should have got the first place. Best game ever made.

  • TheLatiosnlatias02

    Assassins' Creed 3 is my favourite while Kingdom of Amalur Reckoning is underrated.

  • karl faar

    Just finished Zelda it is great open world game and love the game design, overall look and gameplay but it should't be before Hz dawn and Witcher 3 i think you are being bs this game has many good things in it but also plenty of flaws which makes it for me 3 best.

  • Deleted Meep

    The Witness looks so beautiful and endearing... I NEED IT

  • Kamel Kadri

    I would Add Black Desert for the following reasons:1) Huge open world (no loading in between2) Several countries each with it's own capital city and villages3) You can enter most buildings4) Huge varietey in landscape (Desert, woods, islands, ocean, underwater ruins, lakes, mountains...etc)5) great graphics, day/night, dynamic weather, seasons 6) you can buy houses and decorate (and have your own maid)7) great combat8) it's an MMO so you won't be alone (double edge sword though)9) amazing character creation you can create yourself or your dream girl 10) several things to do (fishing, cooking, exploring, trading, mining, in game photography, role play......etc)
