The Top TenXW

1Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

This is how open world games are supposed to be you create your own character you aren't given one you choose your class what you you level up and so so so much to do. - makyho

Not only is this the best open world game it is easily the best game ever made.

There's always something to do in this game

Definitely the best - XtremeNerdz12

2Red Dead Redemption

I am really upset to see this as number one. this game is fun this game is great but best open world definitely not yeah there is a lot of fun stuff to do but for the most part is just big wide open deserts with nothing in them. and I am really upset that ocarina of time is not in the top ten - makyho

This game has so much things you can do. I feel that you could never get bored with it. I find myself returning to it more often than any other game on this list.

Very fun only played it once though - winfreyb

I think it's the worst! I think its terrible! By the way this is only " my " opinion!

3Grand Theft Auto V

It Is one of the greatest games ever Grand Theft Auto five is amazing Games ever The graphics are great it's a kill you get the shoot people and it's just a great game overall

It should be number 1. It is THE BENCHMARK for all open world games that have released or are yet to. Be it the graphics or the gameplay this game excels everywhere.

Best open world game ever. And one of the best games ever.

Bigger map is fun to play

7Assassins Creed IV: Black Flag

This game completely revolutionized the AC series by adding the possibility of traveling all around the map (ground and sea) and use your own damn ship in order to conqueer the English templars forts, discover new lands, unlock side missions, harponing, make submarine requests, destroy and own enemy ships and it's cargo as well and explore the whole Caribbean sea and islands, just loved the 3 main places: Nassau, Kingston and La Habana, of course the combat engine is still brutal and marvelous, I would have really liked to count with more weapons in this one but swords and axes, like the past games: hammers, bow and arrow or knives but still, this game deserves at least top 3, AC franchise will always be the best and this game, the greatest of it. - MadisonLeeJong995

9Saints Row: The Third

Definitely the best open world game ever, it actually feels like an open world game, the gameplay and combat are fantastic, missions are fun, creative, and stand out from other games such as the second mission of the game, just amazing and customization is key in that game, the fun is just endless in SR3.

I personally believe that the saints row series is better than Grand Theft Auto and sr ranks 1st on my favorite game of all time

One of the best, if not better than Grand Theft Auto 5, but at least it should be no.2.
The game dialogs, missions, story and gameplay is awesome.
Everyone should try it.

The Contenders

11Batman: Arkham City

Arkham city is so fun to explore with subways, buildings, and the streets ruled by the most dangerous inmates and super villains. The story is great containing almost every single batman villain you know. And the dlc packs are also really good, having different story's and playable characters. A truly must own.

This is one of my favorite games! Perfect story and dlc packs, great graphics, Must have!

The Arkham series is my favorite video game series

12Sleeping Dogs

Sleeping dogs is the "DAWG" of the open world games.Best figts best graphics but driving is a serious LETDOWN. Besides it's a GREAT game,for sure.

13Batman: Arkham Knight
14Borderlands 2V1 Comment
15L.A. Noire

This game evolved graphics and emersions by having realistic facial movements and storyline as well as cars and weapons.

16Assassin's Creed
17Fallout 4

This game is not higher on the list because it is so new. But it is stupid that PS4 has not had mods yet. But at the time it came out the sales were record breaking.

18Mafia II
19Minecraft

This game is awesome, you can do what ever you want. This game is so fun and entertaining. And it's open world. - floridiancat

Oh my gravey! Minecraft is the absolute bomb!, I love the sky rim and the festive and the plastic and the cartoon and all of the other texture packs! The only thing is that they need to ad command blocks!...! ! They are adding that already?!

This NEEDS to be higher. Not top 5 but definitely top 10

This is the number 1 game of all time
