Kill Your Babies!: Destroy the Vast Open World Games!



  • Now it's time to decide which game stands as the best of the Open-World games!

    SO: As always, just in case there are new players, here are the rules:

    Rule #1: When you make a kill, give your reason why you are killing. Just taking it out isn't all that inspiring. Whether you truly dislike it, you strike out of revenge, you feel that there are other important titles that should have made it, or you have legitimate critiques, explaining your kill is necessary to validate its death. Yes, even to those of you who kill because they're good (Because that makes sense)

    Rule #2: Please keep the updated list for the benefit of other players. Cross through your kill to identify what's been chosen.

    Rule #3: You may kill another game after only four (New rule!) other people have made a kill OR if 12 hours have passed from the last overall kill (not necessarily your own). This should be plenty of time for others to get involved.

    Rule #4: If you fail to give a reason, make a 2nd kill without allowing the time to pass/proper amount of players a turn, or if there is an unforeseen issue up for potential review, your kill may not be recognized. This rule is subjective to the situation and hopefully will not be implemented.

    Rule #5: Per normal, we will have a straw poll for the final two. Please vote for the one you want to win, not lose.

    Let me know if you have any questions. Your kills are your own, so be ruthless, uncompromising, and most importantly:

    HAVE FUN!!!

  • I think this is a pretty damn good list we made. There's like at least 16 games I'd play in a heartbeat. It'll be a tough job to actually kill something off of it, but that's the spirit of this thing. So.

    I'm sorry, but you all knew this is an extremely polarizing game, and I happen to be on the negative end of the spectrum. Too weird, that's all.

    I do this for PC gamers like myself, majority of us could not enjoy this otherwise good game. This is one game I would recommend on Console. Because they can actually run it without issues, most of the time from what I've heard anyway.

    Because San Andreas is like ten thousand times better than it.

    Maybe it has good gameplay. I don't know, since I've never played any GTA game, and never will. It's a sick series made by sick people, and I mean that in the literal sense. I picked San Andreas just because psuedo-Miami is a more interesting setting. Yay, no more GTA!

    The game was pretty to look at, and I did enjoy all the characters, but the combat and open world quest structure were very lackluster.

    Never quite liked GTA much, and never liked True Crime which just seemed a copycat. Pretty much any other game on this list is better imo.

    TES just isn't my series, it seems. Couldn't even finish Skyrim, which felt like the most polished of the bunch. Morrowind has no chance with these other games around.

    I've never been attracted to the Just Cause series, it feels too chaotic, it's only a playground. Can't get invested in a game/world when it's too goofy.

    It's a grungy, bleak Elder Scrolls with guns. And an Elder Scrolls-style game isn't worth playing if there's nothing nice to look at, Magic spells are more interesting than boomsticks as well.

    Because it has one of the worst combat ever and game is very boring too

    Because though this was one of the best AC entries, it just... ended... with no explanation at all. Also I hate running to the tops of buildings to put all the collectibles on my map so I can go get them. Also, because chasing sea shanties was annoying.

    Might as well kill Oblivion, too. I've heard a phrase about TES games, that they're "big as an ocean that is two inches deep". Sounds about right.

    Far Cry 2 is better (even with the respawning enemies)
