Massive sandbox games?

#1HobsonPosted 11/19/2013 11:06:21 AM
I grew up on Simulation games especially the ones by Maxis. Years ago I was excited by Spore but of course that mostly let me down although certain aspects of it were fun for like week.

I've been mostly removed for the gaming scene for quite a few years and I'm have difficulty finding anything that is very good in this genre in recent years.

Can anyone provide some good recommendations of what to look into?

Just Cause 2 is pretty much THE Massive Sandbox game.

Assassins Creed IV Black Flag gives you a large open world with plenty to do.

X3: Albion Prelude was awesome. Haven't looked into it, but I'd be sad if Rebirth turned out badly.

Also been heavily into Mount & Blade: Warband this month.

Arma 3 is sandbox if you like military shooters (more of a sim).
