What's going on with open-world games?

After GTA V, have there been any good open-world or sandbox style games released on the 360?

Since the limitation of "after GTA-5" is listed the only one that really qualifies is Watch Dogs.

Before GTA-5 there's a lot of free roam games on the 360.

^The problem is that there isn't a single name, classification, or genre that includes all open-world, free-roam, sandbox, and those types of games - into one group. I haven't been in the loop for a while and I just want a large new world to goof off in.

^^Thanks. I didn't know Watch Dogs was out already. I think I'll either try Watch Dogs or Saints Row 4. Those are the only 2 open-world/sandbox style games that I haven't played yet, that I know of.

Well open world and free roam are kinda the same thing. Sandbox has more of a distinct classification but it can vary.

Some require Sandbox to be something like Minecraft, where you're dumped in the world and told to get on with it using your own imagination, crafting the world around you. Some require only that the open world be changable in some way, either by destroying stuff or building. Some don't require that so much, but want the freedom to just do whatever, like for example Just Cause 2.

I'd say JC2 was sandbox whereas Skyrim for example would be open world. It depends where the focus is, I think. If it's on just going where you like and doing whatever, however and whenever then I'd say it was a sandbox. But if the focus is on objective fulfillment, narrative, story or questing that kinda thing, I'd say it was open world.
