I'm trying to think of any off the top if there is more list them and what was your favorite one? I love random chaos that was why the GTA games were some of my favorites. Instead of feeling like the world just revolved around me and what I did it was great to see peds randomly fighting each other which I only ever seen in the GTA games.

Mafia 3
GTA V
Just Cause 3
Watch Dogs 2

Im sure there's more. Are there any non shooting free roam gamed besides Skyrim?

Those are free-roam games, not sandbox games. Sandbox games are where the world starts out pretty much formless and you get tools to create your own "world".

We're talking:
Sim City
The Sims
Theme Park
Minecraft


No they definitely are sandbox games.

In a colloquial misuse of the term, sure.

If you want to be correct, they're not sandbox games.

They are.

You have every right to be wrong. If you want to be that obstinate, I'm not going to fight you on it.

How about this? Nobody is wrong. If you want to be ignorant, by all means. It's not a pissing contest. That list of games he mentioned and the games you mentioned can both be considered Sandbox games.

A little old but Saints Row 2 had the best npc`s ever. You could just be walking around, minding your own business and across the street you'd see a random fight and then the cops would show up, then someone would hit the cop with a car. The cop would start beating up that person, and then get hit by another car so more cops would show up...

Agreed 100%

From Technopedia (take that as you will):

Definition - What does Sandbox mean?

A sandbox is a style of game in which minimal character limitations are placed on the gamer, allowing the gamer to roam and change a virtual world at will. In contrast to a progression-style game, a sandbox game emphasizes roaming and allows a gamer to select tasks. Instead of featuring segmented areas or numbered levels, a sandbox game usually occurs in a “world” to which the gamer has full access from start to finish.

A sandbox game is also known as an open-world or free-roaming game.
