Vice City and Just Cause 2.June 12, 2012 at 8:23 pm #37116
One of my favorite things to do in video games is to explore – finding new areas and seeing all the details. Elder Scrolls and Minecraft lend themselves to this very well, so much so, that I tend to ignore the other aspects of these games. Just give me a sword and a cave, and I’ll be spelunking for some loot.
Yet, exploration not only applies to physical places but to game limitations as well. GTA and Mario64 fall into this category. From falling off a building on a bicycle to parkouring inside some paintings, I’m sure it wasn’t the intent of the game to be played like this, but I’m glad such programming was allowed, which makes sandbox games so awesome.June 12, 2012 at 8:30 pm #37117
Saints Row 2 or Just Cause 2June 12, 2012 at 8:33 pm #37118
Just Cause 2 – Blowing stuff up is fun. As in flying around everywhere with your grappling hook and parachute.
Mercenaries – Playground of Destruction – Blowing stuff up is fun and you get a whole military arsenal to do it with, including airstrikes. SWEET!
Red Dead Revolver Undead Nightmare – Absolutely fucking amazing. A Rockstar game with decent pacing? Unbelievable!
Saints Row 2 – Being a gangster has never been this awesome. While Saints Row 3 had some spectacular missions, Saints Row 2 offered the best overall experience. Saints Row 3 lacked longevity and it’s city felt bland and empty by comparison.June 12, 2012 at 8:36 pm #37119
Not one of my favorite genres; but I was quite fond of Red Dead Redemption as well. Other than that, nothing really stands out for me.June 12, 2012 at 8:38 pm #37120
Bone nailed it.
Red Dead Redemption.
But, purely for nostalgic reasons, I’ll also give a shout out to the Simpsons: Hit and Run. Far from the best game and I can’t say I’ve played it in years, but I have very fond memories about playing that as an 11-12 year old.June 12, 2012 at 9:24 pm #37124

Not really the best sandbox game, but a good game nonetheless. Racing (The meat of the game), light platforming (Very little in the adventure itself, but a decent amount while exploring for collectibles) and a chance to explore Springfield? Awesome.
It’s a real shame there’s not that much to find or do in the sandbox though, but still, it’s nice to do some sightseeing in Sprinfield.June 12, 2012 at 9:34 pm #37125
Red Dead Redemption. I will always love this game.June 13, 2012 at 1:40 am #37153
GTA:SA and Spider-man 2 crazy amount of playtime on both of them.
Just Cause 2,Arkham City, Assassin’s creed series.June 13, 2012 at 1:53 am #37155
Saints Row 2, Grand Theft Auto 2 and (if it even counts) Arkham City.
