You know the ones that have a huge map that you can explore whatever and whenever you want, do missions at your own pace and give a immense freedom to the player.

My favorite ones are:

Assassin's Creed

Ah fun times.

The Elder Scrolls is not a game, it's a game series. Not all of them are open-world sandbox games, either, so you need to be more specific.

I had to do double take on what I just read.

When did I say Elder Scrolls? I need to be more specific? I CLEARLY typed Skyrim. What the f*ck? How do you mix that up, and/or get more specific then typing in Skyrim?

"Elder scrolls is not a game, it's a game series" - well thanks Sherlock for the obvious clarification, even though I never typed that or even suggested it....

How do you read "Skyrim" as "Elder Scrolls"? I just lost IQ reading what you wrote.

Whoa, calm down. The middle paragraph of my post was directed at the OP, not you. I just suck with the message formatting on this site. Here, I'll even edit my original post for you, so you don't have to be mad anymore.

But seriously, Pokemon isn't technically an open-world sandbox game.

And yes Pokemon isn't

@dragonborn_ct: The Elder Scrolls is not a game, it's a game series. Not all of them are open-world sandbox games, either, so you need to be more specific.

And my answer is Morrowind, no contest whatsoever.

On the contrary. You could have meant Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel, Arena and Red Dead Redemption. That would have been a very different list indeed.

Obviously you've never played Arena. It's very different from Skyrim/Morrowind.

@squares:

Not going to keep quoting or the boxes get obnoxiously big. Most people aren't hugely familiar with Fallout before 3, or Elder Scrolls before Morrowind. I didn't assume there needed to be any greater listing beyond that. But it's been clarified now, so good day.
