Open-world games have only grown more popular with time, with many series even shifting away from linear design to give players more freedom and bigger areas to explore. Not every open-world game is created equal, however, with classics such as Grand Theft Auto 5 and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild standing out against alternatives that rely too much on “stuff to do” and ever-bigger worlds than making the open world suit the experience. That can make it difficult to find the best open-world games, especially on newer consoles that have so many to choose from. We rounded up some of the very best ones, accounting for the world itself being a big reason for their inclusion–games with tremendous stories that happen to have open worlds, such as Nier: Automata, were left off for this reason. We’ve also geared this mostly toward newer games that are easily accessible today. 

For more games to check out on the current consoles, check out the best PS5 games, best PS4 games, best Xbox Series X|S games, best Xbox One games, and the best Nintendo Switch games. You can also check out the best PC games if you want to game with a mouse and keyboard.

  1. Also GS: red dead redemption 2 is frustrating, 9/10.

  2. Arkham knight should replace Arkham city in this list

  3. METAL gear solid 5 is really good game,but is it really open world? I mean the place feel like empty space with a few enemy base ,you cant do any activity beside kill or rescue mission ,i dont think thats open world to me

  4. Star Wars: The Old Republic – the most expensive game ever made. Why no SWTOR love?

  5. You forgot Kingdom Come Deliverance and Fallout New Vegas.

    Red Dead Redemption 2
    Skyrim
    Witcher 3
    Breath of the Wild

    Those 4 open world games were awesome i had a lot of enjoyment with them.

    Red Dead Redemption 2 for realism and alive open world.
    Skyrim for freedom of gameplay and sandbox gaming.
    Witcher 3 for worldbuilding and quests and story/characters
    Breath of the Wild for exploration and physics

    4 Open world games that defined a generation.

  6. zelda all day ,, until the new open world pokemon game comes out in a few months ,,Which is modeled after Zelda

  7. Xenoblade Chronicles X is missing in this

  8. In my opinion, the fact that Kingdom Come: Deliverance isn't on this list is an insult. Genuinely probably the best game I have ever played, ridiculously immersive and fun

  9. "There aren't that many new releases out right now"

    ????

  10. I’d throw in Subnautica. Might not be as popular as a game like Death Stranding but whereas most of the games on this list are very like one another, Subnautica is completely distinct for many reasons

  11. Death Stranding…come on. I guess you need one more…I get it. 😉

  12. Man, I'm glad Sunset Overdrive's getting recognition. The game's criminally underrated.

  13. Elex, is so much more fun to explore than half the games on this list. And I’ve played them all. If you you see a mountain and fly to the top theirs loot there. Is there’s something that seems worth checking out there’s loot there. You’re rewarded for exploring. That’s good open world design.

  14. A few of my favorites that didn't make the list:
    Fallout 4
    Dragon Age Inquisition
    Cyberpunk 2077
    Ghost Recon: Wildlands
    Mass Effect 3 (if it counts)

  15. Dragon age origins
    Dragon age Inquisition
    The Witcher 2
    The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt
