  1. i love how 2004 gta san Andreas game still made in top open world games of 2018. now that is what i called a masterpiece.

  2. Man , first you are too old . Gta san andreas instead of gta 5? Farcry3 instead of farcry 5 ? Next divinity doesn't deserve to be in 1st place. The top 5 should be as follows :
    1)witcher 3
    2)Assassin's creed origins
    3)gta 5
    4)farcry 5
    5)farcry 3 or 4

    This ranking is done on the basis of open world and the amount of awesomeness present in the game ,not by stupid critics and giving them cool names like playscore

  3. The most authentic open world for me is Assassins creed Origins,it’s a huge map,a chunk of country and sea and even bigger with the dlc which adds huge mountainous regions plus it looks amazing in 4k hdr and it’s a current game.The trouble with these lists on pc is that the pc scores include games going way back as they all work on pc.The console lists look more current as the consoles games only cover the last 4 or 5 years up until the console before.

  4. GTA V was The best selling created thing (including movies) ever, but nobody liked it as much to get better score. :] That's why it isn't here.

  5. i dont understand why people love divinity original sin…… i though they where highly overrated and a waste of money, its basicly xcom with a little story

  6. GTA V
    AC BF/Origins
    Far cry 3
    Skyrim
    Fallout 4
    GRW Wildlands

    All combined, I have more than 4000 hours. Lol.
