    GTA V place 1?! Open world? massively outsised maps don't make an open world, if you can only enter about 50 buildings, not even your own taxi business is accessable for the player, instead endless roads to drive into just another useless nowhere. The most dead map I ever came across. I felt way more free in GTA IV, though the map is just a fraction of GTA V, not to mention in RDR, which is also considerably smaller, ArmA II, Fallout, let alone Skyrim, which is not just larger (walk through the entire map takes longer than in GTA V), but way more vivid and alive as well, and so on and so forth. GTA V is still the most overrated game I'd ever the unpleasure to play. Stupid, repetative AI, silly hunting parts, annoying animals, but above all gazillion of locked buildings, just streets and cars. That's all there is to it. A disappointing wanna-be-all-at-once like hell, and in fact it's nothing perfect in no way of any other open-world-game.

    Now that we are about 3 years removed from this list, I think that Batman: Arkham Knight has surpassed Arkham City in the contest of better open worlds. I would contend that Wotcher 3 deserves a spot, maybe even Metal Gear Solid V or Horizon.

    Y'all have nostalgia in your lists. That's why you like GTA IV more than GTA V. GTA IV was better with crash mechanics, fighting, and a slightly better story. GTA V beats it in about every other category.

    Fallout: New Vegas in my opinion is way better than Fallout 3. It has more ways to complete a quest. More dialouge. You get to choose a faction. The worlds atmosphere is a little bit worse than Fallout 3.

    New vegas is much better than fallout 3. Both are excellent games, but New Vegas still had some of the original writers from the 90's and the plot, characters, weapons are more refined, everything is better. FO4 is also very fun but lost a lot of that soul. Way too much nonsense DLC that was just assets that already existed in game retooled for the boring base building mechanic. I would have no problem with all the base building mechanics if it didn't seem to be to the detriment of the story, factions, gameplay etc. Generic radiant "defend this settlement" and "build this whatever" were just tedious.

    Fallout is about destruction, moral ambiguity, and choices. Where the hell is the karma system? Why did they dumb down the skill system? Only base stats and perks no skills to be leveled? No lockpicking skill no small guns, big guns, energy, etc? I played it through once, enjoyed it, tried the garbage DLC and haven't touched it since. Such a shame FO4 could have been great.

    But still my point that New Vegas belongs on the list instead of FO3 stands. The DLC for New Vegas was some of the best ever made. Old World Blues with the giant brains and the bad guy that turns out to be the good guy was just top notch.
