Many of us were truly sold on the open world genre by Grand Theft Auto 3 but, even though it was the first open world experience many of us truly enjoyed on consoles, there have been a lot of worthy successors to the open world mantle since then. Even within the past few years alone, there have been some true classics. Here are ten such awesome open world games from 2010 to the present day.
1. Just Cause 2
In comparison to some of the more serious entries later on this list, Just Cause 2 offers a needed opening away from all things moody and pensive. Granting players the awesome combo of parachute and grappling hook, Just Cause 2 is all about the aerial stunts, with many sections of the game requiring you to leap between vehicles, rather than just stealing your cars outright. Considering how many of the missions required just blowing loads of stuff up, Just Cause 2 also offers a surprisingly rich and enjoyable open world to explore when you're not rampantly destroying it.
