When we think about those really impressive open worlds that have wowed us over the years, we often retreat to the past. Daggerfall, San Andreas, GTA3 etc. All worlds that were large enough to get totally lost in, but this was some time ago.

1. Red Dead Redemption
I'm pretty sure the actual square mileage of Red Dead Redemption's map doesn't quite match up to other famous games in the open world genre, but the sense of wandering around RDR's interpretation of the old west is tough to top. Maybe it's the open ended wilderness that makes the world feel so huge, or maybe it's the sheer amount of flora, fauna and wildlife to interact with. Either way, RDR's scale is definitely on the right side of epic.
