There’s a lot to love about games that deliver directed, linear, scripted experiences, especially when they’re finely crafted. But there’s just something about a good sandbox that feels irreplaceable. Being left loose in a large game with a multitude of systems and play and being allowed to interact and engage with them how you want is an exhilarating feeling, one that can’t be found anywhere else. In this feature, we will talk about fifteen such games.

GRAND THEFT AUTO 5

Let’s start off with the biggest, most popular sandbox game there is, shall we? Sure, GTA 5 has a massive campaign to go through, and finely crafted missions to experience, but the real star of the show is the open world sandbox. We’ve spent countless dozens of hours wreaking havoc all around the map, messing with the NPCs, and trying out new things just for the heck of it. You can spend hours upon hours just enjoying the open world of GTA 5 without ever even touching the main story- that’s the mark of a truly great sandbox game.
