10 Most Impressive Open World Video Games Since 2010

10. Fallout 4


Fallout 4 has been hampered by a lot of criticism around its story, gameplay and rather iffy structure. However, there is one point that critics almost universally praised, and that is just how stunning the Commonwealth truly is.

It's a great exploration game brought down by the other RPG aspects Bethesda felt that they needed to tack on. Moving around the destroyed city of Boston or the Glowing Sea is just breathtaking, with every nook and cranny crammed with things to discover and do.

Stumbling onto random side quests and weird encounters are the game's forte. The worlds Bethesda paint are always so rich and fun and you can spend hours just trekking across the map, simply because it's so engrossing. It's what makes the typical Bethesda game so successful despite the many bugs and gameplay issues.


I like video games, writing and writing about video games. Expect sarcasm and the dry wit of a Brit. And the occasional rant of a unhappy Scot. You know... the usual.
