Hey guys,

 

I've recently got back into gaming after about 10 years off. Racing games have always been my preference, however I recently downloaded and binged on Just Cause 3 and loved it.

 

Now I'm keen to get stuck into another "open world" games, I guess you could call them? One where I don't necessary have to do Task A, Task B, then Task C...but roam about and explore etc

 

I'm on a PS4 and would rather single player games (simply because I've never tried online games on a console....maybe I should undecided ).

 

Any suggestions would be appreciated! In the meantime, I'm cracking into Trackmania.

 

Cheers!

Hey there @McMatt!

 

 

 

I can recommend the Far Cry series from 3 onward. I'm currently enjoying FC5. GTA Online is also another good one, although you'll spend a fair amount of time grinding. 

 

Then you've got Rust. It's online only, and it's more of a survival game than anything. I quite enjoy it. You also have ATS and ETS2. They're relaxing and although you've got a task to do it is very open-world. Not sure if they're on console or not though

What is FC5 like?

 

I've played FC3 & 4, and 1 thing that was annoying in FC4 was the packs of wild dogs that would attack, and the eagles. Do you get the same animal attacks in FC5?

Witcher 3. Probably the greatest game you'll ever play.

Cheers guys. Haven't heard of GTA 5 stunt series. Will look it up, I loved the earlier GTA games.

 

Far Cry has been in my cart multiple times but I've never pulled the trigger. It's probably time I did.

 

Never heard of some of the others suggestions, but will be checking them out tonight laughing

Just Cause 3 is one of my favourite games! SO much run just using the grapple hook with wingsuit and parachute to traverse and blowing stuff up. Tethering cows to gas bottles and watching them rocket into the air.....hilarious fun :-).

 

As mentioned above, The Witcher 3 is one of the best examples you could find. Some areas are a lot tougher than others so in this way, the game encourages you gently towards progressing in the direction it prefers you go. Get the GotY edition for the excellent expansions and it's easily a 100hr plus game.

 

Shadow of War is awesome as well, Fallout 4, Horizon Zero Dawn, Assassins Creed: Origins (a lot more open world than previous versions), Mad Max if you like cars, open world and blowing up crap, the Saints Row series for OTT fun and more. Horizon Zero Dawn would be my pick from that list.

Yakuza 0 kind of fits that bill?

Rust! I've watched a good number of hilarious videos from Rust on Youtube, not sure why I didn't think of it. Thanks for the reminder laughing

Red Dead Redemption 2 will be out later this year - made by Rockstar Games who are responsible for the GTA series. Should be an absolute cracker - the first one came out about five years ago and was brilliant.
Fits your requirements for single player and PS4.

Edit: Wrong - eight years ago. Releasing 26 Oct 18.
