I'm tired of em. It was fun to be able to make my own fun, but now I'm back to enjoying more focussed experiences. Freedom sucks!!

I cant say that I adore them... yeah I like to create mayhem in every new GTA, but not more then a couple of hours...



I love Sandbox games and with FC 2 and GTA IV you name the worst of the sandbox games n my opinion.






I dislike this type of game as well. I like the structure of ninja gaiden 2...linear and challenging. I don't find it challenging figuring out what I have to do and where I have to go...



I'm with you Spartan... get sick of the seemingly aimless and random wandering around...

Now if I was a student with shit loads of time on my hands then maybe it would be different.......



I'm not really here!

I've never been a huge fan of them.

For a game like Oblivion it has too much freedom (mind you this game is an extreme). It gives you no motivation to finish the main quest and I still know few real people that have finished the game. I like *something* that drives me to complete the game.

For a game like GTAIV I just get bored quickly. It's fun at first but the main fun of the game comes from the sandbox part and not the actual quests. So after I've had my fun of the sandbox stuff (stealing cars, killing people, blowing stuff up, ect) and get to the main quest the game just isn't fun because the beginning quests can't be nearly as fun I had when just screwing around.



I'm fine with both. Sometimes I find it hard to endure, like Oblivion, but having the option of playing a sandbox game is nice sometimes.



      I like sandbox/open world games in theory, but I'm disappointed that buyers have spoken with their wallets that they want asinine tripe like the GTAs and Saints Rows.

      More Baldur's Gates and Fallouts, please, and fewer pimps, hos, and car jackings.



      Depends on the game, I honestly think fallout 3 wouldn't have held my attention for so long if it wasn't for the free roaming. I can understand not every game can do this. I myself noticed I prefer linear settings.

      Reviewers have no idea what they want anymore. Just give them aliens and guns and they will be happy (most of the time).

      You win, Sir.

      I'd like to both add Gothic to the mix, and to say that I stopped liking GTA after Vice City.
