Sandbox Games - Ended By Boredom? 2015-11-13 04:04:22
It is a phrase we've all heard and one popularized with the release of Grand Theft Auto III. We can debate on who did what and at what point (hello Shenmue and Chrono Trigger), but Grand Theft Auto III made this more mainstream.
Then we have The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. A lot of you know these games and have played them extensively. Then you also have Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas. Both of these were played extensively as well. I made a Top 10 Favorite Video Games list (which needs to be updated by the way) and I saw these games be put on a lot of people's lists.
With Fallout 4 being released and the hype train going at full-steam I have to ask this question. How many people here pick these games up afterwards and truly replay them?
My brother tends to attack me for not playing a lot of modern games saying I need to play Skyrim and Fallout, due to their complex stories, characters, and landscapes. I've watched my brother and my friends play these games and I find nothing appealing about them, so I haven't really played them and don't really feel the urge to pick them up. Granted I love Grand Theft Auto, but not The Elder Scrolls or Fallout series.
A lot of people (which include a number of Newgrounds members) seem to love these games and I just don't get why. Because I tend to see a lot of hype behind these games and people who have played them go on about the endless possibilities. How many of you tend to pick it back up again and replay them? If not then why?
1. Have you played any games from The Elder Scrolls/Fallout series? If so what is appealing about them to you? If not then why?
2. If you have played games from The Elder Scrolls/Fallout series how many times have you decided to replay or revisit them?
3. Have you gotten Fallout 4? If not then why?
4. What is your favorite sandbox game of all time and why?
