Suggestions for a Sandbox game

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I am trying to kill time till I go back to class in June, but don't know what to play. I am into any games, but at the moment, I'm thinking a sandbox game. A wouldn't mind it being an RPG-ish style game also, but that isn't necessity. Once you play GTA, you play them all, so I don't want one of those, unless it is a gta-like game with a REALLY good story line.. -.-

As you can see, my rig is pretty good, so graphics aren't a problem, matter as a fact, I would like something that would push it a little ^^ Any suggestions?

Minecraft? It's a creative sandbox.

Garrys mod.

Best (creative) sandbox ever, period.

Already kind of tired of Minecraft, and lost my brother and my world when I reformatted...

I've heard a lot of talk on Garry's mod... what exactly is it? I know it has something to do with TF...

Whatever you want it to be, that's the beauty of it.

It's very cheap on Steam, too. Get it, have a play, stick at it. You can make some wonderful things.

i would recommend JC2 but the storyline is sorta...lackluster.
but the game itself is SUPER FUN when ur INVINCIBLE (with hax). and it looks pretty good and it will look even better with ur 580 (its a WIMTBP nvidicrap game)
looks good with my 5830s, but looked even better when i had my 275s!

way better than GTA imo

Garrys mod is a sandbox that deals with the source engine. You take props and other things from different source games and make them do stuff. You can add mods that add functionality and whatnot, but if minecraft burned you out, Gmod will too.

I think Yahtzee hit the nail on the head when comparing minecraft with Gnod though. Minecraft makes you work for the stuff you want to build, Gmod just gives it to you.

Don't wanna sound like a broken record, but crysis 1 and crysis warhead are 2 brilliant games and I know they're not sandbox but its very much run a kill how you want too.

If not, farcry 2 is ment to be a good sandbox game, but I've not played it :/

Played them all. Didn't like them as much as most did. The graphics, yeah, amazing, but just didn't wow me like most said they would.
Played Farcry, not 2, but I've heard 2 isn't as good anyways.
