I don't really care about map size as much as how well they detail it. Dying Light is still one of the best *filled* open maps I've played.

Dying Light didn't seem all that big but seeing how much stuff you could go into or climb or explore and by the time you were kinda tired of one map, you got a new one. 3rd map was cool, but small. Can't wait for the new expansion... the new dune buggy map is supposed to be bigger than the first 3 combined.
Mad Max was fairly good but that map was practically empty. They did a fairly good job creating the map though. Nice detail, but vast nothingness.
GTAV map looked pretty and realistic but was mostly empty.
FC3 could have been great. I could never fix save issues so I just gave up.
Arkham Knight is really cool but it really feels like a cramped comic book video game map.
W3 wasn't my thing so I haven't really played it. Phantom Pain... in catalog haven't started it yet.
