7 Best Selling Open World Video Games Of This Generation

Open World Videos are getting bigger and better each and every year. The Technology used to develop these types of games have come a long way. We can do anything, We can go anywhere and those are the things that every player look forward to in an open world game. They cost a fortune to make but if they are made good enough they can make a huge amount of money. Today We are counting down the 7 Best selling games of this generation.



Sales – 6 million units

While it occasionally buckles under its own ambition and the game falters somewhat as the plot ramps up, overall Final Fantasy XV is a beautiful, exciting game that I dearly loved. It may not be the best game I’ve played this year, but it is almost certainly my favorite, and Square Enix has built an incredible, extremely unique open-world. – High-Def Digest

There is so much good here, so much heart – especially in the relationships between Noctis and his sworn brothers. It just comes with some changes and compromises that were, at times, difficult for this long-time Final Fantasy fan to come to grips with. – IGN


Far_Cry_4_Pagan_Min.pngSales – 7 million copies

Far Cry 4 truly shines in the almost bacchanalian sense of freedom it bestows on the player as they traverse through its environment. – Guardian

Far Cry 4 doesn’t have the element of surprise afforded its praised predecessor but does more than enough to live outside its shadow, and thus stands alone as a great game in its own right. – Gameplanet

Graphically appealing, Far Cry 4 reincarnates the gameplay of its marine old-gen form into the mystical and evocative Himalayan setting. The transmigration of Far Cry’s soul into a new (re)generation body is successfully complete: the Nirvana of open world FPS is a step nearer. – IGN Italia



Sales – 10 million copies

Watch_Dogs combines an astonishingly detailed world, a gripping storyline, creative game mechanics, a myriad of missions and activities, and improvisational tactical sandbox gameplay to create a truly next-generation open world game. Phenomenal. No other word for it. – USgamer

It’s not often a new game franchise comes into the world so fully realized and without major shortcomings, which is why this is such an impressive achievement. Not only is it more polished, expansive, alive and fun to play than many predecessors in its genre, it’s also the best example yet of next-generation gameplay. – The Globe and Mail (Toronto)



Sales – 12 million units

The current paragon of role-playing titles and open worlds, The Witcher: Wild Hunt is a game for the ages; a rich and immersive world full of significant decisions and a feeling of intelligent and epic fantasy. Peerless. – LevelUp

This is the new standard for open world role-playing games. There is no such thing as a perfect game, but The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt come as close to perfect as any RPG to date. – DarkStation



Sales – 12 million copies

The world, exploration, crafting, atmosphere, and story of Fallout 4 are all key parts of this hugely successful sandbox role-playing game. Great new reasons to obsessively gather and hoard relics of happier times, strong companions, and sympathetic villains driving tough decisions make it an adventure I’ll definitely replay and revisit – IGN

Unsurprisingly, Fallout 4 is closer to Fallout 3 than it is to the former episodes. And it comes with all the qualities and problems we already know. But Fallout 4 belongs to this hypnotizing kind of games that you should not miss if you love Western RPGs. – JeuxActu



Sales – 80 Million Units

Sure, the Rockstar Social Club is an annoying hoop to jump through, and hardware fragmentation poses problems for some. But for those with the hardware to run it, GTA V serves as a testament to the PC platform’s superiority, and a reminder that good things come to those that wait. – AusGamers

After the long wait, PC-gamers get what they have been hoping for. We cannot deny it; the PC is the best way to experience GTA V. Rockstar optimised the game perfectly, and we are happy to start our third and forth play-throughs. – Gamer.nl



Sales – 120 million copies

Games like Skyrim or GTA love talk about open worlds, but it seems, that so far only Minecraft has truly embraced this principle. (…) This here is your story, that you simultaneously write and experience. All at your own pace. – Eurogamer Germany

Meanwhile, Minecraft, with all its flaws and quirks, has already joined Super Mario Brothers, Wolfenstein 3D, and Tetris in the pantheon of games that prototyped an entire genre. – 1UP

A sensation, and rightly so. This is a game that makes you both happy and creative – Gamereactor Sweden
