    Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    Garrys mod. Best sandbox ever.  o.o

    Aside from that theres the usual minecraft, terraria, skyrim trio.  Soon theres going to be cube world but Im not sure...that might be linear but I really didnt check on it much at all.  Looked nice though!

    Red dead redemption is good too

    EvE online. It's also the only one that has a decent population. Either that or Ultima Online if you don't mind playing a game with outdated graphics.

    EVE, no contest.

    If you don't care for EVE (and many don't, definitely caters to a niche market) your options are definitely limited at the present time.

    Some folks would tell you to give Mortal Online or Darkfall a go, (or heck even Xyson) but they cater to even smaller niches, and suffer from severe quality control and/or completion issues.

    Eve Online hands down

    Eve Online

    ...is the one-eyed man in the land of blind. Sadly, being "the best sandbox" is hardly a merit since the competition is laughable at best.

    I think Darkfall is the best, personally. If EvE had land based play, then I would choose it.

  • teakboisteakbois Parlin, NJPosts: 2,154Member

    Ryzom is probably the best land-based sandbox.  Thats not saying much though

  • QuizzicalQuizzical Posts: 14,765Member Uncommon

    The best sandbox out now is Uncharted Waters Online.  It's a Japanese game, which is Asian only in the sense that the Mario and Zelda games are.  When people here say "Asian", they usually mean "Korean" or "Chinese".

    I guess it's not a 100% pure sandbox, but no game is a 100% pure sandbox, or for that matter, a 100% pure theme park.

    another recomendation, i think i shuld give it a try.

    how is the cash shop though?  would i have to spend a fortune to be competative at PVP or could i get away with putting away a "sub fee" to one side and using that to buy stuff?

    Eve, Darkfall. Your only real choices at the moment.

    I thought Skyrim was a single player RPG?

    Where's the any key?

  • RaysheRayshe London, ONPosts: 1,284Member

    I have played alot of sandboxes however i always fall back on Face Of Mankind. the game has its own senate to discuss and change laws that the Devs actually code into the game if they are around for long enough.

    Because i can.

    Eve is the best when it comes to Sci-fi.  UO or Asheron's call are probably the best when it comes to fantasy if you can stand the dated graphics.

    Uncharted Waters is good, but the cash shop can drain your funds fast if you get too involved in it.

    Darkfall has a major problems, no skill cap, makes the gap between veteran and young players way to huge.  The developers refuse too address this issue, hence it is a recommended avoid. 

    Mortal online is just a bug fest at this time.

    Skyrim is a single player rpg that is NOT in any way a sandbox.

    EvE?  EvE??  What are you all talking about?  He said "best" not "biggest". 

    Anyway, there really are no good sandbox MMOs out right now.  I don't know if you wanted to include single player games or not.

    One to look out for though is ArcheAge.  I think that one will turn the whole "Sandbox MMO" genre around.  Yes it's being made in Asia, but it's not really Asian themed and it doesn't seem to give off any of those Asian F2P vibes.

  • SagasaintSagasaint Miami, FLPosts: 460Member

    DarkFall by far

     

    EvE would top it if only had a, you know, real combat system.

    as it is now I would rather watch a 6 hour special of "the exciting world of watching grass grow" than playing EvE.

     

     

    EvE is one of those games that you love reading people's posts about awesome things happening there, but when you actually play it you suddenly feel the urge to do something more thrilling and dynamic...like doing the laundry.

    I'd recommend either Ryzom, Xsyon or Haven&Hearth if you want to have a character instead of a spaceship.
