So I see this word flying around the forums a lot, but I'm getting confused what sandbox actually is. I tried to find it here on forums and I found no such thread. I tried to find it on wiki and it says: Sandbox game = open world:
Which is very vague and I think you could justify almost every other game to be "sandbox".
Trying to search on internet is futile as sandbox is term used in computer security and developement...
Can we come to some conclusion what features sandbox game must have and what must not have?
I'll be updating this post with replies in this thread.
