Batman: Arkham City.
Easily one of the best games I've played.

1. GTA San Andreas
2. Minecraft (ITS NOT SAD!!!! lol)
3. Crackdown (2nd one was alirght but a little dissapointing)
4. Saints Row 2
5. Saints Row: The Third

Dead Island is a decent sandbox for zombie fans. Would love someone to make a better one though, like a GTA style zombie game.

I'm not sure if I would class Terraria as a sanbox game but it's a good fun 2d verison of Minecraft. (played it for hours)

Borderland is good as well, but I based my top 5 on game time. it would be close to Saints Row: The Third though.

Edit: Top 5 6? In no particular order:

Skyrim
Fallout 3
Destroy All Humans
Minecraft
GTA San Andreas
MX Unleashed

I'm looking forward to GTA V slightly, but if it has a lot to make up after the disappointment that was IV. Sure, it got good reviews (probably reviewer pay-offs), but it just wasn't that good compared to the previous installments.

Do you mean GTA IV looked good but it was all city?

I missed San Andreas for its country towns, villages, deserts, mountains, aeroplanes, etc.

Another Minecraft saddo just like me lol

GTA IV was so small, hardly any helicopter and no planes. Compared to Saints Row 2 and The Third it was pretty bad. The misisons where good though, but as a sandbox after they where done, it wasn't up to much in my opinion.

I mean the lack of diversity as far as scenery and vehicles. GTA San Andreas had hovercraft, bicycles, atvs, and even tractors. The lack of good cheats, too. I couldn't have been the only one who missed flying cars.

Flying cars cheat + Boat cars cheat = So much fun. :tu:

What about Far Cry 3? The difference between its gameplay and the gameplay of the first two installments are like night and day.

Maybe because FC3 is relatively fresh but IMO Skyrim has nothing, absolutely nothing on FC3!

I beat Skyrim twice and quickly grew bored with it afterwards that I traded it away.

I beat Borderlands twice and it was okay. I am currently working on the sequel which is an improvement in every regard. The Borderlands games have a charm all their own though not my favorite sandbox game I find that I put alot of hours into them until I am exhaustedly near burnout (and desire to trade them away), put it down for a couple hours before I must absolutely get back into it for several more hours. I am not sure Borderlands is really a sandbox game as the areas actually are limited with limited exploration. When you get right down to it, Skyrim is much the same though I believe the areas are larger in the latter. Anyways back to Borderlands as one reviewer described it, it is quite frankly "gun porn" as one of the main themes to progress further into the game consists of buying and selling guns for bigger and better and badder guns.

"I charge thee in the sight of God, who giveth life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed the good confession; that thou keep the commandment, without spot, without reproach, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: which in its own times he shall show, WHO IS THE BLESSED AND ONLY POTENTE, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS; who only hath immortality, dwelling in light unapproachable; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and power eternal. Amen" (I Tim 6:13-16).
