    "The Witcher is an older release. It is largely player-directed and does provide freedom within the story. It is set in a fantasy universe. You play as Geralt of Rivia, a monster hunter tasked with finding a child from an ancient prophecy. "

    "Interesting story line alongside open world RPG makes Fallout 4 a continuing treasure trove of content. Just would be wary if you are a younger gamer due to the mature content of the game."

    "Dark Souls III matches it's name perfectly, its dark. I wanted a game that had an entertaining open world for my computer, and Dark Souls III fit the bill. The game has exciting enemies to battle and excellent graphics. The game itself is very challenging, however not impossible. The game is just beautiful. "

    "A great sequel to an amazing series. The combat in this one is far better than witcher 1. The story line lacked a bit, but the amazing narration made up for it."

    "There are a lot of RPG games for the PC out there but not many are open world. Vampire the Masquerade lets you roam anywhere as a young vampire. The play is fun, graphics are good and its neat to be able to openly explore a gaming environment."

    Slime Rancher
    Slime Rancher is a cute sandbox about raising, well, slimes

    "Slime Rancher was an interesting RPG. I would not buy it, but I would not mind trying it out again for free. Essentially, all you are doing is raising slimes which can get boring and rerepetitious, but it does help with relaxing since it's not too hard. Overall, it's fine, but not great."

    "I wouldn't exactly call Dark Souls 2 open world. It is but isn't. It would have been nice to see a list of games instead of just having one presented. Not satisfied with this solution."

    "I was stranded on a lush tropical island inhabited by mammoth dinosaurs. To survive, I scavenged resources to make tools and built a home to protect me. I collected seeds to plant and fertilized them with dinosaur excrement. Then I made weapons to hunt the prehistoric beasts for their hides and meat. The dinosaurs are dangerous but it is the other humans that will kill you without even the slightest provocation."

    "I have played this game since it has came out. I have put in over fifty hours into this game. I can say this is one of the best games I have ever played. It is open world but I the map isn't as big as other open world games, but that's not really an issue as it helps you to complete more of the story and to spend time leveling up the character you control. I love how the game instantly switches game style in real time making the game more action orientated than just a traditional RPG. The story is amazing and the boss fights are really though. I would recommend this game to those looking for an action RPG a genera that sadly needs more games."
