    Well as for open world games I honestly enjoyed State of Decay 2.
    As for RPGs I'd have to go with FF14
     
    Game I enjoyed and still play from time to time that goes past 5 years would be LoZ: A Link To the Past.

    You really enjoyed State of Decay 2? I really tried playing it, and getting into it, even trying to play with a friend but it got super repetitive, "another settlement needs help" got tedious with resource grinding and I felt I had no direction. I understand that there are multiple campaign goals to reach and everything is separated, but felt that the missions are very distanced from one another. Also had some bugs and vehicle issues where I lost a big part of the haul when a car broke in the middle of the hoard just because it glitched.
     
    But to be honest, like the 1st one, while I enjoyed the environment and the intro I couldn't get into the open-world sandbox mode of it and was a bit disappointed that I had to juggle settlement building space. Also felt that even if well defended and placed build, the hordes just kept coming to attack it and I had to defend it.
     
    I really enjoyed New Vegas but didn't manage to finish it and abandoned it at some point.
    Skyrim is great and one of the ages.
    Witcher series as well.
    Dragon Age Series as well.
    People also praise Dragon's Dogma
    I loved Shadow of War, although it's not truly an open-world RPG.
     
    What about ELEX from the makers of Gothic? Is there any substance there
     
    Red Dead Redemption 2 I played it and finished, not 100% but I really enjoyed the level of detail and the world and characters. Especially the ending carrying on.

    I think Witcher 3 definitely needs to be on the all time list along with Skyrim and New Vegas.

    Ye Witcher 3, Red Dead Redemption 2 and most likely Skyrim will/should be on every top RPG list of the decade. This and maybe Legend of Zelda  Breath of the Wild.

    Skyrim and that whole series has such a bad Ai it totally ruins the experience.

    So many good ones!  I'd second Skyrim, Witcher 3, and Final Fantasy 14 (if that counts since its an MMO)

    Of all time? Not Skyrim, it really doesn't hold up well today. I'd say The Witcher 3 is better of the two.
    Last 5 years? Kingdom Come Deliverance. Very under rated. Had a bad launch and has sense then been patched up.

    Oh, I'll have to check out Kingdom Come Deliverance. I got it free via Epic Game Store a while back and didn't get around to installing it due to a giant backlog

    Oblivion was a great open world game. Morrowind I tried, but I just couldn't. After finishing Solstheim in Skyrim I fell in love with Tel Mythrin, Mushroom House best house. So hype for Skywind/Morrowblivion.

    Morrowind definitely changed everything for me as well. Especially first playing it after things like halo and final fantasy mostly. Still up there on my list of highest number of hours.

    None as I have too many thought of that do it well.  For the sheer exploration aspect and feeling like you can just go around and stumble into something it would be Skyrim or Oblivion.

    A HQ visuals modded Skyrim and Fallout 4 are my favorites. Just started a completely new game for Skyrim recently.

    The only open world game that wowed me when I got my hands on it was Morrowind. This was on the OG Xbox too. I think what got me the most was the amount of freedom you were allowed. Skyrim was like that too but Morrowind felt truly open-ended.

    In my opinion, the game that best uses open world mechanics and is conveyed to the player is Zelda BOTW. Red Dead Redemption simply created a wonderful and immersive world.

    I'll have to just on the Witcher 3 bandwagon.  While not perfect, I do love that game.

    For me i would say:
     
    Best of all Time is Dark Souls, if that does not count, i would say witcher 3.
    in the last 5 years skyrim was pretty nice and death stranding was cool in it´s own way.
     
    On other Systems it´s of course Zelda BotW

    Best all time was Oblivion
    Best recent would be Witcher 3 (thanks Netflix for leading me to this game)
