That’s why rather than mimicking what GTA has done, Just Cause chose to focus on borrowing the basics of the open-world genre and building from that with a lot more creativity. The result is a combination of an open-world game and the sensibilities of a fiction-action movie.

Just Cause 4 encourages players to have their way and rewards them for the chaos. It features the freedom of traversal, the destructible environment, and the vast open-world that altogether create the maelstrom of madness.

2. Mafia 3

This title marked a big step-up for the entire franchise regarding size, scale, and ambition. So far, Mafia 3 has been pretty much linear affairs with an open-world element.

However, Mafia 3 is more like a traditional open-world game, featuring New Bordeaux available to roam. It’s likely closer to a Punisher title that gamers could ask for with players gaining control of a Vietnam veteran and beginning to fight against the mob.

The game delivers cinematics and cutscenes that are done very well, making it outstanding from competitors.
