Hello there!

I was just wondering how the community feels about this game type so I created this simple optional poll for people to vote on. I for one like sandbox games quite a fair bit because of the replay value and freedom it offers to me and I was wondering how everybody else feels about them. Feel free to vote!

I do enjoy a good sandbox game from time to time. Any ones you could recommend?

I dig sandbox games quite a bit. I agree that the main drive is replay value.

You can have too much of a good thing though, and I think some games focus way too much on being a "sandbox experience," while sacrificing other aspects of the game.

Additionally, I think the sandbox "genre" has been way over-saturated, and declaring that your game is a "sandbox game" doesn't hold the same meaning and doesn't generate the amount of excitement as it once did.
