I’ll say this right out – I LOVE sandbox games. Give me a wide open world where I can do anything, and I will happily wander off and do everything I can. I have no interest in following storylines, almost no interest in quests; instead I want to explore, see what’s there, what I can do, meet the people around me, and play in the sand. I’m no master sculptor, as it were, I’ll never build a grand castle. I’ll never be the leader gathering together a large army of people and taking kingdoms, but I’ll happily build my modest mudballs and call them home. I’d rather kill a thousand monsters and explore a thousand different methods of killing them than read a quest panel or hear a cutsene and wander off to kill ten monsters for the pleasure of another quest box or cutscene.
