Red Dead Redemption 2 is easily the most polished game out of the bunch with a beautifully rich open world, tons of content, and compelling characters that drive a story you won't soon forget. The time of cowboys and outlaws may be coming to an end, but you'll put up a hell of a fight to continue your way of life. It's easily one of the best games, period.

A western may not be appealing to you, though. If that's the case, take on a fantasy game like The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. There is so much to do and see in its world that it can be a little overwhelming, but it's well worth the time spent it'll take you to do so. Get ready to explore new worlds and try one of these awesome open-world games.
