  5. George Washington on November 16, 2021 at 11:48 am

    It kinds seemed like you didn’t want to walk about forza also they should make a president simulator

  6. Razor Zod23 on November 16, 2021 at 11:52 am

    gameranx still’s on …. whenever new game’s launched gameranx turn’s ON……😉😉

  7. PrototypeB3 on November 16, 2021 at 11:52 am

    GTA Definitive Edition at 8?! Really?! It’s trash

  8. VentilatorGaming on November 16, 2021 at 11:54 am

    I wonder why one of the worst remasters ever is on a top 10 video…GTA Trilogy.
    Anyways. My favourites here is Riders Republic and Forza Horizon 5. Probably Far Cry 6 too which i haven’t played yet.

  9. x487strfry on November 16, 2021 at 11:55 am

    I’m sad you put GTA Trilogy Definitive Edition on this list. How is it possible to trust your opinion on games now. How overly optimistic are you about other games? How can we know when you say a game is good that it’s actually good?

    Do you even know what the original trilogy was and understand why it is legendary? Aside from the bugs and performance issues, the soul and individual vibe of the games is gone. The attention to detail and love that existing in the creation of the original was nowhere to be seen with the remaster. The "Definitive" remasters are to the original trilogy as post allegation Bill Cosby is to the child hero Cosby.

    How is GTA on this list WTF?! Have we had so few Open-World games that this disaster of a release is in the top 10? How the fuck is it better than Valheim???!?

  11. Shad0wchasers1 on November 16, 2021 at 11:56 am

    You’re seriously putting GTA DE on this list? How much are they paying you?

  12. Scott E on November 16, 2021 at 12:00 pm

    Disagree with a few things.
    Riders Republic is just Steep with the snow turned off.
    The Ascent way was should have been way lower on list and is a B+ game that would have been an A+ game in 2007.

  13. Samuel Einheri on November 16, 2021 at 12:00 pm

    I think "The Ascent" is a great game but it has some UX issues:
    – The mini-map is next to unreadable, I have no idea where everything is & when I think I am at an objective, the objective is above me
    – The pickups (mainly tactical & abilities that are "activate-able" (red squares)) doesn’t match at all, if you want to recharge your tactical quicker you would think you would need to pick up blue "pickups"? NOOO those recharges your "activate-able" pickups (the red square ones) & if you want to recharge your tactical quicker, you need to pickup yellow pickups instead

    It’s a good game but the UI layout that currently exist, seems to better match a FPS game but even then everything is pretty damn small, making it hard to read

  14. Sam Prowse on November 16, 2021 at 12:01 pm

    Feels weird to have Biomutant on here even as a bonus… and It makes me think of my favourite Gandhi quote "Biomutant was f***ing sh*thouse" – Gandhi

  15. FinalFanVII on November 16, 2021 at 12:04 pm

    Forza is the only redeeming factor for the XBOX SERIES X.

  16. Joeri Marcelis on November 16, 2021 at 12:06 pm

    a game with 0.4 metascore is in the top 10 Open World of 2021, because the originals were great 20 years ago.

  17. Andypols!! !! on November 16, 2021 at 12:07 pm

    Is Scarlett nexus like free roam open world? Or is it divided into sections? If so, is it like 2 or 3 mains sections with other locations within them? Or does it have like 8 different locations you have to fast travel to in order or access them? And are they accessible just once through the main story?

  18. Freddie Plaza on November 16, 2021 at 12:08 pm

    Thank you very much for not using the term "anime game" to describe Scarlett Nexus. That can describe such a wide genre of games in today’s market, that it feels really ignorant when western-oriented game reviewers use the term like some kind of disclaimer that average people aren’t more open-minded to watch/play anime in 2021 as long as it’s actually well made

    Scarlett Nexus has really great combat and a really solid story compare to any game, no disclaimer is needed

  19. Avellar3000 on November 16, 2021 at 12:08 pm

    Rise is a cut down version of Monster Hunter. It speeds up the combat like Generations did but looses the difficulty and the core lore loop of the older games. It suffers from having older monster moves instead of the fluid World monster attacks and because the wire bug and the skills make the hunter move faster, the monsters aren’t scaled up to the pace and simply cannot keep up. Making the hunts boring and bland unless you’re fighting a few specially made for just Rise. It’s a functional MH game but it doesn’t really add anything to the series that is impressive.

  20. Eleos Iluvatar on November 16, 2021 at 12:09 pm

    You don’t have to say "It isn’t perfect" anymore. We get it.

  21. TabsAnDabs on November 16, 2021 at 12:12 pm

    Gas station sim 💀 "That’ll do!" that game was a good time

  22. Kitta on November 16, 2021 at 12:13 pm

    I legit find it insulting that you’ve put Valheim below the GTA remaster and I say that as someone who spent hundreds of hours in Vice City when I was a kid. This trilogy remaster is ugly and awful. This has to be the worst take I’ve ever seen on you guys channel 😂 you really did Valheim dirty. Not only does it deserve a spot way above but it was made by such a small team – that should’ve been part of the speech on it.

  23. MacDaddySnuggles on November 16, 2021 at 12:13 pm

    Grand theft auto remake is pretty bad dudes

  24. Ridwan Mohamed on November 16, 2021 at 12:14 pm

    I was expecting to see Ghost of Tsushima somewhere on the list 🤷🏾‍♂️

  25. Sir Shlade on November 16, 2021 at 12:14 pm

    Bruh I can’t believe that little 2D lookin game beat out Far Cry 6 🤦🏽‍♂️

  26. Zombie792x57 on November 16, 2021 at 12:15 pm

    far cry 6 sucked, its a massive disappointment

  27. Strolific on November 16, 2021 at 12:17 pm

    I’ve never played a Monster Hunter game, is it worth getting into?

  28. Mister Sir on November 16, 2021 at 12:17 pm

    GTA’s>VAL… c’mon.

  29. Thirdy Del Mundo on November 16, 2021 at 12:17 pm

    Scarlet Nexus is not the best game but for my first anime game, I think it’s pretty good. If ever, Tales of Arise needs to be in the place of Scarlet Nexus. The story is way better and the music is really good.

  30. Dan Anthony on November 16, 2021 at 12:19 pm

    If you don’t like subtitled movies don’t play scarlet nexus . Awesome combat but not worth the useless ton of garbage they cram into your brain to get anywhere.

  31. Bartosz Skorupa on November 16, 2021 at 12:19 pm

    Shit video if Farcry 6 is on it.

  32. Randy Verschueren on November 16, 2021 at 12:21 pm

    The wording for Forza was super weird :p it was impressive that there was no snow ? :p whut ? …. i loved Bio Mutant

  33. MegaSabl on November 16, 2021 at 12:26 pm

    Title says best Open World Games, barely talks about Open World in those games. Good job man.

  34. Bozhidar Valchev on November 16, 2021 at 12:26 pm

    In subnautica below zero, I believe you are on the same planet?

  35. Bmeister on November 16, 2021 at 12:27 pm

    Lol gta trilogy hows that rockstar check gameranx🙄 I like you guys but sometimes you have brain farts

  36. Diogenes on November 16, 2021 at 12:27 pm

    what is that sound in the background?

  37. Ben Fubbs on November 16, 2021 at 12:28 pm

    How can you give your recommendation for the GTA Trilogy given how downgraded it is over the original and the myriad of problems it has, let alone the anti-consumer decisions the publisher has made alongside this release (de-listing the original, taking down graphics mods for the originals through threats of legal action etc)? leave shilling for publishers to the IGNs and Kotakus maybe?

  38. Ira Perry-Taft on November 16, 2021 at 12:30 pm

    Where’s the T in forza?

  39. Tom Gold on November 16, 2021 at 12:30 pm

    I like falcon, he has a nice voice

  40. Immortal Babylon on November 16, 2021 at 12:32 pm

    You got a list just for the Switch?

  43. Neon Thought on November 16, 2021 at 12:34 pm

    Fence sitting much? The GTA Trilogy DE is garbage and The Ascent is definitely better than Cyberpunk 2077.

  44. Ander Olivera on November 16, 2021 at 12:35 pm

    maybe stop making games before try them out? yes the worlds of vice city and san andreas are awesome BUT NOT IN THIS NEW REMASTERED VERSION THAT GSG made…..its fucking sad what they did to those games….

  45. Luigi Cecere on November 16, 2021 at 12:35 pm

    GTA De top game yeah ? That’s a good joke

  46. Keahi Duarte on November 16, 2021 at 12:38 pm

    Ok I lost all hope for gameranx when they push far cry 6 obviously their being paid off by Ubisoft…. The game is a goofy mess

  47. DoogelCraft on November 16, 2021 at 12:38 pm

    Road 96 istn´t getting enough love… amazing game

  48. Lostania0 livres audio on November 16, 2021 at 12:39 pm
