    What do you is the best pc game out there for exploration? Something with lots of good scenery and varied geography, good graphics, and an ability to interact with the environment without too much distraction. What got me thinking about this was I've been playing a lot of guild wars recently. Fun game, though I notice a lot of good scenery and don't feel like I really have the means to appreciate it. The character can't move around that quickly and you're limited to just walking around, and you'd usually have a bunch of mobs chasing you. There's an area with a great waterfall, but all you can do is just walk past it on a bridge, you can't get any closer and explore it.

    I also have crysis and have been enjoying that. Great game, though I'm now at the level where the aliens turned off the gravity and it got annoying. Outstanding visuals, I just wish it didn't have the level system so that I could more freely explore the island.

    The best thing I can find is Oblivion, have others enjoyed this game?

    Fallout 3 or Oblivion. Although Morrowind is better.

    Two Worlds looks awesome and it's $9.99 at Gamestop. Is it good? Got a 7.3 (I believe) on IGN.

    GameStop loves to rip people off. They're charging $9.99 for the game. I think you answered your own question.

    Try the demo on XBL. It's not a horrible game.

    It's pretty good, I think. Graphics are great, a free world to be in as well for meeting those exploratory needs.

    Worth $10 no prob, but wasn't really worth $50 when it was new.

    Has a few faults, but it has a lot of interesting features that do have an effect on your world. Monsters are like in oblivion though, kinda, the stronger you get the stronger they get, and if you learn necromancy they can use it too after that point.

    Obvlion does have a beautiful world, but it's kinda small really... especially if you fast travel everywhere you need to go :o
