    8:01 Hey, I played that one! I like making my character look like a Gerudo and giving her skimpy outfits. I was actually kind of curious how well Ubisoft could handle a game like this. For what it is it’s alright. Fenyx Rising is pretty funny. There was a joke that they kind of censored due to the fact that the game is teen rated. It was the part where they mention that Uranus gets his genitals cut off. You don’t actually hear that, but they were talking about the birth of Aphrodite.

    Mad Max is awesome…..Sleeping Dogs also.

  3. straxacore on June 2, 2022 at 8:58 pm

    I love mad max, played it on launch and got my friend to play it. I tricked him into making it his first 100% completion.

  4. Desmond Heller on June 2, 2022 at 8:59 pm

    Mad Max is awesome!!!😃

  5. Hunter Funk on June 2, 2022 at 9:02 pm

    Mad Max was my favorite free ps plus game until ff7remake, it’s such a hidden gem

  6. ITzKidKoz on June 2, 2022 at 9:03 pm

    Now what I’m going to say is going to sound stupid to Mad Max fans but…. that game was way to barren for me. I know its a literal wasteland there shouldn’t be NPCs just roaming about all the time but i thinki got to the second or third area to conquer and i just fell off. I understood the game and wasn’t having a bad experience in terms of gameplay I’ll concede that attempting to get into its open world right after i finished spiderman was probably not the best in terms of timing but idk i just got bored like really bored and played spiderman again

  7. Ayushmaan Singh on June 2, 2022 at 9:05 pm

    Truthfully speaking Play Mad Max, it’s the best any game can offer between open world, survival and car chases and crash downs

  8. PandAnarky Studios on June 2, 2022 at 9:06 pm

    Mad Max was definitely fun. In no way is it perfect, but it’s different enough to keep you around for at least the story, which is pretty good

  9. Michael Bundy on June 2, 2022 at 9:06 pm

    I’m playing mad max right now, it’s absolutely phenomenal.

  10. A P on June 2, 2022 at 9:07 pm

    I really really liked Immortals Fenyx but I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone. Mad Max on the other hand, 100% recommend 😂

  11. Purple Pockets on June 2, 2022 at 9:08 pm

    I played Greedfall and it was ok. The voice acting was atrocious, but the world was really cool. The ending was a disappointment though. I’m playing Mad Max right now and I’m loving it. It is so much fun.

  12. Chris Shaw on June 2, 2022 at 9:10 pm

    I had fun playing The Saboteur

  13. DarkVadekGaming on June 2, 2022 at 9:10 pm

    Mad max was so much fun, and they made a very unforgiving world, they really sold the collapse well. I would like a second game, actually

  14. BoyProdigyX on June 2, 2022 at 9:12 pm

    I think a lot of people missed out on Watchdogs 2 because of how bad the original did. I was "forced" to try WD2 because my computer was a potato, and it was one of the few open world games that actually ran well and looked good. The story is fun, the RC car & drone were original, the skill tree satisfying. The "hacking" was mostly B.S., but in game form it made sense. The driving quests weren’t my thing, and the A.I. had the same problem every open world game does, but still, I really recommend it!

  15. John Aymar on June 2, 2022 at 9:13 pm

    Who else wants a sequel to mad Max the game !!! That game was fantastic

  16. Dj E.DGain on June 2, 2022 at 9:14 pm

    mad max, I had beat it 92 times so far, is that good and never gets old for me. great game even do is only made with years of conceptual art. sadly would never be more of it due to George Miller and the ever fighting with Warner Brothers. a true gem of a game lost in time.

  17. Vlan Doom on June 2, 2022 at 9:14 pm

    I played Gothic 2, Immortals and Greedfall.
    I also own Mad Max, but you’re correct – I didn’t play it.

  18. Amir Case on June 2, 2022 at 9:15 pm

    Two more…cyberpunk 2077 and rage 2….if you like doom like.shooters you just have to give these a go…cyberpunk had a disastrous release and it is still not fixed an year after it’s release….but there is a really good fps rpg hidden underneath….rage 2 suffered from.having a very barren open world with nothing in it but the shooting mechanics are top notch and if you like doom like shooters it is a must play…

    Did Jess’s voice just get deeper or am I imagining things?

  21. cableup1 on June 2, 2022 at 9:17 pm

    Just finished Fenyx. Not often satisfied with "cartoon" RPGs. This one hit the mark though, banter especially.
    Saboteur was unique and fairly absorbing. Dialogue was great.
    DNF Greedfall. Did like aspects of it but didn’t hold my attention.
    Mad Max-top shelf. Ticked off my boxes except replay value. On the same wavelength and conspicuously absent on this list- Terminator Resistance.

  22. Danny Mc on June 2, 2022 at 9:19 pm

    The Saboteur and Mad Max definitely deserve sequels!!

  23. ydnamac on June 2, 2022 at 9:21 pm

    Can we just make a rule that if you’re selling point is an "open world to explore" pleeeeeeeeeeeease don’t give the overall game a time limit!!!!

  24. Somewhat Nerdy on June 2, 2022 at 9:21 pm

    I have played mad max and I was 50/50 on ot, parts of the game I loved like the exploration, puzzle solving and melee combat …I didn’t really care for how repetitive and frustrating the car battles were. Now I do own greedfall and it’s really quite interesting, it’s like a mix of witcher and dragon age with guns and set in its own time frame

  25. Safe-T-inspector on June 2, 2022 at 9:24 pm

    What, no Amalur? Ah, well, Mad Max was, indeed, excellent.

  26. Paluca on June 2, 2022 at 9:26 pm

    Good list, I didn’t expect to see Gothic 2 on it.

  27. Jonny 1996 on June 2, 2022 at 9:27 pm

    Kingdom Come is a great open world game.

  28. Jason Rosnick on June 2, 2022 at 9:27 pm

    I just picked up Greedfall on Game pass and am loving it. It’s such a pretty game and a ton of fun.

  29. David Gowers on June 2, 2022 at 9:28 pm

    I haven’t finished it yet, but The Pathless is everything I’ve come to expect from Giant Squid/thatgamecompany considering they made Flower and Journey.

  30. J. Pearce on June 2, 2022 at 9:29 pm

    so glad you guys have been giving mad max some love lately. i watched for years wondering why no one talked about this game

  31. Nathan Porteus on June 2, 2022 at 9:32 pm

    100%, Mad Max was such a great game, well underrated. Easily the best vehicular combat in any game.

  32. Michael Kevorkian on June 2, 2022 at 9:32 pm

    I loved Mad Max, but just couldn’t get into Greedfall

  33. New Jersey on June 2, 2022 at 9:32 pm

    All the Gothic games and piranha bytes games in general are amazing. Also, biomutant great game.

  34. the beast on June 2, 2022 at 9:35 pm

    Greedfall was awsome

  35. Zentun on June 2, 2022 at 9:36 pm

    I really would like to play immortal fenyx rising but i refuse to buy an ubisoft game, i don’t agree with many things that they are doing lately and i don’t want to support them with my money, i bet this game will be on steam some day so i will wait till it happens. I heard that ubisofts games are being added to the game pass so i will wait if this really happens, if that happens i will buy one month so i can play immortal fenyx rising.

  36. Sussy Boui on June 2, 2022 at 9:36 pm


  37. Mark Williams on June 2, 2022 at 9:36 pm

    Mad max was absolutely amazing. Watch the new movie fury road too. Perfection

  38. Scrappy 520 on June 2, 2022 at 9:38 pm

    These videos need to tell us what system these games are on

  39. Roshan Dhar on June 2, 2022 at 9:38 pm

    Mad Max is really a gem. Open world, post apocalyptic and a lot of things to explore. I’ve completed it quite a few times but i visit it again and again for the a unique style of gameplay.

  40. KrusherMike on June 2, 2022 at 9:38 pm

    I overlooked Greedfall BECAUSE of the developer. I saw the trailers and all that jazz, got hyped then saw the dev’s logo. Pretty much anything that Spiders studios touches is garbage. After Bound by Flame… I couldn’t do it.

  41. Mr. AR on June 2, 2022 at 9:42 pm

    So glad to see the Saboteur getting its due on many of these lists after so much time. It was really a hidden gem.

  42. Mark Goble Music on June 2, 2022 at 9:42 pm

    Mad Max is a gem. I played it only last year and loved it.

  43. Jonny 1996 on June 2, 2022 at 9:44 pm

    Mad max and MGS5 were like Kane and lynch 2 and Mafia2. I got mad max first then MGS5. Did not finish it at the time. I later played it on PS plus again. Good game but has allot of ubiosft filler.

  44. Jesse Brierly on June 2, 2022 at 9:46 pm

    I’m so glad Mad Max is getting it’s time in the sun. It’s only crime was releasing the same day as MGS5.

  45. Flo Büh on June 2, 2022 at 9:46 pm

    Gothic 2 (and gothic 1) is a must play for rpg fans. No extrem fast action but a nice (for its time living) world and great atmosphere. Don’t forget to save a lot. 😉

  46. Swanny son on June 2, 2022 at 9:46 pm

    How’s the fact mad max had the same combat system as the modern batman games not mentioned? That game is massively slept on

  47. David Wires on June 2, 2022 at 9:52 pm

    I picked up Mad Max months back when it was on sale for 5 bucks. Well worth 5 bucks. I haven’t finished it yet because I have alot of games to get to.

  48. jenksman 69 on June 2, 2022 at 9:53 pm

    Mad max was so fun. Pre-ordered it, loved it. The open world is fun and the car modding was cool.

  49. Ian Dave Manguira on June 2, 2022 at 9:53 pm

    love mad Max especially the convoy combats

  50. Eugene Smilez on June 2, 2022 at 9:53 pm

    I loved Mad Max, surprised it was not bigger
