So I made a recent thread asking for favorite sandbox games. Many replys were GTA, Skyrim, or Saints Row. The wiki lists them as sandbox games and states "A sandbox style game is any game were you can choose to not further the main storyline at will." How is that a definition of a sandbox game? I would say a sandbox game is an example of an open world game but allows the player to alter the world. Games like GTA, Skyrim, or Saints Row don't belong under the sandbox concept.
I want to get some feedback from the community before I change the sandbox concept page.
