Exactly how is Skyrim so much of a sanbox?

I mean Minecraft is a real sandbox where you build everything yourself and people have always said the same thing of the elder scrolls game but there is not really much player created content in the game.

Sure, you can ignore the story and just explore and do anything the game allows you instead but you can frankly do most of that in GW2 as well.

No, the word "Sandbox" have been used far too much, Skyrin is if anything a hybrid. True sandboxes let you create your own content.

Edit: I am not saying the games are alike though, they arent.

Yes you can play it like skyrim just wander about and go where it looks interesting while doing your crafting.

Gw2 has a better engine than rift
Handles crowds better
Looks better on high end systems
Has better physics

rift uses the gamebryo engine BTW, as used in oblivion, warhammer and fallout 3

DING DING (we have a winner)

Skyrim gives the "illusion" of being a sandbox- Actually most of its mechanics are "illusions" . Its a cool game (and phenominal once modded) but a sandbox it is not...

Sandbox is far too over used these days. In MMO terms many think it means FFA PVP and thats it.

Also skyrim isn't a sandbox, its a hybrid.

I guess you could call it a sandbox if you are heavily into messing about with the editor / construction set though. But hell you could call half life 2 a sandbox in that case - messing about with hammer.

Yes, it has the same horribly imprecise mouse control as Skyrim.

You can do the story mode of any dungeon with a group of random players, provided they aren't completely behind on gear, and have a least a basic understanding of how to play their profession.

Explorable mode is intended to be played with a well-equipped and well-coordinated group. You may want to make at least a few friends online if you want to tackle those, and you'll want to make yourself familiar with combos and group combat mechanics.

First of all, the game is not much like Skyrim. What comes to the dungeons though, for instanced group content you need a group, but open world you can explore without the help of others. Though some hidden caves / puzzles can have a bit tough mobs sometimes.

 

The group content dungeons arent much about exploration imo anyway, the content is more tailored for completing the challenge rather than exploring. At least to my limited experience on dungeons.

It's awesome that I agree with, but it's not a sandbox. All the content is fixed in the game. It's a static world with triggers for events. Surely that's not a definition of a sandbox game.

I have over 350 hours in Skyrim and probably over 100 hours in GW2 and based on the way I play I can definitely see similarities. Though I spend the majority of my time exploring, crafting and gathering.  With quests thrown in here and there.

At higher levels it feels like Skyrim, to me, as you can wander all over the map and find a challenge.  The big difference in this respect is that your level is lowered to match an area but not raised; whereas Skyrim just matches the game world to you.  Obviously the Skyrim method wouldn't be feasible in any MMO without having heavily sharded areas(areas instance matched to your level, or having advancement become trivial(your level matched to the area, higher or lower).

Again, I said it FEELS like Skyrim to me for those reasons and a handful of others, but I wouldn't go nearly as far as to say that it's LIKE Skyrim.  It still uses a UI bar interface which makes combat much different.  It uses tab targeting, though other creatures in the attack radius will still be damaged if ya wave yer sword at 'em.  And you have much more control over your advancement in Skyrim than you do in GW2. 

But as far as the world you're in is concerned and how you go about traveling it, I feel alot of similarities. 

Anybody that says GW2 is small, even when compared to Skyrim, is smoking some serious crack.  I'm not sure that Skyrim is the size, area, or quest content of even half of GW2.  The biggest cities in Skyrim are maybe between 1 and 2 slices of the Divinity's Reach pie, sizewise.  And the other races in GW2 have their own good sized cities.

With either game, like Loke said, the word "sandbox" is a stretch.  Skyrim is more "sandbox" than GW2 due to your open advancement, but hey, TSW has open advancement, too.  That doesn't make it a sandbox.

So, OP, I guess it depends on what appeals to you most about Skyrim.  If it's the big world and how every bit of it is still available and useful to you as you advance, GW2 could well be down your alley.  If it's the character advancement or the combat, GW2 is basically an improved (IMO) MMO system whose choice is based as much on the weapon type(s) you choose as much as your class.

Lol, not even close. Skyrim has much more than GW2 and to everyone above saying otherwise is just simply delusional.

It almost makes me throw up a little to say GW2 and Skyrim are alike in the same sentence. Please stop with the terrible posts.
