Large Video Game Worlds Size Comparison

Large Video Game Worlds Size Comparison

Kotaku's Mike Fahey discovered an interesting image over on Digg that provides us with a visual comparison of many of gaming's largest game worlds, MMOs included.

In the article, Fahey asks us, "Does size matter? Compare the size of these seven video game words to the amount of enjoyment you got out of playing the game."

Many MMO gamers and especially our readers here at often regard a large open world as being key to a great MMOG. Read below for a breakdown of MMO game world sizes according to the above image:

World of Warcraft -- 80mi2

Asheron's Call -- 500mi2

Guild Wars: Nightfall -- 15,000mi2

The Lord of the Rings Online-- 30,000mi2

If you've played more than one of the above games did you find the one with the comparitively larger world more enjoyable as a result? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
