Some open world games depict places in real life and their receptions are positive.

Here are games setting in real life and the score on Metacritic are not lower than 75.

Grand Theft Auto[edit | edit source]

Locations: New York City (III, Liberty City Stories, IV, Chinatown Wars); Miami (Vice City, Vice City Stories); Los Angeles (San Andreas, V); San Francisco (San Andreas); Las Vegas (San Andreas)

GTAIII is the originator of the current open world concept. 7 years later, the legendary GTAIV was born, and 5 years later, another miracle, GTAV.

In this franchise, you play as some bad guys. You can complete the story lines and can still enjoy exploring the cities after that.

Sleeping Dogs[edit | edit source]

It was originally “True Crime: Hong Kong” and thankfully it is not another True Crime game.

In this game, you play as an undercover police officer.
