Game worlds are getting big. Like really, really big. Have you played Just Cause 2? That island is massive. In game world sizes it's practically a continent. Don't believe me?

As you can see game worlds have grown a bit, and by "a bit" I mean a very, very, very, very large amount.

Remember when Grand Theft Auto III came out and we were all amazed by how huge the city was? Now it looks like the kind of thing a girl couldn't help but laugh at if it was whipped out in front of her.

If you don't own Just Cause 2, go scrounge up $3

It's remarkable to think back on the joy Just Cause 2 has given me in light of its absurd sale price right now on Steam: $2.99. For that little money, it'd be a mistake not to add this to your library, plain and simple. Even ...more
