I'm definitely planning on getting assassin's creed 3. And I'm looking for a good class-based shooter game with good multiplayer. Should I get battlefield 3 or medal of honor warfighter or borderlands 2? Medal of honor seems to have more classes.
And in addition, are there any games like grand theft auto with free-roam and isn't revolved around pure combat. or with non-essential combat. Like, a game where there's free-roam in grand theft auto and the storyline isn't filled with shooting and killing.
Borderlands 2 looks like the game to get if you're wanting for a gajillion copies of guns to harvest and team-based missions with your squad of outlanders.
The Infamous series has an open-world setting, although the gameplay is very driven toward either combating different sets of hostiles with electricity in order to protect citizens or just obliterating everyone who gets in your way as part of the good and bad karma. Instead of bullets you're firing electricity, if that makes any difference.
The Simpsons: Hit and Run is another less-violent sandbox game that comes to mind. However, this was released in the generation prior. If you still have a PlayStation 2 or a PlayStation 3 that can run the discs, this might just be the kind of game you're looking for.
