Not too much fantasy there. On the other hand, the modding community keeps some of the older titles very interesting.
For the real open world stuff we might have to wait untill 2018 when TDU3 will be ready. IT has dropped the ball a little with CAU. Overpriced DLC and not very appealing to many players. Still, cop chases belong in a game like The Crew.
I´m always looking for good open World Games. But TBH, i did not buy anything during Steam Sales.
Mafia III might be fun but there are not really too many AAA games with fatal attraction.
With 4K becoming a new standard, VR and al kinds of high end new hardware to play on, Devs need to do a lot more work on support and quality. Time they usually do not get from publishers.
Most DX12 optimized games are not really DX12 and actually perform less than DX11, with no visual difference.
So it is waiting time for real DX12 games and that will take a while. It will also result in massive downloads and the need for new hardware and more storage.
Maybe 2017 will surprise us all with something cool.
Right now i started off with playing some older titles.
