The Witcher Wild Hunt has the best graphics of any open world game.
I have played it three times and now am looking for another game.
There are many "best open world games" on the web but on investigating
deeper I discovered conflicting views on each game.
Can someone please help me decide what game to buy.

Sleeping Dogs, Watch Dogs, Quantum Break, The Division?

I'm not sure what type of open world game you'd like to try, but you can take a look at Ark: Survival Evolved.

Subnautica is apparently really good.
Conan Exiles looks fun.
Ark is pretty cool.

Well, if "open world" is the only requirement, GTA V is damn amazing.

Skyrim and friends are also very popular.

World of Warcraft but be careful game is addictive.
Dragon Age Origin was pretty cool but its not so open world, more story driven.

Archeage, is free to play, so you can download it and give it a try ;)
It also have a subscription component, if you want to partake in the more serious side of the game such as building houses etc.
A lot of people are complaining that the game is pay to win, but in my opinion the game is quite well balanced in that aspect. I know of quite a number of people that are making so much in-game currency that they can support 4-6 account's subscription plus all the shop items (which can indirectly also be bought with in-game currency).
The game however needs a big time investment to compete in PVP etc.

World of Warcraft is still by far the most popular MMO game out there, and in recent years the game has shift focus to casual players. So you can play it when as as you want.

Eve-online now also have a free to play system, so you can test it out. But be ware, similar to Archeage it has a very steep learning curve and it will take a huge time investment to catch up with people playing for several years.

+1 to the GTA V's here,
Skyrim v2 is an option as well and the Division, if you keen to play with a few mates.

I am looking for something more in line with The Witcher Wild Hunt. I believe Dragon Age: Inquisition is favorably comparable.
Yes... Dragon Age is a very beautiful game. I enjoyed all 3 so far.

Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen

I havn't played The Witcher 3 so i can't compare but from what i saw Dragon's Dogma is not as epic but it's still a very cool game.
Used to be only on ps3 until it got ported in 2016 which is probably why it's under the radar for the most part.
