Gta3 was the only game that locked me in a 10 hour gaming session, it was just to much to handle coming from isometric 2d open worlds, the first time i beated the shit out of a sicilian mob guy who talked in perfect sicilian slang with a wood bat or the first bitch i ran over with a stolen taxi...ah youth.

Although i never tried omikron nomad soul on pc, that one was the first 3d open world (although not even close to the scope of gta3)
