Red Dead Redemption has a huge map (I thinks it's bigger then GTA San Andreas) and is a great game.

well in fuel it takes about 5 min (not sure alltough but it takes alot) to get from 1 side to the other side in 1 area... and there are a lot of areas ( if ur gonna try to get from 1 map side to another ur gonna have to order some pizza and something to drink first)... and u can drive pretty far off the map too. (couldnt find its map on google because FUEL is a pretty common word :P)

And World War 2 online has a larger area

Quote:
Gameplay takes place in a single game world, which is a 1/2 scale map of Western Europe. It is the largest MMOG game world map, at over 350,000 km˛, with most play occurring in a 30,000 km˛ central area in which most capturable cities, airfields and ports have been placed. Two alternate servers are available for training events and beta testing the next version respectively.
Actually, I just found this too for a game called Midwinter:

Quote:
The game is set on the 160,000-square-mile (410,000 km2) isle of Midwinter, in a post-apocalyptic scenario of the entire world is covered in snow and ice.

I think this why the Guinness World Records chose Fuel. Maybe because the other games that are bigger than it have to load between playing areas so it is like a bunch of playing areas. Fuel does not load so it is 1 playing area so that is why the Guinness World Records might have chose Fuel.

rixto003: Here is the link to the game map: http://www.heddly.com/flatout2/purpl...mbers-1024.jpg

Also, to get form 1 corner to the other it can take between 2 to 3 hours, maybe even more so it takes a very long time. Here is a link to a youtube video where it took them 2 hours and 12 minutes. It has been sped up to 9 minutes and 55 seconds: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VWOHJuS5DQY

Well.... Depending on exactly how you want to measure it (actually, regardless) I will say Eve online. (EVE Online - Home)

It has 250,000 players (or so, but only about 50,000 online at any one time) all on ONE SERVER (test server doesn't count). It has over 5000 solar systems, and each solar system is hosted on an individual node (that means that it is like a map, each one loads as you move through gates).
You can technically (no one actually does it) fly from one planet to another (or star station, etc) either by warping (a few seconds) or just flying (could take weeks).

So... If you wanted to look at Km^3, well.... good luck figuring it out. If you want to consider amount of maps, 5k is a lot.

Even with it scaled (you see hundreds of thousands of km at once) it is still HUGE. I never got tired of seeing all the different solar systems, suns, planets and moons (especially with the Dominion upgrade!).

Not trying to sell Eve here, just saying.

Lot of views on this one, but Elder Scrolls II is very large indeed, as is World Of Warcraft remember you have Outland as well and Northrend.

I have to say it. Technically, traveling from planet to moon at NON warp in EVE would take hours, from planet to planet could take DAYS.

Though I would have to agree that Fuel would still probably be the winner.
