Guinness World Records reckons Fuel is the largest videogame ever made, as it spans 5,560 square miles of terrain.


Daggerfall dwarfs it by a metric fuckton then:

Daggerfall is the largest Elder Scrolls game to date, featuring a game world estimated as being 161,600 square kilometres (62,394 square miles or 40,400,000 acres)

"Bigger than Hong Kong, Singapore, St Lucia and the Isle of Man put together."

er... in geography terms, those things are all very small. Being bigger than four very small things put together doesn't really make for very much.

Who's going to tell Guiness?

It does say the largest console game, so technically they're right.

FUEL is the largest CONSOLE game, the guiness world records even said this in the press release "Largest playable area in a console game: The largest playable environment in a console game is 5,560 square miles (14,400 km), and is featured in FUEL (Codemasters, 2009)."

Well... well... I'm sure someone could get Daggerfall running under Linux on a PS3.

So can you actually drive the whole way across the game world like you could in Daggerfall or are you just limited to sticking to the tracks?
For some reason I think there is not one track that allows you to race for 3 hours!
Hey I could be wrong, but who would make a race game that a race lasted 3 hours?
