exploration is a method by which they employ their gameplay, which I admit freely that the styles of gameplay are VERY different.
Windwaker's ocean feels huge and makes it hard for me to play it because I have an irrational fear of large bodies of water :(
In a similar but less phobic way for me, Fallout 3, Oblivion, and Skyrim have these absolutely colossal expanses of terrain.
I just can't ignore that sense of exploration as it applies itself to the gameplay, thus I without direct intent find myself comparing them, because of the power of the theme in exploration. That's the similarity. :X
