Default Exploration / sandbox-y games?

Any good exploration games out there? Games with a heavy emphasis on exploration.

Bonus points if it features procedural generation (randomly generated levels).

I own Junk Jack and have played terraria, these are good examples. 3D / 1st person I am open to as well though.

Any ideas?

Here are some...

Heavy emphasis on exploration:

Ravensword Shadowlands - open world
Aralon - open world
Indigo Lake - open world
Star Wars KOTOR - open world
Gangstar Vegas - open world
The Dark Knight Returns - open world
Battle Supremacy - sort of open world, but has realtime missions and objectives that keep you from exploring anytime
Bard's Tale
Iesabel
Waking Mars
Unmechanical
Shardlands

Procedurally generated levels:

Heroes of Loot - random dungeons
Cardinal Quest - roguelike
Boson X - endless runner
Quadropus Rampage

Dungeon Nightmares - 1st person horror game (no combat). Explore a dungeon who's internals are randomly generated as you progress through nights. Scary as ****

Hero of Many and Icoboto aren't open world or sandboxy, but they have a focus on exploration and discovery. Discovery of the mechanics, exploring the levels

They're not all the exact same subject, but share a common idea: sandbox/open-world games with lots of exploration.

I'm not being a d*** about anything. I'm just pointing out that these types of topics are popping up a lot lately.
