Sandbox gaming has been around for decades now, though it took some time to become mainstream and had help from the likes of The Sims. The genre-defining moment came years later with the release of Garry’s Mod in 2006. The sandbox game allowed players to build and customize their own tools and weapons and all sorts of gameplay equipment. Garry’s Mod’s Tool Gun was one such tool.
