If you are looking for the top 5 games like Skyrim then look no further. In this article I am going to give you the complete run down of the best games like skyrim out there.

More Games Like Skyrim:

1. The Elder Scrolls: Oblivion

The predecessor to Skyrim is obviously the game that is most like it. This Bethesda classic broke records, and while the graphics look dated today, it still has literally hundreds and hundreds of hours of unique gameplay available.

Any true fans of the series must check out this game.

2. Fallout 3

Fallout 4 is a close contender, but that being said it was Fallout 3 that inspired Skyrim as much as Oblivion did. Created by the same developers, Fallout 3 is a top game that offers all the open-world mechanics that Skyrim does.

Like Skyrim this game has got some serious moral choices to be made, which means that you can side with certain factions, people etc.

If you haven't played the game you absolutely can't miss it and it's my personal favorite of all the Fallout games.

3. Fallout 4

Similar to the Skyrim and Fallout 3, we have Fallout 4. The game has some features that neither of its predecessors do (skyrim kinda does with their DLCs) such as the ability to build bases, and a more complex crafting system.

I don't think there's much more to say about this game other than it's an obvious choice for a top game like Skyrim.

4. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

This game has some similar mechanics in the sense that you have the open-world, progressive levelling and heavily story driven gameplay.

Unlike Skyrim, the game isn't in first-person which is a big drawback for a lot of folks, myself included and that's why it isn't higher up on the list. It lacks a certain level of immersion that games like Skyrim have and generally Bethesda stick to the first-person mode with the option for third-person gameplay.

Overall though it's a top game set in a very complex, and steeped in lore fantasy world that offers you insane amounts of gaming memories.

5. Middle-Earth: Shadow Of Mordor

Again this is another third-person style game which is set in an extremely famous fantasy world. The one created by J.R.R Tolkien and made famous by the Lord of the Rings movies.

You just can't escape the fact that this is a brilliant game, and while it may not be as open-world as other games on this list... It does make the cut, just about.

If nothing else I'd say that the game is similar to Skyrim because it offers insanely fun combat. Where most of the combat is somewhat optional, but larger parts of the story require some amount of combat. However you can stealth around certain missions like you can in Skyrim if that's the kind of player that you are.

Nobody that likes Skyrim that I've talked to dislikes this game, so it's worth a go!


There are a lot of games out there that are similar to skyrim, but these are my top five picks for fans of the series. I genuinely believe anyone that's a fan of the elder scrolls games, especially skyrim will love all of these games.
