The 15 Most Awesome Games Like Skyrim You Can't Miss Out On

Way back in 2011, Bethesda Softworks treated us all to the widely-popular and insanely addictive TES V: Skyrim. Many of us have spent countless hours among Skyrim's frigid peaks and lush woodlands slaying dragons for their souls, battling soldiers and bandits, gleefully blasting rude peasants off of ledges, and maniacally hoarding mundane objects like cheese wheels.

Even though Skyrim recently received a facelift with the recent release of the Special Edition (forcing many of us back into that Helgen-bound wagon), nearly six years have passed and that's far more than enough time to exhaust a title, even one so large as our beloved Skyrim. Fortunately, here is a combination of newer as well as a few older games that can appeal to even the most die-hard Dragonborn. Let's start with something familiar...

15) The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion full gameplay walkthrough

Released back in 2006, Oblivion takes place in Skyrim's neighboring southern province of Cyrodiil some two centuries before the events of Skyrim. You find yourself incarcerated within the dungeons of the Imperial City and after witnessing Tamriel's emperor cut down by assassins you become entrusted with the task of delivering The Amulet of Kings to the emperor's illegitimate heir, who is the only one capable of thwarting the demonic hordes of Daedra now appearing all over Cyrodiil.

Players can choose from the same list of ten races present in Skyrim with a wide range of weaponry, armor, spells, and skills while following the main questline or free-roaming Cyrodiil's open landscape.  Oblivion is a great choice for newer Elder Scrolls fans who maybe want to familiarize themselves more with the world of Tamriel.

Stop right there, Daedric scum!
