The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim is by no means a perfect game, but no one can deny that it helped shape some of the best open-world RPGs that came after it. The vast and beautiful world, the great character design and the brilliant lore made the game what it is. It is normal for a Skyrim fan to experience withdrawal even after putting in thousands of hours into the game, but we can help you with that. Here is the list of video games similar to Skyrim that are our recommendations. You can find these games like Skyrim for PS4, mac, android, Xbox 360, Xbox One, iphone and even online.
12. Dark Souls III
The Dark Souls franchise as a whole is notorious for its difficulty and yet, it manages to draw millions of players due to its inexplicable charm. Dark Souls III offers medieval combat mechanics and infusions that can heavily impact your gameplay. Unlike Skyrim, where the lore is presented to you as you keep exploring Dark Souls is far more cryptic with its storytelling. This does not mean that the storytelling is any less intriguing, it’s just not presented too easily, and you really need to put your time into the game to fully grasp what’s going on. The combat is slow and methodical, and one wrong move can pull up the “You Died” menu on-screen. The game isn’t your average RPG as it requires you to be focused and learn enemy movement patterns to get the upper hand and do not be disappointed.
11. Middle Earth: Shadow of War
If you are a Lord of The Rings fan and want to delve deeper into the franchise, you should check the Middle Earth series out. While you could start with Middle of Earth: Shadow of Mordor which is regarded by many as the better title, but it isn’t entirely necessary. Shadow of War was an unfortunate release in 2017 as the developers implemented pay-to-win mechanics. Despite the game being an amazing RPG, its reputation was marred due to poor decisions made by Monolith Studios. However, the studio did make amends, and the game was re-balanced with all unfair mechanics removed. In its current state, it is a must-try for any LOTR fan and also any Skyrim fan who wants to try out a new RPG. You get to play as Tallion, a ranger who also happens to be harboring the spirit of Celebrimbor. When it comes to gameplay, the mechanics are very similar to Shadow of Mordor, but the use of the Nemesis engine makes things much more engaging. If you are a fan of the movies or games, you will recognize a number of characters shown in-game and it is truly an experience you don’t want to miss out on.
10. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
