The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
This is controversial, we know. There are arguments to be made for Daggerfall, Morrowind and Oblivion to represent The Elder Scrolls in this list. But Skyrim’s merit carries the most weight.
It’s Bethesda’s most convincing fantasy world yet, bringing together varied and spectacular geography, and a civil war storyline that explores the attitudes of its people towards history, to create a land that feels lived in.
And those fights against the dragons are also quite cool.
