What to play next...after Skyrim?

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
So, I've been having an absolutely great time with Skyrim, and have a lot of hours left before Im remotely finished with it. But I can't help but think...what should I put on my list to play next?

Im a huge fan of RPGs, and the open world scene is a great aspect. But I'm also a sucker for a great story, regardless of how open the world is.

That being said, what should I play after Skyrim? I havent hit Fallout 3 at all, didnt care for Oblivion...got partly into DA:O before Skyrim, I've considered Witcher 2 but havent sunk the cash for it yet...Metro 2033 looked interesting - what do you guys think? What are you going to play after Skyrim?

I would give the Witcher 2 a try. Its not open world but its definitely a great experience and a solid game. A must play if your into RPG's.

Well, for me I can't imagine a life after Skyrim... frown.gif It is probably the greatest game I've ever played. And it's really my honest opinion..

That said, I've only been playing it for about 17 + hours. I think one can easily sink 150 + hours into this game. Probably alot more.

And then you have the coming expansions for Skyrim. Bethesda has promised large expansions. And seeing how popular this epic game is getting, I think there will be several big expansions for it...

Anyway, over to your question... What to play after Skyrim.. You should really play Oblivion, even if it cannot compare to Skyrim, I had some epic time with it in 2007. Probably 200 hours +.. It's actually a great game, and with all the mods for it, it will be even greater. Morrowind is also epic. It too has alot of mods to make it even better.

Fallout 3 is a must with all of it's DLC's. Also Fallout New Vegas.

I had over 300 hours in oblivion across 2 characters, and Skyrim is at least an order of magnitude larger in terms of scope, so I'm planning on skyrim taking me to 2013. Seriously.

If you haven't played The Witcher 2 I liked that more than Skyrim even though I am LOVING Skyrim.

You can grab Witcher 2 region free steam code completely legit for 20 bucks or under on any cd key site. All my friends did.

Try Oblivion with mods. And I'm sure someone is making Oblivion mods with Skyrim assets as we speak lol.
