Skyrim isn't story driven, GTA 4 isn't story driven, Far Cry 3 isn't story driven.
The melee combat in Skyrim is the best I've found in an action RPG, by a long shot. If you prefer shooters, but want an infinite-lasting open world with unparalleled detail like Skyrim, go for Fallout 3 or Fallout: New Vegas with these mods.
Between those two, Fallout 3 has a more dynamic and interesting open world, while New Vegas has much better writing, story variation, character development, gunplay (only due to iron sights), sound effects, and new features like faction reputation system and disguise system. Whichever one you choose (you should get both eventually), play them only
with those mods (except for EVE in Fallout 3), and play only
on Very Hard difficulty otherwise the game is too nerfed.Edited by boredgunner - 9/17/13 at 10:38am
