3The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

If you’re looking for a game that feels and plays just like Fallout 4, then how about one developed by the same company? Also from Bethesda is The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Okay, so it might not be set in a post-apocalyptic future; instead Skyrim is firmly set in a fantasy world inhabited by dragons. But in terms of open world exploration and RPG elements, the games are two peas in a pod.

In Skyrim, players take on the role of the Dragonborn. You’re on a quest to defeat the World-Eater dragon known as Alduin. Unless you can stop him first, he’s poised to destroy the world. No pressure, then. With a huge world to travel around in at will, Skyrim excellently captures the freedom and sense of wonder that makes Fallout 4 so enjoyable. And so, if you’re looking for the best games like Fallout 4, Skyrim should definitely be on your list.
