Fallout is a very action oriented game that will have you in the middle of fights regularly. While there is a lot of places to explore in the game, you will have to build yourself up in order to get there. Some areas have far more danger than other and you will need to increase your skills to easily get through them. Other places will offer quests for you to take part in, in order to learn what exactly an area is being used for. The great thing about the Fallout universe is that everything is interconnected in some way or another breathing a sort of believable life in the world.
Skyrim is basically Fallout’s high fantasy cousin. The world of Elder Scrolls is lush with lore and rich settings for you to explore. The land of Skyrim is one country on a huge world map that this game takes place in. That being said of course there’s a lot that bleeds over from the neighboring countries into Skyrim like the multiple races included in the franchise. There is also a lot of inter county tension between two warring factions that both have their own ideas for Skyrim’s way of life.
The gameplay is action RPG oriented, with you being able to choose from a wide range of classes to play with.

There are plenty of different towns to visit that all have interactive characters. The characters all have daily routines they go through and can give you quests to learn more about them or the area itself. This creates a very interesting dynamic as things tie together throughout the game.

The game has a very intricate potion making system which is crucial to easily take down the many monsters you will find scattered across the land. WItcher is also a much darker series than other games on this list and has extremely dark scenes and ideas held within it.

Resident Evil 7
This next game doesn’t have a huge open world or lots of characters to learn about. It does however have an amazing adventure to go on. Jump into the terrifying world of Resident Evil 7 as you try to save your own life by escaping the crazy Baker family.

Far Cry Primal
Far Cry Primal is another open world game on our list, but this time there is a paleolithic element.
In this game, you can befriend animals to help you defeat enemies or make paleolithic era tools to wage war with. You will find that other tribes in the region aren’t welcoming to yours, making part of the game about taking them down. This can be done using a variety of methods and gives the player control over all the chaos that goes on within it.

Be sure to give yourself good bases before venturing out too far to prevent useless game overs. One of the best ways to do this is to slowly explore the land around you taking attention to what you may have to face in the future in order to progress.
