10 Greatest Role-Playing Games Of The Last Ten Years

1. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Skyrim Hearth

In my humble opinion, Skyrim is the most detailed and most entertaining RPG game of all-time. It's open world is beautiful and the gameplay is unrivalled. You start out as a slave who gets released, then it's up to you to turn your life around and make something of yourself. And that's where the fun begins.

The Empire of Tamriel is in shambles and the King of Skyrim has been murdered. The world is in trouble and it's up to you to restore some order. It isn't always easy, but it's definitely fun getting there. There's almost too much to do in the game. Almost.

You have the opportunity to make coin by doing small jobs, which in turn you can use to purchase better weapons and armour. Earn respect with each task you complete and you begin to earn XP and fame along the way. You'll have countless battles with humans, mages and dragons and I can truly say that they're all enjoyable to partake in.

You'd think for a game that you can easily dump over 100 hours in would start to get tedious, but you'd be wrong. Not only is the main story fun, but the DLC is great. Sadly, I'm still playing some of them. Not that I'm complaining - it's always fun slaying dragons. Whether it be in video games or real life. Yeah, that's right: I slay dragons.


Did I forget a game? I'm sure I did. I can't play them all! So be heard in the comments section below.
