Best Bethesda Games


The Top Ten

1 The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

This is a tad bit better then fallout 3

Actually this title does compare. They were produced by the same people, can't we all just agree that ALL of Bethesda's games are great.

I've gotten at least 1 Thousand hours on this half of that from mods. This game just keeps on going, and I just keep playing it. The modding community is the best in the world Giving mods that could be a DLC on their own. Skyrim will always hold a special place in my heart as the best game I have ever played.

My favorite - codydoestuff

2 Fallout 3

Skyrim gets boring after awhile and is only number one for the mainstream attention. This game may be older and may have bugs but at least you can always go back and play it over again.

Better than skyrim By a lil more though skyrim is fun

Game got me into the Fallout franchise, got legitimately upset when Liam Neeson died.

The wasteland appeals to me as a setting.

3 Dishonored

I love this game to death! The sword combat is faultless, and it actually feels like you connect. The graphics are amazing. This game surprised me by how much fun it was. I usually preferred open world games, but this is just amazing. Easily the most fun solely level based game.

Easily the best game Bethesda have made. It takes nearly all of the things Skyrim tried to do and does them properly. We can only hope that the people responsible for Dishonoured are involved in Elder Scrolls 6, too. Dishonoured has a great story that, even with a silent protagonist, still somehow forces you to care about the result - something that Skyrim failed to do. Dishonoured also has a beautiful setting. Even though it is not open world, and doesn't even try to hide that fact, it is still a hundred times more immersive than that of Skyrim or Fallout (both of which feel more like under-developed premises than proper worlds: Skyrim spread too little substance over too great a space, and Fallout feels more like the dream of the protagonist in which events only ever happen when the protagonist is there to witness them).

Love this game it's kind of like skyrim and fallout players are free to do whatever they want and the graphics are beautiful.

4 The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

First game I ever played for 24hrs straight. Failed middle school algebra because of this game. No shame

Oblivion has the most fun stuff to do I always play for longest time with this game compared to Skyrim

Provides hours and hours of enticing gameplay. Replayability is a lot higher than Skyrim's, and I love the environments and the characters.

Skyrim in my opinion is overhyped. Oblivions's quests were waaay better. Going into someones dream and doing tests is hard to forget, Competing in the arena is badass and had much more interesting faction quests. The Mages Guild and Fighters guild gave a nice hq in every city and in Skyrim a small village burns down, in Oblivion a city. And dragons get boring fast while going into daedric realms is quite a lot more interesting.

5 The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind

Helped to completely change the genre of RPG's, giving the player total freedom in a foreign world.

There is simply no way of topping Morrowind.

This game has a great story and world. However this game WAY overhyped by nostalgic fanboys. With that being said it is a great game.

The Red Mountain kind of topped it... with ash.

6 Fallout: New Vegas

It was made by Obsidian. Not Oblivion. It is still licensed under Bethesda though.

This was made by OBSIDIAN, Not OBLIVION. Get it right. Also, it technically does count as a Bethesda game since it is licensed as such.

The best game in the rebooted fallout series, fallout 4 appeals to a completely different audience

Very good story and DLCs.

7 Fallout 4

Get a lot of hate yet it is still loved by most people who played it. It's different from Fallout 3 but I think that's what makes it a step forward for Bethesda.

I'm shocked to see Fallout 4 ranked this low. This game is the best game I've ever played. The story the mechanics the choices I dare say it's perfect

Everything that involves this game is awesome, not just 'the game', this one changed my life.

Definitely the best game ever. lol who would not play dis

10 Doom 4

Greatest game I've ever played in my life

This is the best

I love the music

Great game, fast paced and bloody... any real doom fan wants that. Fight like hell..

The Contenders

11 Pirates of the Carribean
12 Brink

The action was just awesome and you never felt alone.

13 Wolfenstein: The New Order
14 Doom (2016)

Possibly the fastest game I have ever played, managed to have a ton of action while also having a convincing yet discreet storyline.


15 Fallout 2

This was made by Black Isle Studios. The title was later sold to Bethesda.

You realize this isn't bethesda.

16 Dishonored 2
17 Prey

This is the best bethesda game since skyrim. Starting with the soundtrack, OH MY GOD that soundtrack is a masterpiece. The gameplay is beautiful and the graphics are like something out of the National Art Museum.

Excellent. Almost as good as fallout 4. Lots of replay ability

18 The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited

Not even Bethesda

19 The Evil Within
20 Fallout Shelter
