Best Bethesda Games

The Top Ten

1 The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Product Image

This game represents the best melding of a classic, quest-oriented rpg, with a first person shooter ever created. The environments are breath-taking. The depth of the characterization of the npcs is surprisingly vivid and the arc of the game itself, encompassing a no-boundaries, open world is immensely satisfying; even the sound track reinforces the grandeur of the game play. My only critique would be the dearth of voice actors. Different, important characters brought to life by the same voice talent is disappointing, at times cartoonishly so. Overall, this is the best game I have ever played and it is so by a considerable margin.

There are two main versions of Skyrim: without DLCs and with Dawnguard and Dragonborn.
Without DLCs Skyrim is awesome, and Oblivion and Morrowind can compete for the best Bethesda game ever.
But with those DLCs there's no way they can compete.
I've been so (un)lucky to have to wait until the release of complete experience before playing Skyrim.
And it was AMAZING. I couldn't literally stop playing it, I eventually took days off the work to keep playing it. I ignored my kids and wife.
I literally shutdown any kind of social life interaction for about 120 hours of non stop gaming.
And I don't regret it. And I know it hardly will happen again.
It's not just thew best Bethesda game to date.
It's one of the BEST GAME EVER to date.

I agree that this is my favorite game of all time. I have spent countless hours playing as and replaying this games. This was the first open world game I have ever played. And it is the best open world game I've ever played. I will always jump at the opportunity to play this game. The soundtrack of this game is very immersive and makes it more of an experience than just mere entertainment. I will always be a huge advocate for this game.

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.

2 Fallout 3 Fallout 3 Product Image

I played skyrim WAY more than Fallout 3, but this is way better. fallout 3 feels more like a game because half the time I played skyrim I had to look up everything to understand it, but fallout 3 tells you, or shows you what happens (or what happened), what something is, and just helps you understand. it is a game with an ending, but without one as well (as long as you get dlc). the cap is 30, but that's fine because every time you level up you feel like you have accomplished something, and you are rewarded amazingly, unlike skyrim.

I played Skyrim and Oblivion before this. (I know, those are not to be compared to this, this is different, but it's a Bethesda list so..) Oblivion bored me, Skyrim addicted me, and this.. oh, this, beyond addicted me. It sucked me into it's world and didn't let go. So much freedom too. The choices was what Skyrim was missing. It's worth getting this game set up on Win 10. It's that good.

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.

While not as good as New Vegas, Fallout 3 does bring many new concepts into the franchise and is all Bethesda's own work.

3 Fallout: New Vegas Fallout: New Vegas Product Image

I would qualify this as better than Fallout 4, strictly because Fallout 4 removed some of the qualities that made this game lovable

Fallout new vegas gives player more freedom than fallout 3. Where the courier is a character we can feel like ourselves without having quest of finding our father

Better story, better lore, better location, well it beats fallout 4 and fallout 3 a lot because of its originality.

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

4 Fallout 4 Fallout 4 Product Image

I have It on ps4 its just amazing it huge more than 100hrs of fun action pack exploring building madness I have every had and the detail of the hole game o god the detail
the story line is grate and the 3 dlc I have only add so much more I will be play the for years to come I give fallout 4 5 out of 5 if you have not got it getting trust me.

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

This was the first Fallout I played. I've never been a fan of games like this but quickly was drawn in to the story and flow of the game. I love it!

5 The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Product Image

First Bethesda game I ever played and I have well over 500 hours on it. This is what got me through middle school and some of high school. Oblivion was there for me when I was depressed and had to escape the world. I recently bought again and am feeling the nostalgia hit. I'm much better now and it when I play this game, I'm able to kinda go back to past and see where I am now. Best Bethesda game ever for me. 2nd is Morrowind haha!

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.

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

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

6 Dishonored Dishonored Product Image

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).

Honestly, astonishing graphics even with the lowest settings (if you play it for a couple of hours at least) It depends a lot on your choices, honestly my favourite game. Better than Skyrim (And I've spent thousands of hours on Skyrim) The soundtrack is amazing, the story is amazing and last but not least. The DLCs are amazing.
To sum it all up. Dishonored is an amazing game which is based a lot around your actions and your choices. Amazing.

Just, amazing

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.

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

7 The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind Product Image

Morrowind is the best game that Bethesda ever did, by far. Daggerfall is a very good game and revolutionary in many ways and Morrowind is Bethesda masterpiece. Both games are extremely better than Oblivion, Skyrim, Fallout 3/4 in terms of desing, mechanics and content. Morrowind and Daggerfall are truly rpgs and include intelligent, adult design -in the real sense of adult, serious, convoluted, deep-. Morrowind specifically offer the most detailed and original world in videogame history, one of the best art designs, and the largest set of possibilities in a single player game -is one of the longest to "finish" games ever-, also no game before or after made so well the exploration.

Skyrim: never played it, but I hear side quests are bland, so meh not interested. Graphics (for the special edition) and combat (against dragons, specially) are the best. But still kinda, meh...

Oblivion: plot is cool with all the oblivion gates. graphics are fine. It’s biggest flaw is when you level up, everything levels up with you which makes leveling up altogether just pointless and makes the game a bit of a chore. Pretty good game overall, I guess.

Morrowind: My vote. I hear it has a great story. Want to get, hear it is amazing, but only minor flaws are graphics (which are pretty okay anyway on the Xbox One S/X) and it has luck based combat, which isn’t really too bad since it’s still real-time and when you level up you get luckier and hit/block more efficiently. This part is good because you can really tell you are leveling up, especially when the world isn’t leveling up with you (looking at you, Oblivion.)

Amazing lore and world to lose yourself in. While the graphics are dated and the combat system is horrid until you start to get going in the game, it is extremely fun. The fact that no npcs are safe from death makes it feel lifelike.

This is honestly the best game that I've ever played. It has endless replay value and so much lore it makes you feel like you're really there.

8 Doom (2016) Doom (2016) Product Image

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

This throwback to the original is one of the greatest additions to the FPS genre this decade.

The best gore game what I have ever played

Doom 2016 won't launch on my new PC. it goes to 99% and stops

9 Wolfenstein: The New Order Wolfenstein: The New Order Product Image
10 Rage Rage Product Image

I don't see why everyone hated this game, from the minigames to the actual missions I loved it. The graphics were decent and the missions were pretty fun

This game sucked.

Best game I have ever played...EVER

The Contenders

11 Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus Product Image

Anybody who says The New Order is better than Wolfenstein II probably just never played it. The New Colossus is one of the best FPS ever released on the PS4. It’s not only the best Bethesda Wolfenstein game ever released, its also just a fantastic experience and story even upon replay. Seriously give it a shot. Most think that The New Order was “good” but never bothered to buy the second one, that’s because the New Order is not as good as they think. It lacks greatly in comparison this installment. Play it!

12 Brink Brink Product Image

The action was just awesome and you never felt alone.

20 Prey Prey Product Image

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.

This game has a great soundtrack and is just gorgeous. A real blast to mess around in

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

24 Doom Doom Product Image

How is this not higher it's a classic.

INFINITY IS TEMPORARY. DOOM. IS. ETERNAL.

25 Fallout 76

It's a good game, it's a game stile I love, and it might have some glitches but all games do (well maybe not as many glitches but they are working on that) But soon maybe after most of the updates it will be a better game.

Um, this game sucks. In fact it's the WORST Bethesda game ever made

I Cannot wait to kill the Grafton Monster and build a city on the missile silos

No one asked for this crap! Worst bethesda game ever!
