Pick One: Which Is The Best Bethesda Game Studios RPG?

It's time for another round of Pick One! This week, with Starfield now having been out for a little while on Xbox Game Pass, we're interested to know if you think it's knocked any other BGS games off the #1 spot!

There's obviously a lot of competition here in the form of Skyrim, Oblivion, and multiple Fallout games, so it's not an easy decision! We're also well aware that it might take years with Starfield before you feel you can definitively rank it on the list, but at least based on what you've played so far, we're curious on your thoughts right now.

Finally, keep in mind that we're only talking about games that have been developed by Bethesda Game Studios here, so the likes of Fallout: New Vegas and The Elder Scrolls Online don't make the cut.

Let's take a look at the lineup:

The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind (2002)

Enter the world of Morrowind, a rich province of the Tamrielic Empire, filled with varied settlements and dominated by titanic mountains, vast cities and mysterious wastelands. Within this realm, you cast your destiny: become a noble knight on an epic quest or a trickster thief conniving his way toward leadership. Serve as a malevolent sorcerer or mystic healer, colonizer or outlander. Your actions determine the path you explore.

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (2006)

You live within the stunning capital province of Tamriel, called Cyrodiil. As a brave and noble warrior you set on a dangerous adventure, to find the hidden heir to a throne that sits empty, the previous emperor having been killed by an unknown assassin. With no true Emperor in place and no guidance for the people of Cyrodiil, the gates of Oblivion open, bringing only death and destruction upon the humble towns and villages.

Fallout 3 (2008)

Vault-Tec engineers have worked around the clock on an interactive reproduction of Wasteland life for you to enjoy from the comfort of your own vault. Included is an expansive world, unique combat, shockingly realistic visuals, tons of player choice, and an incredible cast of dynamic characters.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (2011)

Skyrim is the homeland of the Nords, a fierce and proud warrior people who are used to the bitter cold and mountanous terrain that mark the lands of Skyrim. Wracked by civil war, and threatened by the return of the legendary dragons, Skyrim faces its darkest hour. You must make sense of this maelstrom, explore the frozen tundra and bring hope to the people.

Fallout 4 (2015)

As the sole survivor of Vault 111, you enter a world destroyed by nuclear war. Every second is a fight for survival, and every choice is yours. Only you can rebuild and determine the fate of the Wasteland. Welcome home.

Fallout 76 (2018)

Play solo or join together as you explore, quest, build, and triumph against the wasteland’s greatest threats. Explore a vast wasteland, devastated by nuclear war, in this open-world multiplayer addition to the Fallout story. Experience the largest, most dynamic world ever created in the legendary Fallout universe.

Starfield (2023)

Starfield is the first new universe in over 25 years from Bethesda Game Studios, the award-winning creators of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Fallout 4. In this next generation role-playing game set amongst the stars, create any character you want and explore with unparalleled freedom as you embark on an epic journey to answer humanity’s greatest mystery.
