The Elder Scrolls series has made an indelible mark on gaming history, right from the first title in the franchise. Whether it's due to the free-form combat, huge worlds or the amazing technology behind it, the series constantly appears on "best game of all time" lists.
The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion continued the tradition of generation-defining visuals, huge worlds and innovative combat. But it also succeeded in making the game world much more vibrant thanks to the Radiant AI system, with non-player characters all going about their routine.
So, topping Oblivion was no easy task for Bethesda Softworks.
