5 Best Offline PC Games You Can Play Without Using The Internet
#3 The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
If you aren't aware of the anticipated 2011 title known as Skyrim, you must have had a really busy year that year...and all years following it. Bethesda introduced the province of Skyrim to players nearly eight years ago, thrusting them onto the continent of Tamriel as the land is suddenly overtaken by dragons.
Eventually, you find out that you are the Dragonborn, and are able to absorb the souls of dragons in order to learn powerful spells known as "shouts." With this ability, you are tasked with taking on the almighty Alduin the World-Eater before he can destroy the world.
Skyrim takes place about two centuries after the events of Oblivion and features an incredibly open gameplay experience. By that I mean, you can do whatever you want whenever you want. Nothing is cut off due to levelling, and you can enter any dungeon or any quest at any moment as long as you have whatever key is necessary to enter them if a key is even necessary.
Whether you choose to take on foes up close and personal with a sword or hammer, hide back from plain sight with a poison-tipped bow, or send all your enemies to kingdom come with the magical powers of the gods, you'll find combat here that will suit your needs.
The success of TES V: Skyrim has been so overwhelming that it's become a running joke at this point, with Bethesda players "afraid" that if they buy another game from the developer, it'll just be Skyrim in disguise. However, it's easy to see why they would continuously release the game over the years. With updated graphics and smoothed out frame rate, players on any device want to have this treasure in their collection.
