There is no competition for the elder scrolls games, because they're in a league of their own. It is a masterpiece series. Well things like factions could be fleshed out a little bit better as time has gone on, still the ruler comes exploration and more importantly, lore. If you want to immerse yourself in a game world mythology, religion, and culture, Elder scrolls is the way to go. That said, the series is gotten stronger and ironically weaker at the same time in different ways, but still I don't think they have a true competitor. Part of that success has to do with the world editor, and the ability to literally do anything you want through that. No other the game offers that experience.

Two worlds I would say is the closest, with Gothic. Two worlds more for the exploration, Gothic more when it comes to the great lore as well. I am curious tho, if Gothic or two worlds had the same editor functionality, what that effect would be in the long run?
