Are there any other massive games that don't require me to be an Orc or a wizard?
Well, in Skyrim you can be a Breton, Nord, Argonian (lizard), Khajiit (cat), Bosmer (wood elf), Dunmer (dark elf), Altmer (high elf), Redguard, or Imperial.
You can play as anything, you could use a one handed sword mace or axe with a shield, or use 2 one handed weapons at once, or use a 2 handed great sword or warhammer or axe, use a one hander with a spell in the other hand, use a bow, be sneaky and use daggers to sneak up and assassinate people. Whatever.
Fallout 3 is pretty big, isn't it? From what I understand it's pretty much like an Elder Scrolls game except in a post apocalyptic DC with guns instead of magics.
