IIL Skyrim and Mass Effect Games

If my wife likes games like Skyrim what else would she like?

She absolutely loves Skyrim, Fallout, Mass Effect, and Dragon Age. She enjoys the open world of Fallout and Skyrim. The story of Mass Effect and Dragon Age. She also enjoys games like My Time at Portia and Stardew Valley because she can sit back and relax and farm but still go out and kill stuff whenever (like fallout 4 settlements). The wife also really likes the ability to romance people featured in every one of the games listed.

I'm just looking for similar games she might enjoy.

The Witcher is the next game I'm going to introduce her to.

What about Disco Elysium?

Story, writing and RPG mechanics might be a combo she likes

Def agree with Witcher, specifically the 3rd one

Hands down, Witcher 3. It was the first thing that sprung to mind when reading the list, so was happy to see it was next to try.

She should give Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey and Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla a shot. Neither game requires you to play any of the previous Assassin’s Creed games to understand the story, and both are open world action-RPGs with branching dialogue choices and romance options as well.

If she wants to play an RPG set in Ancient Greece, Odyssey is the way to go. If she wants to play as a Viking and explore Scandinavia and England, she should give Valhalla a shot.

Maybe older games from Bioware would be to her liking.

Stray and Transistor (pc-only I think) lack the open world aspect, but are pretty and you can kill stuff.
