Elder Scrolls: Oblivion
Elder Scrolls was first introduced as a small-scale RPG game in 2002 with the launch of Morrowind. In Oblivion, however, the developers went full-scale including the whole nation of Cyrodiil. With whole means every nook and cranny of Cyrodiil were placed in detail. Oblivion was the first open-world RPG and the first fully voiced NPCs.
