Action Role-Playing video games (also known as RPG or ARPG) are a subgenre of role-playing video games that tend to focus on action and fighting instead of level progressing and planning. Action RPG often incorporates various elements from action games and even from action-adventure games. Big part of this genre are also so-called “Diablo clones” or hack & slash games.
The typical action RPG focuses mainly on combat, at the cost of simplifying (or removing) all non-combat attributes and statistics. Additionally, combat always takes place in the real-time system and relies on the player's ability to perform particular actions with optimal speed and accuracy. All top action RPGs tend to focus more on the collection of randomized treasure (or loot) than story progression that is found in other types of role-playing games.

The Elder Scrolls are typical role-playing games, although they often include various elements from action and even adventure games. Daggerfall, Morrowind, Oblivion, and Skyrim are all focused on creating and developing a playable character. Every TES game has a skill system and the more a certain skill is leveled, the more it helps to level the character.
The world itself can be described as one of high fantasy with multiple influences from different cultures. Many races exist in the world of The Elder Scrolls, both typical for high fantasy (humans, orcs, and elves) and new (lizard-like Argonians, who are lizard-like and cat-like Khajiit). There is also magic, mythical creatures (dragons), various powerful factions (Mages Guild, Dark Brotherhood, etc.), cities, strongholds, and plot elements driven by legends and prophecies.
