I LOVE Skyrim. There is something magical about being in a first-person mode. I am looking for other games that are first-person but are not gun-shooting games.

I particularly like fantasy themes with sword-swinging, dungeon-crawling, and using a bow.

The platform (console, PC, iPad) does not matter.

Please add your suggestions!

You don't see the sword swing but you do travel through the dungeon in first-person.

Oh, if only you had a gun...shake

(There are a HUGE number of first-person horror games, most of which never provide you with any weapons at all...)

I prefer third person games, but this series is very good. There is some shooting, but it's mostly exploration + platforming.

There are very few moments in this game where picking up a gun and shooting is the ideal thing to do. It's mostly a parkour/puzzle game with the occasional confrontation that is usually best handled with martial arts and speed. There was one part of the game (in an underground parking garage) that I resorted to gun play, otherwise I played this exclusively as non shooter.

Let the controversy begin

Dear Esther is about exploring an island, with occasional voice-overs explaining your reason for being here.

This one is also about exploring an island. No narration, just walk around and enjoy the sights.

Proteus and Dear Esther are well-made and interesting, but contain few (even none according to haters) gameplay.

Kairo is a first-person puzzle game in which you explore alien landscapes and bizarre architectures. I only played the demo so far but I enjoyed what I saw.

All three games in the Thief series. You've got a bow and arrows, but they're mainly used for various utilities on the arrows (such as rope arrows which can be used for climbing, or water arrows to put out torches), and you've got a sword, but engaging in straight-up combat is suicidal generally; the emphasis is on sneaking around and avoiding confrontation.

and its direct sequel, though not the "spiritual successors" of the Bio- variety, as those tend to venture into fairly direct shooter realm. And while System Shock can be played as a kind of shooter if that's what you want, it's also possible to be a sneaky hacker or the like. I know that when I played it, I tended to avoid direct conflict and play this as an exploration game.

I guess that given the time when it came out, I kind of thought of it as Ultima Underworld set in space, and to some extent that is true. But the series did some pretty novel things with first person gaming in their own right.

I have to admit to having not yet played this. It's in my backlog. I have played and very much enjoyed Deus Ex: Human Revolution, and from what I am told the original provides even more flexibility as to how to play. And I definitely didn't play Human Revolution like a shooter at all.

One of Troika Games' masterpieces, flawed at first (the publisher sabotaged the release and the game was published with a number of showstopping bugs) but substantially improved by patches.

You can use guns in this one if you want to, but why bother when you have a whole arsenal of vampiric powers to draw from?

This game takes place in a world that has kind of a steampunk feel. You play as bodyguard who is framed for something he didn't do. There are guns in this game but you don't have to use them. You can play more of a stealth style and/or use swords and powers.

This is a first person fantasy RPG for the Nintendo 3DS. There were also three Etrian Odyssey games for the Nintendo DS. They're know for being somewhat difficult RPGs. You have to draw maps of the world on the 3DS/DS touchscreen too. I have played a little of a couple of these games and IV seems a little more approachable than the earlier games. I think there's a remake of the original Etrian Odyssey coming out for the 3DS later this year with a gameplay mode for people who are new to the series.

This is a very short downloadable game for the Nintendo 3DS. It has a sci-fi setting and is kind of a survival horror/adventure game.

You're stricken by a strange disease, and your only hope lies on an island (yes, again) where researchers are working on a cure. You set sail for the island, only to discover that the researchers have disappeared (or worse), and there's a presence stalking you.

I haven't played it thoroughly yet, but I like what I've seen so far: there's a big emphasis on exploration and survival (you need to find landmarks to trigger the game's automapping, water and shelter is important), some crafting (you have to collect and research plants and fungus to create medicine), a mystery to solve (what happened to the researchers?) and a lot of sneaking about to avoid the creature chasing you.

It's also quite gorgeous (especially for a game made by two persons).
