I have this problem. I don't like any other games other than Bethesda 1 player rpg's with the obvious exception of Fallout New Vegas.
I don't like multiplayer shooters. It's just not how I socialize. When I play games, it's because I want a break from real people.
Batman: Arkham City offered some enjoyment, but nowhere near Elder Scrolls or FO3/NV. I'm obviously done with B:AC, but I'll still go back to Bethesda games years later. L.A. Noir is an honorable mention as well as GTA 4. You see the pattern; open worlds. I dislike Red Dead Redemption for some reason.
So, if there are others out there that identify with my situation, what games have been able to tear you away from Skyrim? Is RAGE any good? I'm about to surrender to the fact that I'm extremely picky.

Look into Dragon's Dogma or The Witcher 2. --- Winter is coming

Sounds like you just aren't a gamer. Not bad to be a casual fan into only Open World games.

I hate when people mention New Vegas on this board.
It always gives me a very strong urge to go back to it. But I know that if I do, I won't play anything else for months. --- Saturday night is the loneliest night of the week. GT: Charon78

Borderlands might be a game you'd enjoy. --- Lemme just quote the late, great Colonel Sanders. He said, "I'm too drunk to taste this chicken."

Try Minecraft. It's great for single player and multiplayer. Very, very sandboxy. --- Sometimes I edit my sig so it continues whatever I was posting about.

I want to help you but you insulted my one true love, RDR.
In all seriousness though, the new Assassin's Creed looks like it is going to have more in terms of "open-worldness" than the previous installments, you might look into it. Everyone else has already mentioned the games I would suggest.
As for Rage, if you looking for a good open-world game, you're looking in the wrong place. It is a fairly decent shooter though. Driving is okay. --- Defy me, and you will know what it is to stand against a god.
