The Elder Scrolls is arguably the best role-playing series ever, and with the Anthology you get all five games as well as all expansions, add-ons, and downloadable content for each of them.

It's an epic in every sense of the word: It ranged from a quest to assemble the Staff of Chaos in Arena (1994) to the struggle for control of the iron golem Numidium in Daggerfall (1996), then dealt with the reincarnation of the hero Nerevar in Morrowind (2002) breached the otherworldly portals of Oblivion (2006), and crowning it all with the epic battle against dragon-kind in Norse-themed Skyrim (2011).

The collector's set – a steal at only $90 – also includes physical maps detailing the environments of the five games and is all packaged together in a delightful booklet, with each game having its own spread.

It's worth noting that the earlier games haven't been remastered, but the quality of Bethesda's storytelling, and the vastness of the worlds they've created, transcend visual fidelity alone.
