Skyrim and Oblivion, fantasy role-playing games, part of James Holmes inventory
We've got the complete list below. But among the more interesting items are three video games, none of which are the sort of realistic first-person shooter games most people (including those eager to blame actual tragedy on pop culture) probably expected.
Two of the games are part of the Elder Scrolls series. Here's the Wikipedia description of its setting:
The Elder Scrolls world can be described as one of high fantasy with medieval, roman and Nordic influences. Like most works of high or epic fantasy, the Elder Scrolls games are typically serious in tone and epic in scope, dealing with themes of grand struggle against a supernatural or evil force. Other characteristics typical of high fantasy fiction are common themes in the Elder Scrolls, such as demi-human races including elves, orcs and dwarves (a now-extinct race known as Dwemer), magic and sorcery, mythical creatures, factions with their own political agendas, walled medieval cities and strongholds, and plot elements driven by prophecies and legends. In accordance with many literary high fantasy works, the world of The Elder Scrolls is known for its attention to detail including well developed lore and back story. This includes a vast amount of information such as names, dates, and places that constitute its history and the interconnected structure of its various societies, cultures, and religions. Lore including histories and legends are contained in dozens of readable in-game books that are scattered throughout the game world.The first of the games Holmes owned was Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.
