Skyrim is not far off from FPS, much more so than the previous titles in the series. In previous ES games, you had a sort of dice roll to determine a lot of things, in Skyrim it's real time action. For example, in Morrowind you could miss repeatedly at point blank range swinging a sword at low levels because it calculated hits based on a chance to hit formula. In Skyrim, you swing your sword or shoot a bow/magic and hit what you're aiming at with hit detection similar to a FPS. Damage is still calculated, but whether or not you hit something is player skill.
It's first person sword and sorcery. A bit more complex than the average FPS, but similar in a lot of respects. For a FPS fan it's the RPG I'd recommend second. Fallout 3 is the only title I'd recommend more for a FPS fan to RPG with. Both are great games, but Fallout is likely to be more familiar and easier to start out with for a FPS gamer. I'd suggest getting into Skyrim after playing through Fallout 3 as it'll get you used to dealing with the similar RPG elements in a game that has gameplay that is much more similar to a FPS game. [In fact, the first time I played through Fallout 3, I played it as a FPS title and ignored a lot of the RPG elements.]
Also, be aware it takes quite a machine to make Skyrim look like it does in those screens. Plus, I've got it modded quite a bit. It'll look awesome and far, far better than the consoles on any decent gaming PC. You should have no trouble with Ultra settings if you're running Bioshock maxed out. Check my specs and you'll see what I mean. Even with 3 Radeon HD 7970s I run it in 3D and get about 45-55 fps, 2d hovers at a little under 60.
If you get Fallout 3 and/or Skyrim, I recommend playing through vanilla at least once, and then go nuts modding it. Seriously, Bethesda has one of the most extensive modding communities in existence. You'd be amazed what you can do with their games. Not even Minecraft can compete with it, and it's simply awesome that you can play them so many times and never have the same experience twice.
Skyrim and Fallout are the kinds of games that can keep you playing for years if you get into them. [Not necessarily continuously, but I dig up Morrowind to mod up and play on occasion even to this day.]

Here are a couple.
1/ Me killing the baddie at the end of SoF 1 (just love that game!).
2/ Me wrecking badly at Embesos in the original Colin McRae Rally (and I still won the stage
and the game!!).
3/ 'Where the 'flock' did that bloody 'plane come from??' NFS Underground 2.
I'm usually too busy playing to bother to take screenshots.
I do have a few more, tho.
