BEST rpg game, so much to explore!Phas0077 | Aug. 8, 2012 | Review of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (NA)
This is actually my first rpg game and I absolutely love it! There are SOOOO many sidequests so it is impossible to get bored! I love the massive amount of customization you can do with your character as well as the wide variety range of weapons to choose. Another great thing that makes Skyrim ahead of the competition is MODS!!! The fact that the steam workshop lets you download (it's called the "subscribe" feature, but it's the same thing overall) a plethora of mods gives this game more replay value on the PC! Bethesda really knows their PC customers when they allow mods. Heck most games today rarely allow mod support for their games, which in my opinion, severely cuts down the replay value of the game if it is an rpg. When it comes to Bethesda's games, you can be sure to have a high quality title in your hands when you buy any of their rpg games. Fallout 3, for example, was game of the year in 2008. Oblivion for PC was also very well received at the time of release.
While mods are great and all, dlcs also add in more fun too (and hey, at least you'll know that the developers haven't given up on this great game and are adding in more content) so buy them (like Dawnguard, which is out now at the time I am writing this) to get an even more richer experience of the game, especially when you have finished the game (and believe me, it will take up a great deal of your time to finish this game considering there are 100+ side quests to do).
Overall, Skyrim for me receives a 100.
Now go slay some dragons! Fus Ro Dah!!!!
