You will lose yourself

Skyrim is one of the most immersive virtual lands I've ever had the pleasure of exploring. From the people to the places, from the dragons to the insects, everything the player encounters reinforces the sense that this is a living, breathing world where anything is possible.

The degree of freedom the player is given is almost overwhelming. Once the prologue has ended, there aren't really any restrictions, and it's a vast land that's ripe for the explorin'. Everything in the game looks great, but you will occasionally stumble upon something truly magnificent; and the developers have done a fantastic job spreading these out enough to prevent the spectacle from growing stale.

Of course, the freedom is not just in where you go, but in who you are. With a wide range of races, skills, moral choices, and activities, you genuinely can forge for yourself a unique character, whose impact and feelings on Skyrim will differ to those of any other.

With a slew of content, including the three DLCs, you can be practically guaranteed never to run out of things to do, quests to fulfil, or places to explore. You will have the time of your life in Skyrim, and chance are you will spend a lot of your life in it.

Amazing

Skyrim is by far the best RPG game I have ever played. Great graphics, amazing gameplay and a superb storyline. If you haven't played it yet you really should, and this is easily the best edition to do it with as you get all the DLC included and while Hearthfire doesn't really add much, the other two really add to the overall experience, so they are definitely worth getting. All I'd add is that if you are choosing between the PC version or the xbox edition, get it on PC as with all Bethesda games there is a huge modding community that can add a great deal of extra content to the game for free.
