The next chapter in the highly anticipated Elder Scrolls saga arrives from the makers of the 2006 and 2008 Games of the Year, Bethesda Game Studios. Skyrim reimagines and revolutionizes the open-world fantasy epic, bringing to life a complete virtual world open for you to explore any way you choose.

The Empire of Tamriel is on the edge. The High King of Skyrim has been murdered. Alliances form as claims to the throne are made. In the midst of this conflict, a far more dangerous, ancient evil is awakened. Dragons, long lost to the passages of the Elder Scrolls, have returned to Tamriel. The future of Skyrim, even the Empire itself, hangs in the balance as they wait for the prophesized Dragonborn to come; a hero born with the power of The Voice, and the only one who can stand amongst the dragons.

Great game, with tons of content, even if you are not a fan of the previous elder scrolls games this one is great. Great main stories, characters, and tons of content where you can basically do whatever. Like some others have said there is tons of user mods and fixes, Bethesda makes great games but generally very glitchy, but the community is great and normally gets a fix for them quickly.

Seriously though, I've spent more time exploring Skyrim than almost any game I've ever played. Not only do you get fully immersed by Skyrim and all it has to offer, but this game is STILL backed by a huge and extremely talented modding community. I still am amazed at some mods that are still being created especially the big ones like Skywind and Beyond Skyrim. However please only buy the legendary edition. The dlcs are NOT worth $20 each. They are good but do not offer the same amount of gameplay as the base game yet are still the same price. By getting legendary you save a lot of money and definitely won't regret it. Either way this is a definite 10/10 and I hope the next ACTUAL Elder Scrolls game (cough cough ESO) impress me even more.

Good Gaming!

If you've played the other games in The Elder Scrolls series, then you'll be really happy to play Skyrim. It takes everything you loved doing in Oblivion, Morrowind, and expands the world into a massive land, teeming with an seemingly endless amount of quests and activities to do. It's one of those games that you'll find yourself playing for days on end once you get it, and when you do, you'll have many, many hours of Dragonslaying fun.

If you have a game bucket list this should be at the top. There is nothing wrong with Skyrim. It has everything an RPG fan loves. Fun quest lines, great factions and Dragons. If your a fan of Oblivion buy this game. Skyrim is for everyone.

The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim is one of the best game ever, not only because it belongs to a very old and successful franchise, but because in this game they improved every mechanics of the previous games (bugs apart) so that makes it perfect, a great story like always, but with new functions, differents environments, an excellent fight system, so, it's totally worth it!
