"A vast and gorgeous world of exciting possibilities, fascinating places, engrossing adventures and flying lizards." - PCGamer.com


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.

Oh Man Oh Man

Skyrim is a fantastic game. I had never played other Elder Scrolls before Skyrim, but after playing Fallout 3 for countless hours a friend suggested I try it. I actually became completely incapable of doing anything productive for at least two weeks because I was so sucked into the world of the game. Especially on PC with mods it is gorgeous, the gameplay is well-thought out and easy to get used to, and the story is just hands-down fantastic. My only criticism would be that some people you talk to seem to be added in just to be a random person that's there to make it seem like everything has more meaning. For example, none of the guards really have personalities worth mentioning, outside of the well-known "arrow to the knee" joke. Get the Legendary edition, as all the DLC adds so much more time and is absolutely fantastic. I am on my second playthrough and I'm doubtful I will ever truly finish this game.

Great game!

Skyrim is one of my favorite games. It has a really good storyline and a lot of fun sidequests. Sometimes quests are a lot like some others but the game never gets boring. It has a beautifull landscape and awesome soundtracks at the right moment. Really like the soundtrack when a dragon appears. There's also lot of choise in this game. You can kind of create your own story. Really recommend this. You wont regret it.

Skyrim

Skyrim has been a great game. I got it on steam, and I have to say it was an absolutely amazing choice. As part of the elder scrolls series, It had quite a name to live up to. But it did this quite nicely. One disappointing thing was how the helmet you always see is just a basic iron helmet. Quite frankly it is one of the worse items in the game. But still, great game.

Huge, Interesting World, Great Story, Decent Game

I do really enjoy Skyrim. The world is huge, awesome, and beautiful, even in 2015. The snowy mountains, the towns, and even the rivers look spectacular. Skyrim also has the coolest story of any game in the series. Basically taking part in a Civil War, then working your way up to fight the King of Dragons in Viking Heaven is something I'll never forget and it alone is worth the asking price. The actual gameplay isn't all that great. The spell system and controls are greatly improved from Oblivion, and the many way you can play keeps the game fresh. However, it's still nothing extremely satisfying. Also, the side quests are, for the most part, very tedious and uninspired. Though there are a few exceptions to that. It's a huge game with an amazing world to explore and a very fun campaign that you can easily sink hundreds of hours into. Don't even get me started on the mods.

One of the best RPGs but could be better.

First off, let me tell you that you should be set off by my 85 mark. To be honest, story-wise Skyrim is fantastic. But I had to give it a low mark because for me, as an action gamer fan, the fact that you have to literally pause the game in mid-air to do anything (eat, use potions, plan your next move, etc.) is a no-no. The game is superb, the quests are diverse and the gameplay options are quite ample. A must-play for any RPG-genre lover.
