The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Collector's Edition
my favorite game is skyrim i have it on Xbox360 and loved it so i am getting the CE of Skyrim on PC in a few days + its a lot cheaper now
Skyrim is without a doubt Bethseda's BEST work to date. It seems the developers have taken the best aspects of Fallout 3 and Oblivion and combined them into one brilliant masterpiece that is Skyrim. The world around you feels authentic with the wildlife roaming around randomly, every leaf and blade of grass moving in the direction of the blowing wind, the NPCs, unique in there personalities, etc. And the combat system has been much improved since Oblivion along with the animation (i.e jumping, running side ways no longer looks awkward)!. I've only spent 10 hrs in, but I can already see aleast 300+ hours of exploring and questing ahead. This game is a must for any hardcore RPG fan that enjoys an open world environment and exploration!!!
Out of all of the video games that are available for someone to play, there is one that sticks out above the rest and that is “Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim”. It has a solid plot, character development, beautiful landscapes and scenery, and character detail. These descriptors may be small in number but, by no means, does it take away from the value of the game.
You start the game off with a short cinematic to introduce one or two of the main characters of the future conflicts of the game. After the brief sequence you are provided the opportunity to pick the race your character will portray. There are several to pick from and even more involved is the ability to edit such minor details of the characters facial features. This allows you to customize your character in near a limitless number of ways. At points in the game you are able to contract the disease that leads to Lycanthrope and Vampirism meaning that you will eventually be able to become a Werewolf or a Vampire. There are caveats to these bonuses however. There are certain restrictions in the game that prevent you from doing some of the more unscrupulous acts, like murdering a child or an important person in the game (unless part of the mission you are on). . These are just a few of the negatives and even fewer of the perks of this game. There are far too many to list.
This piece provides the people who play an “escape” from the confines of reality. The hyper-realism of the game allows people to completely immerse themselves into the game and feel as if they are an integral piece of the story line. This game has been rated by many different organizations as a potential for Game of the Year and has earned a 10 out of 10. The game may not be suitable for small children as it includes a large amount of violence and other vices that children should not be exposed to. This masterpiece is intended for mature players who have the ability to distinguish fantasy from real life.
Best Elder Scrolls
I haven't played Morrowind, so ease off on that one.
Pros: The graphics are purely epic, with a few minor tweaks here and there.
+ Sound is INCREDIBLE.
+ AI is a lot better this time around.
+ 3rd person animations are MUCH better.
+ Dual wielding is a MAJOR PLUS.
+ Crafting weapons, armor, alchemy, and enchantments on armor and weapons. (Not sure if they kept in making your own spells from Oblivion though. Just got it today!)
+ Dragon AI is INCREDIBLE.
+ I remember from Oblivion that there weren't that many sound actors. There are a whole bunch NOW! No more hearing every single race sounding the same!!
+ The voice actors fit the part. The whole environment is extremely convincing and I felt like I was there.
+ Art book is incredible. The detail, artistry, and beauty of it all is overwhelming. It also gives background info on some of the locations that are displayed like the main towns and general places that you encounter on your journey. The book also is LITERALLY, a BOOK. It has the look, feel, and I bet if you smelled or tasted it, it would smell/taste like one too. (Yeah, I'm a bit goofy.)
+ Documentary DVD is a MUST for any Bethesda fanboy/girl.
+ The dragon figurine and wall are intensely detailed. It seriously looks like it JUST came out of the game.
- I really dislike when you're walking and you turn, your player somewhat snaps into that direction irregularly.. But it has a fine transition while running, I don't get why it snaps while walking. Probably a mod will come out later on for it.
- I've encountered a rare glitch with the water. Keep in mind, I HAVE MADE CHANGES TO MY INI FILE. (The .ini file holds the settings for things like Depth Of Field (DOF) for grass, trees, shadows, etc.)
- A few sound actors sounded a bit young like they didn't fit there, but then again, you have range of actors too.
- Don't look at the shadows too closely or they'll look a bit cube-ish...
GET THIS GAME. You will NOT be disappointing! The art book, documentary DVD, and 12" tall figurine are a MUST for any Bethesda fan. It is also just incredible to have! I have the dragon towering over my little Vault-tec bobblehead guy and I absolutely love it.
Bethesda put so much effort, care, AND LOVE into this game. I think it's worth the 150 pricetag.
I am soooo excited for this game! i will be counting down till midnight!
This is gonna be awesome
I decided on the spot when i picked up my BF3 limited edition pre order to go ahead and pre pay off skyrim collectors edition. I CANT WAIT ANY MORE
For one, on the PC, you can have far superior graphics. Also, you get the abality to mod the game in numerous ways. Finally, after you beat the game, it is fun to cranck up the difficulty all the way and hit ` (above tab key) to open up a console to input some VERY interesting cheats,
Is it worth $149.99?
Personally I think it's worth it because if you look up some of the PVC statues of similar size and detail available on the web they go for around 100$. Also full size 200 page, hardcover art books go for about 50$. Not to mention Bethesda has stated that the CE will be extremely limited so it will one day be worth more than today's asking price.
Game = 60$
Art Book = 50$
Statue = 100$
DVD = 20$
Total value = 230$
PC for Me
I own all 3 systems which this game can be played, but I'll buy the PC version. Of course the visuals should be better, but the history of Bethesda is one of releasing games that are full of game breaking bugs, these can sometimes be easier to avoid or bypass on the PC and Steam has a history of delivering patches quickly, which is what you want when a game is broken.
If you doubt the above, then it's clear you did not buy Daggerfall upon release, a game that took over 2 months to patch to playable.
I'm hoping for the best, but will not be surprised if I see problems.

I can not wait for Skyrim. This game, as with it's prequels, will be the game of the year. The storyline looks great, graphics look amazing, the E3 preview showed how much more smooth movement and combat have gotten...and the unscripted dragons....that will be astonishing. 2 months and 11 days...can not wait. __________ @Alildevil The map comes with all versions of the game, at least from GS when you pre-order.
