The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
I've been waiting for the new TES game since Oblvion came out. Oblivion was quite a jump from Morrowind technologically speaking. Now in Skyrim they have a new game engine. The caste system has been scrapped. So now you just level up different skills like destruction magic, light armor, hand to hand, etc. This way your not limited to your classes like in Oblivion. This I look forward to. Also the PC version will have a Creation Engine and a Creation Kit which comes w/ the PC version of the game, so you can create mods. The video from E3 seems promising. I look forward to it. 11.11.11 isn't far off.
Significant Moment in Video Game History
The Elder Scrolls series makes another play into the RPG battlefield and Bethesda has very much delivered. I wasn't a major fan of Oblivion, but I was of Fallout 3 and let me tell you, if you did not like either of these games, you should really give Skyrim a chance as just about any RPG will have an absolute blast playing this game. The expansive and in-depth world of Skyrim in collaboration with the new engine and Radiant Story technology has this very unique way of pulling you into the world. Throughout my already 40+ hours logged onto the game, I have found the experience to very enjoyable without the "grinding" that was present in Fallout 3 and Oblivion, which is one of the overall motivating factors of the game. There is nothing that can be compared to this game, it's just so different and far more immersive than anything I have ever played and I don't mean RPGs, but games in general. If you have not played this game, I strongly suggest you go out and get your hands on a copy.
Must have for any RPG fan
I have managed to get 8 hrs in and so far this game is great. I am running this with a core2quad q9300 with 4gb ddr3 1333mhz and a gtx 460 768mb. I am running it on ultra high at between 32 and 42 fps. The story and immersion are second to none, I really feel part of this world without any mods as needed by other bethsoft games of recent times. This does use ALL FOUR of my cpu cores equaly but easy on my vram and ram. If you like rpg's that this is for you. The new interface may need a little work but after an hour of play I am at home with it. The only thing I noticed so far is the sound is very low, as in I had to turn my Bose speakers all the way up to hear voice witch I am sure will be fixed soon. The conten added to this over other title in series is mind boggleing and I am finding more all the time. Crafting your own weapons and armor, cooking your food and mining and cutting wood are implamented nicely. Pcik this up today, you will not regret it!!!
all you'll ever need
Lets just start out by saying it done way better than the other pc rpg releases as of late. The game itself was a new stepping stone which took elder scroll gamer's to a more detailed break down of the whole series. I mean yes it gave lost history that left people wondering " what was the point of reading this book?" It had a break down that was specific for the readers and non readers as well as experience no one has ever faced in previous elder scroll games. Yes you have new enemies to face and excellent puzzles. What the main problem people cant be satisfied with any game that comes out to their tastes when makers of this great game took time to think of you "the gamer" to enlighten you with something that could possible keep you occupied for a long while. Now if your the type to whine and cry cause a game isn't to your liking feel free to invest and make your own game. but I personally appreciate the hard work that was put into this game which will leave me curious of whats in store for me when the online version is released. so all in all I say this game has 2 thumbs up from me, because diablo 3 is still lingering in the toilet.
best game ever
this game was very thrilling all the way through. It also automatically comes with mods which is nice. the main questline is well built. Even the guild questlines were amazing. the best was probably the thieves guild. The dark brotherhood was very fun. the civil war questline has two sides. the stormcloaks are a better choice then the imperials if you ask me. Overall, this game is amazing
Dragons and graphics and Violence! Oh my!
Dragons!? Graphics?! VIOLENCE?!?! This could only be TES: V Skyrim! The Elder Scrolls is and will always be the best RPG series out there. I have played from Daggerfall to Oblivion and have been addicted to it. Cannot WAIT!!
straightening a couple things out
I read through a lot of comments here and noticed A LOT of blatantly ignorant people spewing there opinions, first of all bethesda created an entirely new engine for this game. Second, there has been massive improvement to graphics, sound, and the gameplay, so much that the game is entirely the players to control and travel anywhere anytime without restriction. You have to actually use your weapons and abilities to level them up. Old favorites are back, like duel wielding, all of the previous groups i.e. dark brotherhood, magicians guild, etc.
Loved Oblivion,Gonna love this!
I wasn't introduced to the Elder-scrolls until Oblivion, but I have now played both games. The fun of Morrowind was in the large map and environmental variety ( swamps, caves...). I loved the variety of NPC stories and interactions in Oblivion. I hope to see more of that here, let's just hope they hired more voice actors!
I hope Skyrim will bring the strengths of the past games together. Also...
I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE THE DRAGONS!
I recommend getting the PC version if possible. If they're something you think would be awesome, chances are someones else does too and has or will make a mod!
Iv been a fan of the series since morrowind on the original xbox and Oblivion was my second life but the ability to fight dragons is like on such an epic scale you all dont even know the feeling. Imagine the rush of fighting a dragon. if they offer us the ability to use them as mounts for traveling in the air, that alone would be worth buying. Modding community, prepare yourselves!
if you compared this game to oblivion elder scrolls, oblivion looks like it was made in the 90's. Skyrim is the most exciting, fun, and best game i have/will play. you can never stop playing. i would recomend this to anybody, the graphics are terrific! this game should cost more money of how good it is. it's smart, funny and awesome!!!!
