The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
This game will always be one of my favorites.
I have had this game for 7 months now and I have played this game many times. I have had the perfect experience since 99.825% of the glitches have been fixed and the patches always add something ne, even a new difficulty setting (LEGENDARY). I have gotten the DLC and, to this day, continue on my quests to: find the best companion to be by my side in battle, learn new magic and spell combinations, tackle the LEGENDARY difficulty, collect all dragon shouts, and MUCH MUCH MORE!!! Most characters are interesting, though not complex, and most quests are great , heck there are some that can go on forever. There have been very few quests that I would ignore or find boring. This is a game you would never complete ( being there are quests that literally go on forever by recycling same characters, place, etc.), but it's the type of game you can continue anytime. This is why Skyrim is one of my favorite games and, in my own opinion, one of the best open world games on the console (excluding MMORPG's).
AWESOME, my first elder scrolls game was the one released prior to this one (oblivion), and i loved it. so naturally i bought skyrim the day it came out, i took it home and was blown away by everything the game had to offer. Its been 2 years since it was released and i still play skyrim 3 or 4 times a week. This game will appeal to a wide variety of gamers like, casual gamers, hardcore gamers, and even beginners will love this game. Skyrim is by far my favorite game of all time. The only complaint i have against this game is its's addicting qualities. WARNING: If you are still in school, whether it be high school, college or middle school, you will notice a fall in your grades.
Pretty, but gets boring
I got this game the week it came out. I've played other Elderscroll Games in the past (Morrowind was my favorite) and this one was okay. It was better than Oblivion for sure. The graphics are really nice as well as the sound. The story seemed interesting at first, but it was too short for my liking. The DLCs as well. This game had some pretty repetitive quests and were rather boring. The factions and guild quests were pretty short as well. I rarely play it now, and only do when I want to mess around. The world that they gave you felt like a pretty face without a personality. This game doesn't leave a long lasting appeal to it and once you beat the main story line and all the guilds and factions it's pretty boring. Overall the game was alright.
Skyrim is an incredible game. From the highest mountain tops to the expansive valleys, the world of skyrim is huge, diverse, and fun to explore. Furthermore, the amount of places to discover and quests to complete is large, but some can get repetitive, especially misc quests. People claim to beat all the quests on one character and say the game has nothing more to offer, I beg to differ. Create a character with a different play style than the first one and you will find unique ways to beating the game, breathing new life into the same quests. Creating your own play style is probably the best feature skyrim has to offer. From sword and shield, to fire and conjuration spells, there is endless replay ability. I am still playing skyrim today, long after its release. Not to mention the DLC's add new quest lines that will offer many more hours of gameplay! There are some graphical glitches, texture pop is one but they are infrequent and minor. All around amazing graphics for a game of its size. Sound is good, the soundtrack is immersive but characters use the same voice. Gameplay is stupendous, the variety is fun and random in counters are always interesting to stumble upon as you journey. Fighting has a good feel to it in first person. The variety in skills is always fun to experiment with, smithing is especially helpful on your journey. Overall I am still impressed with skyrim and will continue to play it.
This has no muiltplayer. The graphics are good. it is fun.... if you want to spend your life one it. Just the slightest wrong move and bam! There goes you account. Soo if you do want it think before you act.
i love it so much im spech less i like to play it all the time i dont know what els to write its soo cool
One of the worst RPGs ever.
Ever since this game came out I was always so perplexed by every one saying that this game was amazing. 80% of the game is just drab snow covered mountains or forests. Sure, sometimes you'll think, "wow this game sure is pretty", but that's all it really has to offer. | The gameplay is extremely boring, nothing like everyone says it is, the Dragons are pretty neat the first couple of times you encounter them, but after that they are the most annoying things ever. You can't fast travel to a town without having one spawn. | Speaking of fast traveling, it takes sometimes near 2 minutes to load sometimes. | The storyline of Skyrim could have been so much better, but it's pretty simple. The world is pretty large, which isn't always a good thing. Whenever you have to walk great distances to get somewhere, you will get extremely bored because of the lack of detail in the world. Graphics don't make a game good, and it shouldn't even be mentioned as a strong point of this game. | The items/weapons/armor in the game are terrible, not so much of design, but the sheer lack of them. You can craft all of the armor in easily an hour, same with weapons, and after that there's almost zero point in exploring anything, because it's not like you're going to find some epic armor or weapon, you would have already had them. | The leveling up mechanism and questing system is pretty standard RPG, even though the side quests are so boring and last forever, there is almost an unlimited amount of things to do in this game, which isn't a good thing in this case, because actually beating the game and everything can be pretty satisfying for some people, but Skyrim, just never ends. | Overall, if you like very slow gameplay, combat, basically everything the game has to throw at you, and drab/bland not very detailed scenery, then this game is perfect for you.
Top 5 of my favorite PS3 games!
If you like open world games with alot to do. Skyrim is for you. Even after beating the main story there is a ton to do, Loads of side quests, you can buy houses and customize the interior of your home. You can play through all of the guilds and explore Skyrim for dragons, weapons and armor, books and whatever else you find fun.
think about it
i honestly do NOT know why this game got so many awards! i do not see why this game is even worth playing. i have played other rpg games and they have a better story and EVERYTHING. i personally reccomend mass effect 3 because u can still get the game without having to play the previous games so the story is not confusing.
Elder Scrolls is awesome
This game is amazing though after you play through it thoroughly once its boring to play a second time. Hope you enjoy the game. I encourage all of you to buy skyrim. Other great games are red dead redemption, gta 4, Oblivion, Call of duty black ops 1 and 2. MW3, MW2, BF3, FC3, AC3, AC BROTHERHOOD, and infamous. Try border land s too. hope this review helped and have a good day. Thanks for reading guys.
