About this game
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.

What makes a good game? The graphics? The story? The combat? Character models? Skyrim is a testimony that non the above matters if your journey feels exceptional.
Skyrim wasn't just another RPG, it pretty much defined what modern RPG should be. Skyrim though lacking a good story mesmerized you with beautiful world to explore. The exploration, the mystery of what lies in that dungeon made me hooked into the world and it never let go. The loot in this game was done perfect, it always made you check for random chest for something. The combat for its time felt decent. The crafting, enchanting was made great. You always felt making your was better. Some the story lines and quests were sublime. Dawn guard and daedric quests comes to mind. There were a lot of Easter eggs which can be found when some serious searching is done.
People who didn't experience Skyrim back in the day wouldn't have the same feeling. There were a lot of games that copied Skyrim methods and some were forced to create better games to feel relevant. Sure there are better games now but it was the impact Skyrim created that they came to be.
Skyrim is a masterpiece, I had so much fun experiencing it. Try it for yourself.
There is so so much to do. You can easily overlook its minor faults and sink in hundreds of hours.
very good game
