So, in my quest to defeat Alduin, I joined the College of Winterhold, defeated dragon priests, bought a house, worked a forge, and keep getting pulled into Daedric plots, not to mention collecting bounties, helping neighbors, and looting tombs for treasure. Still haven't defeated Alduin, 150+ hours in. It's a testament to this game that I'm looking forward to the next 150 hours. The only con I can think of is that the game can be expected to crash my XBox 360 at least a few times a week.

Where do I first start? As soon as I saw the trailer, I knew this will be my favorite Elder Scrolls in regards to the franchise. Many hours have been put within this game and I truly enjoyed the story, mechanics, etc. This game is surely endless filled with so much adventure to be played. I highly recommend it if you are a fan of the Elder Scrolls.

Got this game at launch and for some weird reason it stood unopened on my shelf. But recently I have put some major hours into this game. The level of imersion is amazing. This is imo one of the best games ever made on any console . It has a few flaws that annoy me such as repetitive dialouge from some npcs.. bad pathfinding by npcs (not always) but my main complaint is that is just so much to do in this game that it has taken so much of my time and im no where near complete. Great game.

Fun with some awesome graphics. The game has all the things you would expect from an RPG like character creation tools and potions. Add in many sides quests and a huge main story and you have Skyrim. But like all 3D RPGs there is some grinding and boredom in between major story scenes. All in all a step up from the last Elder Scrolls game, Oblivion.

There's a lot to do in this game and it's an impressive display of not only the Xbox 360's graphics and single-player gameplay but also the Elder Scrolls journey. It redefines what it means to be a collector in-game as you explore new realms looking for different shout powers, locations and hidden secrets. The tree perks are an extra bonus to make in-game abilities that much sweeter. And then let's not forget dragons. They are an exceptional feat for this game, integral to the story and a beauty to fight. However, I'm not without my reservations for this game. As with Oblivion while the story is neat, I did not find that it particularly gripped my interest at any point and simply having the ability to pause and scroll through a quick list of spells and weapons takes away from the feeling of really being in a fight. My first point about the story is what I'm really trying to stress; although there's a whole mass of content to absorb, none of it strikes me as particularly engaging. Other gamers may disagree with my sentiment, however, I can't say I ever sympathized with a character from an Elder Scrolls game, an element which, to me, is synonymous with replayability and more important than visual appeal. Yet, I won't detract stars from the game because it's clear how much effort went into making it look, play and sound beautiful.

I doubt there's much I could add to convince anyone to purchase and play this game. If you're a fan of RPG's and have never gotten into Elder Scrolls, I will recommend going back to the original Xbox game Morrowind and the Xbox 360 game Oblivion before playing this game. Just note that it will take you an extraordinarily long time to do this daunting task. That said, the rewards from a gaming stand point for doing so are tremendous indeed.

WOW. I did not think that I would like this game as much as I did. Believe it or not, this game actually exceeded the immense hype prior to its release. If you have played a previous Elder Scrolls game, Skyrim plays very similarly, but many of the more confusing, and honestly less useful, (acrobatics?) prospects of the previous games have been greatly streamlined. The combat in Skyrim being the most notable improvement, as weapons finally feel like they have their own weight. 100s of hours long.

This game is all around amazing! The graphics are the best I had seen when it came out. This game has the character leveling as well weapons down perfect. I played the hell out of Skyrim. The game has it's downsides.. Bugs are everywhere and has prevented me from completing purchased DLC. The main story is alright, it has a lot of annoying side quests that are summed up like this: walk for an eternity here, defeat enemies, recover item, walk an eternity back to the quest giver, turn in quest.

If you love open-world exploration and crafting of all sorts then this is an excellent game for you. And if your idea of 'immersion' is being able to interact with npc's and their societies - marriage, buy housing etc - then Skyrim may also be for you. The music is awesome as are the visual designs and graphics. However the storyline is not interesting, it is absent and forgettable for the most part. The same can be said about the characters. They are all rather generic and dull. An 'OK' game.

The Story is fantastic and it barley even scratches the surface of the world. A must play for RPG fans.

And I apologize for not actually submitting a review/score...NOOB mistake. It's a 5 out of 5 man.

I'm still playing this game since it's release...this game is actually the first and ONLY time I'll ever go to a midnight release. Oh and I wish Bethesda didn't abandon development of future DLC...it's a shame.

I'm STILL playing this game on my original character. STILL and it's not gotten boring at all. I don't know if there's anything else to say other than this game is just awesome.

As a long time fan I was greatly disappointment with Skyrim, but as a fanboy I loved it, the lack of clothing slots, spell creation, proper enchanting, and other great things that I loved to use as in game hacks from Morrowind are missing, no more levitation, cities we can just waltz in to (back when even if they had a huge wall around there was no stupid load time), and most importantly, the diversity in landscape.

holy shit skyrim- this is literally my favourite game of the generation. the whole game just... yes. i can't describe the experience- you need to buy this game, you need to experience this masterpiece.

Elder Scrolls V; Skyrim Dawnguard DLC offers an amazing story and much more. I highly enjoyed the ability of becoming a mighty Vampire Lord within the Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim; one of my all-time favorite games. Being a Vampire Lord grants one many powers such as raising the dead and many more. I didn't join the vampire hunters within the game; instead, I chose to become a vampire myself :)

"Surpasses the original." - sherberttcat

 Fatal Fury - Sega Genesis
"Compared to many bad fighting games on the Genesis.. Fatal Fury isn't all that bad. I've never played it in the arcade so I can't compare it. However, there is a sequel that is 10x better then this one. So I can only recommend this to collectors. It really sucks how there are only 3 characters to pick from in single player mode. The 3 characters play very well but it would have been nice to have more options. Skip this one and get Fatal Fury 2 which is my favorite fighting game on the Genesis :)" - Truxton4life
