this is quite possibly one of the worst fucking game's I've seen in my entire goddam life. Whoever made this needs to suffer a perishingly bleak fate frfr 😔
Great additions to combat, a streamlined altough a bit too simple level system and a great world to explore

Skyrim is a one of a kind roleplaying game where focusing on a class builds up your skills and your path, but with the free will to choose and change other stuff to try and play. Slaying dragons could not get any better. Not to mention the crazy NPCs. But above all, it is the huge open world that is offered what is the most crazy about Skyrim, that is fully open for exploration, full of wilderness, and dangers.

Possibly the best game I've played so far, and it's been more than 10 years since its release. Plot, graphics, soundtrack, gameplay and open world. Each genre of this game complements each other and they end up creating a masterpiece. PS: Greybeards are the best.

I don't think I need to explain this review.

What a universe.

After playing this game on my Xbox One in 2017 - or something like that, I had to give it another try, since I rushed it a little bit to move to another game asap, leaving those amazing sidequests untouched. Said and done. I played some questlines, like the College of Winterhold. Also, I completed two DLCs. Only after that, I completed the main story. And I have to say... I miss that kind of feeling in modern gaming.

At Skyrim, you have freedom. You can be whatever you want, choose your quests, dive deep into the lore and that universe slowly becomes more and more real. The characters were amazing equally.

The only thing Skyrim is arguably bad about is the gameplay. Yes, you have a lot of choices, but it`s not fluid as should be. But I`m confident that the next game will fix this.

One more thing: I believe the visuals of this game are criminally underrated. In 4k, on a good tv, it looks truly amazing.

Sep 18, 2022, played in Master difficulty mostly.

I mean, it's Skyrim - so engrossing, so addictive, so janky. Glad I actually managed to complete the game this time around, and I really enjoyed the additional challenge and complexity of playing as a mage - although admittedly I had to depend more on weapons in the endgame and there's definitely some balancing issues. The combat system as a whole wasn't great when it was released and is certainly showing its age now. I enjoyed completing a lot of the Guild questlines for the first time as well - the most enjoyable of these was probably the Dark Brotherhood questline, and the least enjoyable/interesting was The Mages Guild.
