First of all, i'm not a big fan of RPG games cos i used to find it dull and stupid. Skyrim's different. It changed my life. It made me realised how wonderful the RPG world is. I'm gonna list down the pros and cons.

Pros
1. Over 300+ hours of gameplay
2. The map is HUGE. Super HUGE.
3. Dragons!!! Slay them all!!
4. Beautiful graphics and nice character animations.

Cons
1. Can be a bit glitchy sometimes.
2. Dropping of framerate.
3. Bugs.. Bethesda -.-"
4. Lags.

A little tippy tip for Skyrim players out there who experienced major glitchiness and bugs. Before playing, remember to delete the older autosaved/manualsaved files and keep the CURRENT autosave file ONLY. Been doing this since i played this game and i have not yet experienced any bugs or dropping of framerates but freezed only two times but no big deal. Not to forget, i have been reading the reviews and some of them complaint that they seem to be experiencing freezes when their save game files exceeds more than 6mb. Haha its funny you know cos my save game file is almost reaching 9mb and i have not yet experience any major freezes.

Last but not least, buy Skyrim! Don't rent it! Have fun gamers :)

The New Best Single Player Game

Just a couple of weeks ago, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion was the best single player game. Now its sequel and successor, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has, at last been released. Oblivion took me on adventures in a world I felt I was solidly part of and gave me all the emotions a really epic big-budget movie gives you, but for longer than a year! That's how expansive and amazing Oblivion was.

Now Skyrim is here, and with the improved technology, and Bethesda's (Developer) veteran experience with the ps3 along with their unbreakable commitment to giving the players the best Elder Scrolls game possible, Skyrim is the new best game.

The storyline is more captivating then ever before. The quests are even more limitless, if that was even possible. Caves and dungeons are numerous and completely unique from one another. The hand-crafted details put into every dungeon make them a desire to explore and you will never be left unrewarded. The vast open landscapes are of such variation that they beg exploration to be done upon them. The character detail, animation, and customization, has been improved to the point of perfection. And the addition of sprinting helps you get around faster on foot.

In Skyim, several of the citizens will actually be preforming well animated tasks, such as wood chopping, smithing, hunting the plentiful of beautiful animals, praying, and more. And all these things, you can do yourself. Particularly smithing. You can create and upgrade weapons and armor, meanwhile your character is actually doing animations for these things.

The addition of dual weapons and spells, and even mixing the two is quite welcome. It allows you to do things the way you want even more. And that's what its all about. Skyrim is a world in which you control, on a vast level, what you do and how you do it.

You are Dragonborn and can use your powers to save the lands from the destruction of the sudden return of dragons! Embark on a journey that never ends! Buy Skyrim

I love the Fallout series a lot but this blows them away I have dreams about this game after I go to sleep and to me that is the tru test of a good game, Infiltration into the human mind the only other game that has done this to me was when World at war Zombies came out.
