No words can explain the epicness of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It definitely has the aspect of bringing you into a different world as did WoW. With about 800 hours of gameplay you really couldn't go wrong with buying this game. Overall there are not very many flaws to the game, despite a few bugs here and there, and uber long loading screens. Otherwise the game is gorgeous and jam-packed with things to explore and achieve. Skyrim is a must buy and any fans of the RPG genre will devour this game. Thank you Bethesda.

Skyrim is above and beyond the mark of good gaming. It puts it self in a position where only the best video games are aloud to be. I have played over a hundred video games in my life but I have never played anything like Skyrim. Skyrim is the most beautiful, huge, landscape the gaming world has ever seen. You can do anything and customize everything. You start out in the beginning as a prisoner sent to execution. Right after one dies you are next as you get into the position you are ready to die. Then a dragon comes into the village and causes total havoc. As you go through you find a way out and escape to go to a near by village. In the beginning you can pick between species where you can become an elf, cat, lizard, or just a human, (There are names to the species but I forget them so I just say that). You costume everything, your cheekbones, nose, mouth, eyebrows, eyes, facial hair, color skin, scars you name it you will be able to customize it. Well now that you do all of that, you just start the game. You are given quests that you can choose to do. The best part is you can just explore and forget about the quests. You just wonder the land, finding new civilizations and cities. As you go through the land of Skyrim, multiple creatures try to kill you. All of the creatures are designed amazingly, they are armed ( Except for the Bears, Mammoths, elk, wolfs, and any other animal. Well enemies like skeleton are armed and trolls and human. I feel one of the best parts of Skyrim is all of the equipment there is in the game. You can find tons of books, weapons, clothes, and just whatever. Also about customization, you can level up magic and summonings. You can use shouts and use fire, electricity, Ice, and things that are like black holes that devour your enemies. What is also crazy is that there are tons of AI, you can ask them millions of questions and whatever. And the coolest part is Dragons. Finally my ONLY concern is that it takes very long to kill something. 9.8
