Skyrim is in my top 5 of all time and I have only been playing it for 3 days now...Its such a amazing blend of Oblivion, Fallout 3, and Fallout: New Vegas. They guys at Bethesda are at the peak of their game and only going up. I am a Fallout junkie and Skyrim is blowing me away, which means the next Fallout game should just blow me away.

This is hands down the best game ever put out by Bethesda, and quite possibly my favorite RPG of all time. Go anywhere, do anything are pretty much the mantra in this game.
Graphically it is much superior to Oblivion, the facial animations are much better. YOu will still see some weird random glitches, but knock on wood I havent come across any game breaking ones after a full weekend of play. Its pretty much just funny things like a mammoth standing on anothers head and stuff like that.
The crafting, and economies are much deeper than in oblivion, and the inventory and stats systems are streamlined.
The single complaint I have, which sounds pretty trivial is what is the point of buying a horse, if your companions dont have one. They wind up slowing you down to thepoint you have to walk your horse, or just rush ahead and stop for a while so they can keep up.
I cant wait to get home from work and play again!

I've been wanting some things removed in the previous games that I finally got in Skyrim!

The first thing is trying to make a perfect character! There is no major or minor skills, or stats you gain for getting 10 skills. Only skills that are theif, warrior, or mage.

You gain 10 skills of any and you level up! No need to worry about maximizing your character, play how you want to play without getting penalized.

This is what I wanted for a very long time, now I can play the game without worrying about my skills.

THIS GAME IS ABSOLUTLY BEAUTIFUL AND AWESOME!!
