honestly, i loved the gameplay.the world was so vast there were so many locations to find, weapons to craft or find, so many enemies, and tons more. but, you now come to the game itself. after so long for me it starts to freeze. every once and a while isn't so bad but eventually, it starts freezing over and over and you have to turn it off by the button,and then it starts saying you didn't turn it off properly and you lose data for the game! i've had to restart the WHOLE game twice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! this is what i think thanks for reading

I was loving this game and had decided to buy it. Then it started freezing up every time I tried to save. Long story short, this is a known issue with the game and no eta for a patch to fix it any time soon. This is a deal breaker, so thanks, but no thanks. I don't spend hard earned money on games that don't work.

The Way RPGing was meant to be

To be honest, this was my first Elder Scrolls game. I remember going into my local Gamestop, much like any day, with a question. My choices were,"Saint's Row the Third or Skyrim." The clerk asked me what type of game I was looking for, I said,"Immersive story, great combat, an overall good roll playing experience, something that I can replay over and over and over again." He looked at me, laughed, picked up the Skyrim box, and said,"if you have 10 minutes, let me in a nutshell explain to you why this is, hands down, the best way RPGing was meant to be." I said,"10 minutes? shoot!" And he began telling me all the many ways you could play this game. He, himself, was already 500 hours into gameplay, with 3 characters, all with completely different skill paths taken and levels.

I bought it, full price, took it home, put it in my PS3, and from that moment on, I was hooked. I have never known a more solid, immersive, and all around fun game. And not only that, but with the visuals, and the "play at your own pace" gaming style, Skyrim took me on a journey, and it still does everyday.

I give it a 10, even without the DLC (which I am hoping we PS3 players will get sometime before the turn of the century) and if not, I still wouldn't change my opinion. It is better than any Final Fantasy (the only other RPG i've ever played) more immersive than any other story, and more expansive than any other non-linear/sandbox style game I've played in pretty much all my life. If you're looking for something to really sink your teeth, heart, and mind into, without the threat of the game forcing you one way or the other, Skyrim is for you. Matter fact, I'll go out on a limb and say Skyrim is one of those games, gamers pretty much across every platform can agree, is one of the greatest games of all time.

Thus ends my brown nosing of Skyrim, but it was well worth it, because that game is that amazing. Happy Hunting.
