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!!

Not much more to be said than what hasn't already been touched on. This game is up and down completely astonishing. Gameplay, Visuals, Controls, etc., this game nails it all. Don't contemplate whether to get this or not, there's not a single reason not to. This is essentially one of the top 5 games ever created, no matter your choice of game preference
