Pros: incredibly detailed open world, infinite quests, astonishingly versatile, ultimate customizations, fantastic story
Cons: occasional lag and glitches
This much praised high fantasy role playing game opened the door to gamers everywhere to welcome newcomers and experienced players alike to the genre. One of the reasons the game has been so well received is because of how versatile and appealing it is for all different kinds of gamers. The level of customization in this game really makes the player feel like they apart of Tamriel (the world Skyrim resides in). From being able to intensely customize your character, to being able to customize your abilities and even name your weapons. Because we are in the genre of high fantasy, the world of Skyrim is so mystical and magical it makes it very exciting to explore all the different parts of the land. The way the game was designed you can easily play for 100 hrs (I played for 200 collectively) and still have quests to do. Most games don't produce in excess of 30 hours of gameplay let alone 100+. Because the world of Skyrim seems so infinite and there are so many quests the fun essentially never stops. The story is a great and epic tale of a chosen one called the Dragonborn, who has the ability to 'shout' like the dragons of old who flew high above the skies of Tamriel. Overall I believe it is one of the greatest (if not the greatest) RPS ever made thus far.
