Oblivion was the game that pushed me over the edge on getting an Xbox 360 back in 2006. I poured well over a hundred hours in to that game, earned every non-DLC achievement, balked at horse armor, and had many an adventure exploring that grand world. Since then we've seen the Elder Scrolls franchise work its way in to a few other Bethesda titles, influencing the Fallout games of 2008 and 2010. And now here we are, six years later and a proper Elder Scrolls game has arrived. Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has descended on to the gaming landscape, and in what can only be considered the most epic outing yet for the franchise, Skyrim will send gamers on a quest that at times has some of the most awe-inspiring moments in gaming, and then shows a rough exterior that has the cynic in me up in arms. Do I think Skyrim is a great game? Absolutely! A fun game? Without a doubt! But it also suffers from a number of technical flaws that a critical eye simply cannot ignore.
