Giant Bomb: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Reviews

How is it that after 60 hours of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, the first thing I want to do when I finish writing this review is play more Skyrim? It's simply because, like Bethesda's Elder Scrolls and Fallout games before it, Skyrim offers a fantasy world so rich and expansive that to describe other games in those terms after playing this one would just feel hollow. The sheer amount of content packed into the game is a true marvel of video game production; it's even more marvelous that all of it is so well executed that you want to see and do everything, and better still that you're free to play it all in whatever way you want. Unsurprisingly, Skyrim isn't perfect in a technical sense, but it gets close enough to fulfilling the potential of this specific role-playing format that the experience it offers is absolutely essential.

giant bomb gives everything a 5 stars no offence to skyrim. but if you give 60% of the games you review a perfect score your site losses credibility.

ps. skyrim does look like a 5/5

If you look at the website they give around 15% of games they have reviewed 5 stars. 5 Stars on GiantBomb means:

"While we don't believe any game is perfect, we recommend this game without reservation."

So they are not saying 15% of the games they review are the best games on earth just that they would recommend them without reservation.
