Why Skyrim Is The Best Game Ever

Sabotage Times: For the 3rd time in as many days, I’ve found myself staring blankly at the TV wondering why it’s dark outside, why I’m still in my dressing gown and why I haven’t done anything constructive yet.

Sure, I’ll admit this has happened many times before during my life; in this case however, I’ve found myself to be unashamed. I haven’t achieved anything that would seem ‘useful’, but man alive, I’ve seen an entirely new world and I’ve barely scratched the surface. Skyrim has yet to disappoint me, and here’s why. (PC, PS3, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Xbox 360)

Plus I started gaming this generation. And listen to the media like a good boy.

Like all games don't have those huh? Man, this game is so beyond anything I've played in a long time. It's so large that you see past any of the issues that come up. The patch is set for this coming week. Then what? You must be enjoying the map pack MW3? Or the new redone BF3? Man, other games are very shallow when it comes to something like this game.

"Man, this game is so beyond anything I've played in a long time"

Same here man, this is hands down one of the best games I've ever played in my life. And I been gaming since the NES. This game makes me feel like I did as a kid when all I wanted to do was play Mario 3. So far my GOTY

Maybe you guys are just so starved for a RPG. Stop pointing fingers at other people who you think are being shallow, when maybe you maybe slightly shallow yourself.

Totally Vinn, I'm near 90 hours in this game and I got it 3,4 days after it came out. The pure randomness out wondering the county side is awesome. Could be fighting a Bear, then all of a sudden a Dragon comes down from the sky. The quests and side quests, all the games items. This is just way to much epicness.

They need to up the NPC interaction a bit... They spend too much time bugging out and generally being idiots/saying stupid things, fully breaking any immersion.

Oblivion/Skyrim's NPCs remind me of the 'commercials' on 'The Truman Show'

Haha nice one.

On topic: I think people should stop sayin things like "this is the best game ever released" because it makes them sound stupid. You can say that it's a great game and way more people will listen to you. Otherwise you sound like a Twilight Teenie girl trying to prove that it's the best thing ever happened.

Skyrim isn't as buggy as everyone makes it out to be, at least compared to Oblivion.

On pc, I've had almost no problems with the game. I sort of agree with the author. It might be one of my favorite games.
Mutant-Spud  +   1463d ago
He's right but I've found that if you focus on one thing at a time the game is a lot easier to enjoy.
I was losing patience with Skryrim over the last few days but then decided just to focus on the winterhold college plotline and I'm totally hooked again.
I remembered that I was the same with Oblivion to begin with but once you start working through the guilds one at a time and see your character grow these games are a lot more satisfying.

Skyrim FTW! Best Game of my life!!!

Skyrim is an excellent game. Fix all the bs glitches then it'll have my vote for this. I still can't get into Markarth without a guard attacking me after i completed the Forsworn Conspiracy quest. (Can't complete certain quests because of this.) The marriage glitch is also annoying. Not to mention the frame rate after i play 3+ hours. I really am enjoying this game, but the little bugs and glitches are starting to piss me off tbh.

Let yourself get caught by the Markarth guards. That particular problem is not a glitch, as you'll see.

Why? Because it ate my first character? Or because the save data will bloat to the point of being unplayable?

Sorry, Bethesda managed to miss some HUGE flaws in this game. Seeing as the bloating save data was in Fallout 3, AND New Vegas you think they would know to check for it, and there is NO way they could have missed these in their beta testing.

If it wasn't for the bugs (which I haven't experienced many of yet but I live in fear of the 6mb save bug) it would probably be the best game I ever played in a sense. Half-life 2 and Ico still affected me on a much deeper emotional level and Fallout 3 is much more my type of thing in terms of setting and tone but in terms of everything else I've never played anything close to Skyrim.

NO game is the best game ever.
ironfist92  +   1463d ago
Personal Opinion. The best game ever is whatever you choose it to be.
Sugreev2001  +   1463d ago
Great game,certainly not the best ever.

I love how many people's assholes get puckered when someone gives an opinion on how much they enjoy this game, and then feel the need to express how much their asshole is puckered up like anyone gives a shit.
