The world that Bethesda created is just flat out beautiful, from looking up in the night sky to watching the fog move high up on the mountains. The best part is, it’s not static, it actually moves. This game is easily the best thing I’ve played all year and I’ve played all the big releases from January to November, since December has no big releases. If you haven’t tried it, try it. Rent it, buy it, Gamefly it. Either way, you need to try this game out. There will not be a higher recommendation from me when talking about this year’s titles."
