Volatile Mode - Skyrim's F*cking Awesome - Skyrim Review

Jeff writes: "Rarely does a game come around that is so enthralling, so engaging, so utterly awesome that an hour turns into a six-hour marathon. Many shared the experience this weekend as Bethesda's latest, Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, came blistering through without reproach and wasted away Sunday. Some out there managed to squeeze 200+ hours of gameplay into three days, playing night-to-day or 72 hours straight. And judging by how immersed I was (time flew this weekend), I can say I agree. I'm almost 20 hours into my adventure, and I still possess the urge to explore this vast land."

You put into words just how I feel. I work alot but all I wanna do is play this game. It is my favorite gaming experience since fallout 3 and bioshock and will most likely be my favorite game alongside ff7. I am 100 hours in and have easily more than half left. Unlike most games, my desire hasn't faded. I spent 2 hours last night creating and enchanting new armor for my follower and i simply because i wanted to. Then...an hour making potions for money. 3-4hours and i didn't quest at all. My one small gripe is that, unlike fallout 3, items in a chest aren't divided into categories which makes alot of time spent scrolling for my smithing equipment or alchemy equipment.

To a lot of people it is. It has enough content to satisfy everyone if u look for it. I have 100+ hours and not bored yet. No game other than morrowind and halo 2 in the good ol days hade that long

No, it's amazing. As someone who couldn't get into Oblivion but could beatt Fallout 3, It's amazing. To newcomers, it can be confusing because the game DOES NOT HOLD YOUR HAND. But once you cross the barrier of ignorance you begin to see just howw huge the world is in the game. Most people have played over 100 hours and haven't even seen all of Skyrim or have even beaten the game.

I didn't think it was that great either but that's just my opinion. I beat the game and did some exploring and haven't played since. I'm not saying the game wasn't good, but I don't think it's one of my favorite. I didn't really enjoy the combat that much to be honest. I wish it had more of a dark souls feeling to it but that's just my opinion. I'm glad people are enjoying it though.

I just dont like dragons and medievil settings or so i thought till i got into the slavic action of the witcher im really enjoying it i lasted till i got out of prison on oblivion and traded it so ill give skyrim a miss.

If you are not playing the game on Master difficulty, then I can see it being too easy and ultimately maybe boring. I'm level 36 (sword and board, heavy armor type of guy) and still get one shot by an Elder Dragon's fire sometimes....I'm loving it so far!
