As an Xbox 360 launch title, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion set the stage for a surge of open-world adventures and Western RPGs on next-gen platforms. Five years later, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is finally here. Ever since Skyrim made its public debut at the 2010 VGAs, anticipation for this sandbox adventure has been climbing higher and higher. How could any game possibly make do on thousands of promises and expectations, set by both the studio and its legions of fans? Ladies and gentlemen, breathe easy.
