"Skyrim is a superb game and it deserves every accolade it receives. It is, however, unambitious. Skyrim, alas, plays it safe with its familiar setting, and even safer with its familiar story. Considering the Elder Scrolls series has always been on the cusp of daring and grandiose game design, it both surprises and saddens me that the developers did not open a Pandora's box of ideas and choose to set their fifth game somewhere more exotic and fill it with more interesting characters and organisations."
BnBGaming's Declan thinks Skyrim is an unquestionably fantastic game, but it's missing one crucial thing: a good setting and a good story.
