With over US$1,390,000,000 in total revenue as of September 2017, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is still a massive success story for publisher and developer Bethesda, which has enabled the company to…
Damn , those ports paid off
One of the greatest games ever created.
This game is like summer movies; garbage that sells like hot cake.
Said no one ever
Not surprised that I am in the minority.
Played 20 mins of this game and never went back. I will never u detstand the hype of Skyrim. I haven't like ES since Morrowwind though. I know Morrowwind was broken but the fact were 20ish years since then and the ES games are still complete bug ridden messes with hidious voice acting and animations but still sells this much is mind boggling.
Same here - agree 100% with everything you said.
US$1,390,000,000 i think you are in the minoroty here. But you can offcourse have an opinion :-)
Part of the hype is getting past the tutorial.
Well you played 20 minutes of a game and wrote it off. You have no idea what Skyrim os like based on 20 minutes of gameplay.
lol I spent 20 minutes just creating my character.
I finished Skyrim twice. It's good game, but in my opinion, it's terribly overrated, and it did not deserve the praise it got.
There's always that bunch that hate something blatantly awesome. Please show me a massive open world title with 0 glitches? Yes we all loved Morrowind, but alas it's aged terribly. Skyrim gameplay mechanics are the best the series have ever seen, the maps are jam packed full on content, the soundtrack rocks, the modding community is incredible not to mention console modding and it's lore accurate AF. I think there's a slight bit of exaggeration on the ES hate considering the series is one of the main reasons open world RPGs are what they are today.
The Witcher 3, FFXV, HZD, The Crew, FC5, Just Cause 3, Dyling Light. Most of them provide rich maps with almost free of bugs.
Lol and you think they are bug free and as in depth as Elder Scrolls titles?
Wait, did you just say Just Cause 3 had no bugs? BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Thanks, I needed that today!
Skyrim is as shallow as a dried puddle in summer.
It's grown over time but they need to start doing this to Oblivion and Morrowind as well 😋
Funny, saw the thumbnail and I thought there was a new Ultimate version. Lol.
I completely understand why haha
