Since Skyrim VR was my first time with the game beyond watching a few minutes here and there of someone playing the flat version, it is truly and otherworldly experience. And the immersion of being a Mage/Archer blows the doors off of any other way to play that game.

You can sit and watch as people live their lives day by day. You could sit in a tavern and listen to bards play and sing. You could read dozens of books about the place as a scholar would. You can journey from tip to tip in so many adventures.

I'd say the only thing missing is dreams when you sleep. A cool feature would be to show short clips of of your last adventure as you're supposedly dreaming. Kind of a replay of you walking or in battle or talking to someone. Maybe a collage of clips for 10-15 seconds. Would be cool in and out of VR to have that. I mean, you can eat, train with weapons, train with magic,etc. Why not dreams. Or, since he's Dragonborn, he dreams of flying above Skyrim.

It's buggy sometimes. But definitely a great game coming from a guy that played D&D, Adventure Atari 2600, Dragonstomper, Balder's Gate, etc when I was young. This is on another level. Would be crazy with 2-4 player co-op. Like Skyrim Together is trying to do. Maybe next gen.
