We've all heard of the amazing game Skyrim, so I figured I'd make a thread about it (am a little bored).
For those of you who have never heard of Skyrim (SHAME ON YOU!): it's the 5th game in the Elder Scrolls series. The events in Skyrim take place 200 years after the crisis in Oblivion (4th game). This time, dragons have returned to the land of Skyrim when before they were nothing more but a myth. Of course, this is where you, the player, come in: you have to stop the dragons and find out who's behind their return.
That is just the main storyline though. There's much more you can do in Skyrim: raid dungeons, become a vampire/werewolf, join the Thieves' Guild, become a mage, slaughter bunnies... In short: lots and lots of content. The graphics and gameplay are simply amazing, truly something you must have experienced.
If you haven't tried this game yet, you should get your ass to your local games store and buy it (PS3/Xbox 360/PC).
