"Unless you never touched The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim when it was released, or you're a die-hard fan of the license who's in the throes of nostalgia, this special anniversary...

"Skyrim: Anniversary Edition is full of lackluster additions to a fantastic game. Some new areas are blocked off, quests feel like busy work, and the new items aren’t all that...

GameStar

"Skyrim is still magnificent, but a collection of moderately executed additional content does not justify the new price for an old game."

It's the dame old skyrim with a few extras. Hard to justify the price hike, but $20 on sale for this much content is hard to beat. And as a plus, it runs very well on Steam Deck.

Skyrim is awesome! After so long, it's still being supported, hence the anniversary edition! It is a little dated, but only slightly. It's no 2023 game but it absolutely holds up. And for a great price on sale, it's a steal!

It's a really good game with how much there is to explore and the amount of content in it amd the mods only add to it as well incase you are looking for more or feel something lacking. The bugs can get annoying at times but you can install a mod to help with that.

I have not played this game since I owned the boxed original back in the day, however this time I bought the latest version the Anniversary Edition and I did enjoy it, lot of massive spaces to explore, location and MANY MANY HOURS of play etc So you really get your money worth out of this game for sure. However I felt it lacked a decent story, ES IV was MUCH better in this regard. Now do not get me wrong I enjoyed it, but I found the game overall VERY easy, I found one weapon, the Nord Honed Hammer, hit level 29 with 93 double handed skill and every BIG baddie was 2 - 3 hits before they were dead, most however were 1 hit, with the exception of the dragons which took 6+ Hard swings to take down, and of course the bosses end boss in Dragon Slayer and the Vampire timeline (Which BTW I enjoyed more than the Dragon Born story), but I never found myself angry or overly challenged, maybe this was due to how I built my character, I also found that the level up system was kinda pointless apart from upgrading health and stamina and the double handed attacks. I NEVER upgraded anything other than that, maybe speech a couple times. I NEVER EVER Spent money on weapons or armour, as I always found the weapon of choice for the majority of the game very early on including the Full Blade Armour with swapping out the gloves, boots and helmet twice, so even the gold / money system was silly, OH I bought a house and adopted a kid, other than that I never spent a coin on anything other than potions. Unlike the Fall Out series where you NEED to upgrade many aspects of your characters to get to hidden levels, quests etc, I found Skyrim just kinda handed it all to you on a silver platter. ES IV Oblivion is a much better game although not as pretty. Did I enjoy it? Hell yea, was ES IV and Morrowind better? Absolutely. After the main storyline and the vampire story line (Again I enjoyed that story line more than the main story line), I just found myself going through the motion of finishing side quests and not caring and lost interest. I put in 40 hours into the game so yea big bang for your buck for sure. It will be a very long time before I play this again. But those that have not played it for ages, it is worth a revisit. Just my two cents.

Honestly, this game has been one of my favorite games to ever play. Sure it has glitches; it was made in 2011. However, those glitches are what make Syrim, Skyrim. Whether it's the fortify restoration loop or invisible chests, they make this game. Not only does it perfectly combine RPG with everything else, but it succeeds at something many games haven't, and that is never running out of things to do. Even if you 100% the game completely, you can just restart, and get back on that carriage. I have lost countless hours playing this game and honestly, it's worth it. Some of the questlines are less than enjoyable, but many other aspects of Skyrim make up for it.
