"If you’ve never experienced Skyrim, the Special Edition is certainly an adventure you can’t afford to miss."

"It’s showing its age and still suffers from the trademark Bethesda bugs, but The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition is a good enough excuse to warrant a return trip or...

"A wonderful recreation of Skyrim, which remains - despite rough edges and badly-aged elements - one of the greatest RPGs ever made."

I have always heard great things about Skyrim but had never had the opportunity to play. I grabbed it here for a great deal. It has been a ton of fun so far.

Seems like Bethesda found the right amount of simple mechanics/open world game action rpg here. Still without mods the game seems very simple and might be a little boring after a while. Also the quest design and gameplay mechanics is a little too power-fantasy like for an RPG game. Still mods keep the game alive, fixing bugs and expanding gameplay options even though the various version and patches following the game's 11 year old release should've worked on that more than they did.

I've played around 4000 hours of this game across various platform since it's release. The story is ok but the side quests and details are where this game shines. This game is famous for it's active modding scene so it's nearly impossible to get bored of it!
