"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."

Well if you dont know Skyrim, you are doing game wrong. It is the 5th entry of the Elder Scrolls saga and, even though the purist may say its the worst, it became one of the most successful games ever. And it surely deserves it. Once tou end the tutorial, you are frees on the realms of skyrim, an inmense region to explore and to do, absolutely, whatever you want. With every single expansion, the game became bigger and added more and more activities to do. I lobe Skyrim and I always will

I already had this game on my PS3 and Xbox game pass. I bought it again for Steam so that I could fully use the modding system available, and I was not disappointed. The range of what you can do is insane, and it's one of the best games to mod, barring maybe Minecraft.
