    I really enjoyed the Witcher 3 and sure, it's one of the best games of all time, but when I played Skyrim again... the nostalgia that this game has for me... I realised Skyrim has something that the Witcher 3 didn't gave me. The first time you play Skyrim you get that feeling, lol I don't know how to explain but I'm sure most of you guys had it.Skyrim -> Witcher 3. I know you can't compare and I say both games are masterpieces. But Skyrim remains my number 1 of those two games.

  • Joey Deguelle

    Skyrim gets a 9.5, Metal Gear Solid 5 The Phantom Pain gets a 10. I'm done.

  • Hunter Jarrett

    This game will always hold a special place in my heart

  • Thelegend27

    I'm sorry, but this game is a 10.

  • Ashraf

    i got mine today at black friday legendary edition for only 30 bux so glad. comes with all 3 dlc's! :D

  • m Cave

    10/10 game has already made 1.3 BILLION and they want to release a remastered version....easily best game I have ever played and still playing it.

  • Nathaniel Levesque

    I would love to live in the world of Skyrim, except for one problem.I would have to live in constant fear of getting shot in the knee with an arrow.

  • Patriot

    This got 9.5 and ESO get a 7.8.... I think ESO should more like a 3/10. And this a 10/10. I've played Skyrim since 2011 and it has NEVER gotten boring.

  • Chuka Amur

    9.5 really skyrim should get 15 out of 10

  • C.S. Ewens

    Ha the people saying skyrim is 'terrible' because of the flaws in it. No game has ever even approached the level of immersion and depth or world creation as skyrim. Perhaps there are frustrating aspects; but to claim outright that it is a terrible game is just idiotic. Perhaps i'm a fan boy, but if skyrim is terrible, i'd be interested to hear what they would call aliens colonial marines or lococycle. Idiots crowd the gaming landscape, buying angry birds for 60$ on next gen consoles. The amount of love and sheer man hours that went into skyrim are worthy of respect, something it seems many are too foolish to realize. Fus.

  • EnragedFliqpy

    I call bullshit. This game deserves a 10. With the dynamic character design to the AMAZING soundtrack, this game is still my favorite game. (Hint I'm 13)

  • League Bat

    I don't know HOW IN THE WORLD this game gets a 9.5, then they go ahead and give GTA 5 a perfect 10/10, when in fact, the character development and the storyline in that game are ATROCIOUS.

  • eric vargas

    Greatest game of all time imo 🙌🌊👑

  • DarkSamuraiHD

    When does it come out?

  • themrmystery47

    i don't get it, skyrim 9.5.      gtaV, 10.nothing wrong here and still not a perfect score. gta 5 had that awful torture scene (which they even acknowledge to be out of place) and still get a master piece score.this system review is broken

  • Yasar Hartmann

    I ended up buying this for all platforms(PC, PS3 & XB360) because im so fucking inlove with the game, what better way to support the developers when they do something right, to buy it on all available platforms? :P

  • Joe Slater

    I bought this game the very day it came out 4 years ago, and now i find myself redownloading it to play it yet again, despite fallout 4 having just come out. This game is my favourite of all time, i would of given this game a 10 without a seconds hesitation.

  • Marowa Christy

    Must say the game is legendary and I can safely say it's better the the elder scrolls online.

  • Leo Zuniga

    I never saw the appeal to the game because I don't really like the whole fantasy theme, I prefer Fallout's theme. I bought the game and all the DLC's for 20 bucks on Xbox, part of the deals with gold. It was cheap so I thought I would try it out... I regret buying the game because I am HOOKED! A few bugs here and there, but damn there's so much to do. I'm actually overwhelmed by it, I finish a quest and end up activating 10 more quests.

  • Yahya Mroue

    wtf skyrim is a masterpeice!

  • Twizz!!!!! !

    This looks awesome! I'm playing Oblivion rn but this looks a lot more stunning and well done than Oblivion itself 😮😮👏👏

  • Jorek

    Funny how this game gets 9.5 and GTA 5 gets 10.

  • Colin Cockburn

    10/10 master piece. When this gets remastered do another review or somthing


    Pros -Huge selection of armour,spells, and shouts to choose from-Detail in the landscape is amazing (A little Gloomy though)-DLC opens a hole new world to new players like me-Companions actually help you on quests unlike other games where they did in 3 seconds or just stand there-Perks really help developing the character-Using spells and scrolls have more of an impact on the player than using melee weapons. (doesn't feel like we're hitting air) Cons-Soundtrack gets VERY repetitive after level 20-Would have liked to seen more vampire and werewolves wandering in the mountains or something-Basically all missions take place in a cave filled with draugers-Dragons become very boring after the 4 or 5 tine-3rd person is VERY awkward I HATE how my character stands on the left of the screen when I'm not in combat-Character dialogue is BORING-Story takes WAAAAY to long to reach its climax. Half way through I literally forgot I was doing the main Quest I thought I was doing a really long miscellaneous Quest.-There should be a cap to how many missions you can have at the same time. I literally have over to hundred Quests I still haven't done. Half of which are just boring miscellaneous Quest.-Combat lacks impact and very repetitive (This includes using shouts)Game is OK it could be amazing with improvements. Still I can't wait for Skyrim 6. Overall 6/10

  • GamesPlaysWill

    Downloading it on Steam as I type this. :3

  • Anonymous

    can wait for elder scrolls 6

  • Aaron Johnson

    Skyrim is NOT a 9.5. It's a 11. Considering the fact that it came out. 11/11/2011 get it?

  • N7Garrus

    this game is bad, because it promotes witchcraft, magic and fake gods called princes promoting that their actually demons in disguise and their all bad, then it promotes sexism because it's fanbase who have nothing to do with the game at all make sex mods and gun mods, guns are bad, and you can do hardcore drugs in this gameand then it has animal men, that's fake and who the hell plays animal wo/men, it's all witchcraft.and then there's drinking beer, beer is super bad because you can get high off beer okay, and btw call of duty is better than this bad game. this game is a rip off of call of duty

  • scampie '

    This review is absurd. 9.5!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thats 0.5 points of excellence, dragonborn flawlessness, crafty sneak thiefs, arrow in the knees, bedding lydia, hidden passages into settlements, the lusty argonian series, and your reality becoming this game that IGN DID NOT ACCOUNT FOR!!!!!

  • Midas

    This game easily has the best soundtrack in any video game I have ever played, I also have spent over 150 hours in the game and have not completed the main story line or any of the DLC story lines one time. That just proves how amazing this game is in 2015, but also astonishing considering it was made in 2011.

  • NaviSky Hunter

    Playing Skyrim is 2016 is still amazing!

  • Chemo US

    Skyrim sucks call of duty is the best game ever made.

  • Syahroni Hermawan

    9.5? Really!? Skyrim doesn't deserve it. Give it 12/10, and yes, Skyrim deserve it.

  • Brocialist Party of America

    10/10 the best Elder Scrolls game since Modern Warfare 2

  • 100%CertifiedWhiteGirl

    I bet 1.000.000$ that even with future Elder Scrolls games Skyrim will go down as the absolute best period

  • Tyler Austin

    IGN: Skyrim is amazing, but it has bugs and glitches. 9.5/10IGN: GTA V has bugs and glitches, but it's a masterpiece. 10/0

  • gigas81

    I want to get this, but does 90% of the NPC actually say "I took a arrow to the knee" every time you talk to them? What happened to dialogue variety?

  • YouMeAndTea

    Skyrim, what a great game. Fantasy done right.Pros:-An amazing open world which looks great-An epic soundtrack that sets the mood perfectly (That opening theme <3)-A wide range of classes that can change up gameplay-Interesting lore that makes the world feel real Cons:-Lacking a good story -Characters feel wooden (dont really care for any of them)-Combat feels quite stiffOverral score: 9/10

  • Grant Alexander

    Does anyone still enjoy playing this? I can't believe I never got it. Should I buy it??

  • RykoDimSim

    8 bucks on PC steam sales

  • Gunman0803

    9.5/10 "it's not cod"-ign

  • McFalco Sacko

    This game isn't as good as it was made out to be. I found dragon's dogma and dark souls series to be far better if your looking for good combat and story. This game is good for exploration but even still, I got bored w with the lack of interesting stuff.

  • ChickenSwordz

    7.8/10 imoNot enough water.

  • Jaxon Duin

    Hahaha They loved the game, and Bethesda probably didn't even have to buy them out.

  • jkdoorbinnia

    I miss this game. There is always something to do, and I love the freedom to explore the beautiful world. I might re-install just for nostalgia's sake. 

  • Diego Sanchez

    I'm getting this game today!!

  • Gizmo Gates

    I'm not surprised that this didn't get a 10, as much as a am about the last of us did.

  • ghost N/A

    How tf did this not get 10/10? This is easily the best game I've ever played

  • Eggheadcobra

    From my experience, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is a great game if you want to go and have a big adventure. I myself had a great time exploring the huge world of Skyrim, and finding all these cool items and locations. But to me, Skyrim is personally the most overrated game I've ever played.The huge world, exploration, and quests are there, but everything else isn't. For starters, the presentation is poor. Graphics are not very impressive, the music got repetitive (Though it had nice environmental music), and there's a lot of NPCs, but they all share the same 10 or so voice actors.CPU characters were mediocre. Partners would fall WAY behind you, enemies went from being very easy to straight up frustrating, and there was no challenge or fun in fighting them. It felt more like a chore. Combat wasn't a whole lot of fun. Swinging weapons was clunky, and spells, magic, shouts, and everything else was cluttered. I found myself constantly switching from a spell to a weapon and back in the middle of fights. The quick menu didn't help either, because if you had to much stuff in there, it would become just as cluttered. I would had much preferred a class system than having it all at your disposal.The controller set up was awkward. I tried using Circle and Triangle as my attacks (Yes, I was unfortunate to play the inferior PS3 version), but all that ever did was screw up shooting arrows for me, since the aim button was one of your attack buttons, and shooting was the other, or if I wanted to combine two spells to make a more powerful one. But shooting arrows in Skyrim is not very thrilling either, so there's another problem.This game had very little polish. I may have played the crappier PS3 version, but there were glitches that were available on other platforms. While there were some glitches that made the game exploitable, others made the game unplayable, or unbeatable. Anyone remembers the infamous invincible Alduin glitch that happened in the Alduin's Bane quest?Speaking of Alduin, he has got to be my personal worst boss battle I've ever fought. He was hyped up to be the world eater, the son of the most powerful god in the Elder Scrolls lore, feared by all, but fighting him was so embarrassingly easy. I defeated him in about 5 minutes, and not only that, he was just like any other dragon boss in the game, but with a few changes. It also doesn't help that he doesn't look very threatening.Yes this game has so much more to offer, like crafting your own arsenal, joining groups, buying or making a home,and taking an arrow in the knee, but since Skyrim gives you so many options on what you want or don't want to do, all those options didn't matter to me because that's not what I was interested in. Or at least not all of them.Overall, Skyrim is a good game if you want to go out and have and adventure, but in that adventure you WILL come across all (If not most) of these issues. Maybe I'll pick it up again on PC to try out all those crazy mods, but as the experience it comes packaged in, I give this game a 7 out of 10. It's a good game, but its CONs outweigh it's PROs, and it doesn't deserve the high praise it got.But again, this is all from my own personal experience. Feel free to agree or disagree.

  • Shashank Kalra

    i hope they improve the combat in next game

  • Will Eccleston

    Best game of the past 5 years hands down. Great story, graphics, gameplay, ridiculous amount of sidequests and stunningly designed landscape. The underground areas are also breathtaking.

  • Pat Thomas

    Skyrim is 3 years old now :')

  • Lewis Russell

    Actually listening to someone listing everything brilliant about Skyrim made me realise just how ridiculously good this game is.

  • kakasedfg

    is it too late to play skyrim ?

  • PenguinCOD

    has anyone actually 100% completed this game?

  • SgtHail

    God this game is good. Makes Fallout 4 look somewhat older than it actually is.

  • Leah Glidewell

    Still one of my favorite games to this day.

  • A 100 Five this Where This

    Easily one of the 5 best games of all time in my opinion.

  • Jav Mojo

    This game is fun, and great. But bad at the same time. There is no character progression when it comes to normal NPCs, whatever you do they will never get older and always see you as a wimp. The cities are the size of a farm and people are as interesting as my left sock. The sprawling markets are empty and cities are inhabited by 5 people not counting guards. Quests are the same - go get something, detour, dungeon, and go back. I still love this game, but after 500 hours I am left wanting. I'd like to see the stealth system refined to be more meaningful, and NPCs have much more options when it comes to dialogue. Hunters won't tell you shit about where to hunt, or if you can hire them to hunt. This game could be so much more, but under all the beauty and replayability, it's just a wild arrow chase.I know mods fix this, but you should enjoy a game without installing mods which completely overhaul it.

  • ANML

    Thinking of buying this game. Is it worth the 15 dollars? :)

  • TheOhiometalhead

    Still Playing This 4 years later

  • Rene Rodriguez

    I know nothing about skyrim or any elder scrolls game. I have never been interested in this Genre but I keep hearing how great this game is so I am interested. I know it is a couple years old but is this the newest one? If so, is it worth buying?

  • Vernon Roche

    Weird how Skyrim has 9.5 (and has "Quests and story" as a pro and not a con)and Dark Souls 2 has only 9.0
