For those of the select few who haven’t played Oblivion have no fear as you don’t really need to understand Skyrim story line as it takes place 200 years later. Skyrim was rolled out on our 20 sided dice on November 11, 2011 by those fine folks at Bethesda. Those of us who shelled out the funds to play this RPG are rewarded with a rich vivid playing environment, smooth controls and what turns out to be a huge open world. The story main quest revolves around a Dragon that is prophesied to destroy the world and of course our efforts to stop this event.
I have the Skyrim Official Game Guide and it’s massive due to all approximately 373 quests that are available. You also get to ignore or choose the many side quests that pop up as you play the the main story. The freedom in this game is actually one things i truly love you can literally do just about anything you want, if you’re prepared to accept the consequences of your actions.
The three expansions available for this huge world incase you want added enjoyment:
Dawnguard - Vampire Battling
Hearthfire - Adopt children and Build Houses
Dragonborn - Fight the original Dragonborn bent on destruction
I would recommend saving often, using the skill trees efficiently and explore the heck out these worlds. The creatures and opponents are always springing up to test your mettle and I suggest to make alliances to give you a slight leg up. At the very least it gives them another target to swing, throw a spell or just plain stick arrows into. You can try walking the solitary path but I wouldn’t recommend it for your first play through. The inventory can be a bit cumbersome but that doesn’t take away from the fact that his the the best game for RPG gamers in a very long time.
- Expansive World
- Amazing Vistas
