This review is from: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
Bethesda have produced their finest work with Skyrim, and in the process possibly set the bar too high for themselves to ever hope to match in future Elder Scrolls episodes.
I'm using Windows Vista 64 with an nVidia GeForce 280GTX which is hardly top end nowadays and has had its problems when running games such as Rift and Battlefield 3. Thus far it has coped with Skyrim while providing a breathtaking view of the landscape and environments within which the game takes place. There are enough reviews out there about specifics without me needing to rehash what's been said before, but here are this gamer's personal views:
I am someone who has been gaming on pc and consoles since i began as a child in the mid 80s with a commodore 64, and with a background mostly in FPS games and MMOs in the last decade, hardly ever playing single player games in the last few years. In my opinion Skyrim is the closest any game has got to perfection regarding gameplay, combat, graphics, sound and immersion. It is a pure joy to play. 9.9/10 from me - with a slightly improved menu system it may have gained the final 0.1; though I've not had problems navigating it with a mouse that some seemed to have, it doesn't quite fit with the rest of the game.

Well I started gaming on an Atari 2600, progressing to the C64 and so on. I agree with you, this game is incredible and its hard to imagine a game offering as much in the future.
