Skyrim is an open world RPG in the popular Elder Scrolls series. Skyrim does a good job on improving on Oblivion by removing the disappointing levelling system and with more handcrafted dungeons and other locations. Combat in Skyrim is immensely fun and is definitely the best it has ever been in the Elder Scrolls series, the graphics are also significantly better giving the different races a far unique appearance. Mods are incredibly easy to use now thanks to the Steam workshop which gives Skyrim far more replayability and allows for graphical and gameplay enhancement.
Unfortunately some areas of the game including magic has been simplified. There's far fewer spells in Skyrim than there was in Oblivion and Morrowind and also fewer weapon types. The UI is also horribly simplified possibly from the consoles but luckily this is easily fixed with mods.
Overall Skyrim is easily one of the greatest RPGs in recent years and a game i would definitely recommend
