The best videogame ever, now on PS4. 1000+ hours on various consoles and editions, 10s of characters, so many achievements and trophies unlocked, and deaths recorded. I have loved fantasy for so long, but this is just something more. The setting is perfect. The open world is perfect. I loved the quests and the combat, which was so fresh and new when it came out, and even just ambling around exploring is amazing, with so much to see and do and people to meet and work for.
Build a house, raise a family, become a Thane, be a vampire, be a werewolf, master magic, slay dragons, ride dragons, befriend a dragon, be an assassin, be a thief, be a warrior, be an arch-mage, be a bard, read books, own a dog, ride horses, climb up mountains, hunt deer, cook meals, make potions, pick flowers, trap bees, marry someone, murder people, save people, rob people, raise the dead, take someone with you, smith armour and weapons, swim, go to the afterlife, kill undead, kill trolls, be a vampire-slayer, visit the world underneath Skyrim, explore caves, explore dwarven ruins, explore castles, explore lairs, and do whatever it is YOU want to do.
10/10, five stars out of five, and personally I don't think will ever be beaten, but we'll see.
