Updated on October 15, 2012

Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

In the virtual world of The Empire of Tamriel, the High King of Skyrim is dead, murdered by unknown assailants. The world is in turmoil as alliances are created and broken, and created anew, all after one singular goal: the Throne. The Dragons have returned and prophesied and the future of Skyrim, the very future of the entire Empire itself, hangs in the balance waiting for the birth of a hero. Will that hero arrive in The Elder Scrolls V: Skryim?

Why Are So Many Playing Skyrim?

Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is taking gaming to a whole new level. The technology with regard to the graphics is so far advanced over other games like, Oblivion, for example, that you absolutely feel you're inside this game.

But the big reason this game is becoming so popular is because of the freedom and wide range of playing options you have. In the past, there were skill levels - Alchemy, Conjuration, Destruction, Alteration, Enchanting, etc. These levels always gave you plenty of challenges to keep the game exciting and new.

Now, though, there are also have Specialty Skills within each of those skill levels. This creates multiple paths you can create within each skill level and adds a depth of game play - and character development - unheard of in any other game.

Bethesda, the creators of Skyrim, recently won the Video Game Industry's Game Of The Year Award, and it's easy to see why. Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is so much more than just a game. It's an awe-inspiring experience that grabs you up and drags you in. You're not just fighting a war. You're not just playing a game. You're living it. You're right there in the middle of all the action. And it's one scary, realistic ride!
