The latest entry in The Elder Scrolls series; that by this point any seasoned gamer should have at least tried. A Fantasy Medieval Simulator at it's finest. ;)

Also one of my favourite games, thus the recommendation, thank you for the wonderful experiences Bethesda Team (and Todd Howard)! XD

If you're going to play the Requiem mod, I can recommend it.

If you're going to play vanilla, then I can't. You might as well shove pencils into your eyes in that case.

So ive wasted my life on this game. Like litterly wasted whatever 1500 hours of time comes out to, ive discovered every location on the map, played every DLC there is, collected every item, even items the console doesint want you to have. Ive memorized every dungeon and done every quest. Played every class-type and got every skill to legendary 100 and even over a few times. Ive played this game so much I know where everything is down to the elves ear cluster behind you as you walk into white river watch to the medium coin pouch on the main mast of the ship in broken oar grotto. And the mods. SO MANY MODS. But, at the end of the day what I love most about this game is that after all this time playing, I can annoy my friends by reciting the full heimskr speech word for word and repeating generic guard speech in real life when I get bored. I mean all the speech. You know youve played too much when you tell people on the street that steel is solid and true and that they fancy one handed swords, not those clunky two-handed weapons.

Ether way get this game-its got dragons, magic, awesome weapons, brainwashing(the good kind), and replayability. And an entire modding community behind it. Enough said aye.

"What's better - to be born good, or to overcome your evil nature through great effort?" By Paarthurnax

One of the most majestic phrases of video games. We are all different and our nature comes from our birth. There are those who are born with a good spirit and are educated to maintain, while others have to fight a battle with yourself to overcome their evil nature and redeem themselves. Only these people know the true essence and bad characteristics and so will not get tempted again. This rhetorical phrase also offers an answer to all those who give up of those born with defects.
