I just finished playing Skyrim. I got the game "for free" when I very recently bought a new XBOX 360S. The disk drive on my old XBOX 360 failed a couple weeks ago. I'm glad I didn't pay $60 for Skyrim. Skyrim's map is amazing. The artistry is truly incredible. The level of detail is impressive. The vastness is something to behold. But I found the game to be quite annoying at times. I completed the game yesterday and I was glad when the end finally came because I was getting bored. People call this an RPG, but I thought it was a tedious shooter as well. I would never recommend paying full price for this game. The following web site gave Skyrim a 10 out of 10 rating:
I think they may have been giving it an "A for effort" because a lot of effort went into it. I always use that web site before I decide to purchase a game. The 10 would have been misleading. You have to keep in mind that I'm a different kind of gamer. I am a TOTAL "Halo Wars" fanatic. I think it's the best game I've ever played. Most people would say my opinion is crazy because of that. I'm just into strategy gaming with the most intelligent AI...other humans. Overall, I thought Skyrim was kinda boring.
