Skyrim- Video Game Review

Monday, November 11, 2013


 This week let's talk about an AMAZING RPG!  Skyrim.  I love Skyrim soooo much.  I don't actually own it.  I borrowed it from a friend... but this game is worth owning.  It is worth the price because you get hours and hours of play time. This game is an open world game... which makes it even more fun because you can either chose to follow the main story line or the many side quests.  This game is long.. it's not a just jump in and play game.  At the beginning of the game you pick your character.  You chose how they look, their race, their talents.  Conan has another hilarious video of him playing this game... here you can see him trying to figure out what character he is going to be:





Honestly this game is really good if you like the RPG style. The world are beautiful. I have played Oblivion as well and enjoyed it but this one just takes the graphics to another level. (Oblivion is the game before Skyrim).  This is about a 200 hour game... no seriously.  If you play the whole thing and really explore you should expect a long play time.  Which is what I want from games.  I hate spending $60 on a game that I can beat in 6-10 hours.  Those games I'll rent from redbox.



I typically always go with a magic/sorcerer class. Of course I did in this game too. I really enjoyed that leveling up system where you pick what magics you want. The next image shows some of the abilities and where you would level them up.

 I read a review on the game that opened up with this: If you have no idea what the Elder Scrolls franchise is, you are probably either (a) an adult woman, or (b) the sort of person who once beat up the sort of person who likes the Elder Scrolls franchise, so herewith a quick primer: Bethesda Game Studios made it; its genre is the genre that has elves; and its subgenre is the open-world RPG. 
Wow.. as usual women aren't supposed to like video games.  It is sad really.  I mean.. why?  Yes I have met many girls or "women" who look at me crazy when I say that I play.. but why do I have to get that look.  Why can't it just be OK that we have that hobby.  I will be an adult women playing hopefully till I am an an old woman playing! 

If you are a woman or a men.... I recommend Skyrim.  It is an experience you won't forget and it will suck up your life.  it will also take away from your reading time just like me.

I give this game a 10 out of 10!

  1. I've been eyeing this game for a while now. It's so dumb when people think woman don't play games (or that they suck at it) It looks gorgeous!

  2. Yay for Skyrim! My husband and I have indeed had many hours of fun with this game. But eventually, somehow, it got too intense for me and I had to stop playing, lol. I am such a wimp.

    1. LOL! Stop playing! Well it is a long long game and it takes a long time to beat so I can see it becoming overwhelming.

  3. My brother actually has a copy of Oblivion, but I've never played it, though have spent some hours watching him- the music is beautiful, I love being able to create your own character, and the world... it looks really interesting, and after reading this review, I'm really keen to try at least the first game for myself, and see what I think!

    1. I love to watch people play this game too... and the music is amazing!! If you have Pandora.. you should listen to the Skyrim station. We always listen to that while we are playing Dungeons and Dragons!
