This game is incredible so I'm thrilled! Kept me hooked for over 700 hours and I still listen to the soundtrack often. Phenomenal game, well deserving of these sales

That's the setting I want for TES VI as well, but I get the feeling they'll do Hammerfell next, it seemed to me like they were hinting towards it in Skyrim. At least I'll get to see Valenwood and Elseweyr in The Elder Scrolls Online.

This is amazing for an non squarnix rpg. ON the other hand i really hope the publisher doesn't get greedy and goes the COD way...shivers.
