Game Overview

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is an open-world action RPG developed by Bethesda Game Studios for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. The fifth game in the Elder Scrolls series, it takes place in the Nordic homeland of Skyrim, where a civil war rages and dragons have returned to terrorise the land.

As with the previous games, the player controls an unknown prisoner who was caught in an Imperial ambush while attempting to cross the border into Skyrim. Headed to Helgen to be executed, the player is about to be beheaded when a Dragon arrives and destroys the town. Revealed to be the latest "Dovahkiin", a Dragonborn, an individual with the body of a mortal and the soul of a Dragon, Skyrim's civil war is the last in a sequence of prophetic events foretold by the Elder Scrolls.

I expect this game to sell another 10
million when the remaster on PS4/X1
comes out.
They will be perfect

Uhh, it IS the best-selling rpg of
all-time. It surely is not FFVII, which
used to be. But that game only sold like
9-10 million copies on PS1. Skyrim has
sold 20 million across 3 platforms
(Xbox360, PS3 and PC)

an outstanding feat this game is amazing
on the level of complete freedom of
exploration only that compares is maybe
GTA and minecraft in terms of freedom.
Only complaints are the lack of any gear
or item depth and the skill progression
is funky and makes the game way too easy
as you can have 1 character mastering
everything which is a bore once you get
past lvl 50. 9.7/10

Will be above 7mil by the end of the
year. It is very possible that it will
pass 8mil lifetime. The legs of this
game put most other hd games to shame
considering this doesn't have any
bundles that get counted towards sales.

aye Iveyboi, ever since the original
xbox had a really nice port of
morrowwind on it the xbox has had a fair
bit of Elder scrolls love, ontop of that
you have the DLC being released first
for the 360.... then a month or 2 later
on the pc and now it looks like not at
all on the ps3. so yeah good reason to
own this on the 360.
