The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Summary

The Empire of Tamriel is on the edge. The High King of Skyrim has
been murdered.

Alliances form as claims to the throne are made. In the midst of this conflict, a far more dangerous, ancient evil is awakened. Dragons, long lost to the passages of the Elder Scrolls, have returned to Tamriel.

The future of Skyrim, even the Empire itself, hangs in the balance as they wait for the prophesized Dragonborn to come; a hero born with the power of The Voice, and the only one who can stand amongst the dragons.

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

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.
