newtmonkey Posted December 20, 2022 Share Posted December 20, 2022 (edited) The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (PC) I finally completed this for the first time last night. I played the original version, because I prefer its muted color pallete versus the more colorful graphics of Special Edition. I used two mods: SkyUI (simply crucial imo if playing with mouse and keyboard) and some mod that shows roads on the in-game map. It has a massive game with a ton of content, but I unfortunately found it all to be as wide as an ocean but as deep as a puddle. The extremely linear dungeons, boring townspeople with just a couple lines of dialog, simple quests, and level-scaled equipment nearly killed the game for me. It felt like I had experienced essentially everything the game had to offer, after only 5-10 hours. I felt no drive to do much of the optional content (just a few of the imperial faction quests) or even the DLCs, and ended up completing the main quest in just 18 hours total. Having said that, something about Skyrim just works. It's got a very fitting soundtrack and amazing atmosphere. I love the snowstorms in this game. And the game's simplicity works in its favor; there is not anything deep about Skyrim's many systems, but they all work, and they fit together well.
