GAME'D: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Where to begin on a game as huge as 'The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim'? To put things in perspective, I've mined over 50 hours into my level 36 Breton warrior, specializing in Smiting, Destruction, One-Handed Combat, Lockpicking, and Conjuration. I am the Harbringer of the Companions in Whiterun, and the Arch-Mage of the College of Winterhold. I've unified Skyrim under the banner of the Imperials, helped countless NPCs on quests great and small.
I wear Daedric Armor and have an Ebony Mace that deals 57 points of damage per hit, not including Shock/Stamina damage. And yet, I've yet to complete the main quest- there's just too much to wonder at in the world of Skyrim.
From tip of the Throat of The World to the swamps that surround the mountainous city of Solitude, Skyrim is an immense game in scope and scale, with plenty of distractions around you. A chance conversation with a random NPC can lead you to on an epic side quest that in a lesser game could be its main storyline, and a leisurely sojourn can become a fight for your life, should you run across a giant in a bad mood. The wanderlust you'll experience in this game is unparalleled, and is definitely the biggest selling point of the game- the world of Skyrim is fully realized and just waiting for you to carve out your own story.
