Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is the most popular game in the Elder Scrolls series created by Bethesda and originally released in 2011.
Skyrim is set in the same world as all the other Elder Scrolls games. It is about 201 years after the events of Oblivion taking place in Skyrim. Skyrim is a more Nordic providence compared to Oblivion and in the game there is a civil war going on between the Stormcloaks, native Nordics, and the Imperial Legion.
You as the player are a Dragonborn, a mortal with the soul and power of a dragon. You find out after being almost executed, but interrupted by the return of Alduin, the primary antagonist, a dragon that wants to destroy and consume the world. The main quest as the Dragonborn is to find and kill all of the revived dragons. Also, to kill Alduin and prevent the destruction of the world.
Of course one of the main features of the game that everyone loves is fighting the dragons and learning their Shouts, the power of the dragons, but there are many other side quests and guilds you can explore. You can even choose a side in the civil war and help fight for the Stormcloaks or the Imperials.
Even though Skyrim is over 8 years old by now people are still playing and enjoying the game. The main source behind that is modding community. There are insane mods that you can find and add to your game from making dragons into Thomas the Tank Engine, to getting customized player’s houses or cities, to event mods that are practically DLCs for the game and has as much content as the main game itself.
Skyrim is available for the PC, Playstation 3 and 4, Xbox 360 and One, and the Switch
