I am not the biggest PS3 game player or even a fan of the Elder Scrolls Games in general. I tried Skyrim and it had me completely hooked! It has so many different ways you can customize your character whether you want to be an Orcish heavy armor war machine or a Wood Elf archer or a Thalmor Mage.
The possibilities are practically endless. This game has the best graphics I have ever seen in a video game, everything looks almost like a real life picture. I love the huge amount of choice and freedom in this game, in a lot of the quests the entire outcome of a city can be changed by one simple choice during the quest. The whole game starts out with you, a thief, a Stormcloak warrior, and the leader of the Stormcloaks, Jarl Ulfric Stormcloak of Windhelm being caught in a ambush near the border of Skyrim. You are all sent off to a small Imperial Fort called Helgen were they try to execute you all.
The story takes a whole new twist and you are sent off into the land of Skyrim rip roaring for adventure and conquest. From there you can basically go wherever and do whatever you please. I know I especially enjoyed becoming a member of the Dark Brotherhood and the Thieves Guild but you'll just have to play to find out what you like the most.
