Steam Game You Might Have Missed: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim


Looking for something to get on Steam? Having trouble sorting through everything that’s in the store? We have you covered through our Steam curator list, where we post recommendations of games we’ve reviewed here on DieHard GameFAN or have played through on our own time. Additionally, once a week we’ll be posting recommendations for games on our list, highlighting one of the many games we’ve played and loved. This week’s game is Skyrim, a game I still play when I’m in the mood to slay dragons and anger townsfolk by yelling at them.

Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Publisher: Bethesda
Developer: Bethesda
Genre: RPG
Release Date: 11/11/2011

As Ashe stated in his review, Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has a well crafted story and game world. When the game was released, there were plenty of bugs, but subsequent patches helped fix some of the issues, and modders took care of much of the rest. If you’ve done everything to do with the base game, fear not, because we’ve also seen three sets of DLC since then: Dawnguard, which allowed you to hunt Vampires, or become one; Hearthfire, which basically allows you to own more homes and do more customization with those homes, as well as adopting up to two children; and Dragonborn, which gives you access to Morrowind’s Solstheim and a storyline that puts you into contact with the very first Dragonborn, Miraak. If you’re itching for more storyline, definitely go for Dawnguard or Dragonborn (I personally liked Dragonborn more). I’ve put in about 180 hours into the game, and I know people who have put in far more than that. If you know what’s good for you, don’t start this game when you have a lot on your to-do list.
