Skyrim is an action roleplaying video game that is the fifth game in the Elder Scrolls series by Bethesda Softworks LLC. It takes place in the province of Skyrim in Tamriel 200 years after the Oblivision crisis. As an ancient home to the Nords, it's landscape is vast, housing many small villages and several cities. However, something wicked is coming on the horizon...

You are caught while crossing the border and brought to Helgen to be executed. As you lay your head on the chopping block, a large black dragon swoops down and let's out a roar after landing high on a stone wall. In the confusion and chaos, you must decide who to follow either the rebels, known as Stormcloaks, or one of the Imperial soldiers that had read off the names of the prisoners that were being sent to the chopping block.

After a confrontation with a dragon, you learn later that you are a Dragonborn, the very one who has been foretold that they will defeat Alduin and his allies.

All right, enough of that dramatic stuff. When my friend showed me this game a month or so before it was released, I wanted it so much. A game that has dragons, open world and I get to build my character ANY way I wish? Hell yes! While I haven't beaten the entirety of it with all the DLC, and having defeated Alduin already, I am never bored of this game because I come up with new characters. Why? Because there's so much to do. You can join the royal guard, stormcloaks, become part of the assassin group known as Dark Brotherhood, Thieves Guild, and all of that good stuff. I could kill everyone if I so wished and get a bounty on my head.

You can be anyone. Question is...are you up for it? Warning: Your life may disappear and all academics will drop if you are very bad at keeping activities balanced.
