RPG Games- The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim: (2011)


When was Skyrim developed by Bethesda Game Studios and released during the Fall of 2011 many people were amazed by the overall quality of this RPG title.  Skyrim had everything that one could ask for in a role playing game including an interesting storyline, numerous side quests, top notch visual display and much more.  Towards the beginning of the game players are given the option to select the race of their character.  As the game progresses players can learn all kinds of new skills that will help them throughout their journey. Some of the skills that players have in this game can be used for practical purposes involving the creation of items.  Not only can players increase their alchemy skills but can also craft their own armor in order to improve their ability as a blacksmith. The skill system in this game is arguably one of the most essential features in Skyrim. Each skill contained a level system which gradually increased when players utilized them throughout the game.


Speaking of skills the spell system in Skyrim was also impressive because players not only had a choice in terms of preference but they could also utilize two spells at once.  Learning and mastering these abilities comes in handy especially during the boss battles against foes such as: Karstaag, Miraak, Vythur, Odahving and Alduin.   Along with mastering various types of spells and developing new skills players can travel to over 300 different places while participating in over 200 quests throughout the game.  When it comes down to cinematic cutscenes & gameplay the Creation Engine does a fantastic job with providing a significant amount of detail in nearly every aspect of the game.   The landscape and character designs seemed close to flawless and the battles in this game were exciting  it allowed players to switch between first & third person view .
