Big fan of The Elder Scrolls games but they have their own board so you'll probably have better luck talking with others about Skyrim there:
Its great,its endless and Im taking a break from it right now.Once you are playing it its hard to put down and when you look at the clock you see 6-8 hours go by pretty fast. It seems like after 3-4 hours you are just getting somewhere in a questline. And you always have to store things,create things.
its great. But since ps3 cant get their ***bleep** together and get the downloadable content for it , i quit and bought it for xbox. Seeems Xbox is simply a superior company. My rerccomendation is to drop ps3 and get an xbox.
