The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

So how much do you like dragons? Your answer is likely to determine how you feel about Skyrim. Not that dragon-slaying is the game's sole activity – in fact there's an overwhelming array of things to do in Bethesda's meticulously modelled virtual continent, from plotting political coups to stewing venison. In previous Elder Scrolls titles, the price paid for this freedom was some rather homely visuals and a slew of glitches. Here, while the bugs are still in evidence, the graphics are often beautiful, increasing the immersion factor considerably – stalking the foothills at dusk amid flurrying snow, it is hard to suppress a shiver.
