The Empire of Tamriel is on the edge. The High King of Skyrim has been murdered. Alliances form as claims to the throne are made. In the midst of this conflict, a far more dangerous, ancient evil is awakened. Dragons, long lost to the passages of the Elder Scrolls, have returned to Tamriel.

The future of Skyrim, even the Empire itself, hangs in the balance as they wait for the prophesized Dragonborn to come; a hero born with the power of The Voice, and the only one who can stand amongst the dragons.

The next chapter in the highly anticipated Elder Scrolls saga arrives from the makers of the 2006 and 2008 Games of the Year, Bethesda Game Studios. Skyrim reimagines and revolutionizes the open-world fantasy epic, bringing to life a complete virtual world open for you to explore any way you choose.

Skyrim's story of terrorizing dragons is very unoriginal and overused out of a majority medieval fantasy stories as it's been done many times before with minor differences.

I remember reading something about Bethesda losing their original story writer so whomever they had as the replacement was surely an amateur who couldn't even think of anything very creative which hasn't been done many times before, otherwise it's because they wanted an easier to create story to cut development time a little.

I can understand bringing back dragons for monster variety but not at the expense of a original story, Daggerfall Morrowind and yes even Oblivion had more original stories compared to Skyrim's, I haven't played Arena so I can't comment on it.

I don't mind if you wish to vote me down, I am entitled to express my opinion just the same as every one else is. :)

Oblivion had a worst story that centered on a deus ex machina at the end. It's at that point that you realize you were always an errand boy for Martin the true hero of the story. At least in Skyrim's you are the main hero and defeat the main boss by your own hand just like in Morrowind.

That being said, the main stories have never been a strong spot in the Elder Scrolls except maybe for Morrowind.

Nah, Skyrim's story is worse if you ask me since it focuses on the ol' cliche unoriginal dragon slaying story just like many older medieval fantasy stoies, Oblivion's story at least had some originality over Skyrim's, but Morrowind and Daggerfall had the most original stories in the entire TES franchise.

You may be correct in what you write but more important, Dragons are a very small part of The Elder Scrolls V ( Skyrim 5 ) Some quests far overshadow the dragon quests. It has become a very popular platform for modders and is still going strong after 3 years. Few games can achieve that status.

Yeah, because any other quest overshadows an impending apocalypse.

Skyrim is what Elder Scrolls is supposed to be. Gone is the flowery sunshine of Cyrodiil, and instead we get cold, barren Skyrim with snowstorms and people and environments that could really fit into the Middle Ages or a natural Fantasy World. As a person who's been modding ES since Morrowind and playing since DAggerfall in 1996, I can only see this game as a natural and excellent heir to the series. Take it from me - Skyrim is Greatness!

Some may claim I'm trolling, but I'm not. I seriously didn't find much entertainment value in Skyrim, and I'm glad that I was playing it on loan rather than having actually bought it. It's Oblivion with a new coat of paint and some better conversation bits. It still doesn't have much of a main story, and the sword play is still questionable at best (Kotaku's one writer said the same thing a few weeks ago). I could go on -- but I think this'll probably get voted down anyway so what's the point? Also…
