Skyrim currently has a 96 on metacritic. Check out this great review from Rock Paper Shotgun.
Also, Todd Howard claims that Skyrim has infinite quests.
Yep. 96 out of 52 reviews for the 360. 93 out of 12 reviews for PS3 (wtf?). 96 out of 5 reviews for PC.
I'm prepared to lose my life to this game, hopefully tomorrow.
'Cos I find The Elder Scrolls boring. Deal with it.
After a week of deciding whether or not to get it, I'm going to get it for the midnight release. Hope it's good.

I think Oblivion broke this series for me. Don't get me wrong; the game wasn't bad, but it just made me lose interest in the Elder Scrolls-type RPG after feeding 300 hours into it. The only RPG I'll be playing is World of Warcraft, until I decide that I really want Skyrim, but right now, I'm disinterested.
Anyways I plan on getting the game sometime in late 2012, simply don't have money right now for Skyrim and plus too many games come out in early 2012. Vita is gonna burn a hole in my wallet. T_T
That said I really look forward to the PC version and the mod they will have when I finally get the game.
Good god, I underestimated this game. My GameStop ran out of copies by 1pm. Now I have to wait until tomorrow.

No lie, I pretty much spent 80% of today playing that game. It is a HUGE improvement over Oblivion. The crafting alone has me hooked although I've always been a sucker for smithing. One thing you should know is that this game is much closer to the Fallout series than it is Oblivion (aside from the obvious stuff of course)
The Fros arbok in town!
