I may take a look at this game once I clear out my existing backlog of games. Honestly this season of game releases is nothing short of astounding in terms of high quality titles. It really is saturated. I mean we got GoW3, Batman: AC, Uncharted 3, Zelda: Skyward Sword, MW3, BF3, Assassin's Creed: Revelations, Rage, Star Wars: TOR, and Skyrim!
Still, I hadn't really cared about Skyrim being released since Oblivion didn't exactly astound me, and Fallout 3/NV were interesting but never pulled me in (mainly due to all the bugs). However, once all the reviews came rolling in I figured as a gamer I'd be remiss to completely ignore it. Probably won't try it until 2012 though. Hell I still haven't beat AC: Brotherhood, nor have I finished up getting my Mass Effect 2 characters ready for Mass Effect 3.

My kids started playing Skyrim on Friday right after school. It has been impossible to pry them away for dinner or anything else. They have the PC version and have it up on the projector in the HT. The game is amazing on a 10' screen, and the game play is first rate. I'd be fighting for time on it myself if I wasn't a kind and caring Dad. :)

I liked Oblivion, still haven't gotten to the end yet. Can't wait to get the extra $$ to get Skyrim.

I may check out Skyrim on the PS3 if and when we get the extra money.

FWIW, my kids are still putting in lots of hours 3 weeks later. Son bought the PC version and we compared it to a friend's XBOX version. The PC version was notably crisper with better action and more detail. It looks astounding on the front projector at 120" :D

Here's a good video about how Skyrim is a real success story that bucks current corporate gaming trends. It is nsfw but really isn't very explicit.
