Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition for PlayStation 4
The Elder Scrolls series has a mile long pedigree full of acclaim and praise, but perhaps no title in the series is quite as beloved as Skyrim. Initially released in 2011 (yes, it really has been that long!), Skyrim set the bar ever higher for the open sandbox genre in ways that pushed then-current technology to it's limits- combined with a gripping narrative to follow should players choose to do so, several metric tonnes of additional side quests or events off the beaten track, and that high fantasy aesthetic that gamers have craved for a great many years. This edition of Bethesda's beloved game is fully remastered, with a graphical upgrade befitting of modern console capabilities, and contains all three of the prior released DLC campaigns- Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn- on disc from the get go. It also features modding capability integrated into the game directly, bringing it in line with the PC release (which is known for fostering an active and dedicated modding community).
