The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is the next installment in the award-winning Elder Scrolls series. Skyrim is the follow up to the 2006 Game of the Year, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and the next game from Bethesda Game Studios, creators of the 2008 Game of the Year, Fallout 3.
Not as good as Elder Scrolls IV, and other friends have confirmed this opinion. It's quite similar story-wise and the way it's set up, but it's shorter and less entertaining! I don't like this style of game anyway but I was surprised to hear that people who loved Oblivion weren't into this game at all.
