RPG OF THE YEAR 2011

I used to be good at RPGs, but then I took an arrow to the knee ...

I digress, many would agree that The Elder Scrolls games have been a phenomenon in this console generation. Bethesda has through this series managed to elevate the Role Playing genre on many technical levels and make it more palatable/accessible to a much wider audience than ever before. Skyrim takes place two hundred years after the events of Oblivion, and it has dragons. I could go on about all the improvements to the graphics, combat, storytelling and play mechanics, but ... come on ... DRAGONS!

If massive sales, a passionate fan-base and wild critical acclaim are anything to be believed, this category was never a contest.

Skyrim charged in and cast "FUS RO DAH" on the competition!
