Best Game Ever!

Summary: Honestly, before I purchased this astounding game, I was one of those gamers who would just play Call of Duty and sub par games like it. I settled for games like this and ventured no farther. But when I first saw the preview for Skyrim, I knew this game was something different. The minute I bought it and began playing only confirmed my thoughts. The story was of one I have never seen before.
Summary: Unfortunately for me I have damaged my game to the point where I can not even play anymore. If you aren't careful with how you install the mods you will screw your game up. There is a guy on YouTube called gopher, and he shows step by step how to install mods. I highly recommend you watch his videos because they help A LOT. That being said if you have to mod a game to 'make it better', or whatever your reasons then it probably is not worth your time or effort.
Summary: If you are asking yourself if you want to get this you really only need to know 2 things: can my system run this program (very important) do I have 300 hours of my life to give away. If you answered no to either of these you might consider other forms of entertainment. Skyrim is great, it is a solid game, but it will also suck you away from most other things you could (or need to be doing).
Summary: When I first heard about the Dragonborn DLC, i heard it was on Hearthfire, so my view of it might be a little judgmental. While a pretty superfluous DLC too begin with(no story line quest), it adds another element of customization, allowing you to build your own house in three of the holds of Skyrim (Winterhold, Morthal(might be wrong on that one) and Falkreath), where normally a house isn't available even after you become a thane of the hold.
Summary: Had to load Steam in order to play the game. I'd never encountered this before, so I thought at first this was an online platform so I could launch the game from the Cloud or something similar. Turned out I was wrong. Every time I started the game, Steam would download updates and some bloatware. I'd later delete the bloatware, but next time I started Skyrim, the bloatware was back!
