What makes Skyrim special?

Let's try to keep it civil. Because I am honestly confused.

Why is everyone saying that Skyrim will be GOTY 2011 in the face of its competition?

It can't be the developer's history. Since every Bethesda game I've ever tried were poorly made and repetitive. And I can't find much info on it.

So, board. What's special about Skyrim?

Bethesda is a well respected game company in the RPG community, renown for their amazing open worlds with exquisite beauty.

I guess I can get behind that.

Are there any cool features announced thus far?

Apparently it's suppose to match quests to your style of gaming, and npc are replaceable.

For me its about the freedom to interact with and alter a very realistic world. When I play I feel as if the only connection to earth is the controller I'm using. I like that.

That is the best thing I've seen all day.

Even though this day just started one hour ago where I live.
