Is the game worth buying now?

Skyrim is a wonderful game, even without DLC, if you think it's not even worth 20 bucks you either need to get a job or you have no conception of what a game is worth.

For the amount of playability the game gives plus the amount of effort the developers have put in would make me think that it's original asking price was no where near unreasonable.

No. Join the thieves guild and steal a copy.

Skyrim can not be bought nor can it be played, Skyrim can only be experienced by one whom is willing to dragonshout.

If possible I would suggest getting the pc version as this allows you to use mods and also console commands (if a quest stuffs up). Also DLC wise I wasn't that impressed with dawnguard (it was lengthy just the vampire powers were abit overrated) hearthfire is essentially a new house so it is worth the cheap price but you can get the same or better with mods.

I personally got the Xbox360 version on launch and enjoyed the hell out of it (I have all achievments including DLC ones). A month or two ago I bought pc version for cheap and it added a whole new life to the game with some great new quest mods like Moonpath to Elswyr.

You do realize these are 360 dragonshouts?

No. A year ago, it was a real bargain. Now, it's all worn out. It might work better now and have DLC and stuff, but it's old. In game years, it's like ancient.

I don't really need a sarcasm tag here, do I? Maybe a snarky remark about ridiculous questions?

I got it for free from my brother who found he wasn't so interested in it - but the DLC already adding up to like 35$ is a reminder of why I usually wait until far after a game is released and get it's GOTY edition for 30-40$ or a cheap copy.

Usually if I really love a series I'll grab a new copy on release but I like playing way too many games and too many genres to spend full price on everything.

Really if you've been able to hold out this long I'd say wait for a GOTY/Ultimate edition so you don't spend absurd amounts of money on the DLC like I am. Because unfortunately the base game isn't as good as it could be, but after Dawnguard and Hearthfire (to say nothing of how epic Dragonborn looks) it's a great game and if you can wait to get a version which will include the DLC, it will definitely be worth the money. But if you absolutely MUST have it now I'd say look at your local pawn shops first to see if you can't find a copy for around $10-$15 which to me would be a reasonable price for the base game.


lol its still around 60 bucks man. you get THAT much trade in at your local GameSh*tStop
