For me Skyrim is a great game with a fantastic atmosphere, an amazing open world and a lot of ways you can change it through mods (beware, as far as I know modding is only possible on the PC). The only thing Skyrim lacks with is the story or the main quest, which isn't totally bad, but just not really presented that well and also too short. Though Skyrim may lack in things such as Story, though it is a great game you can have a lot of fun with it through sidequest, exploring the landscape or just reading books and doing a bit of research on the giant lore this game, like the entire ''The Elder Scrolls''- Series, has to offer.
