Hey fellas! Question for you MMA fans who double as gamer nerds (Because what else we gonna do waiting for the prelims to begin?)

SKYRIM!!! Worth buying?

I finished The Last Us sooner then expected & the next game I was gonna tackle was GTAV, which still isn't out for a couple months.. SO now I'm on the hunt for a legit adventure game that will keep my thumbs in shape for GTAV. I've been told a couple times that Skyrim was good & recently a legendary edition has been released which includes all of the expansions & bonus chit!

My buddy gets a boner just talking about the game & its many dragons! But he isn't exactly the best source for information.. so have any PGers ever play this game? Should I dish out the 70 bucks for the legendary edition or would a used copy of the 2011 version be good enough? MAN IM BORED!

Skyrim is well worth the buy unless you have a PS3. Unfortunately the PS3 can't handle the large sum of data that comes with Skyrim and usually crashes towards the middle of the game. Not saying everyone has this issue, but there's a shit ton of people who have. You'll have a better gaming expierence if you just stay away from the PS3 version, though.

Legendary edition would definately be a plus if you don't care about dishing out the extra cash. But you'll still have hours and hours of enjoyment with just the regular edition, so that's really up to you.

What system?
Skyrim on PS3 was so glitchy I never bought it. I heard the latest patch is good though. For as much heat as EA gets I can at least play their games when I buy them.
Betheseda on the other hand......

Elder scrolls took so long for me to do everything. Easily the game I've gotten my money's worth out of the most.

someone who has Skyrim on the PS3 here. It was glitchy and had low FPS during its first couple months. It is fine now besides occasional low FPS.

Skyrim is about as good as it gets if you like that style of game. I sunk hundreds of hours into it and I could still sink a few hundred more no problem. I'd still be playing it now but unfortunately I took an arrow to the knee and had to retire.

Dark Souls. You will be a different person when you play it, it's like an acid trip.

Skyrim's loading screens fuck me off too bad, sometimes I play it, but I can never keep it up for long as I'm usually pretty pressed for time.

I'm not usually into those types of games but I did like Skyrim. I borrowed it from a buddy like a year ago and it took a while to beat even though I didn't play too much but ya there's so much to do you'll be able to be distracted till GTA 5 comes out.
