Skyrim was a critical and commercial success for Bethesda, shipping over 7 million copies to retailers within the first week of release. Skyrim‘s main story revolves around the player character’s efforts to defeat Alduin, a Dragon who is prophesied to destroy the world.What makes Skyrim so successful, is the non-linear game flow where the player is able to postpone the main story line indefinitely. Although being a RPG game the player is free to explorer the world and compete side quests instead of the main quest.
The game may be played from a first-person perspective, viewing the game world through the eyes of their character, or from a third-person perspective, with the player character visible on the screen, and the camera able to be freely rotated.Player can explore the Skyrim world on foot or on horse or through any other means available in the game.The inclusion of Dragons in Skyrim affords a major influence on both story and gameplay. In the world, a variety of different Dragons are encountered either alone or in small groups. They are randomly-generated, meaning their numbers are infinite, and they can attack cities and towns at any time.Early in the main quest, it is discovered that the player character is Dragonborn, which allows the player to absorb the souls of dragons, in order to use powerful spells called Dragon Shouts or “Thu’um“. Each Shout contains three words, and the strength of the Shout will vary depending on how many words have been spoken. Twenty different Thu’um can be discovered by visiting “Word Walls” in dungeons, and they are unlocked for use by absorbing the souls of slain Dragons.
Weapons and magic are assigned to each hand, allowing for dual-wielding, and can be swapped out through a quick-access menu of favorite items. Shields can be used either to fend off enemy attacks and reduce the damage intake, or offensively through bashing attacks. Blunt, bladed and hacking weapons can be used in close combat and each have specific advantages and roles; as an example, the player can perform power attacks with each weapon. Magic can be used in the form of spells; each of the eighty-five spells has a different function, such as the regeneration of health or the depletion of enemy health.The bow and arrow may be utilized in long-range combat, but the bow can be used as a defensive melee weapon in close combat.
