Not only is Skyrim
considered to be a great game here in the United States, but the rest of the world seems to like it too. As a matter of fact, Japan seems to think that it is perfect, at least the staff at Famitsu does.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has done something that no other western-developed game has ever done: earn a perfect 40 score from Japan’s Famitsu magazine. If you are familiar with the magazine and their traditionally critical scoring system, this is a feat that should rank among the tops of the game’s awards and honors.
Congrats to Bethesda and the entire staff who made the game!
