Why is it that people legitimately, unironically love Skyrim so much for it to be GOAT? PCGamer has it at the #1 RPG of all time, not to mention all the high ratings and acclaim it has received from both critics and fans.
The world is interesting, the combat is a huge improvement from previous elder scrolls, You can build many different types of characters, lots of replayablity, the list goes on. I loved skyrim.
you know the difficulty slider is just a setting for how tedious you want the game to be right
it's not actually hard, especially since you can bypass the difficulty slider with companions/summons
