Skyrim: Special Edition – Bethesda’s re-issue of its 2011 hit fantasy game now enhanced for current consoles and PC – is here, and that means it’s time to agonize over creating a custom character one more time before dancing off into that wide open world to tell your own stories, possibly as a cat.
But what stories should they be? You can easily spend hundreds of hours in this game and there’s no shortage of things to do. Sure, you could just pick a compass direction and walk until the sun comes up on Turdas – stop laughing, that is a real and normal name of a day of the week in this world. Or you could enjoy a more guided experience that doesn’t end with you stumbling into a swamp by revisiting these five highlights of Skyrim.
