Can anyone tell me the actual song title from this?  Just done playing for the night of skyrim and remembered this beautiful video.  Please let me know! Thanks.

@Strigidae (and everyone bashing him) First, did you SEE the amount of work they put into Skyrim?! They took YEARS and created the largest, most realized gaming world probably ever, recorded countless hours of top-notch voice work, created an original orchestral score, completely redid the graphics engine, provide hundreds of hours of gameplay, etc. It's perhaps the most engrossing game I've ever played. And you call them lazy/talentless profit seekers?! Are you insane?? Comments like that are best aimed at the Maddens of the world. Still, there are two things I have to agree on. 1) This is minor, but you should be able to fight on horseback, or at least shoot arrows at deer or something. 2) The association with Steam/ persistent internet connection. I don't care if it's a piracy thing. FIGURE it out, devs. A truly single player game like this shouldn't need to be connected to the freakin' internet at all times.

80 hours into it, at level 65, and am still having fun. You get tired of shooting enemies with arrows, get a battleaxe and mow them down. Too much bloodshed? level up your destruction spells and burn you foe to a crisp. Down with magic? grab a mace and bash someone's head in. Want a challenge? sneak your way passed everyone. I play every type of game, in my ps3 I have Skyrim, and Saint Row The Third, on my 360 I have Assassins Creed Revelations, and Battlefield 3, and on WII I have Legend of Zelda. And I keep coming back to Skyrim. To each their own, for you Call of Duty players, have fun and enjoy your game it's a good one, I know us Skyrim players are having a blast and will continue too.

@strigidae So you hate the game because you can't lock onto the person you are trying to kill? Man, get off games for good, go play Call of Duty where the game literally aims for you. Scrub.

@strigidae Makes me laugh, such little tiny complaints that dont make that much of a difference... I wonder if his boyfriend can even please him O.o

Wow. Cool music and the time lapse is beautiful. Is it just me, or does Skyrim seem like a more beautiful place to live than our world today. I mean, except for getting gnawed by a dragon.

Skyrim is all about walri! @Strigidae I don't agree with you but I approve of your anger!

@SadhuBaba Oh yeah, for sure they should've added it in, but it's such a minor omission that it shouldn't cause so much frustration for anyone, like it has with Strigidae.

@Strigidae Oh, wow. Someone seems to have something lodged up somewhere painful.

Your complaints are so minor, yet you get so worked up over them. Ooo, there's no target-lock; boo-hoo, cry because you can't beat up a mythical creature without auto-aim. And not being able to block/parry while dual-wielding? That's such a petty thing to get upset over. And why wouldn't you take a little damage while blocking? Up your block skill, fool. It's more realistic to actually get more skilled in blocking to eventually be practically invincible when you block rather than being invincible when blocking right at the start.

And your hate towards Steam is unnecessary. Go back under whatever rock you crawled out of; your terrible opinions and horribly petty complaints are not wanted here.

Man I'm so chuffed... this cr@p is the stuff that motivates honest consumers to go 'Jack Sparrow' on everyone. Why should everyone suffer because some people are too lazy/brainless to search for updates for their games, themselves (amongst many unnecessary reasons for Steam). Caution to those inconsiderate enough to deem this post as some attention seeking rant. Some countries don't have the luxury of hi-speed internet connection like the U.S.. We all remember what happened to car companies that started catering only for those able to afford their large, fuel guzzling, unnecessary SUV's. I don't care what any of you fanboys say, whom some of ya'll I suspect to be associated in someway with Bethe$da/$team. Still can't fight on horseback (LOL)? Can't block/parry, while wielding dual swords (LOL)? Somehow the AI obviously locks easily on my character, when performing power attacks, but there is no system for the player to lock on to the AI. And they have some nerve to claim they attempt to create realistic games, when players recieve damage even when blocking (LOL)... come on. It's a sad tale regarding what's happening to the industry... even with all the tech advances and, finally, a market to fuel game development, we still get talentless/profit-seeking game developers. Just didn't see Bethe$da being one of those. I just really pray to some deity, of games, that any future releases, by any developer, is kept away from Steam's rancid, contagiious, putrid hands.

Skyrim is in my opinion the best rpg released so far, engaging, dramatic, at times tense, but no matter what you are doing, if thats making armour, stealing everything thats not nailed down, reading books, or slaying dragons, you are having fun because the world of Skyrim is so convincing. All bugs aside, this game is an 11/10

BryanParksSuper : GoW3 or Gear Solid 4 isn't an adventured game just fight, fight. Skyrim you can relax your mind and if you don't want to do the mission its okay, also you can stay at house if you want, GOW3 can't compared with this game.

BryanParksSuper : Who cares about grapichs, What we need a real-true life, and Skyrim is the real-true life adeventured, SKYRIM FTW NO GAMES CAN BEATS THIS GAME, NEVER !

Skyrim isn't that great graphically. It doesn't even compare to God of War 3 or Metal Gear Solid 4.

@IanFrederick91 totally agree. just because i watch one specific video, doesn't mean i'm down for an endless session of watching every random video gamespot has ever thrown up. if i want to watch another video, i'll click on it.

one thing and probably the only thing i hate about gamespot is when videos end and then i go to look at the comments and then the page skips to the next video and i have to go back to find the comment...

@jookiyaya waisting? I really hate it when people call gaming waste of time (your cool though :D you just missunderstanded) .... Think about it. Why do we even work? That's right to get money, but what do we get money for? That's right to buy things we like and enjoy. Gaming is one of them so to hell with people calling it a waste. With anything that you have fun with is never a waste of time, that's the way I look at it. But on the subject of Skyrim. The game honestly is the best game I have ever played. :D It's been over 4 years since I have been so immersed and excited about a game.

This game is so incredible I have to force myself not to play this game because I get too immersed in it, and I end up wasting hours and HOURS....

This has NOT been a shameless exploit of GameSpot's solitary Scottish employee. Excellent work @cameronrobinson
