Skyrim is the first Western game to get Famitsu’s 40/40

As if Skyrim‘s list of achievements needed to be longer, the latest Elder Scrolls has managed to accomplish something previously unseen in this industry — it’s the first Western game to score Famitsu‘s perfect 40/40 review score. 

The game is the first Western RPG to really capture Japanese attention, and Famitsu‘s score is perfectly reflective of that. It has become the seventeenth game overall to attain the coveted 40/40, joining such Japanese titles as The Ocarina of Time, Vagrant Story, and Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots

I’ll be honest though. This story was just an excuse to post another Cicero header image.
