A good video game setting can be a wondrous thing. As technology has advanced and games have become bigger and more expansive, gaming worlds have become a feature that can make or break the experience for the players.

Many video game reviews even save some of their best plaudits for gaming worlds, and the critical treatment of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim offers the perfect example of just how important these can be to the overall experience.
