Fight a Dragon 1 of 8

November 8, 2011 - It seemed like an eternity, but the long wait is finally over. 'The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim' finally releases on 11/11/11, and it's an epic adventure may very well be the game of the year. You should not question whether or not to buy this game (because you most definitely should), but instead you should be deciding what to do first.

The good news is that doing just about anything in the world of Skyrim provides a rich and rewarding experience. Whether you're just wandering around in the wilderness or completing the main questline, Skyrim is fun and immersive. However, this list of awesome things to do in will help you along your way to your own unique adventure.

First up is fighting a dragon. It's a bit obvious, but dragons are the thing that got us excited about this game in the first place. Not only can these battles take place at any time in the wild, but each one is a difficult, wild ride that can end in your demise. If you manage to defeat one of these massive beasts, you'll gain a ton of experience and new abilities.
