That's flamebait right there - both games are brilliant in there own right and Skyrim deserves no "shame." Tw2 has better graphics and a real story/characters, Skyrim has... Skyrim. The open-world makes the game, and it's really something to marvel at. For sheer atmosphere, though, nothing beats your first arrival in Flotsam. That town should go down in RPG history, imo, as one of the most immersive and perfectly atmospheric environments in any video game ever. I've beaten Tw2 enough times to be done with it, but I still load up a save in Flotsam and just wander around for the fun of it.
