Bethesda won Studio of the Year and Skyrim won Game of the Year at the most recent VGAs. When the following stats were compiled, it's safe to assume that even more celebration commenced. Firstly, Skyrim became the fastest selling game on Steam in history, which is a major retailer for PC gaming. This alongside console sales, helped The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim hit its second achievement of 10 million copies sold, which for an RPG is something to be proud of. Then, more details were released about the games overall reception. Skyrim has won 12 Game of the Year awards from various events throughout the world, all whilst earning over 200 perfect review scores. The online tracking service, Raptr, reported that it has been the most played game of the year intheir community, which is a lot of people. As far as earnings go, it has gone over the $650 million mark, which is very impressive for a game that isn't one of the widely popular franchises such as Halo, Gears of War and Call of Duty. Perhaps the most impressive fact of all however comes straight from Japan. In the magazine Famitsu, for the first time ever in its 25 years of publishing, a western-developed game got the full 40/40, and its also the 17th game to earn that score in their history. With all these facts, it's clear to see how Bethesda deserved the awards they have won.
