One of the best RPGs ever made,
This review is from: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Legendary Edition, XBOX 360 (Video Game)
I traded in my old Skyrim for the new Legendary Edition. I prefer to have the game with the latest patches along with all of the released DLCs on disc just in case my Xbox 360 crashes. It took me only about 10 minutes to install all 3 DLCs, much faster than downloading and installing them. The game does not come with a manual but a link to download it is provided. A large foldable paper map of Skyrim and a button layout pamphlet is included. I highly recommend the Legendary Edition especially if you have limited or no internet access and do not have the expansions already.
This version of Skyrim can be played on a 4GB Xbox 360 console but you will not be able to play the expansions because those require a hard drive to install to.
This game does have a higher than average glitch rate but it is also one of the most ambitious games ever made. I have not noticed any difference in the frequency or severity of the glitches compared to the regular version (with patches). I have played for about 300 hours so far since I purchased the Legendary Edition on June 4th and I have not had any quest breaking or game stopping glitches. I got an occasional freeze (only 3 in the 300 hours I played), some graphical glitches such as flying creatures and floating furniture, and some minor miscellaneous glitches such as voices not matching mouth movement or various weapons not making contact with enemies. None of these issues bothered me too much and in fact some were quite hilarious. I was still able to enjoy every minute of playtime except for the incredibly long load times, which can't be helped due to console limitations.
The expansions add many hours of entertainment. I completed Dawnguard (all quests) in about 20 hours or so and Dragonborn (most quests) took over 25 hours to finish. If you are an achievement hunter you will spend even more time with the expansions.

I can relate, I got batman arkham city GOTY and gave my old version to one of my friends, and it was totally worth it!

So we still have to download the DLC? Does it not come on the disc?

"GOTY" edition disks are basically the "complete" edition of a game, playable right out of the box with all of the expansions and patches included, no internet connection required. You're calling people dumb for preferring a functional, extensive package that they own and have access to at all times compared to relying on a stable internet connection and the accessibility of XBL (for your product to operate correctly), one of which will be eventually discontinued in the future. You will be screwed when that happens, not us.
