Not only are the faces in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim the most gorgeous the series has ever seen, they're also the most customizable. Check out 20 variations of each of the game's 10 races and see for yourself.

Since the dawn of The Elder Scrolls, creating a character has been an exercise in crafting a hero that's not quite as ugly as every other character in the game, generally a losing proposition. Not so with Skyrim, where the faces are as pretty or purposefully hideous as you want them to be. I've a feeling I'll be spending quite a lot of time in the character builder once Skyrim hits later this year.

I just don't see how someone can be totally immersed in such an epic game while playing as a big cat or a lizard. When I play these games I spend an hour or more trying to make them look like me. It helps me get into the game world.
