The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is one of the best role-playing games on multiple platforms. Since its release in 2011, Skyrim has been ported to all major home consoles, and it runs very well on all of these. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is available on Nintendo Switch, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. The game is just as enjoyable on every one of these platforms. Skyrim is one of the few modern games to ship with cheat codes, and we spent some time playing around with these. We don't recommend using cheat codes in Skyrim as it essentially breaks any sense of progression or achievements in the game. However, if you still want to know which Skyrim cheats are the best, read on.
