Skyrim becomes first western game to get Famitsu 40/40

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is the first western title to get a full score from Famitsu. The incredible Bethesda open-world RPG is the 17th game in the publication's 25 year history to get a 40/40 in the magazine's latest issue, according to this Japanese site via a tweet from RPGSite's US Editor, Erren Van Duine. Still not enough indication it's not going to sweep every game of the year award on the planet, though (note: of course it will). Go nuts, Japanese-reading massive.
