Skyrim Special Edition is a massive game. It comes with all of the Skyrim DLC, it features a growing list of mods for all three platforms, and it offers a mind-boggling number of characters to meet, dungeons to crawl and items to pickup. Skyrim Special Edition can, and probably will, eat up a lot of your time.

While some people can invest many hours each week, others are strapped for time. If you’re busy during the week you might be limited to Skyrim on the weekends. That shouldn’t make the game any less enjoyable though.

As is the case with Fallout 4, there’s no wrong way to play Skyrim. You can tackle quests, explore dungeons and explore Tamriel at your leisure. That said, there are some ways to maximize the limited time you spend with the game.

These are the strategies we use to get the most out of the game and they should come in handy if you’re feeling anxious or if you’re looking to get the most out of every single game session.

Pick a Smart Place to Stop

Pick a Smart Place to Stop

Once it's time to call it quits you'll want to pick a smart place to end your current game. 

Before you quit out of Skyrim Special Edition and turn off your system, we recommend traveling to the nearest town (Whiterun, somewhere else you call home) to sell goods you don't need and store the items you want to keep.

This way you won't have to waste 10-15 minutes selling and storing your items the next time you play. You'll be prepared to head out into the world.

We also recommend making a note of what it was you were doing the last time you were playing. We usually jot down a quick note on our phone's notepad. 

If you typically put a few days between game sessions it's easy to lose track of what you were doing the last time you fired the game up. A short little note will help refresh your memory and get you on track.
