Is Skyrim still a good investiment?
I've been thinking on buying skyrim soon. My question is: is Skyrim still being updated or the developers moved on?

They have moved on; but you'll still get 1,000+ hours out of the game

Skyrim itself, hasn't been updated in goodness knows how long. That being said, it has a great Modding Community in the Nexus, and also has the Steam Workshop for Mods. I prefer the Nexus though. Many of these Mods help make the game come to life, if that's what you're looking for in your question.

Oh, thats sad to know. I've always wanted to buy skyrim, and is sad to know that the developers stoped updating it. Mods are good but not great in my oppinion, i wanted something official. Developers moved on to some other game Or they are just making another update like downguard or dragonborn?

The last of the official updates and DLC have been released for Skyrim, but the modding community (who actually put out better DLC imo) are still putting out great content and will be for some time.

I'm still waiting on the DB and DG dlc to be on sale cheaply because I don't think either look very good, and because hearthfire was crap.

I doubt you'll see any further DLC's, but it could happen. However, the Modding Community is fantastic to make the game they way you want to experience it, and/or see it. Many of us have quite a few hundred hours of play-time in this game, and others have thousands. So you'll have to judge for yourself.

So, 1000h + gamplay with skyrim, counting with dragonborn and downguard updates or skyrim alone?

Remember, Skyrim is a single player game, so there is only so much attention developers give to such games before they move on.
In it's current state it is very good; if you decide to not grab it because of this then you are truly missing out.

Don't really know why you would want them to still be working on it, as it is a perfectly good game in and of itself. It has easily more than 200 hours worth of content.

I don't know, i don't want to get bored of it. Thats why i wanted them to update it. But if you say you can play about 200h of new content, it might worth it.

But when you say that, you mean Theskyrim alone or the DLC's like dragonborn or downguard?

Cant say yes but...For me I played for about 3 years starting over again a couple wrond here. That came out 2011. Yesterday I bought Skyrim Premium Edition from 2012...It´s far from other PC-games. The game are absolut the best: the plot, freedom to go where you and explore this fantastic wonderful world. You level up and get better armor or weapon. Take a buitful follower go with you. She can masters swords or bows or magic. This is only the begining. Lush nature, waterfalls, keeps and caves to check in. But on you toes. All are hebitants is good. Dragorns, Witches, bandits, evil magics and a lot to explore. Live another life...Get it on... you will not regret. HAVE FUN!!!

CHEERS, Aragorn

Skyrim is worth it by a ton.

I have already done 600+ hours across PS3 and PC and im still finding new stuff and having fun. The modding community is strong even if it is filled with perves.

Well, you guys made me want to get it. I'll buy it tomorrow. Btw, just to make sure it will run well and don't need to upgrade anything, i have a Lenovo g500s with 8gb ram, intel core i7, nvidia GT 720M-1gb. Is that enough to run skyrim in a decent quality?

I have 8gb ram and I run at max with HD textures. No FPS lag.

But the ram isn't everything to run it well, right?
