It's a fine game, lots of choice and options.
Don't give it to young kids. Don't believe me? Someone gets their head chopped off, right before you, in the first 15 minutes before you precede to slaughter everyone and everything in your path until you escape. While there is a world worth exploring here, there's plenty of gore and fictional drugs and references to sex or sexual violence.
Lots of content though, so provided they are old enough, they probably won't be buying a new game for a while.
It's fine for Teens. Not any worse than Lord of the rings.
Ok so every thing in the officel review needs to be taken for granted. The game though dose talk about rape, though there never is any rape and the main character never rapes anyone. There is vilonce but nothing a young teen couldn't handle. If your kid can swallow Lord of the rings then they can absolutely handle this.

The original experience now with mods
Skyrim special edition is an open world rpg. In this game you can make choices which will change the story. The reason I say it is 12+ is because there are things like Mead which restore health, but the main reason is because of an optional quest line. The quest line involves you siding with either the stormcloaks or imperials. In this quest while playing stormcloaks you attack imperial bases multiple time and kill many people. If you are an imperial you defend against the stormcloaks also killing many soldiers, by the end of the battle your sword will be temporarily bloody.
