I love Skyrim. It’s hands down the best game I’ve ever played. But, I LOVE sword and sorcery/fantasy games. As for your kids, there are definitely some adult themes and gore. You’ll probably want to give it a test run before you let them play (I don’t have kids, but I assume this is what parents do?).
Nowadays I usually download games or use Amazon, but I still like going into GameStop. Old habits, I guess.
Did you manage to preorder a Switch!?!? Lucky bastard. Breath of Wild looks amazing.
