Because it's cheap to purchase and any computer can run it? Keep in mind while playing, accuracy and successful magic casting is determined my many factors. Melee accuracy is affected by your agility, your skill level with the weapon you're using, your stamina, your luck, your opponents agility, stamina and luck, if you have extra attack added to you by spell effects (ie. being born under the warrior sign) and how much "sanctuary" the opponent has added by spell effect. Magick is determined by your willpower, intelligence, magic school skill level, stamina, luck and how much willpower, spell resistance, spell reflect, stamina and luck your opponent has. The game operates on old systems of calculations and dice rolls so combat is very old school if that takes your fancy. If you love the Elder Scrolls series, then this game is a piece of history for the franchise as it is the first real 3d open world rendition of an Elder Scrolls game.
