Usually, I don’t like writing about a game I haven’t completed yet, but I just can’t resist talking about Skyrim and.. well, I’m procrastinating. I’m only 30-something hours into the game and a measly level 21, and I’ve barely touched the main story quest! It’s glorious to play such an immensely deep game. And when I say deep, I mean it’s HUGE! The back stories!! The cities!! The locations!! It’s just so deep.
What you’re about to read probably isn’t anything you haven’t heard before. Probably. Skyrim’s been out for so long everyone’s had something to say about. Even those who haven’t played it yet. “Oh it’s rubbish because it’s too long and there’s too much to do so I’m not going to play it.” You won’t believe the amount of times I’ve heard people say this to me.. and then turn around and moan they don’t get enough time value out of a game! Umm.. hello?! There’s never nothing to do in Skyrim! I remember daydreaming about the 300+ hours I would be spending fighting dragons. Which yeah.. can be daunting. But who cares, it’s Skyrim. (OK, another thing worth noting about this is it’s probably going to be really biased.) I don’t think I’ve ever once thought “Oh, I don’t think I’ll play Skyrim because there’s just too much to do.” Why? 1) It’s by Bethesda who can do no wrong in my eyes. 2) It’s an Elder Scrolls and I deeply love Oblivion. 3) It’s a fantasy RPG which lets me wave a sword around and shout really loudly at people. So the spending-too-much-time-on-a-game thing has never bothered me. Heck, I feel like I’ve been neglecting it by only having spent 30-something hours on it!
