I might not have a life, but dont worry, I made sure to get one pre-ordered
Anyone who played the first few Elder Scrolls games and enjoyed them or anyone into open world RPG’s can kiss any social life they currently have goodbye. The fifth entrance into the Elder Scrolls series, Skyrim, has been designed to be a never ending game with an infinite questing system that adapts to the players actions and completed quests/actions, One doesn’t simply finish the game. The world of Skyrim has been designed in such a way that one can play the character as if they were actually living in the game world, that is to say that not every quest will be of significant importance to the main story line and once the main story line has been completed the player will have much more to do in the vastly huge world Bethesda has created. There will be a number of guilds for the player to join up with which will add to the “to do” list and once the player has completed the main story, raided every dungeon, hunted and killed every dragon and done every side quest, there will still be much more to explore and the NPC’s will have countless interactions for the player to continue with the game well after the main story has been completed. This will amount to many pissed off girlfriends and wives and perhaps a divorce or two for the extreme gamer with little consideration for reality. I myself and highly looking forward to Skyrim and what its world has to offer, this will however be my pitfall as I am easily distracted by side events and stray off the main plot line thinking I have to do every little quest that comes my way from picking flowers for a little old lady to slaying a pissed off mega dragon for the sword of a thousand truths.
Who else will be getting this epic tale of a dragon born warrior? will you be checking out of reality for a while to explore every cave and hobbit hole in the land?
