’s Review of Skyrim

swit Rockpapershotgun.coms Review of SkyrimAlec Meer of writes…

I have been deeply anx­ious about writ­ing this piece for the last two days purely because I don’t feel I’ve seen enough. Maybe I shouldn’t have spent so long smithing and enchant­ing an epic armour set. Maybe I should have gone dragon-hunting instead of obses­sively pick­ing every lock and pocket I stum­bled across. Maybe I shouldn’t have gone mammoth-hunting just for the hell of it. Maybe I should have been a full-on mage or an axe-wielding bar­bar­ian. Maybe I should have ditched my namby-pamby paci­fism and joined the Dark Broth­er­hood. Maybe I should have used a shield even once. Maybe I should have let that Mas­ter Vam­pire bite me instead of light­ning bolt­ing him to death. Maybe I shouldn’t have spent sev­eral hours sim­ply rid­ing from West to East and tak­ing it all in.

Maybe I’ll do all that next time. First though, I really fancy a nice set of Glass Armour, so time to explore a few caves for ore to mine then spend some good, hon­est hours at the forge. I may be some time. I may be the rest of the year, and beyond. Not only is Skyrim, for my money, the game of the year, but… oh this is hard. Very hard. I’m sorry Mor­rowind – I love you, but I don’t need you any­more. I think, at last, there is a new Best Elder Scrolls Ever.
