I have an addictive personality. For Christmas, I got The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Needless to say, I’ve put in a lot of hours on the game in the past week.
It’s a pretty great game – a big open world with some gorgeous environments, and so, so much content to explore. You can’t go a few minutes in the wild without stumbling across another cave, fortress or ruin. And then there are the random encounters with thieves, bandits, wild animals, and, of course, dragons. It has more content than you could see in a single play through, thanks to the choices you get in parts of the game, and a lot of dynamically generated stuff that means you’ll often run into something a little different – enemies that happen to come upon you at the same time might wind up fighting each other as much as they do you.
I’ve barely scratched the main storylines, preferring to see out a lot of the side content first. This game could keep me busy for weeks to come.
