Examiner: I have been waiting almost a year for this day to come. Ever since the announcement of Skyrim in late 2010 I have eagerly bided my time, planning my entire year of gaming around the release of Bethesda’s newest food for my RPG addiction. Some games that I would have played any other year upon their release have been relegated to “maybe I’ll play that next year” status.
I have made efforts to squeeze every last minute of fun from Deus Ex: Human Revolution so I could trade it in for store credit, rather than wait for the DLC and future return trips to 2027. I have ignored the call of duty and stayed away from the battlefield, lest I get dragged into the morass of unending online warfare.
