How can playing Skyrim teach you to survive the apocalypse?

After all, wouldn’t Fallout 3, Rage, Brink, Fallout New Vegas and all the other post apocalyptic games be a better bet?

Well, yes and no.

Yes because of the obvious. Those other games are all set in apocalyptic or post apocalyptic worlds, and for that reason alone you’d think they had an advantage. And, in fact, I have used Fallout as a survival simulator, though for some reason in real life I can’t carry a mini nuke launcher. So unfair.

But there are many things Skyrim can teach you that they can’t. And it can teach it two-fold- once from the in game experiences, and once from the actual experience of playing it.

Oh crap.. I don't want too many people surviving an apocalypse.

I know the feeling. Sure I want to be prepared, but too many survivors and we could just have chaos.

Fallout teaches us the more overt lessons with clear right and wrong answers, while Skyrim teaches us lessons we didn't expect to learn.
