Skyrim is unlike any of the other anticipated games I’ve seen this year. When you scrolled through comments, whether YouTube or your favorite game news media site, Skyrim‘s fans were more than happy to remind us that Skyrim was coming, either through a simple reminder or a more brazen, “Skyrim!” scrawled across their post in all caps.
And why not? The Elder Scrolls: Oblivion was widely loved for its humongous fantasy world which offers a plethora of things to do in any fashion you see fit. While you could still play Oblivion now and enjoy it, it certainly shows its age, especially when juxtaposed to it’s new sibling, Skyrim.
