Hexus: I can't come to any conclusive judgements. I don't need to; I've seen enough. Though Skyrim does require a serious amount of time investment, the game rewards back ten-fold. Make no mistake, this is single-player role-playing gaming at its very zenith. The biggest compliment I can pay Bethesda's latest Elder Scrolls game is that overnight Skyrim has become a way of life in our house, and when I've not been playing it I've been thinking about it. That's the mark of great RPG, and Skyrim is most certainly the greatest.
