Holy Moly: If you use the internet, watch TV or leave your house occasionally, then there's a very reasonable chance you will have heard of Bethesda's newest role-playing game, Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Pretty unusual, given that it's not exactly the type of game you would expect to see receiving such a large amount of attention from the mainstream media.
After all, there's no guns, no terrorist plots, no cars, no sports, no dance-offs and only a very small section devoted to interior decoration. In short, it's a game that not so long ago would have been almost entirely populated by hairy-palmed computer science undergrads and slightly less hairy-palmed celebrity journalists. 10/10
