Phil Owen: It could be argued that Skyrim is actually the central character in the game, full of personality, depth and an amazingly rich history. And snow. The world first begins to reveal its true identity with all the crazy snow, and it continues with glaciers and ice shelves. I spent hours climbing around on glaciers, seriously, because that’s just too cool. Later, I was sent out even further north on ice shelves in search of a crazy man’s igloo, and I was in heaven.
