Jeremy Parish: Skyrim has, shall we say, issues. Yet I find myself playing it nevertheless; it has me hooked in a way that few video games ever have. Yesterday, I experienced a moment that perfectly encapsulates why. It's not a spoiler, at least so far as the core plot is concerned. On the contrary, it was a non-event in a completely immaterial location; the fact that so much consideration was invested in this utterly trivial moment is exactly what I love about Skyrim.
