Michael Rabalais: "When I found myself paying $60 for Skyrim on day one, it seemed like another instance of my own piss-poor judgment. I had read A Song of Ice and Fire, and thought hanging out in the Arctic with dragons seemed like a pretty cool thing to do.
Luckily, I was right.
Skyrim presents a more complete and interesting fiction than any game before it. Even better; Bethesda is confident enough in their writing and design to let it speak for itself. There’s subtlety to Skyrim. Few games can tackle racism, religious freedom, or political obligation intelligently – Skyrim pulls off all three and makes it look easy."
