The lights are on
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim released one year ago today, and it's a huge a game. Are you still playing it? This holiday season has had no shortage of huge expansive experiences. Assassin's Creed III offers a large open world with lots to do. Borderlands 2 has about 10 or 15 guns hidden across Pandora (there might be a few more, I'm not sure). Halo 4 has the Legendary difficulty, which should keep folks busy for a while, and a multiplayer mode that will keep people distracted until Halo 5 comes out. Then of course there is Need for Speed: Most Wanted, Resident Evil 6, and Paper Mario, a time-consuming RPG, that also released for 3DS today.
There are tons of games to play, many of which I did not list above, but I bet there are still a healthy number of gamers out there getting lost in the world of Skyrim. Even without the DLC, that game can steal your life away.
So what about you? Are you still playing Skyrim? Or have you moved onto something different?

Yep. Every now and then I will launch it. With the mod community in full swing, it's hard to get bored of it.
i still play it every once in a while, i have four characters and two of them have 100+ hours
I put 180 hours into one file, platinumed the game and did pretty much everything there was to do by like February. I really do want to start playing again soon, but on PC. I don't think I'm ever going back to PS3 for Skyrim, since it doesn't seem like we're ever getting DLC.
I just got it two or three weeks ago, so yeah I've barely scratched the surface.
I've been taking a break from Skryim ever since this semester started. I might dive back into it during Christmas break, but it will probably be next summer before I really get back into the game. In my opinion, there's no reason to play Skyrim when you only have about 30 minutes to an hour of free time to play. That's where I'm at right now. I've been mostly playing MLB 09 The Show and NBA 2k12.
Yes. Though Halo 4 has taken up the last few days. Once the Dragonborn DLC comes out, I'll slowly get off Halo 4 back onto Skyrim.
I haven't played skyrim since earlier this year. Good game, but after you explore the world it just becomes a game of looking at loading screens as you fast travel everywhere.
I know this game gets alot of crap from ppl who are either jealous that it destroyed their favorite series that year, or ppl who are butthurt over it being so popular, and then you have have your nostalgia queens that can't get over elder scrolls games of the past (which are all great mind you) but this game is the best elder scrolls to date, (and yes i've played them all) and one of the most impressive games we've seen this generation. It will continued to be played just as Morrowind is played today, get over it or jump aboard, because it's one of the best experiences money can buy in the game industry. i've said my peace. If you want to say something negative then I couldnt care less. ELDER SCROLLS FTW!
How could I stop playing Skyrim? #one of the BEST games EVAR!!!
Ive been thinking about playing it again. it was so addicting.
Sorta. I haven't played it in awhile, but I don't consider myself to be done with it. Like almost every Bethesda game it's one I'll probably find myself coming back to occasionally.
Yes actually i was playing 2 days ago cause i was bored with my other games. Elder Scrolls: The Series To Fall Back On When Bored With Other S*** should be their slogan. Or just the simple and elegant Old Reliable.
I had actually just started to play... and then Assassin's Creed III came out.
Nope. AC3 has been taking up a lot of my time. The rest of my gaming time has been with Borderlands 2 and Dishonored. Haven't gotten around to buying XCOM yet, but it looks good.
i played skyrim for a long while... until i got borderlands. played that nonstop, while still desiring to explore the endless dungeons of skyrim, and then just switched to AC3 which i have been playing since. Will i go back to skyrim? YES. how can one not go back to skyrim (if it's your thing)? it's better (or worse) than the most addicting drug!
I still play the game off and on.
