The lights are on
A couple of years ago, I remember having a copy of The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. At that time, I wasn't very good at video games, mind you. I disliked Morrowind very much, seeing as at that time I was playing it on my Xbox 360 (backwards compatability), and Halo: Combat Evolved had better graphics. I got rid of it at a store only a week after I bought it. Months ago, I wanted to trade in The Sims 3, and I thought I should give The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion a try, so I traded in. I started playing Oblivion, and it was fun, until I got frustrated by getting caught in Oblivion at the beginning of the game and got rid of it.
I don't have a clue what made me want to give Skyrim a try, I guess it was the fact I heard nothing but praise for it (at first). Looking back, I'm glad I bought it. I was entranced after the first five minutes of the game. I quickly started slaying dragons, and listening to guards tell me how they used to be an adventurer like me, and such. I was engulfed. Several times, my mom had to come tell me to go to bed, and it felt like I had only been playing for 30 minutes. After about five days, I pushed the main quest aside and started just to explore, scavenge, and do side quests (which is something I did a lot of in Fallout). I can tell that a lot of work went into Skyrim, such as the lore, the dragon language, and even the scenery. I found myself wishing I lived in a land as beautiful as Skyrim, but no I had to be born in the middle of redneck country! Grrgghh...
Anyway, I never experienced any bugs, that I noticed at least, and found the controls and gameplay very smooth. The only complaints I really have is that I wish animals didn't die so fast, and that lockpicks were more abundant. Otherwise, I found Skyrim to be quite an exquisite game. Thank you, Bethseda.
