I have no content written up for today, mostly because I didn’t so much as skim the news yesterday. This was because video games turned me into an unproductive slug. Hillary Clinton was right.
Thankfully, my blog has always been about writing what’s on my mind, and what’s on my mind right now is Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Holy crap, it’s the best game I’ve ever played, and all the review sites have been drooling over the game since Skyrim’s release five days ago – and justifiably so! I have very little time for gaming anymore, but I have no regrets about abdicating my responsibilities for a few nights to partake of this one. If you’re a gamer, I could not give this game a more enthusiastic endorsement.
A couple months ago, Sarah had to bring her kitten into the office for a day.
It pretty much cut productivity by half. Well, Skyrim has had the same effect. Of the four campus organizers who are consistently in the office, three of us are playing Skyrim. Right now the pope could make Joe Paterno the patron saint of protecting child-rapists and it wouldn’t hit this blog until after I’d killed another three dragons.
For one thing, the game is huge. It’s literally like being plopped into another world. There are unique people in the villages, most of which you can interact with in some meaningful way. Even the side quests are of a grand enough scale that they could be the main plot of a lesser RPG. The music is fantastic, the environments are gorgeous…I’m convinced Satan made this game to bring the world to a halt.
Ol’ Beelz. He’s kind of always had humanity’s back.
