As sad as it may sound to those who haven’t played any of the games from this award-winning series, I have sunk hundreds upon hundreds of hours into the Elder Scrolls universe. There are large sections of my life that consist mainly of events contained within Morrowind and Oblivion. Did I really interact with a group of cultists lurking in the forest, or was that merely part of the video game? The mind reels as I attempt to separate fiction from reality. This problem will only become even worse when “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim” drops later this year. How I’m going to find time to stuff yet another 100+ hours of video gaming into my already chaotic life will be a trial, but I’m sure I can make it work. So much for sleep and social interactions, right? I didn’t need them, anyway.
“Skyrim” and all of its infinite glory will invade PS3, Xbox 360, and PC on November 11th, 2011. The trailer below is beyond stunning. Check it out.
