You know what Steve said about the game world and gameplay in his review of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on PC? He’s right. Maybe not quite effusive or gushing enough, but still right. Just understating things a bit. And I say this as someone who, in general, refuses to play fantasy genre games of any sort because of how boring and common and overdone the entire genre seems. In general, I could care less about discovering the secret of the mists of Farrowfalls in the Elven city of Leishandira or whatever nonsense gets thrown at players, but Skyrim is different. It’s a vast open world, filled with locations that most players will never have any reason to visit unless they’re roaming simply for the sake of roaming.
