I tend to be a #patientgamer, but there was one game I was definitely not going to wait for. After much hype and some money saved up, I ran out to my nearest GameStop to purchase Skyrim for the PS3 as soon as it hit the shelves.
The first time I was dumped into that horse drawn wagon in Skyrim and sentenced to beheading, I was pretty excited. I made my character, watched everyone run from the dragon, but it was only after the tutorial that I realized how insanely vast Skyrim was. Just look at those graphics, I said to myself. I had a newfound appreciation for models as well since I was in college for 3D modeling/game art and Skyrim seemed to scratch that artist itch for me.
I easily spent the better part of 5 hours just exploring. And I can say that here recently I finished the main story line on PS4, but honestly, the world is so amazing and beautiful that I just kept exploring places and talking to people (hello to the numerous misc quests). Skyrim is also the only game I have bought 3 times. PS3, PS4, and recently PC. If you love open worlds, fantasy, and RPG’s, Skyrim will give you that “woah” feeling on your first play through.
