This week at UGO, I got to combine two of my greatest current nerd-culture loves, Game of Thrones and Skyrim, by comparing the two of them. It’s jokey as hell, but there’s a lot of truth to it, because as much as I love Skyrim, the game’s got some serious problems. Some of them are endemic to the video game medium, some can be chalked up to lower expectations of the same, and others are just because it’s a humongous game with too many things that could potentially go wrong.
Still, never let it be said that I’m not a true Dohvahkiin – Skyrim is looking more and more like my favorite video game ever, and I’ve probably spent more time on it than any other single game (if you combine Virtua Fighter games, it’ll almost certainly get bumped to No. 2). Check out the article now, and as always Facebook Like, Twitter Tweet and Comment as much as you can possibly stand it.
In related news, another chocolate-in-my-peanut-butter situation involving two of my favorite geek-obsessions: The dragons of Skyrim as played by “Macho Man” Randy Savage. Shockingly, I hadn’t seen this before yesterday, and I blame pretty much everyone in my life for not showing it to me earlier, except of course for Dave Wallin at 8 of Swords Tattoo, who stepped up and did what needed to be done.
