Skryim looks like one killer game.

Watching the commercials and trailers for it shows that it’s one very well produced game.

I just rented it to see if I’d like it.

So far – it seems like a massive departure from the simple “just go out and shoot guys” type of games like Modern Warfare and Call of Duty.

Also, it’s not your goofy Mario Brothers, mindless game.

This appears to be a game very-much based on a story that I feel like I should have understood well before starting the game.

A few freinds and I have spent a couple hours playing Skryim and I don’t have a full review yet.

I can, however say that:

  • It looks freakin’ amazing!  The graphics are killer.
  • The story is sweet.  I need to plan to spend more time with this game.
  • It appears to be a game that you need to spend plenty of time with, enjoying the story and the options while unlocking the secrets of the game during the process.

I can also say that I haven’t had enough experience to give a full review or recommendation.  At least not yet.

So, I must continue my tedious research.  (It’s a tough life, but someone’s gotta do it!)

Finding expertise in others.

When I’m new to a game (or anything for that matter) and I need to do a little research, I recognize that other people have forged a path before me.  Others have been where I’m going; I can learn from them to make my time more efficient.

I found a good youtube video from a guy who has a ton (and I mean a ton!) of really good videos of himself playing games.  Check it out here.

So, for now, I’m going to play skyrim in my spare time and will report back.
