Addicted-Gamers: Best of 2011 Video Game Awards
Ryan.C – I could sit here and talk about how fun and frantic the gameplay is, with updated mechanics that make the click-spam feel more than mashing. I could also discuss how beautiful the game looks even on lower systems, sometimes reaching jaw dropping levels of virtual beauty. Here, stats mean something instead of being placebo numbers. The most important part of this game, thereby making it RPG of the year, is that you can be even more of a jerk in this fantasy world than in any other place.
Skyrim is heavy on the immersion, making evil actions really satisfying. When you kick food off of tables, the diners will yell and get angry. Running into someone will make them stumble. Start a barfight by dropping food on the ground and the NPCs around will fight over the scraps. When I play, I actually believe I’m this colossal, self-serving twit. I walk around in gaudy clothing and I don’t give the homeless anything. I am Gorlock, and I am the biggest prick in all the land.
