Skyrim … doh!
*** Spoiler Alert ***
While other people were engrossed in All Things Superbowl, I was playing Skyrim. I almost wish I hadn’t. At level 34, I was feeling pretty strong and headed out to hunt dragons. Long story short, I ended up pursuing Alduin, the top dog … er, dragon. One thing led to another until he was dead. And there I was at level 34 (out of a possible 81, supposedly), finished with the main quest line in the game. What a disappointment. Everything else now will seem very anticlimactic, a fun way to kill time, but knowing the biggest prize has already been won. I could start another character, but the current one is my favorite playing style, and I’m afraid with a second character it will feel very much like “been there, done that.” My fault, I guess. I shouldn’t have gone after the dragon. But I’m not sure I’m happy with a game that allowed me to do that at level 34. Great game otherwise.
