Now you're probably wondering why neither Becky nor Steve have played Skyrim before. Well, Becky has a good excuse, because she's rather new to games and has only been playing the games which her husband has installed on the computer. Steve on the other hand, has been playing games for many many years, so why hasn't he played Skyrim before? The answer is simple, he tends to play either old games or indie games. The reason for that is that most games nowadays lack innovation, and most AAA are just clones of each other. Just looking at how they're ruining Thief 4 is proof of that. Of course there are some good AAA games, they're just few and far between.

Doug on the other hand, clearly plays what ever game he can get his hands on.

Also, this is based on an actual event that happened. Someone kept avoiding the traps accidentally, and someone else kept running into them. Of course I wasn't either of these people, because I don't play Skyrim. I'm not kidding, I'm way too busy playing the more epic game Dwarf Fortress, to bother with the low-level gameplay of Skyrim. Wish I could say the same about my sister and her boyfriend though.

Also, do you know which game has the biggest game world? This is a question for only AAA games, because I’m pretty sure most indie games have infinite worlds (like minecraft). Well, would you like to know? It isn't Just Cause 2, or Skyrim, or anything like that. Nope, it's Arena and Daggerfall, the first two games in the Elder Scrolls Series. That's right; the games before Skyrim had bigger maps which were ten times bigger than Britain (don't quote me on that). Of course they were mostly flat boring land, but come on, biggest map or what?

I've played Neverwinter Nights. I don't mean the MMORPG, I mean the 2002 PC game.

I even still have the disc. As a matter of fact, I have two copies of the game now. I saw a complete collection at a dirt cheap price a few years ago, so I figured why not.

Oh, by the way. Thanks for the plethora of comments. :D
