Yep. They got me.A long story short, after I had cleared Bleak Falls Barrow, delivered that Dragonstone, and began my humble career as a thief in the glorious city of Riften... my normally darkened room began to brighten, and I realized two things: one, the sun was rising. Two: I had never been so engrossed in a video game in my life - and I LOVE gaming.
Such is the story of how I got sucked into Skyrim, developing a new appreciation for the RPG genre, and simultaneously blowing off several friends and family members in the pursuit of Septims and gems and other assorted loot (my basement in Honeyside is full of... "hard earned" valuables, but I digress). That being said, I'm beyond optimistic for The Elder Scrolls: Online. In addition to knowing that I'm about to lose hundreds of hours of my life into that game, I also know that with a new generation of gaming consoles, comes several improvements, gaming potential, and with online functionality comes the ability to finally trade profane banter with my friends as we explore crypts and temples and subterranean caves - February 2014, I will vanish for a long time.
That being said, Skyrim wasn't completely flawless, despite being very good. Furthermore, there were some parts of the game that I felt were either lacking, or could've been done better - if only in my humble opinion. There's several things I'd love to see implemented in The Elder Scrolls: Online, and these are just a few.
