Skyrim

Now this really is not my type of game. These days I just like to have a few rounds on Call of Duty or Street Fighter, i can't for the life of me invest time in a game of this magnitude. However many people can as it seems to be a trending topic with all my friends on Twitter and Facebook.

One thing I am curious about though is the games percieved mainstream popularity. While i haven't played it (so take what I say with a pinch of salt) all the kids coming into my store have wanted to buy this game. Older guys, parents and women too. Now to me this game does not seem too far removed from something like World Of Warcraft which also requires massive time investment and demands total immersion. Though from my experience hardly anyone will own up to actually playing WOW or they will just be lambasted with generic nerd insults if they do.

What is different with this game? is it because it is on the more mainstream PS3 and Xbox 360 and not just exclusive to PC (the impression of by most people is PC Gaming seems to be ubiquitous with nerd behaviour)

If any of you have played it, is it any good? or are you looking to play it soon?

Nostalgia

As I randomly log in after another long break of generally existing, a wave of nostalgia hits me. I think back to the days I used this site religiously and the great community with it. Also how much easier life was back then. When you're all grown up things get harder as I am sure some of the older users can attest to.

How poignant this all is.
