    So, skyrim is consuming my life. I just have to say something about your reviews. A 1-5 rating has been how you've rated video games for atleast a decade now. My thing is, can't we use our brains to scale the excellence of a game using a better system than one throufh five stars. I how much time had to go into this game, the creation engine, a completely revamped awesome game and I'm sure tons of stuff that I dont even realize and we give it a rating of one through five? I could.see obe through five if we were rating jelly bean flavors or something. Skyrim is like a 99.99. Its more effective than the ring in keeping my wife not pregnant so that's atleast a 99.9.

    It's too bad you guys didn't really discuss the part of this game that's the same for everyone: the mechanics. You know, the crappy ally AI, the incredibly repetetive smalltalk, the pathing that is worse than WoW classic(and that says a lot), the poor third person perspective camera angle and aiming controls, the 'invisible walls' on cliffs preventing you from firing arrows at certain angles in a lot of places, etc...

    Sure you had a great experience - but the experience is different for everyone. And while the game is absolutely a great game worth playing... it's not the 'zomg revolution in game design that is amazing and perfect and omg you must play it or else oyu're missing out because it's perfect and there's nothing bad about it' that you guys imply with your review.

    It's almost like you were TRYING not to notice the bad stuff... which you really should discuss if you want to be fair about a game. Talk about the good and the bad and then let people make up their mind as to whether the good outweighs the bad. Your text review does no better - btw - at this.
