Like most so-called “adults,” I spend a lot more time thinking about playing video games than I actually have to play them. That said, I started Skyrim this week, and I’m an hour or two in, which means I’m nearly done crafting my character’s eyebrows.
But I’ve played enough games like this to know what I’m in for. And what I’m in for is wading through an army of lazy jerkwads who want me to run their errands for them because The People’s Court is on and their Tivo is like, totally whatever right now.
I love RPGs, but they usually devolve into me running all over the globe picking up everyone’s magical crap for them like some kind of grumpy, horn-helmed courrier with a battle axe.
Anyway, this week, I wrote a brief cue that would play when you discover one of the better items in a game like this. Maybe you found somebody’s long-lost POG collection in a troll den or something. Like with nice metal slammers and not crappy plastic ones.
What does . . . does no one else remember those?
