             Review and Criticism

So, this week I've been playing Skyrim again and stoped. Why? Fatherhood.

I like that game a lot, and I was in the mood for a grand fantasy epic, so I started up and I roleplay, but when I play role-playing games I try and get into it. You know because part of the fun is like, yeah, I'm this guy. I'm going around. You need me to save the world? Yeah. True noble hero and all that stuff. That's me.

Yeah, so, some interesting things about Skyrim and interesting developments in games just in general or role-playing games at least, is one of the things like you can get like married now and have kids and stuff, or you can adopt kids. So, and that's an occurring thing, and I don't have any problems with it really. I don't think I do. Because the whole point of role-playing games is to play a role. Some interesting stuff happened to me and this is the reason why I quit playing, and I want to talk to you about it because it was weird, and I didn't know what to do with it and I quit playing the game, and I'm probably not gonna play it for awhile because of this.

So, in the game I was doing my normal hero stuff, savior of the world whatever have you and this little kid starts begging me for money. I get it and then I talk to her and she says, "Oh, my mother died and I don't got nowhere to live." And I'm like, oh shit. This is freaking depressing and all that stuff. I know it's just a game and it's one of the heroes, but I still kind of believe myself a hero and me so, and I was just gonna walk away from her and like, but the hero. The hero can't abandon dying orphan girl who has nowhere to go. So, I adopted her and I tried to continue my normal quest, but my role-playing was like, can't do that either because you can't leave a kid alone for years at a time role-playing as a hero because you know. Honestly, everybody else seems to be able to handle the dragons pretty well and you know.

 

So, I had, you can't leave the kid alone and you agree to raise the kid, so I got married and I quit playing and in my head, my character quit heroing and is now a father in White Runner. I don't know what that means to me. I just, it's an experience I had. I mean it's that whole moral dissidence or there's this fancy word for it, but I just thought it was kind of funny, so.

You know. An interesting little experience I had so, I had a human moment in a game. Through it's own storytelling it convinced me that adventuring wasn't worth it and I should just settled down and retire, so my character did and that hasn't happened to me in a game before. That I quit because the story didn't make sense to me to continue going on because all the other didn't matter at least for my character perspective because my character had to deal with real world things all of a sudden and that.

So, that is role-playing in Skyrim maybe can get a little too intensive at times. I don't know. Is Skyrim a very old game am I still playing it? Yeah. Will, I play it again in the future? Definitely. Will, I play it again in the near future? No. No.
