The Elder Scrolls V (PC, XB360, PS3)
For all three of you out there who still haven’t played this game--Skyrim's main story revolves around the player’s efforts to defeat Alduin, a Dragon who will destroy the world. Set two hundred years after the events of Oblivion, the game takes place in the province of Skyrim. Unlike previous Elder Scrolls games, Skyrim does not require the player to select a character class at the beginning of the game. Skyrim continues the open world tradition of the Elder Scrolls series by allowing the player to travel anywhere in the game world at any time and to ignore or postpone the main storyline indefinitely. Skyrim is most definitely the greatest Norse-themed game ever created. Though it may not share in canonical Norse myths, it provides a very good look into what the life of a gifted Norse warrior could be like…if one were to ever face a dragon. Oh, and possessed the ability to speak dragon. This game totally kicks ass. So the three of you out there that still haven’t played this are totally missing out.
