Skyrim Madness

Yes, I got a case of Skyrim madness this past weekend. I was still playing at Very Easy (“Novice”) and I got totally swept up in the story. I started piling up pages of incomplete quests and miscellaneous quests, and it was making me nervous. On Sunday I invoked my lessons learned about Gaming Addiction and quit the current game.

Here are a couple photos of me progressing through the game, getting cooler weapons and armor.

Yordie Sands is the heroine of a virtual fantasy life.

That’s me in the batters box with one of my fave weapons, the greatsword.

Yordie Sands is a blogger, author, and Tweeter.

That’s me in Solitude taking a pose in my fancy armor threads.

After detoxing on my manic phase in the game, I started over. I slowed down the pace dramatically and I’m enjoying it even more. There is so much to learn and discover in this game that I can foresee playing for at least a year at the current pace. I continue to be charmed by the magnificent gamescape with beautiful landscapes, massive amount of things to discover, the fascinating story or lore revealed in conversations and books.

In essence, playing this game is something like watching a television series, but you are part of the action. I mean, something like Ensign Paris described holo-novels on the Holodeck in Star Trek Voyager (back before Star Trek completely ran amok in wokeness in Star Trek Discovery).

Anyway, more to come. I might try making a video and I’d like to add some narration but I don’t know how to do that yet.

  1. By coincidence I bought Skyrim this week from Steam. Did you ever play Morrowind, Yordie?

      Hi Annie… I hope you enjoy Skyrim as much as I am. No, I haven’t tried Morrowind. I’ll look it up. I’ve played Lara Croft Tomb Raider (VERY similar gaming engine…I like a lot), Lara Croft Rise of the Tomb Raider, Fallout 3, Fallout 4, Fallout 76… games like that. I’ve tried others but I prefer games that let you get acclimated to what’s going on. It’s one reason I’m not crazy about most multi-player games..
