Skyrim was one of the first video games I fell in love with. Some of you may know that I didn’t start gaming until I was an adult, and I credit Dragon Age: Origins with my initial love for the medium. But I also remember watching a video online of Skyrim — knowing next to nothing about The Elder Scrolls series — and, after seeing someone brawling in Windhelm, thinking I’d almost die if I didn’t get my hands on that game. It looked incredible.
What makes Skyrim so special for me is the ability to fashion a completely unique character and in-game life.
