Skyrim is such an amazing, open ended game that you have a huge variety of ways to play it. I’ve already mentioned how various mods allow for greater role-playing potential, and when you add that to what’s already there, there’s a never ending cornucopia of adventure to be had.
The downside of this is that I’ve only beaten Skyrim once, even though I’ve started over a dozen new games.
It’s not that my games stop being fun. It’s just that I get excited about a new idea, and then I want to try it. But, after I’ve spent so much XP and so many perk points towards a particular play style, it’s hard to change up and do a different play style. So I need to start a new game. Or maybe I want to play as a different race. You may recall that less than a week ago, I was playing as a pirate queen. Since then, I’ve played as a barbarian princess, and right now, I’m playing as an Argonian bard who has a small army of followers.
I have no idea what I’ll be playing tomorrow, but I know this much. The Jarl of Whiterun will be very happy with them before I delete them and create yet another new game.
