Obligatory: Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Like most gamers who take their Bethesda RPGs entirely too seriously, I'm absolutely unable to remain in my seat any longer in anticipation for this game. Simply knowing that I have three more months of agony to go is killing me.
As with all good things, Bethesda stated that Skyrim won't be released until 11/11/11 last year. This gives us a month and 20 full days of Mountain Dew fueled days and nights to experience this game to its absolute fullest until the world ends when 2012 begins. Being a recovering addict from Oblivion myself, I'm somewhat dreading the arrival of this monolith of a game. My Argonian slept and ate more than I did, and you better believe he's better looking. Skyrim will absorb my gaming life in its entirety, my guild's raiding progression will come to an absolute halt as we all take our quarter-year Elder Scrolls break. Chaos and anarchy will ensue, the gaming internet as we know it will become derailed.
All-in-all, Bethesda had better not pull a Blizzard and decide to postpone the release date another half a year. I'd cry. Hard.
