    I'm not buying Skyrim. Not even endless threads and a bombardment of Shackhype can persuade me.

    I've never liked a single player RPG before, so I dont know why I'd start to like them now. I've played a few of them from the old Zelda/Chrono-Trigger days up to Windwaker on GC and also more recent games like Two Worlds II. The most I've played out of any of them was maybe a couple hours of Windwaker. I've tried to like them, but they just don't hold my attention.

    I still see long stretches of mediocre dialogue and endless books with 30 pages of alchemy text and lockpicking and collecting random boring objects in this game.

    What separates this game from the others, or is it just the latest in the genre to collect the drool of RPG fans globally?
