"Dragons are the nuclear weapons of fantasy games"--IGN

I'm not much of a gamer. I mean I used to be pretty 1337 with my CS 1.5/1.6 skillz back in the day, but these days video games don't get me all that excited...EXCEPT

The Elder Scrolls series. 

Morrowind (ESIII) was the first game that revolutionized bringing the player into a new world so expansive and captivating that it could keep them there for embarrassingly long amounts of time. The Elder Scrolls created as dense and interesting of a world as any book I've read or movie I've seen.
It was like watching Harry Potter doing coke off of Hermoine's ass.

As IGN.COM said:
"Many might associate Bethesda Game Studios with the irradiated wastes of Fallout, but slightly older video game fans know the company established itself on swords-and-sorcery fantasy. Without the success of The Elder Scrolls role-playing series, there likely would be no Fallout 3 as we know it today,"

I mean it literally consumed every kid on my block. Even Will Rippetoe who destroys games like it's his birthday still jerks it to the Scrolls.

ANYWAYS, after 5 years of lonngggg waiting, wondering if a fifth installment of the best RPG series of all time would ever come, the news was released. and today, a trailer came out.

With good reason, this is the second post in a row that ends in:


Oh and this looks really funny. God bless Hollywood's coming to their senses and realizing the superiority of the R-rated comedies:
