I would be remiss to post the Battlefield 3 gameplay trailer without mentioning the mouth-watering new preview of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. I was never one for magic and fantasy but Oblivion drew me in with its idyllic scenery and massive countryside. Skyrim looks to have all that and more, including some new features that I haven’t been able to turn down in a video game yet: menial tasks like cooking, farming, mining, woodcutting, and blacksmithing. And hunting, of course. Of all the things to do in that sprawling, open, Nordic land, these are high on my list.
Fighting dragons looks to be pretty thrilling though.
