Of course, while I do enjoy watching The Rad Brad play, I'm not going to play this one myself.
Anyone who knows me knows I'm waiting on the next Skyrim. I miss the versatility, the openness, and the fact that the game never really "ends". You can't buy or build a house in Forspoken, or get married, adopt tiny humans or a furbaby. You can make friends, but they don't travel or live with you. I need all that and now that I've had a taste, I can't go back. I can't do quest-focused, combat-heavy games because RPGs--for me--are supposed to be vacations. I'm an old woman; I'm not trying to mess up my blood pressure. I want an RPG that that transports me to places I can't physically go, and let me just enjoy being there.
Which raises another issue; I'd love, love, LOVE to write a Forspoken fanfic, but the game wasn't giving me enough to work with. There's some great lore and history potential, but I still have so many, many questions. I think I need the sequel, and we already know how long it takes these types of games to come out.
Here's hoping qet a sequel anyway, and some companion media (books, comics, short film, SOMETHING).
