Elder Scrolls V coming in November

Six or seven years ago I wandered into GameStop in search of a cheap computer game worth my time. It’s really amazing what you can get for budget prices for the PC, as games are often sold for about half the price of their console counterparts. On this particular evening, I stumbled on a copy of the Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind Game of the Year Edition, for $10.

I had heard about this game. It was one of those annoying PC action-RPGs with great graphics, an open world and essentially no story. As far as I was concerned, an RPG without a story was a waste of time, but the game was $10 and one of the highest ranked titles in recent history. I couldn’t resist.

I made it about ten hours into Morrowind, enchanted by the open world and action-oriented combat. But I hit a wall. A couple of quests were getting tedious and I just had no clue why I was playing this game. I mean, what was the point of killing these monsters? The world was fun, the graphics were stunning at the time and the openness was refreshing, but the lack of narrative killed it for me.

Then Oblivion hit stores and was bitterly disappointed each time I saw a screenshot and realized I couldn’t play it on my computer. A year, later, when I finally got an Xbox 360, I invested in the title. This time, there was just enough plot to supplement the stunning world and keep me enthralled.

Now, I find myself anxiously awaiting Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, which Bethesda officially announced earlier today. Bethesda is playing things pretty close to the vest, and little is known about the game up to this point. We do, however, know it will be released on November 11, 2011, for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.  For an early glimpse at the title, check out the announcement trailer below.
