I have seen the face of the enemy...

And it's name is Skyrim.
I bought it so my friend, who was coming for a visit, could have a game of it.  In the end she never tried it, but I have now and I can feel it sucking me in.
Such a vast space, so many places to go and things to do - it reminds me of the first time I played Warcraft, that feeling of having a world to explore with no limits (other than getting killed by big monsters).
The problem is that I'm trying to do NaNoWriMo.  I have fifty thousand words to write.  I'm currently on 19,200, about a day and a half behind schedule.  I do not need to be pulled into a vast virtual world with monsters to kill and phat loot to gather up!

DAMN YOU, SKYRIM!
And don't even get me started on Uncharted 3. 

(In case you're not aware, Skyrim and Uncharted are new video games.  They're both great, though, and you should totally get them.  Unless you're trying to write)
