For some reason, it took me about eighty hours of gameplay to finally choose a side in the Imperials vs. Stormcloak war in Skyrim. I just didn’t want to make it so the other faction would start attacking me on sight everywhere I went, so I put off the decision until almost the end of the game.
Eventually, as I was a Nord, I went with the Stormcloaks, but about halfway through plundering cities and forts, I realized that they’re kind of huge racist pricks.
Also, I never really was clear as to what happened afterward (spoilers), Ulfric just sits around waiting to be crowned king, but that never actually ends up happening? Did I miss something here?
