Skyrim is a game that can be almost soul consuming at times, as you’ll pick up the controller, kill a few Draugrs, become Archmage of the College of Winterhold and when you look up, it’s six hours later.
Needless to say, if two people that are dating are BOTH playing the game hardcore? It can be a bit of a buzzkill on the relationship, as the virtual world becomes far more engrossing than the real one. I thought this was a particularly hilarious video illustrating that point. My favorite part is how he hangs up the phone, which I’ve totally done on many an occasion when my hands are full.
