I'm trying not to be too fanboish about Skyrim. Because I hate people who are like that.
And I will eventually return from emotional fact gathering to rational analysis.
But for now, I have to show you one of those tiny parts of the game that stand out. It's not the graphics this time, as consoles don't allow high-resolution textures, which are important if something is right next to you (and Youtube is incapable of showing off graphics, anyway).
Also, please note that this is in no way connected to any quest whatsoever. I'm sneaking through a temple of fanatics, as I am used to in computer games. Skyrim doesn't have any morale system and this dungeon is not even part of the main story line, as far as I know. This monologue is without any consequence at all. And that's what makes it so great!
