I've had to make some big choices in my life, but this may be one of the biggest: Skyrim or Skyward Sword.
Nerd World Problems, right? But this is important! I haven't always been sucked in by Bethesda RPGs, but Skyrim is a huge exception. I'm about 12 hours in and I'm starting to feel that very compulsive need to be be in that world. I want to start Skyward Sword more than anything, but I also want to experience Zelda without switching back and forth between Skyrim.
It's a bit like a good book -- you want to finish the one you started before moving on. But... I don't want to feel pressure to finish Skyrim quickly, because it's not that kind of game.
Like I said -- Nerd World Problems.
My solution so far has been this -- Super Mario 3D Land for my commute, Skyrim until I'm done. Skyward Sword has slowly become my most anticipated game of the year, so I want to light some candles and get romantic with that game. I'm happy to plug away at Skyrim until I get over it.
So I guess what I'm saying, in a roundabout way, is that I'll be playing Skyrim this weekend. And holding off on Zelda.
What are you folks playing this weekend?
