I did a strange thing over the weekend. I had nothing to do but sit in the house all day feeling sorry for myself, so I did what any self respecting human being would do -- I played a stupid amount of Skyrim. But it got me to wondering -- should I have given Kingdoms of Amalur a try instead?
I haven't managed to play it yet, mainly because starting a new RPG always feels like such a time sink to me. Skyrim is actually the first Bethesda game I've played seriously since Morrowind, so it really is a small miracle that it managed to suck me in. After playing 40 hours of Skyrim, and 40 hours of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, I really don't know if I'm ready and willing to commit to another RPG! And Mass Effect 3 is just around the corner... Sweet Jeebus. Have mercy!
But from what I've heard, Kingdoms of Amalur is actually worth your time -- have you guys managed to put many hours into the game? I'm keen to hear your thoughts. Let us know in the comments below!
