I had pre-ordered Skyrim and had it sitting on my TV to play the following weekend when my wife told me she was interested in playing. Great! I've got other things to play so go ahead dear...little did I know it would become the game she played every night for weeks. In order to allow me to actually play it, she bought me a second copy for my birthday a few weeks ago.
This story line is one of the best I've ever played in any genre of video game. They are well written and keep things fresh as you play along including great plot twists and character development of the NPCs. As I neared the end of the story line I realized that I had put over 40 hours into this game already and I must break away if I'm to ever play anything else. So, I've decided to break up my play by story lines and will come back in a few weeks to try another one.
As I finished up the Thieves Guild story line my only complaint was that it didn't really tell me that I had finished it. I expected some fanfare and in the end was left wondering if I'd actually done what I needed to. After talking it over with my wife, it turns out that there's more to "returning the guild to it's former glory" and I have a lot more to do.
The thing that I've enjoyed most about Skyrim so far is the conversations that my wife and I have had about it. Since she had a long head start, she gets to help me out with tips every now and then which is a new thing for her :) We used to play a lot of Dark Age of Camelot together and this has a lot of that same feel for us as we kind of experience it together even though we play separately.
