So this is a selfie of my latest character in Skyrim, from my thief playthrough of Skyrim. I took this shot from the kill camera animation and I have had to adjust exposure as she was cloaked in shadows and very hard to see 😉
*edit* as well as eating my twitter hashtags, it’s also left out a paragraph 😛 I must have published an earlier version somehow (actually think I had it open in two browser windows… ). so here’s the missing paragraph:
I like this selfie because it pretty much sums up my favourite type of character and playstyle. Elder Scrolls gave me the thieving, sneaking addiction and it’s something that I’ve always tried to replicate in later games. I have to say though, only Elder Scrolls gets the experience just right, ESO (funnily enough) is the only MMO where I’ve been able to play the way I really love – when the Justice System came in, it suddenly felt a lot more like the Elder Scrolls games that I know. I have played ranged, stealthy characters in other MMOs (EQ2, Vanguard, Lotro) and although they were a lot of fun and very enjoyable to play, they just don’t match up to the thrill of stealthing and attacking (or stealing :P) from the shadows.
