Hey, we were all newbs once. Maybe not this newbish, though. Check out New Hampshire Public Radio personality Virginia Prescott’s absolute beginner’s try at Skyrim. It’s good for a couple of laughs, but it also might remind you why you like the game in the first place, as Prescott comes away impressed by the beauty of the game and sort of frustrated as she gets slaughtered.
Here’s what Virginia took away from her time with the game:
Look ahead, not up.
Know the purpose of the game before starting the game.
Be prepared to defeat your enemies at a moment’s notice – and if all else fails, change your strategy.
Pause every now and then to take in the beauty.
(and the most crucial) Be patient.
