This under-two-minute video shows off a dozen or so beautiful settings in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim sped up to capture the game's passing of days, animals and weather.

Never mind the spectacle of combat, of fantasy creatures and encounters, this alone is reason enough to go out and buy this game.

The video was made by capturing one screenshot every two seconds and then speeding up the game with a console command.
