It's December. A whole year has gone by—a whole year without Skyrim. And yet it's obvious to me—to everyone—that we are in deep Skyrim withdrawal. It's the only way I can explain why commenters if not reviewers all over the web judge new games by gauging how much like Skyrim it is.
Hence Far Cry 3 being like ‘Skyrim with guns' (see video above by Machinima's Adam Kovic) or this commenter asking if the survival game Miasmata is like Skyrim without guns. Future games aren't safe either. We can't stop asking just how much the next Dragon Age is going to be like Skyrim.
