Despite being out for nearly three years, Skyrim continues to be played and well-loved by tons of folks—especially by those willing to dive into its bewildering modding world.

Given that, it might not be surprising to hear that a ton of Skyrim's reviews on Steam are actually sort of recent. Lots of people are still getting lost in Skyrim's world, lots of people are still taking on too many sidequests and trying their best to kill Lydia. You see this appreciation reflected in the funny and sometimes absurd Steam reviews for the game. If nothing else, Steam reviews allow us to see some of the weird obsessions people take on when playing the game. Skyrim has a knack for bringing out everyone's weirdness.

Take a look:

I'll admit, I'm tempted to re-install Skyrim and give it another whirl. I never got to play the game with mods, so really, you might say its like I've never played the game at all.

The quote in the header image is the kind of shit that makes me scream bloody murder when playing a Bethesda game.

When I started up Fallout 3, I walked around town and accidentally opened up a door to a shed that I apparently wasn't supposed to open unless I was a bad bad man. "Whoops," I said when I saw that I lost Karma. I immediately shut the door again and left the interior undisturbed.

Next? Everyone in the entire city, including the children, got out their guns. They all instantly knew - even people on the clear opposite side of town, they KNEW - that I'd opened a door, and that opening said door was punishable by death.

They chased me everywhere, and shot me to death even in my own home. When I was down, I watched a 10-year-old blow a few extra holes in my corpse.

Fuck you.
