Oh noes! The biggest RPG of the year is only two hours long! All other games are going to be 10 minutes long now! The world is ending!
Nah. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will likely be 30-40 hours and a whole lot more if you plan to fully indulge and immerse yourself in the epic world. I think we all know that.
Still, if you visit the Bethesda Blog , you'll see that one of the studio's QA guys, Sam Bernstein, completed the main campaign in only 2 hours, 16 minutes, and 10 seconds. Believe it or not, level designer Jeff Browne came in a close second…only ten seconds slower. The two participated in a speed run through Fallout 3 , too, so they know what they're doing.
So Bernstein gets a pumpkin pie from Todd Howard, a trophy, and some Internet fame. Are you impressed? Would you attempt a speed run of Skyrim ? Don't look at me .
