One of the non-MMO things I’ve been puttering with has been the latest game from Bethesda: Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.  Similar to its predecessor Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, Skyrim is a game where you can play almost any way you like.  If you want to be the hero and do the main questline as a good guy you can.  If you want to be a thieving trouble-maker you can do that too.
