In contemporary culture, the term sometimes refers inexactly or metaphorically to women who are presumed to wish they were Skyrim.
Girl 2: "Leave him, I left my boyfriend when he got Skyrim and spared myself the trouble of competing with it. You just can't win."
Girl 1: "I just wish he would love me almost as much as he loves Skyrim..."
Girl 1 is suffering from a sub-stage of Skyrim Envy called Skyrim Denial (the stage in which the girl still thinks she can actually compete with Skyrim before she comes to the realization that she cannot).
Girl 2 realized that she could not compete with Skyrim.
