By purchasing this game, you have sold your soul to Bethesda Softworks--which is a pretty even trade-off, actually.

Side effects include: Weight loss, paleness of skin, weight gain, reluctance to leave your chair, death, peeing in a bottle, ordering pizza every night because you can't stop playing long enough to make some food, loss of the ability to distinguish between fantasy and reality. Loss of Girlfriend.

Skyrim, although a massive and possibly the best game of the decade, is still argued to be worse than Morrowind. Morrowind fans are constantly raging on Skyrim fans, claiming Morrowind is far more superior. However, the game Skyrim not only includes the landmass of Skyrim, but also Cyrodil and Morrowind, and possibly other places in Tamriel. Thus, if a DLC or mod comes out that makes use of these unused landmasses, Oblivion and Morrowind fans may migrate to this new Elder Scrolls installment.
On the first day of release, game retailers were open at midnight just to sell this new game. Around 3.5 million copies were sold on the release date. Over 230,000 people were playing Skyrim on Steam on it's day of release, topping Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.
