Skyrim Only Takes 2 Hours To Beat...If You're Special
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.
