"Why am I comparing a game that I enjoyed for 70 hours to grotesque sleazery? Essentially, I couldn’t come up with a better comparison. The key features of an Elder Scrolls game, Skyrim in particular, seemed to match up quite closely to the most prominent qualities of gonzo pornography: Highly visually glamorized characters and scenery (It’s Sexy!) –– Shallow details giving the illusion of coherence (It’s Fantasy!) –– Self-paced and finely categorized consumption (It’s Yours!) –––Exaggerated and unwavering mood (Hit Me Baby One More Time!)"
