Fantastic thoughts on how Skyrim establishes itself as a world and pulls the player in! What did you think of the game’s opening? Join the discussion!
Welcome to Part 2 of my “First Steps” project, which focuses on restriction, guidance, and freedom in the initial moments of open world games. You may find it helpful to visit Part 1 for an introduction to the project and an overview of my line of inquiry.

I hope you enjoy my observations and reflections on the opening of Skyrim!
