I broke down and bought The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim for the PS3 the other day. It's a lot of fun, but a little heavy on the fantasy aspect for my taste. It's basically Fallout 3 meets The Lord of the Rings. But, it's so incredibly fun to play that I don't really mind being inundated with lore from every NPC.

After buying the game, I wandered to toy section in order to pick up a Lego kit that my daughter had been wanting. It was then that I heard a little girl shouting and giggling. As I walked down the Lego aisle, she came running out holding a Nerf sword, Captain America shield and Thor helmet. She saw me, then turned and shouted "FUS RO DAH!". Recognizing that these are the words used in Skyrim that summon a powerful concussive force, I threw myself backwards, knocking some toys off the shelves as I fell.

I regained my composure, looked at her surprised and said "You must be Dragonborn!"

She smiled and said "Don't worry. I'm a good guy!" and then ran off to continue her adventures.
