[VIDEO] Niiiiice: First gameplay footage of Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

As the work of the folks behind Oblivion and Fallout, Elder Scroll V: Skyrim deserves the utmost attention of those who like their game worlds atmospheric and big. With its snowy vistas and pine-filled forests, Skyrim looks like it does the job.

This first ever gameplay video (below) shows a title with visuals some way ahead of Oblivion and Fallout, huge-ass dragons, and a spot of bracing combat. Frankly, Bethesda may as well take the money from my wallet now.
