Ranking the Side Questlines in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Ranking the Side Questlines in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

I have been playing The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim over on Twitch for the last month or so. Typically in the past when I played this game, I never played past Act I before restarting the game. So, this is the first time I've really ever explored outside of that. And man have I explored outside that. I've done practically every side questline (the only ones I haven't fully done are the ones without stories or connected quests), became a Thane everywhere I could, and bought a house everywhere I could (one of them I still need to finish building). So, I thought it would be a fun idea now that I've done all the story side quests that I would rank them from "it was alright" to "this was my favorite thing to do".…

Elder Scrolls V Skyrim: Imperial Legion vs Storm Cloaks

I've been really into playing The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim lately. Like way more than I'm into playing Dragon Age: Inquisition. Mainly just because I played the same level or section of the game like ten times, and it made me really annoyed. So I'm taking a break to refind my love of the game. So in the meantime I'm playing Skyrim. Which I've only ever completed using speedrun tactics, and I'm trying not to do that this time and I've definitely gotten into it. And wanted to write a few posts about it. For today's post as you can tell from the title, I wanted to focus on Imperial Legion vs. Stormcloaks. More so just comparing the two main groups in the civil war over Skyrim. There are several clans that fall on either side of the rebellion (Battle-born and Gray-Mane being located in Whiterun, Black-Briars of Riften, and Silver-Bloods of Markarth).…
