Don't Panic, It's Actually Good News
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is set to offer a near-infinite amount of content due to its sprawling game world and respawning dragons, but Bethesda's traditional speed run competition has set the bar for those who plan to speed through it. A representative from Bethesda's QA department, Sam Bernstein, took on a Jeff Browne from the dev team in a no-holds barred sprint to the finish, clocking the mains story in two hours and sixteen minutes. Interestingly, both players took different routes through the game. [Bethesda]
Believe it or not, this is testament to a very, very long storyline. To compare, Fallout 3's speedrun competition was wrapped up in just 75 minutes.
