Gaming Follow Fridays #1: Skyrim
- The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
- The Elder Scrolls
In the first instalment of a regular feature that gives you the lowdown on the best gaming Twitter accounts to follow, here's the lowdwon of Skyrim in the twittersphere...
The Elder ScrollsV: Skyrim. Is it the best game of 2011? Well with such strong contenders as Dark Souls and Batman: Arkham City it won't be an easy win but if our recent hands-on time with the game is any indication, it's got a damn good chance of taking home the gold.
Anyway, with that in mind we've compilled a resource of invaluable Twitter accounts that run the gambit of all things Skyrim. From official feeds to game designers, artists, and the PR people who push the game, to strange Skyrim-styled oddities in the Twittersphere. There's someone new here to follow for everyone to help pass these last few cold days until the 11 November Skyrim release date.
