The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Map

My Cup of Tea has an English translation of a map for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim that showed up on the internet with Russian captions. Here's the original for comparison. Thanks Destructoid.

JEsus this isnt an action game like Diablo3, its an CRPG. Stats matter.

Why do stats matter? Because that's how your grew up playing PnP games?

In my opinion, RPGs are, and always have been, about telling me a story. In fact, they were about telling me a story that I could get emotionally invested in.

If in its mechanics, Skyrim allows my character to develop via my actions alone, it would seem to me that in doing so they have tailored the immersion in to their world exactly toward how I play. I can't see that as a bad thing. Instead of having to choose what someone else feels is the "correct" path, I can completely do it on my own.

How is that worse than:

"I want to open my gold pouch and buy a dagger."

"Roll D100".

[Rolls D100, gets a 19]

"The cord snaps and all your gold falls to the floor. Roll D20 to see if the local rat steals a gold piece."

[Rolls D20, gets a 2]

"Alas, the rat steals your gold, punches you in the face, molests your cat and makes a rude gesture at you from its hole."
