When it comes to games I pine for that don't exist. I'd go for a herb gathering game in a heart beat if it could recapture the feel of the herbalism in WoW.

Have you played Skyrim?

At the moment I'm trying to regulate my gaming by avoiding games that eat up too much of my life. Skyrim is on the list of games I'm aiming to skip.

Short answer: No :).

Edit: I've done a little research. Sounds like a great system. If I change tactics in the quest to cut down my gaming time I may well give it a go.
