I bet you can’t guess what I’ve been playing the last couple of weeks.  Spoiler warning, it’s been Skyrim.  Lots and lots of Skyrim.  Also, I figured a comic about food would be appropriate on the Thanksgiving weekend.

This comic focuses on something I’ve found quite odd in the game (as well as in Fallout 3 and Oblivion), that the hero character is able to pause the game and chow down on an entire buffet.  I wondered how this actually worked in the game.  Do all of the enemies just wait around for Dovahkiin to eat several bowls of soup, a couple elder cheese wheels and some horker loaf?  It probably makes those bandits hungry, that’s why they hate you so much.
