But to answer your question not sure why its addicting I'm at a level 75 with my 1st character witch is a Breton and really haven't started my level 1 or 2 argonian. I think its addicting because of the vast world you can explore and the things you can do in it. Im pretty stoked about Dawnguard and patch 1.6 and waiting like you guys for it! BTW didn't mean to try and derail the thread in anyway just thought id post that one dose not simply.....! But yeah not sure why Skyrims addicting heard the same about Oblivion being equally addicting.
