Skyrim is probably my personal Game of the Year but one thing really irks me. Unlike Fallout: New Vegas, which did the right thing by allowing you to kill literally everyone in the game, Skyrim does the wrong thing by making important NPCs invincible.
It was really bad two days ago. I was walking through the frozen woods with my compadre Stenvar when we came upon a Stormcloak camp. Keeping with my Imperial Legion ways, I massacred everyone. Strangely enough, the last survivor was a named Stormcloak (forgot his name). He appeared to be severely injured since he was down on the ground, as human enemies tend to do when they're near death. So I went over and did a strong power attack to execute him, but he took no damage. Instead of dying, he stood back up and continued attacking.
Really? I had hoped after New Vegas that we would be done with this, but I guess we aren't. There just had to be one thing about Skyrim that really, really disappoints.
What do you guys think? Does this irritate you as well?
