Skyrim, my soon to be only FPRPG love

For those who don't know what FPRPG means, I'm sure you can figure it out.  Er, if you don't I sort of, might have just made it up.  First person roleplaying game.  Some people would just say RPG, but I choose to designate it as a first person one, mainly due to the gameplay being revolved around that particular mechanic.  Anyway, I just found out that Skyrim has 70+ voice actors filling around 110 roles.  If that doesn't mean much to you, I'll put it in perspective; the previous Elder Scrolls game, Oblivion only had 12 main voice actors.  Just 12.  It did really well for itself, and won game of the year, but only 12 actors provided all of the voice overs two of those voices were Sean Bean, and Patrick Stewart.  So literally only 10 other people acted for all the denizens in Oblivion.  I can only imagine how great Skyrim will be in contrast due to it's overall higher production value.  It's going to be great!  For now, I'll be playing a lot of MW3 multiplayer and spec ops online, but in just two days, it's Dragonborn party time!  Wooooooo!
