Skyrim runs surprisingly well on meh hardware. Your MacBook Pro should be able to run it on low settings. If not, you could always use Can You Run It for some idea for how it would run.
The best experience for Skyrim really is for the PC. The mods make the game so much better.
I don’t know if this was exactly how it looked like, but I remember seeing a transparent green Gameboy Color and I thought it was the coolest looking thing ever.
That black plastic in the middle looks really nasty! It looks like that same plastic that you find on cheap cars’ interiors.
Why not both?
Depends on what kind of games we are talking about.
On an FPS, maybe it’s better to have braindead enemies because people like to shoot things for fun, but on epic RPGs, I sort of want more intelligent enemies that take a little bit more skill and strategy to defeat. The fact that they have these responses also adds to the immersion.
Obviously, the goal of making AI is to mimic how a real human being behaves. At the moment, I think that enemies in games just do not provoke any kind of emotional response when you kill them because they themselves do not have any emotions. AI companions are a little bit better in that respect, but they still feel a little mindless.
