    • Really? I am here, is a waste of time and $ in some things.

      I do not believe in John Carmack. He have a double face in his speeches. People need choose more and believe less, the ancient gods here, are all dead.

      • Trolls….

        Skyrim is a beautiful place for killing those creatures.. Josh, i am sorry, is time to play Skyrim to kill some members of your specie!
