New smash-hit Viking sensation Valheim is definitely not my kind of game, reader. It is a survival game, a genre I don’t generally enjoy because tending to the needs of the pork sack my thoughts are locked in is tedious enough in real life, so I definitely don’t want to do it in my virtual down time. I mean, I already have to do it in my down time anyway, and worrying that my viking is cold while also worrying that my actual toes are cold seems a dangerous thing to do.
It’s also a game you are encouraged to play with other people, and I am deeply suspicious of other people. So on the face of it, Valheim does not have much to offer me. But I’ll tell you this much: I think it looks amazing.
