Eurogamer reports that Skyrim is the best-selling game this month in the UK, placing it at the top of the Christmas charts, and it's the first such game in eight years that wasn't published by EA or Activision. So which is Bethesda in the above image, we ask you; the dragon or the man?

With new Call of Duty games assaulting us annually, it's no wonder Activision's been having a good run, and EA's never far behind (or ahead, depending on the year). We have to wonder, though, if The Elder Scrolls would be doing the same thing if Bethesda gave sloppy birth to a new entry every year like their competitors do. Those games are buggy enough with half a decade between releases, but would gamers still buy in if they weren't quite as grand in scope, in exchange for less waiting for every new title?
