as a matter of Fact I do play MMOs, and I enjoy them, I also enjoy Skyrim as a single player game. My friend who also plays it would LIKE us (just the two of us) to play Skyirm together. I realize it would be difficult because of how the game works.
It's funny how much arrogance and anger we have in the world, a person comes in here asking a perfectly innocent question and we get responses like "No they can't. THANK GOODNESS" and "Go play MMOs then"
@K Cook, how old are your sons? Skyrim is a mature single player game. There will be cutting of heads and that sort. Be sure to take that into account.
Actually Morrowind has a user made module that allows 2 players to play together but only 2. I am sure if some teenager could pull it off between classes that Bethesda could have pulled it off if they wanted to.
