Nothing as far as I can tell. Considering Beethoven went deaf, Mozart was off his rocker and Paganini was accused of practicing the occult you'd have thought that they'd be a bit more open minded. Haven't played skyrim, I don't have that kind of time, but this is great news I think for games. If people are taking parts of games that seriously then it'll be an attitude that hopefully filters through to more people.
As for the complainants, who cares? There are always plenty of people who view themselves as the last bastion of taste and tradition and the only defenders of the soul of something they love. This is usually coupled with an insatiable desire to complain about anything they see as a threat. I can only assume it must be exhausting continually leaping onto their high horses but they have to have something to do, so let them go all quixotic and tilt at whatever windmills they see this week. Something new will come along soon and they'll forget all about this for another year.
