DO NOT FINISH MAIN STORY LINE! *Spoiler* I have noticed that all the positive feedback is from those who have not completed the main story line and that is probably a good thing. I decided to just plow through the main story line and when I got to the end, goes really quick too, I couldn't believe it was the end, really its the end? I need to google that to make sure...what it is!? But it ends like any other quest! Nothing special at all. What? I was upset for awhile a real let down probably the worst in history! But...but after thinking about it perhaps it was the right design choice. If the ending was epic you would be done with it? I suppose the reason for such an anti-climatic ending is so that you can now live in the world as Dragonslayer. I guess that's cool. Yes I know there are hundreds of hours of game play yet to be had but what a bummer of an "ending" I seriously wish I never played it through. A part of me is still hoping I was tricked into thinking the main story line ended with Dragonslayer...tell me I am wrong? Please.
Yikes! This, Zelda, Kingdoms of Amalur, and Mass Effect 3. That is going to be my entire 2012.
My friend hates Fallout 3 but is looking into getting Oblivion because he doesn't want to get Skyrim for so much money if he doesn't like it. Do you think he will like Oblivion if he doesn't like Fallout.
Loving this game. I almost regret SWTOR being released in about a month. I could see spending tons of time in this game.
Saying Skyrim is the greatest game to date, is an understatement. This game covers every aspect of a good game and makes it great. The awe-struck moments are rivaled by no other. For example. After about 4 or 5 hours in i was wandering over some plain. When i saw a dragon in the distance. Now you can imagine that in 4-5 hours you don't have time to level up significantly to take on a dragon, but I didn't care, it was my first time seeing a dragon, and i did as anyone else would do. Run to it head first. But as i came closer i saw it was attacking a pack of wolves. So i stood in some bushes and watched at a distance. The wolves came from every angle seeming to overwhelm the dragon. When it suddenly threw its wings against the ground and thrust itself up, letting out a huge blast of flames engulfing every wolf. But it did so in such a graceful and elegant manor that it was like watching a National Geographic scene in slow motion. Then it drops back to the ground and lets out a screech as it picks one wolf up and flies off. Naturally i tried to follow it before i lost it in the dense woods. But at that moment i was even more immersed in the game than i had been that 4-5 hours prior. I'm unsure if every dragon in Skyrim is unique, however, the thought of coming in contact with that dragon drives me to be stronger in every aspect of the game. Learning everything i can so that when i do see him again. I'll be ready.Things like this in a game make you want so badly to live in a world like this. As frightening as it would be, the epic adventures and awe-struck moments would be even more rewarding. Bethesda has truly outdone themselves with this. And set the standard for any company now or in the future looking to take on this genre. If you can call it a specific genre. This only makes me drool over what the future of this series holds.
The day this game came out I got and upset stomach and mad well... You get the picture. We still don't know what I ate to cause it, Personally I think it was a side effect from playing this game.
Skyrim is one of if not the best game I have ever played. Oblivion is just a downright disgrace compared to both Skyrim and Morrowind.
I don't own the game but watched my buddy play it for a good while and fell in love with the game.I tried out oblivion and in 2 hours got bored of it. I managed to get a couple of hours out of Skyrim and knew for sure that the game was special. I was amazed at how awestruck I was at the main and side stories especially when they referenced things that I knew from watching friends play oblivion.Everything in that game seems unscripted even the scripted parts. You get so drawn in that you can play at 11am on Friday and won't notice time pass till you get up to pee or poo.
The main reason I haven't picked up this game yet is the pile of other great games coming out right now. I know that between a game this large and my OCD about doing everything in a game I'd be stuck playing it for a long, long time. Not that that's a bad thing but I do want to play all the other things too!To me this looks like a game I'll get and probably keep in wraps until the Great Summer Game Slowdown when I can devote a lot of time to it.
First of all, I've never been a fan of RPG's or dungeon crawlers. The top down perspective and waiting to see how many points my strike made just drove me up a wall. A friend of mine described it best as video gaming for accountants. But when I saw the visuals and how the combat flowed, I wanted to give Skyrim a try. 25hrs into it I know I've barely scratched the surface and my wife now makes fun of me for loving a dungeon crawler. I love this game and I keep coming back to it over MW3, BF3, and Batman AC (until more dlc of course). Great job Bethesda! Skyrim= Game of the Year!
This game is epic. I have only put 5 hours in and sadly due to other responsibilities I won't be able to pick it up again till the holidays. If there will be any faults in Skyrim I foresee some NPC being less developed and engaging. Its been said before and honestly its the only flaw I can see at the moment. Presently key characters in the game have more depth but it would have been nice that even the bar made in Whiterun had some depth. The game is so massive the two things I am most happy to see is fast travel and limitless dragons. The introduction of fast travel is not a cheat. I'll explore like crazy but when I need to complete missions it's a huge time saver with such an expansive world. I presumed when I purchased the game that there were a set number of dragons and they each had their own territory. To learn that I could be fighting dragons till the end of time is satisfying. Especially of how easily I dispatched the first one.
How about this for an unscripted event. Fighting an Ice dragon AND a Fire dragon at the same time while in some small little town with the villagers and guards helping me kill them both. Was pretty epic.
i really want this game. im not into going melee the whole entire time, combat looks pretty bland except for when it does those little kill action scenes or whatever. but i know i want it for PC. and while my laptop meets the requirements to play it (and i have a friend with a similar laptop playing it) i want to wait until i build my PC, which might not happen until Spring of next year. on the bright side, that will allow time for bugs to be fixed, plenty of mods to come out, and some DLCs and whatnot.does look like an amazing game, and beautiful on PC. watching Mitch's gamefront walkthrough and it makes me want it more.
Skyrim is indeed a great game, it has it's flaws like some other posters have posted already but could you imagine if Bethesda took the time for the PC side and made it look like The Witcher 2 or even Battlefield 3! heheI guy can wish right? :PThank god for the Modding community!! I Cannot wait to see what you come out with!!
He has a point about the absorbing you in the game with long stretches of gameplay. 68 hours in....simply amazing. I now subsequently have a cold. Worth it.
My only problem with Elder Scrolls Is the story and characters. All the characters are there for, is to simply ply you with another quest. My problem is Other then the fact that I've been given something to do, I don't feel an undying urge to help these cardboard cutout characters, no one has a defined personality. Take for instance I ran into this little boy who thinks I'm demon he summoned to kill the headmistress of his orphanage. My choice is yes or no, I picked yes just to continue the mission, I get to the orphanage and the women is really mean but she doesn't deserve to die, but I have no choice no other resolution but to kill this lady (with no repercussions or even traumatized kinds), who probably needs nothing more then some good ole fashioned Commander Shepard therapy. There is no character development or in many instances choices to resolution. But its still a fine game.
Watching this directly after a 6 hour "stretch", I agree with every point. This game is amazing and absolutely one of if not the best game I have ever played. Every aspect of the game seems brilliantly designed to keep you immersed and keep you having fun. Any game that keeps me so immersed that I forget that I'm hungry, or that I havent stood up in 6 hours shows how much of a masterpiece this game really is.
There IS something to compare this game to: OBLIVION.It looks just like it.
I've been playing Skyrim and I have really been enjoying it.... however I don't think I like it as much as a lot of the critics and fans do. That being said even though It's not my favorite game from this year, I can understand why others like it as much as they do.
The most remarkable thing quest wise was I was talking to a NPC and he's like I need you to go grab this item from a dungeon So a dialog choice comes up and I choose "oh you mean this item" the NPC is surprised by thisThis would not have happen if I would not have taken on a sub quest earlier on that was kinda of hidden
