Yeah no shit, being the Archmage/Nightinghale/Listener/Companion all in one go has always seemed absurd.


That argument doesn't work with me. I have an actual character arc when I play. For example after I save the world I become disillusioned with life, I leave the Companions and roam around as a thief angry at the world, and one day I accidentally kill an innocent person...and discover I have a dark side, and so I join the Dark Brotherhood, etc, etc.
This is exactly why it's absurd. The game needs some sort of transition either in forms of dialogue choices or something. Some NPC asking why you want to join when you already joined something else, for example. The player shouldn't be the one connecting the pieces because this isn't a deliberate mystery or anything. Motives need to make sense. And I have no motives for joining every guild other than to level up which isn't a good motive at all.

Then you probably shouldn't have a motive to play the game whatsoever.

The possibility to do everything the game offers in one playthrough was always the main feature of the Elder Scrolls game series, and that's what makes it unique and different from every other RPG out there. They already changed a lot in Skyrim, offering multiple choices in some particular quests' walkthroughs, and that wasn't a good thing imo.
TES games were never supposed to have any replay value. A standard playtime of an average modern RPG is 30-40 hours. Then you can replay it a couple times. A standard playtime of a TES game is 200+ hours (or in Daggerfall case, it was way above 500 hours). That's how much time you need to fully explore the world and to do every quest.

Although I agree with Tachii's points, in how ridiculous it gets when your character can do everything and no one seemingly cares, however I just don't have the patience or time to play a game this big multiple times. I'm glad I can do it all in one go.

I'm personally taking a break from the game for a for weeks, if not months. I've spent about 100 hours playing several characters, which I've later decided to scrap; either because I fucked up in some stupid way (I'm a bit OCD, I reckon), a glitch stuck in my quest log or statistics annoyed me, or I just disliked my choice of skills, etc.

Time to return to Dead Space 2 and get the platinum for the game!

Presonally I think they wanted to show that since you're destined for greatness one way doesn't mean you can play a major role for the other factions that have no conflicting errands to do aside form the Legion and Stormcloaks. By that you could be a leader in every faction and only the guards will fully know about each one you have, aside from talking about your skills, armor, and how they got an arrow to the knee, and someone stealing your sweet roll, etc.

Overall it feels like the Bards College ordeal is kind of like a poor excuse to be a faction since they pretty much have you keep the items you were told to look for. Well that and Some of the Thieves Guild random missions as well. I mean one point I had to go and rob a certain house, but it ws inacessable since I did the Civil War quest past the defence of Whiterun.

Was anyone else disappointed that the thieves guild question line didn't involve, you know, more thefts? I remember oblivion it was steal this, steal that, don't come back until you have sold 200 gold worth of stolen goods, now steal this and that, now don't come back until you've sold 500 gold worth of stolen goods, but Skyrim had you steal like two things, and the rest revolved around trying to kill someone.

Pretty much that part of the Thieves Guild felt more along the line of a very drawn out Dadric Questline that could of been much better though. The Thieves Guild in Oblivion was more along the line of steal this, steal that, ruin the reputation of one of the guard captains, and the epic steal and Elder Scroll.

Oh speaking of the Elder Scroll, to think that it was a questline ordeal in witch you had to go underground to actually look for it. That and having another somewhat major quest underground as well which I couldn't honestly understand at all.

Oh yeah sure you can role play it but it seems kinda weird to have so many high hierarchical positions at the same time in important Cyrodil establishments theere shpuld be some kind of conflicts. I guess you can hit guild members to get expelled.

Modding scene seems bad, both Morrowind and Oblivion had interesting stuff even before the construction set was out instead we get texture re-skins, I'm losing hope.

Uh, Morrowinds CK came on the disc with the game. And the Oblivion CK actually came out before release day or on the release day(IIRC)..

Really memory must be fuzzy then I was sure the CK wasn't available at release for those games, get I'll wait and see.

I gave up on the game after about 120 hours of gameplay while trying a ranger/thief and a mage.

Mage was boring as hell since many cool spells from Morrowind are gone. Combined this with the overpowered enchanting and the game turns into a hack n' slash.

Then I went as a thief but that got boring too. Thieves Guild quests were boring as hell and had nothing to do with being a THIEF. Dark Brotherhood was ok, especially the plot but the actual killing were a joke since the AI detection was retarded. I could be sneaking in front of my victim and yet it still could not see me. It's a shame really since Skyrim and Oblivion are the only TES games where I can be a thief without having to rely on magic skills

So in the light of this disappointment I pumped Morrowind back up (with some Overhaul Graphic Mod). It's much better than Skyrim and I am enjoying it more with my thief.

Awww, typical old wRPG fans.<3 And how they downrate any video that has anything remotely Japanese to it. There's nothing that makes Japanese games feel more welcome in the Western world. I used to think that the argument against jRPGs was that the "gameplay is so much better. You get to explore a world and interact with anything and just go wild doing whatever you want to do. That's really roleplaying!", but they taught me a thing or two, it's really because those glorious, wonderful wRPG superfans, know that anime and anime fans are inferior and must be ousted from the video game industry. People who like Jap shit just wish that they were Asian, no self respect at all. Because Bethesda and Bioware have superior designs and are totally always flattering to Western people. Glorious Western potatoface, azns keep out! They sure told us. You get those evil weeaboo modders, glorious Dragonborn sons.

I hope you're not serious. It's like taking the worst out of a group to justify your extreme views. Reminds me of silly playstation vs xbox fanboyism. And it's youtube. Come on dude. The site with millions of viewers clicking on thumbnails with a hint of boobs on them (including me, rofl) and getting trolled or rickrolled.

Hnnng. Can't wait to roll out some of those when the expansions come swooping down.

But lol, that Tera thing just seems so out of place there. SKYRIM IS FOR THE NORDS and all. At least I can't recall all the super kawaii loli elf mod things in Oblivion looking so different form the rest.

Now this is more my kind of mod, holy shit. Add this together with the dragon mounts that will almost certainly be coming at some point, and you're the baws.

In reviews, I keep hearing people bitch about the UI on the PC version. Am I right to think that if you have a computer that's powerful enough to handle Skyrim, that you're not stupid enough to use a keyboard and mouse to play it? That you'd get a controller for the game!? I mean, for fuck sakes. The UI is fine on the PC; you're just not supposed to be gaming with a keyboard.

Btw, I'm on level 47, atm.

Don't see any reason to use a controller though, mouse and keyboard works just fine, even with the clunky UI. And you get used to it fast enough. Plus you'll need the keyboard anyways to use the console and fix the ever present bugs, so then at least you won't have to swap between all the time.

With RPG's like this, I can't use the keyboard without wanting to bash my head in. Regardless, any UI complaints people have for the PC are easily solved through an external controller, so these complaints aren't warranted.

Anyways, I've haven't needed to use the keyboard with this game yet. I haven't come across any bugs either. Maybe that's Steam self-updating the game.

Btw, why couldn't you just spend $30 on a bus-powered 360 controller? Makes gameplay 1000x easier.

Also, am I the only one who's toggled the way you view things? I don't know what it's called, but basically I toggled the way I view things to where I see everything like a camera following my character, rather than through binocular vision. Every youtube video I've seen on Skyrim shows the character viewing the scenery through their eyes, rather through the camera-perspective.

I also prefer using a 360 controller over the keyboard / mouse combo, altough I keep the keyboard on hand for console commands.

I prefer first person view because, and i think many will agree with me, that the third person view is clunky at best. Plus the first person perspective makes it feel like you're the one doing stuff rather than a character you're controller lol

Can't stand controllers most of the time really, at least not where shooting and aiming is a integral part of the game. Plus with a proper mouse and a gliding mousepad, I just feel like I have far better control than what a controller could give me.
Also prefer FP view. Really boosts the immersion, plus makes aiming and spotting traps easier.

I've heard controllers aren't desirable in FPS's. Nevertheless, the aid of a controller in RPG's seems kinda integral. When you're fighting an enemy, or multiple enemies at that, using a controller fitted for that kind of gameplay, as opposed to your keyboard and mouse where everything is scattered and fashioned in a disorganized manner, works better in the long-run. Yeah, you can get used to using the keyboard/mouse, but generally, you'll never be as good due to the disorganization of everything. That's my view, at least. I've used my keyboard for RPG's before (Mass Effect), and it just doesn't compare to a game controller.

96 Hours in 10 days or someting. It could be 4-5 if I didn't go to school :P I want to say it's the best game I played but , there is something that prevents me from that. Re-playability ? ( lol English ftw ) It doesn't have that . F*k that misc missions they suck . I think Rome : Total War is still the best game for me . You can re-play it over and over and still not get bored

I actually find it weird playing RPGs in consoles. Or specifically with a controller. Since I usually emulate now I play using the keyboard for console RPGs (that are available in consoles with emulators).


The only games where I see controllers having a real benefit are sports games like NBA 2K12 and FIFA 12.

Definitely best for FPS, and being a first person RPG with ranged weapons that require accuracy, the same mouse benefits also counts here. Of course, if it didn't have this, then I'd agree that a controller might be just as useful.
Besides, it's hardly disorganized if you map it the right way. I've got the shout and magic stuck in on my mouse side buttons, so then I've got all attack related in the right hand and movement, menu and console in the left.

Which is easily solved by a bus-powered controller. PC gaming can easily supersede consoles.

I can see how a mouse would be comparable to an analog stick, but the other options (that can't be covered with the left and right hand clickers) have to be mapped on your keyboard. Yeah, I mapped my controls for mass effect, but really... Baman, try using a 360 controller with Skyrim. You'll be pleasantly surprised. You're the first person I've met that's satisfied playing RPG's with a keyboard.

FPS games are 100X better with a mouse and keyboard, and strategy games are virtually unplayable on anything OTHER than m/k. However, Skyrim is not a FPS, and a lot of the game is swinging a sword or shooting magic which dont need to be very acurate (archery might benefit though). So IMO a controller works quite well with Skyrim.

Games like Mass Effect or Dragon Age, while being in third person (to which I generally prefer a controller) benefit from mouse and keyboard because of the amount of hotkeys you need.

Too bad the official HR texture pack breaks nearly every face/body texture mod in existence. And I had just gotten back into Skyrim again with my new Redguard. Sadness.
At least there are other fan made texture packs that are even better than the official.

Pics included.

The HR texture pack makes it look alot better, I still installed, a bunch of new Mods. I highly recommend the Deadly Dragons MOD it makes dragons harder and adds a bunch of new dragons to the game and the dragons actually use more shouts.

and SkyUI makes the inventory system alot better.
It doesn't think, it doesn't feel, it doesn't laugh or cry..... All it does from dusk till dawn is make the soldiers die.

I'm not installing anything through the Steam workshop just yet as I don't want something to mess up my already installed mods. I'll probably try and finish the game w/ my current assortment of mods and then unistall them all and try out the steam workshop (should have some better offerings by then)

Everything from the Steam workshop comes in the form of a .esp. So it's not like it's going to overwrite any of your other files.

It's pretty funny that people on Steam are flipping shit over mods that have been out for months already.

Though, TESO takes place 1000 years before Skyrim does. Is Skyrim getting another DLC or?
