Is Skyrim really that fun?

Ive debating picking it up for my wife. Im currently hooked on World of XYZ games now...

If it has "World of" in front of it, its probably awesome.

Everyone I know who's played it loves it. Some people still prefer Oblivion. I've only recently started playing Oblivion, but I don't have anything that'll run Skyrim. From what I've seen of it and what I've played of Oblivion, Skyrim's gotta kick all kinds of ass. It's not an MMORPG, so if World games are your thing, your mileage may vary.

Well, I never got tired of sneaking around caves and shooting people with my bow that inexplicably launches them through the air like they've been hit by a bus. I giggled like a school girl every time; especially if I could launch them over a railing.

But if that's not your thing, you can play it a different way. The game's skill system is so flexible it can be an entirely different experience depending upon how you choose to play it.

It's Elder Scrolls, but with everything weird about the previous ones fixed. So your mage doesn't have to level up heavy armor in order to get hit points anymore, etc. It's a sprawling RPG world, not as tight as something like Dragon's Age, so if you like that type of thing, you'll like Skyrim.

That is pretty much it. I like both Skyrim and Dragon Age: Origins (not the abomination of Dragon Age 2). The difference is really in game play style and where they hail from. Skyrim is the culmination of Computer RPGs with pen and paper/DnD sensibilities thrown in. Dragon Age: Origins is the culmination of pen and paper/DnD gaming, with some CRPG sensibilities thrown in. I like them both for the fact they are ambitious and well done. I would really like to see the best of both, but they are both pretty damn fun as it is.

Bull. You still get stuck in terrain at random times (this has happened since Arena), that wonderful knockback mechanic still leads to corpses with quest vital items end up below the world and unlootable (seen that one since Daggerfall) and it is still meta-stable during long play sessions. Also, area transitions are about as slow as all of the elevator riding in the original Mass Effect, and there are an absolutely gratuitous number of them.

Don't get me wrong, it's fun, but Bethesda can't program for shiat. Never have been able to. I sure hope that none of the morons who work on the coding of their game engines are allowed in the same zipcode as the developers of their MMO, or they are going to need an average of game master per player to fix the things that all the other games "fixed" by having you reload a clean save.

Unfortunately, they introduced a whole flood of new flaws. Mages don't need to wear armor, but there is no penalty for doing so, and you're actually better off since due to their short duration, remembering to keep up your armor spells can be tedious. Then there's the completely lopsided balance of magic vs sword and shield that allows you to use the crafting system to make powerful weapons and armor with no equivalent bonuses for magic. The armor system in general is also completely broken to the point where you are basically wearing paper mache until you get within 100 points of the cap. Then there's the fact that the type of armor you wear really has no lasting impact on your survivability. I made a character that used only hide armor and still ended up at the armor and magic resistance cap to prove the point. Many of the perk trees are also virtually worthless and tedious to level unless you use some sort of exploit (pickpocketing, lockpicking and mercantile are the worst offenders).

The game can be fun, but it gets boring when no matter what your starting intentions, your character inevitably gets shoehorned into stealth/archery just to survive.

So anyone else play Dawnguard yet? What did you think of it?

I thought it was ok. It was interesting and I enjoyed some of the quests, but I didn't think it brought as much to the table as it could have considering it took 7 months to get out (and usual DLC is cranked out every 3 months).

I was hoping it would involve the Thalmor vs. Empire storyline. Like all out war breaks out between them and you have to pick sides and destroy one. I still kill every Thalmor patrol I see.

Did anyone else think the new flying Chaurus Reapers were exact models of the cazadores, just reskinned?

I have enjoyed it, there were plenty of goodies thrown in along with the new story line. I don't know if it was part of the DLC or just one of the routine updates that I missed, but the Falmer are a lot more fleshed out now. They have better armor now, their underground villages are more detailed, and there are more books dealing with them and their downfall. I've even found some Falmer books that you can trade to the book collector at the college. Plus you meet the *spoiler omitted*, who has a lot to say about them and their history during the Vampire quests. I bet the next DLC is dwemer heavy. Something needs to happen there.

The magic path vs sword and shield path is really lobsided. You can make out alchemy, smithing, and enchanting and make some crazy powerful weaposn and armor. I maxed out archery and I have a bow that does 500+ damage and taking True Shot potion plus apparel enchanments makes a really crazy powerful weapon that has taken some fun out of the game.

Mercantile is worth it! But I only did the 'vendors buy anything perk' and 'all vendors have an extra 1000'. I've got around 300K in gold on the PS3. I finished the thieves guild quests and I find a lot of gems to unload. Plus, I maxed out smithing and can make armor worth 2-3k that cost me next to nothing. Kind of nice to have a big pile of gold. Lockpicking and pickpocketing is lame, just kill the guy and take it or use lockpicking potion or enchanted apparel that improves lock picking.

Yea I know what you're talking about and found that to be the most interesting part of the DLC

*Spoilers* (highlight)
I really liked learning about the Snow elves downfall. I was not expecting to meet him.

The horse spell and dragon call you pick up in the soul realm (or whatever it's called) is really handy. Shadowmere died on me all the time because he thought he could take on ancient dragons.

The crossbow was alright. It was fun at the beginning, but the lack of being able to craft one and only having the regular/dwarven ones put it in my weapons crate. Now I rock a sweet dragonbone bow (with craftable dragonbone arrows FINALLY).

I like the radiant quest of hunting down vampires. My favorite are the ones in towns trying to act like normal people. Those are more assassination hits than just going gung-ho into a cave/hideout.

The vampire follower you get is also a great character. Found her really interesting.


Overall I did like it, I guess I just expected more. I was expecting a "Shivering Isles" and got more of a "Knights of the Nine"

I always liked Morrowind for the "allows you to bend it over your knee and completely break it" aspect. Floating rock prison? That's nice, I'll just drink my potion of fortify athletics +9001 to reach it right after I go shove a knife through the back of Vivec's skull.

Yea, I created a bow with hitpoints in the 2 million using the alchemy/enchant exploit jsut to see it in action. It just sits in my chest at home now because it's way too over-powered. The only exploited piece I use is some boots which up my carrying capacity to 3,000 because I hate having to run back and forth to my house just because I killed a dragon and picked up his heavy ass bones.

I play it on PS3 and the only weird thing that happens are some potions that I created, like +90% to two-armed, I get a little message at teh top saying something along the lines that I'm too powerful for the point to work. I don't have much in skills for two-handed so I don't get why that pops up. I have archery potions that are the same, around 90%+ damage increase, and I'm maxed out on archery but no messages pop up. I only maxed out the basic enchanting perk so I can make some ridiculously powerful potions and to sell them. The whole alchemy, smithing, and enchanting is fun to play wtih but really out of whack.

-Hope the bugs in the jar are something epic and not just something to collect
-Can't wait for DawnGuard to come out on PS3!!!

I finally broken down and made an exploit set too for my "barbarian" character. He was already level 70 and had maxed most of the skills so I figured, why not? Ended up with a set giving him 100% casting cost reduction for each school of magic, max magic resist, muffle, some absurd amount of hp/stamina/carry capacity and bonuses to archery, 1h and 2h weapons and unarmed. While it can be fun walking up to a giant and punching it off a cliff, it got boring pretty quick.

You mean like this?

Punching Dragons in Skyrim

I made that video over the weekend. Had been building my character for archery and stealth, but got sidetracked by alchemy and enchanting. Got really sidetracked by it. Like, 12 hours of sidetracked. Next thing I knew, I was making ridiculous potions and had my enchanting skill tree maxed. Was getting ready to head up to bed for the night, so I was at the Breezehome in Whiterun putting away all my junk into the chest and I saw "Gloves of the Pugilist." +10 damage to unarmed attacks. And I couldn't resist, went to the mage's office up in Dragonsreach to see if they could be disenchanted. And they could. So I drank up one of my stupid fortify enchanting potions (+5,000 or so %) and made a pair of fur gauntlets with fortify unarmed or whatever the enchantment was called. Ended up with over 2 million points of unarmed damage. Put on a ring I had that fortified health and stamina, then stripped off all other apparel and went hunting for dragons and giants.

I've got a few hours in, character's up to Level 35. And then, all the junk I had stored in Breezehome just vanished. My chest and alchemy lab are empty.

I need to start again from the start, as I lost 3 dragon priest masks... I'm just not quite ready to do so. I have no idea why all my worldly goods are gone, but I'm gonna kill Lydia for letting it happen.

Dynascape: Is Skyrim really that fun?

Ive debating picking it up for my wife. Im currently hooked on World of XYZ games now...

If it has "World of" in front of it, its probably awesome.


I used to play World of XYZ games like you, but then I took an arrow in the knee.

I gave Skyrim 5 hours of my time. It is a slightly prettier Oblivion and thus didn't hold my interest as much as I wish it would have. Also, the voice acting and character models/animations are still absolutely wretched.

It's not as good as Morrowind, but it's much, much better than the disappointment that was Oblivion.

Just started my second playthrough. First was basically all archer and stealth daggers, in this one I am vowing not to use stealth at all. Straight up long sword and heavy armor, will see how it goes.
