This thread is about all things Skyrim. Due to the massive size of the game I felt it needed it's own thread. This thread is to talk about thoughts, comments, reviews, self progress in the game and the like. I picked the Imperial class mostly because I love the straight combat of hand to hand rather than magic or stealth.
I got the game last week and have only played for a little but and I love the game. I do have a few problems with it though. 1. Your character doesn't talk which bothers me. After playing Mass Effect all summer and having my character talk up a storm, I feel that in Skyrim I'm just a bunch of pixels that looks like a guy killing things and people without any emotion. I know that in Zelda Link doesn't talk but he has emotion during cutscenes. 2. The combat feels very delayed. Maybe it's just with my PC but I have to hold down the attack button for a second or so and then my character takes out his weapon and attacks. Like I said, it may just be my PC but I don't like it. 3. The menus seem like a console version that was ported to the PC which is the case but I feel they should have made it better suited to the PC with the keyboard and the mouse.
Other than those problems I think the game is great. The graphics are stunning and the world is just so big there's so much to do. So many sidequests to do that you can do other things before heading out and continuing the main story. I do find it a little confusing though when it comes to smithing/forging, alchemy and making new potions with ingrediants. I can't wait to continue this game and see what more it has instore for me.
