@altimaden wtf? you pretty much just described EVERY rpg. -- I described the questlines in their entirety. Whats written there is skyrim in text format. Bethesda got lazy and dumbed down a masterpiece to generic garbage for the masses. Didnt play morrowind? You'd rate oblivion highly. Sure it beats dragon age, gothic, fable etc. But spend hundreds of hours on both, read up on lore, explore every cell in the game, explore every quest and niche then play skyrim and you'll feel raped. Literally, like someone pulling down your pants and putting it in you. It's slack and lazy and I cant think of a single instance that matches TES of old.
Morrowind 5 minutes in, an elf falls from the sky and dies. you loot his corpse and find scrolls that fortify acrobatics 6500000 and a journal. you pop one and shoot up into the air like he did. Its lols, cute and awesome. Oblivions darkbrotherhood makes you fall in love with every character in the guild, sends you on kill X as well as go to a mansion with 5 other people, they think they're doing a treasure hunt. Eliminate them all without them seeing you. You can use text to trick them into paranoia, stealth/poison anything. Mainquest oblivion i thought martin would summon akatosh using the amulet, no he turned into a dragon, i was like zomg! Since nobody will read this, ill spoil skyrim. Entire main quest. Kill a dragon, train with greybeards, escort the blades, learn kill dragon spell from greybeards dragon, trap a dragon and ride him to meet bad dragon. defeat bad dragon and he flies away. Seriously, apart from trapping the dragon, i was like QQQ done this before fags.
It's good you like it. Your first TES experience is prob the best as it goes downhill. I guess i just get mad when developers re-invent the wheel and paint it another colour then sell it to us for $90 aud then while we endure their flawed product for months, they release dlc that fixes the problems we've had over the last three months for the low sum of $10 aud.
@volt Fash it sounds like you don't like any game from all of your reviews/opinions... Just saying----- I dont like any game that's been done before without any improvement or niche. Graphics updates doesnt justify a new game. I want to buy a game and say 'Wow this is a new and amazing concept'
The following games did something
Farenheight/Indego Phrophecy = Innovated character control (never done before or after, + first guitar hero)
The Guild 2: = innovated political intrigue + rpg + resource trading/construction + the sims
Europa Universalis = World map stratergy
Capitalism 2 = Business sim
Starcraft 1 = RTS
Halflife = FPS
Mount and blade = RPG+RTS+FPS with the best combat mechanics i've ever experienced
Dota = invented a new game genre
bf1942 = Combined multiplayer fps with vehicle combat including air.
morrowind = voice acting (for me at least)
Hitman = first action based stealth game i played. Disguises + assassination are awesome.
Honourable mention for story; 'Second sight', 'morrowind' 'kotor 1 and 2'
These are foundation games that 'broke' their respective genres. Nothing compared to them before hand, everything after is a replica with negligable improvement.
