Skyrim

Post by Dragon78114 on Sat Nov 26, 2011 5:19 am

I have yet to get this game, but how is it? I am resisting to buy it with all my might because I know I have too much school to worry about.

I traded it in for the Halo Anniversary. Smile

I'm not a fan of the open-story thing... I didn't like any of the Fall Outs, Oblivion, etc. I don't mind dynamic paths/endings, or consequences of actions: I love games like Mass Effect and Fable. But the lack of central story--or at least an obvious one--make me lose interest.

Shock

I thought you were...

Well, I certainly am a fan of those types of games; I like being able to venture as your own character rather than adopt an archetypal character who plays in a forced, scripted world. Like that upseats me about Dragon Age 2; you can't do anything after you finished the main story. I knew that would happen because of D Age Origins so that is why I spent virtually all my time completing side quests... haha...

I don't own the game myself but everyone I know who owns it loves it. They're all amazed by it. Seriously amazed by it.

I bought the game the day before it was officially released (because the game shop owner likes me), bought the guide (which is under an inch thick)...

Never played the game or taken the guide out of the plastic.

...um, why Morb? Isn't that counter-intuitive with a video game?

*shrugs*

I don't know why I don't like that genre. I like almost every child and parent genre... I like free roam (Grand Theft Auto), I like choice-based narratives and storylines (Mass Effect, Fable), etc.

Although thinking about, I guess, aside from RuneScape, I've never really liked MMORPGs. WoW, Perfect World, etc, just dumped me in a map and said: "Here, walk around and kill stuff". Maybe it's because RuneScape had a halfway decent quest structure, unlike the quests errands of the aforementioned games. And not only the quests, the skilling in WoW and Perfect World revolved entirely around roaming and happening to stumble across resources. I guess even RuneScape's skilling was structured.

I've got a few mates in the same boat as me... they didn't like it simply because they never felt like it started. In Games Development we'd call it a "toy" (a game with no win objective).

I've done it before. I bought Mario and Sonic at the Winter Olympics, brand new, never played it.

but why? Are you going to sell it later when it becomes a collector's item? Because if you are, then that is silly and kind-of defeats the purpose of having a game.

I suppose it was a case of buying and wanting to play it, never getting around to opening the box and then when it came to trading some stuff in to get a new game or console, they were chosen to up the credit.

well whatevs...when I get a game, I play it to its fullest. I have never played a game when I bought once because I lost it...but that is a different story.

There's a few games I've bought that I've never played, in the past.

I've got Dragon Age: Origins. It was in its plastic for months, and I've only turned it on for about 5 minutes in all. I think it was free with my console or something.

Haze, Dead Rising and Killzone 3 I bought but hardly played.

I think my problem is when multiple games come out that I want, I get both and instantly play one. And by the time I get around to the next game, I've lost interest in the reason I bought it.

There were a few other games I've bought--that I can't remember now--that I actually traded in whilst still in the packaging.

I like D Age Origins. I remember getting it… fun times… I think I played through it twice. I think I got bored with Awakenings with Mother Mallum or something; she was a little too hard and never bothered to finish. But since I imported my character from D age awakening into D Age II, I don't know if I can pick up where I left off… >.>

EDIT: but I believe I may be receiving Skyrim on Christmas…damn…I have to wait a month. -.-

Let's see... games I've bought but not played...

Wii - Mario and Sonic at the Olympics, Mario and Sonic at the Winter Olympics, Wii Play (I only bought it, because it came with a Wii remote).

PS3 - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt. 1. I bought this in preparation for the console, but never opened it. Oh well.

DS - Pokemon White. I bought this, downloaded Victini and left it. I was going to sell it to someone but they kept putting it off and ultimately blocked me.

I am not sure that is possible on a whole number of levels to compare RuneScape to Skyrim or vice versa. Obviously, there is the storyline difference and the capacity for expansion (RuneScape is free to expand dependant on server space, Skyrim is confined to a disc and can have only so much information).

well apparently people want to spend their money continuously rather than at once. Maybe they're substitutes for those people? Tongue

Jagex must have done a nice job in attracting hardcore RPG-ers.

I've got the game and the guide. But I won't play it until the person I lent the guide to is happy to return it. I don't want to make mistakes is all.

...just play it before it is too late. You won't make any mistakes. Have some fun and relax and if you're that nervous, save every 30-second interval on novice difficulty. Tongue

I was going to do a review on it for a furry magazine, but I might just give a review on Skylanders instead.

I got my guide back, so I'll be playing Skyrim soon enough.

Oh and here's my review of Skylanders.

Now, there was a funny thing I discovered about Skyrim yesterday. I knew that players could get married, but I wasn't aware that the character could be in a same sex marriage.

I find it quite strange that a game, set in times of hardship where men preyed on eachother and dragons roamed, same sex marriages in the name of religion could be perfomed, whilst in the real world, the UK doesn't allow same sex marriages in the church, despite it being a far more diverse civlization.
