I really need to buy this game. I enjoyed Oblivion a lot but it could have been better. Hopefully some of the things that made Oblivion feel a little bit strange (can't sell stolen items except for that one guy) are fixed.
I am just a Madao...and I'm proud of it!

Nope. Still can't sell stolen items.
Has anyone come across the Forbidden Legend quest? I got it from reading a book @ Dragonsreach. I love that so much of that game's content is tucked away into far recesses and corners like that! WHAT AN AMAZING GAME. yay.

Target is offering a $20 gift card now if you purchase Skyrim. It's a better deal than the $10 deal Amazon was offering last week.
IT'S A FREAKIN AWESOME GAME!

I've hit my first wall of disappointment in the overbearingly amazing world of Skyrim: UNKILLABLE NPCs !!!
Certain NPCs cannot be killed, they will instead kneel when their health is depleted, regenerate health after a few seconds and then stand back up. Its hard to complain about such an amazing game with such an extensive amount of content, but its a little annoying when old Elder Scrolls games allowed you kill any NPC, and even last year's Fallout: New Vegas featured an "any NPC is fair game" policy. Morrowind/New Vegas simply TOLD you flat out if a particular NPC's death had created an incompletable quest, giving you an option to load a previous save.
I usually don't sweat the small stuff in game's, but the inability to kill certain NPCs kind of runs against the grain of the game's goal of total immersion. It's like, you can go anywhere and do anything!!! COOOOL !!! Can I kill this guy? Um, no actually you can do pretty much anything but kill that one guy. Ok, so I can kill this guy? Umm... No not that guy either.

@lockelockeI haven't gotten Skyrim yet, but i actually am glad that there are certain NPCs that can't be killed. There were at least 2 or 3 minor sidequests in Oblivion that i could never complete because mad NPC killing sprees left key people dead.

I think it only affects the main quest NPC's. Someone was telling me how a random dragon carcass dropped out of the sky in the middle of a quest, killing a large group of NPC's and rendered the quest un-finishable.

I absolutely love this game. It has been years since a game amazed me so much that I played for 7 hours without noticing it but that happened when I got Skyrim The only thing I hate is that I want to be three seperate characters: a pure mage, an armored warrior with a shield and a stealth archer but you can't really play through such a giant game three times
Probably getting a Vita with LBP soon...

I wish I could, but I just can't seem to get into any of these American-style RPGs.

ill be picking this up today. Ive seen many great things about this game. Did any of you see the video of Angry Joe playing Skyrim? he was so excited when he played Skyrim. My problem with Skyrim is that it can get addictive. I was very surprised that 7 million units were shipped and that was certainly great news to the developers. I also see that reports came in that people who own Skyrim on the PS3 experienced lagging problems.

My equipment just got a major upgrade. I finally got to level 100 in smithing and was able to forge a complete set of Dragon Scale armor. The defense was so good I elected to remove my Dark Brotherhood / Thieves Guild armor combination. I also scored a Daedric Bow from one of the dungeons. It was just randomly laying on a pedestal. It was strange finding it there because all of the cave's inhabitants were mostly using iron gear. I'm hoping I can start to get a good grasp on imbueing equpment. Filling Soul Stones is always an afterthought so I'm concerned if I'll be able to keep a steady enough supply to imbue and recharge.
I've also accumulated about 10 shouts. My favorite is the fire shout. I really wanted to like the thunderstorm but the recharge time is ridiculous.
What is everyone's favorite shout and highest skill so far? When I get home, I'd like to post a full list of my skills to see the comparisons. I think it'll be fairly easy to deduce what kind of character everyone likes playing by their skill levels.
Edit:Here's a list of the skills if anyone wants to copy/paste to list theirs. Will save some typing.MAGICAlteration:Conjuration:Destruction:Enchanting:Illusion:Restoration:

buuuuuuuuuuump. I am assuming everyone is too busy playing this game for hours on end to talk about it. o.O
I am going to start it up tonight and can't wait. It will be my first Elder Scrolls game and looks amazing. Since I will be most likely devoting a huge chunk of my life to this game it would be nice to discuss it (especially when I am bored at work). So hopefully this thread will become active again.

So much so, in fact, that I completely forgot to update my post with my stats. Maybe I'll remember tonight.
I told someone just the other day that I was around 50ish hours into the game. I actually checked my game save last night and I'm not sure what crack I was smoking when I said that. I'm a full 111 hours into it! O.O

Most disappointing game of the year for me. I still gave it 4/5 because it's still, clearly, a great game, but I expected GOTY, and Elder Scrolls games have been getting progressively worse since Morrowind.

I read your review and I don't see how it could possibly be worse than Oblivion in your eyes...

For as long as I played Skyrim, I have to say its better than Zelda in terms of originality. I found it to be a brand new experience that I have to get my hands on as soon as possible.
Other than Gameinformer, I can't see any other website dedicated to multiplatforms giving Zelda GotY.

Simple. It's more vanilla. I'm not a fan of giving vanilla games 10/10

I never played Morrowind (despite it sitting right there on my shelf of games), but I prefer Skyrim to Oblivion. I'll actually finish Skyrim and enjoy every minute of getting to the end. With Oblivion, not so much.

I'll be giving this a shot next week, so will be able to discuss it then.

You even said it was a better game than Oblivion in the comments, though. Seriously, what the hell?
