A passionate exploration of Skyrim’s world, how it draws players in and keeps them hooked.
I've got to say without mods I wouldn't still be playing myself. I've got one which makes you a random character which can live their life as someone other than the Dovahkiin which really adds so much more depth to the game. I love how every time I feel that it's getting static I can add in new elements. I fancy battle? Warzones mods for battles everywhere. Stealth? Sneak and warangel mods for Thief like elements. It's a beautiful game too with the right mods. The ENB series just allow you to get you so immersed. Cannot wait for my oculus rift. That's really going to add to it.
I play it vanilla and I started playing again a week ago.
What mod are you talking about (play as other characters)? Does it just make you look like that character, or is there more to it?
http://steamcommunity.com/s... It's this and a few other little ones to tweak the world for you. I think it's "Not the chosen one" but can't seem to find it. I'll have a look and PM you the details if I can find it! :)
PC MODS! Having the PC version and able to install all the great mods just makes that $40 purchase price seem like NOTHING! Preparing to install the Skyrim Game of Thrones Mod.
I'll likely dive back in with a ton of Steam workshop mods here soon, it'll be like a completely different game!
That's what I love about Skyrim. A few little tweaks and it's almost like another world. There's a few Game of Thrones mods nearing completion too. Can't wait!
Sweet jesus, did you say game of thrones mod? I AM THERE
That's one of the things I DON'T like: Bethesda's games seem to rely on people coming up with those little tweaks for their longevity. Otherwise, the content is actually rather lacking, and repetitive. To me, it takes away from the image of the game, when it relies so heavily on the aftermarket to reach its potential. Yet, for some reason, Skyrim and their other games are praised out of the box. I don't get it.
Look at all these disagrees by jealous console fanboys. awww, so sad. lmao
Says Jack Tretton. haha. You should support the console :D
Why I stopped playing Skyrim after 250+ hours. Timed DLC which turned into broken DLC that took way to long to release. So going forward I will no longer pre-order their games and just wait the extra year and pick-up the GOTY edition that will have everything on the disc the way it's supposed to be.
Sounds like my gearox approach now.
Coz you are not playing it on console..try playing it on ps3 after one hour you stop FOREVER! Lolz
No you don't.
Nah I played it on PS3 and rarely had any problems. I saw one backwards flying dragon that was so high in the sky I could barely tell what it was, I had random townspeople appear in my house when I went inside if they were anywhere near when I entered, and I was unable to finish the Companions quest because a creature wouldn't spawn so I couldn't cure myself of lycanthropy. That's really about it. Not exactly game breaking. It's so sad that Bethesda relies on their fans to fix their games and make them better with mods, then gets such praise for being a great developer.
It runs fine on the ps3 after all the patches.
I got the game on PS3 at release and had few issues (none significant), even after 200 hours of gaming - all of which was spent the first few months after release.
BTW, this is one of the only games for which I've gotten a platinum trophy - so I've encountered all the story and side-quest content. I haven't purchased the DLC, however.
I played it for 2 months upon it's release beat it and didn't play again even though I loved the game. However That's going to change when the Legendary edition is released.
I put in 120 hours before the first patch on ps3 and it was AWFUL. The last 100 hours was filled with lag and game freezing and having to turn off the console every 20-30 minutes just to continue pushing forward, there were quests that couldn't be done, items forever stuck in inventory and the list goes on and on. After that fiasco I couldn't care less about Skyrim and feel anyone who bought the ps3 version should have been given their money back for buying a BROKEN game. Sure it's fixed now but it took months to do and no one should buy a game day one and have to spend months waiting for the game to work properly.
My experience with the PS3 version wasn't like that at all. For me, Skyrim on PS3 was relatively bug free compared to Dead Island, which was the buggiest game I've ever played in my life. Bugs are weird.
Yeah that was my experience with Fallout 3. I never ran into the bugs that other people had to suffer through.
How could you put 120 hours in a game you weren't enjoying?
You're getting the wrong idea, I enjoyed the gameplay and the world, the first 30-40 hours were fun. But then the quests started glitching up. Shortly after that the lag started. At first it wasn't too bad but the further into the game I played the worse it got. Then the lag turned to freezing up altogether, mostly in towns with alot of activity. I wanted to play the game but the issues got so bad that playing was not just frustrating and anger inducing instead of fun but was also just becoming impossible.
i played skyrim for the first time last week and i am totally hooked. you wanna know why? MODS
I completed Oblivion but got bored of Skyrim after a few weeks.
I use play Skyrim like you, but then I took an arrow in the knee!
I'm sorry :(
I'm still playing Warhawk years later from its release...
I'm still playing Mario kart on snes
