Think it's as epic as people say it is? Think again.
Women say something similar about me. On topic. I can't agree as Skyrim has about 6 distinct climaxes. In another game The College of Winterhold would have been a main story. It has a great climax and was my favourite part of the game. My main issue with Skyrim was with dumb upstarts not recognising me. "What do I do, well i'm the dragonborn, the archmage, head of the companions, thieves guild and the dark brotherhood, and i'm also a stormcloak civil war veteran, and thane in all nine holds. Do you really want to fight me?"
Yeah I hated that, I also hated how the race you choose had no effect on how people reacted to you. I.e. Ulfric hates high elves, but if you are a high elf, he respects you greatly? It doesn't make very much sense.
They do on occasion. I'm an argonian and get a lot of comments in windhelm. It varies quest to quest and I think that some storylines just had to pave over the issue of race or else they'd have to be locked off. In reality an argonian shouldn't really become thane of a city defined by prejudice but at the same time it's that or just lock the quest off to me. I'd rather just accept some things need sway.
Hmm I see what you mean, but honestly I'd kinda prefer it if quests locked off due to race. It'd give more incentive to make new characters. Also, I just think it'd be cool if race had a heavy effect in the game since a lot of the game is about prejudice in the first place. Especially the Civil War questline.
Its so true, the ending to Skyrim and all the main quests are just meh... Bethesda needs to work on their story telling and their overall ability to make a conclusion to a quest. "What do I do, well i'm the dragonborn, the archmage, head of the companions, thieves guild and the dark brotherhood, and i'm also a stormcloak civil war veteran, and thane in all nine holds. Do you really want to fight me?" So true, but truth is.... I and Im guessing everyone else in Skyrim either forgot, or does not care... They are more obsessed with me enchanting their swords...
Dragon Slayer was one of the most epic quests/ things I've done in a long time playing a video game. I understand this story is not news at all. Just all one person's opinion. But I guess Skyrim being the GOTY says more agree with the games true epic ness. Which no one can take away.
All in all the last quest was good... The battle itself? Not so much... I just was expecting something after the battle. It was a feeling of... Okay, there must be a second stage to this fight, right? I would have liked some ending credits to roll as well. Was looking forward to hearing the theme song play out during the end. :\
I haven't finished Skyrim's main quest yet, but this pretty much sums up most of the storytelling in the game. What annoys me most, though, is the ridiculous number of glitches, and the occasional side-quest bug that results in a frozen objective and the agony of not being able to gain an item/XP due to poorly-written game code. Despite this, while not perfect, the game is still a helluva lot of fun to play, and is definitely worth your time. As for the bugfixes, the PC gamers have a better chance of seeing them fixed sooner (I hear you guys can cheat and fix 'em with console commands anyways ;-D), because we all know how long console updates take to roll out... -__-
