They don't owe you ANYTHING. If you play Skyrim, you better pay for it, otherwise your scum. Even the average 17 year old should be mature enough to understand this.

This goes for all games and media.

Here's some I could find quickly that makes me worry -

One

Two

Three

Just seems like the same things that destroyed Dragon Age 2, again, hopefully I'm wrong.

Good games deserve your money.

For those worries about the graphics, modding community for FO + ES is sick.

Wait... what?

Why didn't you just make copies of the disk(or virtually mount the disk) and use the same CD key instead of buying 5 copies? It's not pirating if you own it.

I'm confused...

I must say it doesn't sound bad, I think the game will still have enough complexity and variety to give us a good TES game. Also I do agree with him that some ppl may have "character/skills" remorse when they decide they prefer a different style of combat/skills. Maybe the new structure will have it's advantages Still going to be huge and have massive replay value.

Also the gameplay looks smooth and enjoyable, also the story can't possibly disappoint

Looking forward to this game so much.

How did you get Oblivion to run on your friends?

What is this I don't know.

Skyrim is one of the few games on the PC I would say is actually worth the $10 console manufacturer tax. If it's anything like Morrowind or Oblivion I will be getting well over 300 hours total out of it.

I also have a feeling mod support will be a lot better in Skyrim than it was in Morrowind or Oblivion. We might see some incredible mods come out of Skyrim.

The first one is kinda.. I don't know. Might be bad if true, but not necessarily. However, the last two are nothing bad IMO. The graphics thing, devs already said PC version is much better looking on multiple circumstances, that is just marketing speech or something, and I really wouldn't mind even oblivion level graphics, just make the game good.

The third one. Is wrong. If you had watched the 40min skyrim quakecon video, you had realized that. They have removed classes, but that is the only thing they have done. Otherwise the skill system is more complex, and the way you control stuff while in combat is more complex as well. I dont' see much more in that article but the statement that they're gonna remove classes for the guys playing who are playing for the first time and might end up regretting their choice. That's it.

And for reference, I have bought Oblivion 3 times (Xbox, retail disc before steam had it, steam) Morrowind 3 times (same 3 as Oblivion) and Skyrim will be a one timer as I will not be going from console to PC EVER AGAIN.
Fallout 3 doesnt need Steam, New Vegas does
