So i have a 40 dollar credit to use on amazon....

which do i get

Modern warfare 3 or Skyrim


Im worried about the balance issues in mw3 simply because of stacking killstreaks, killstreaks that dont reset when you die, and of course.... juggernaut.


Skyrim im worried because i have never played any of these games... i have never really given a RPG game a good chance.... last RPG game I played was years ago on xbox (knights of the old republic). Will a game like this be boring?

Just look at the MW3 trailers and then the Skyrim 3part demo on IGN's youtube channel.

Then you will know that there isnt a need for this thread.

I liked call of duty 4, hated mw2, liked black ops.... so im worried since mw3 is going to be VERY similar to mw2. As of right now I cant even play black ops after being spoiled with bf3 beta for the past 2 weeks.....

so that is why im afraid to get MW3.... I think the only reason i played alot of cod games was I used to be an Xbox gamer and had a bunch of friends... but sold my xbox and came over to PC.... so i dont feel so compelled to buy a COD game because "all my friends" are.

there are various RPG styles out there right now.

some of them are party based with more of a "tactical" control system like kotor, mass effect and dragon age, others are more hack'n'slash like witcher, dungeon siege, gothic..

then they divide by how important character development is, for example in witcher, gothic or kotor the skills, equipment and stats in general are treated rather superficially - you cant really mess up too bad and as long as you follow common sense you can pretty much steamroll through anything and then there are games like diablo or ao where building a viable character is a science in its own right.

there are other divisions in RPG games but these 2 i think are the most important, as for skyrim which is from TES series its gonna be a hack'n'slashy type game with medium depth character development, bethesda games used to have more character depth but since oblivion they seem to be leaning out of it which makes me sad coz i love a good hack'n'slash with a bit of science to it (well duh since diablo 2 is my all time favorite game)

If its not your type of game the Elder scrolls are a mammoth undertaking- i have played oblivion and morrowwind to death. They are not to be taken lightly and require many many hours. Skyrim is apparrently the largest yet.

According to xfire i have 122 hours on oblivion and i am nowhere near completion. hope this gives you an idea what to expect.
