I have seen some really awesome screen shots of the game which do impress me, and after hearing about how much more awesome the dark brotherhood is in skyrim then in oblivion I can't wait to see how it plays out. but like I said it looks boring and even the videos of the dragon fights look like they suck, I see people just stand there and cast a spell then another and another and then its dead? Is this really all the game is? I played morrowind and oblivion and both fallout 3 and new vegas and I loved them, but based on some of the videos I've seen skyrim just does not look as great.
I'm thinking I might just get it through gamefly on xbox 360 and call it a day, no need to waste 50 bucks on a pc title which I may not enjoy.
Please OCN tell me that I am wrong about this game looking boring or post some videos that make this game awesome so I make the right choice and buy it!

well its better than oblivion, but i still like morrowind more. fallout 3 was just bad, new vegas was alright but and 1 and 2 were much better rpgs imo.

as far as 2011 titles go, witcher 2/deus ex 3 are my favourites, and skyrim, whilst fun, wont be overtaking them.

All my other games work, maybe its corrupted?

Mine was doing same thing. Do this:

By Readykill: For those having issues launching today it is caused by the patch that steam applied today (it's not a Bethesda patch). It is basically an extra thigh DRM that will not allow you to play an edited TESV.exe, which in turn will not allow you to enable more than 2gb ram with LAA.

However, as a work around for anyone who installed prior to today, on windows 7 navigate to your TESV.exe right click on it, click "Restore Previous Versions" copy the old version that comes up and save it somewhere safe in case it gets written over again in the future, then copy and paste it back into your Skyrim folder and click over-write. Then run LAA again. I also clicked my TESV to be Read-Only so it shouldn't get over-written in the future. Hopefully Bethesda will give us another means to increase memory in a future patch, in the mean time it looks like this hack is the only way to play with the increased textures!!

If you cannnot restore the TESV back to previous version the download this Original unpatched TESV.exe originally posted by krown Just like above qouted msg states, save this to a save place and copy it into your Skyrim directory directly over the TESV.exe file that is in there. Repatch it with LAA for the 4G patch and it should work. I turned steam into offline mode so it wouldnt update again on its own. Hope this helps.

So you played all those and loved them and are still on the fence? I'll admit that the dragons can be underwhelming (only faught 1 story, 2 randoms, and let 1 fly off), but worse case scenario if you don't crank the difficulty up, I'm sure there'll be a mod that's just make the game have "Dragon" difficulty, basically there's dragons then everything else. I will say that I am kinda upset that I killed the first dragon so easily yet some random thug was harder early on. Hope to see a hardcore like F:NV added in. I see no point in having food and just like in Fallout, I never really like seeing headshot's being so week. Seeing a guy with 3 arrows in 1 eye and still chugging can be disappointing.

Just got into the Brotherhood. Can't believe that I'm part of the Companions, Thieves Guild, and Brotherhood yet I haven't done that many quest for them at all. Been way too busy just taking everything in and it's awesome knowing I've only barely scratched the surface.

I really liked Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
The Black Hand message you get after killing the orphanage lady. Best part was it wasn't like Oblivion where you kill someone and a guy's like "Hey, join us!" I knocked her off on Saturday and just recently tonight I got a visit from the Brotherhood after putting a few more hours after that. I'm already starting to get way too many quest in my journal.

What are some good side quests? I have finished all of the guilds and the main story and the game is starting to get boring now. I quite liked saving the tree in whiterun, and the abandoned house in markath, but most of the other ones I have tried are boring...

Hmm, maybe I should buy morrowind off steam...

edit: just noticed, there is a bards college

totally agree with you about the headshot issue thats always pissed me off. I think I'm more or less having a hard time deciding on the console. Are the controls really broken on the pc? from what I've read most of you guys are using 360 controllers. Maybe I'll just wait a couple more weeks until birthday and buy it as a gift for myself, that way I can justify spending 60 bucks on a game which, I never do anymore.

Yes, use a controller. Keyboard controls suck! It feels awesome with a 360 controller

edit: get it on pc so you can mod it...

Anyone have issues with magicka regeneration while in a battle?

I'm playing as a mage and really need the regeneration but it seems while in battle mode all my enchantments make no difference and it takes too long for magicka to regenerate.
