I'm afraid this isn't lending Skyrim a distinctive feel. When you looked at a screen from Oblivion you could immediately tell that it was taken from within the oblivion world. The screens above do not evoke that same feeling.
I understand that they are still preliminary and a number of things are being ironed out but for the first time i feel a bit disappointed. Perhaps my misgivings are unfounded, but if someone has a line of thinking alternate to mine, i would like to hear it.
On a side note I'm happy to see some pics where there is no snow. If it all were snow I was gonna be depressed.
So while I beg to differ from you, what about these pics seems lacking to you?
