Skyrim on the Xbox has been my crutch when I have time between work, university, my kids, and my wife. I love that game.
Skyrim is awesome. But for some reason it doesn't hold my attention as well as Oblivion. Maybe it's because I burned myself out on Oblivion and Skyrim is more or less Oblivion with better graphics. Though the next DLC taking us into Solstheim should bring life to the game for me (at least, I hope).
That looks like a great game, definitely one I look forward to.
Well... many games are coming out and they are always better than the past.
I suppose that's where I differ from many other people. I think some of the best games ever made were made in the 80's and 90's. That being said, I'm always thankful companies like Valve and Rockstar are there to constantly lead innovation in the industry.
Don't get me wrong i love skyrim and have spent an outrageous amount of hours on it but you need just that to make it worth playsing, purely because of the amount of story lines, quests and paths you can take.
... I still haven't finished it, I spend too much time just wandering around picking fights with bandits.
Skyrim is one of those games that should be enjoyed but cannot be rushed as ChrisHunter pointed. I haven't played it in a couple of months but I want to finish it and complete as many missions that I can and that takes a lot of time. Luckily, it's one of those types of games that will draw me back into it eventually. LoL ChrisHunter, I wander around looking for fights all the time. I only fast travel if the missions take me right across the map. I've built my Nord to be a skull-removing 2 handed war-hammer-smashing beast. This is a great game but it can be glitchy and load times can be quite long.
Yeah Stuugie i agree i quite often get stuck on rock and have to load the last save.
My character is a Wood Elf but I haddn't played the Oblivion seires before and didnt focus on one ability so although he's a bit of a beast with fire, archery, one-handed and two-handed, he's not as good as he could be with some abilities.
Think i will focus on two handed from now on though... When i get back into it that is.
@ChrisHunter, don't get me wrong, I think the online graphics are good, better than campaign at least. As for zombies, I like fighting zombies! I like the new BO2 zombie maps, especially the one with the bus and the hoards of zombies that chase you while on the bus. Good times. I haven't bought the Nuketown zombie map yet but I'll probably get that after Christmas.
Oddly enough, I think the BO2 multiplayer is better than BO1 by miles. Love the new load out system, love the new scorestreaks rather than killstreaks system, love the emphasis on team play for XP etc etc.
I'm no hardcore gamer (only Second Prestige 13 at the minute if proof were needed of that) but BO2 multiplay really ticks the boxes for me - to the point where I think I've only completed a couple of missions in the actual game part of the thing itself.
