It is not only the final nail in the coffin for proper TES games, it's the smoking gun that shot it dead.

Not to mention it being emblematic of virtually everything that's wrong in the current games market.

You'd better believe I hate it.


Are you saying it's streamlined?

Let's all be honest here, all TES games are always more streamlined than the last.

Even are beloved Oblivion is defintatly a bit easier to understand than MW.

Also I don't think we as humans, understand how powerful the word hate is.

Hate is something that drives a man to take a human life, this is video games....and they r srs buzsiness


Skyrim is a monument to style over substance: a gutted magic system to allow for visual effects. Differences in race now little more than aesthetics. Attributes removed in favour of a perk system that's literally written in the stars, armour parts merged in favour of appearance. And don't getme started on the whole radiant quest mechanic.

And then there's the pandering to the epic junkies: Battling dragons all over the place. The entirety of the shout mechanic. Two weapon fighting implemented in the most idiotic way possible. And a main quest that effectively pits you against the destroyer of the universe.

And then there's the whole "too spreadsheety" debacle.

I could keep on going, but these in my mind are the biggies, and without even a mention of streamlining.

1.No, the magic system isn't gutted.

2.There were never really that different in Oblivion besides some useful racials.

3.I like the perk system alot actually.

4.Can't disagree with that though.

5.It's pretty alright, it was a bit over hyped.

6."Pandering" yeah right, the dragon fights are fun albeit they could of been a bit less frequent. The shout mechanic is fun though, and it fits in with the story. The dual wielding is done as well as they could of done it.
Yes...and what was the OB MQ again...oh right...it pitted you against the destroyer of the universe. Yeah.

7.What? Too spreadsheety? No it's not.

EDIT:You don't want to dwell on it any longer? It's a video game not some controversial topic.

Hayley Williams new hair, now that's controversial.

1.No, the magic system isn't gutted.


An entire school of magic: removed. Numerous spell effects: removed. The ability to create your own spells and thereby customise your character's use of magic: removed.

2.There were never really that different in Oblivion besides some useful racials.


Compare an Oblivion Orc to an Oblivion Altmer, before picking a birthsign:

The Orc is half again as srtong as the Altmer, with a carrying capacity to match, and will be more damaging with melee weapons as a result. He is partially resistant to magicka, he has greater health, but his lower personality means lower disposition with those he meets. and then there's his once a day ability.

Meanwhile the Altmer is naturally resistant to disease, carries an inherent weakness to all three elments, and has significantly more mgicka than the Orc.

That's without taking into account skill bonuses. Can you honestly say Skyrim matches that?

If the perk system were something more like Fallout's it might have had some merit, as it stands it is a particularly poor substitute for attributes, and has a large number of perks that are simply percentage increases.

It was a lazy attempt to add greater staying power to the game, not to mention being criminally overused.

Yes, pandering. Dragons are all too often brought in as one of the biggest, most dangerous enemies fantasy has to offer. How many can you fight in Skyrim?

The shouts are magic for those who don't want to play mages, and the reason the magic system was gutted.

Dual wielding simply shouldn't be in a game of this type. In something like Morrowind, where character skill determines ability to hit, perhaps. Trying to fight with a weapon in each hand is at best going to result in a great many misses, and would get a novice attempting it killed in seconds.

And Oblivion has you

7.What? Too spreadsheety? No it's not.


"Too spreadsheety" was said by Todd Howard, I believe in reference to attributes and/or spellmaking (can't remember precisely, can't be bothered to dig out the quote). Regardless, it was used as a reason for the removal of features. Frankly it's ridiculous.

And now I'm really done. I have stated my opinion, and explained it. I see no reason to continue arguing back and forth about it.
Vital
Just gonna say I'm actually on the fence as far as skyrim is concerned. It is undoubtably that the
game is 'simplified' for a wider-audience and this annoys me. However it's still a good world and I can easily RP around most things. On the whole I still greatly enjoyed the game.

One thing I will say is that more streamlining occurred between daggerfall morrowind and oblivion than between oblivion and skyrim.

Magic was undoubtedly streamlined. Purely on the decrease in spell-types. I liked bein able to dual-cast spells and the way the early destruction spells flow is cool. Dragons were a bit of an overkill but TEs fans have been asking for dragons long before the attention lacking little kids arrived. Dual-wielding again was a popular request among long time TES fans and not being able to block actually makes it balanced. If you could block there'd be no point in having a shield.

The leveling system was overly-simple. But the previous system was broken anyway. Any class system where I have to choose skills I will never use to stop my character from being destroyed is broken. Bethesda simply decided to scratch it instead of fix it. Not a good choice but no game-breaking.

Also, haven't we always been the potential destroyer of the world? Skyrim just took it more literally.

Overall Skyrim is definitely streamlined to an extent that does the series no favors in my eyes but is it hate-able even without even playing? Not really. Of course everyone is entitled to an opinion.

Nothing much.

Just reading some Buffy the Bowgirl

Not particularly tired, so I'll probably get through another couple of pages before I call it a night.

Cool.. I still haven't read much of the fan-fic here. It's definitely high in the to-do list. That and writing my own fic.

Well it's the last day of term here, so I'll have lots of time to get some things done over the next two weeks. tongue.gif

For me, no DiD=no character. If I'm just reloading when they die then they're an avatar, not a character.

@'Rocu: I do not not post-and-run.

I am a sometime practitioner of hit-and-run posting.

I think it´s more accurate with post-and-run. If you hit-and-run it means you hit someone and then run away but here you just post and run away, you never hit biggrin.gif

The same for me. When I first started playing oblivion and morrowind my characters were 'dead is reload' I got one character to an A-bomb from that tongue.gif Around the time I was creating my next character I was exposed to the idea of DiD and since then have never been able to play any other way . I've had a few characters that I've been very reluctant to stop and of course it's never easy just dropping a character. However DiD can be really immersive and add another layer to the game.

I can't bare to think of how I would feel if my current skyrim character Ravos died. At level 42 and almost having finished I'm really connected to him, in fact he's maybe my favorite TES character ever. But at level 42 he's practically invincible (while still being fun to play) so it doesn't really matter...
mirocu
I guess you could say I also do DiD with Lothran but since he´s also practically invulnerable it doesn´t matter either mellow.gif

I know what you mean. It makes the whole game feel different. Every fight is literally a matter of life and death for a character. Going back to it simply meaning a reload would be impossible.
mirocu
I do try my best never to die in any game whether it´s Oblivion, Fallout 3 or whatever. But if I should fail then I do reload. Though I have to admit, it never feels good doing it.. kvleft.gif
