Terrible Mage Guild Terrible Thieves Guild Fuck the Bards Meh Dark Brotherhood Conflict nobody cares about Dragons that become annoying instead of challanging. Requires mods to actually look good on PC
>>283986286 Which is acually quite sad. It almost feels like Bethesda stopped caring because "the modders will fix it". I can't even imagine playing Skyrim without graphics mods, mechanic overhauls, better animations and sexlab
>>283986037 >No recognition for deeds Yeah because that didn't get old in oblivion fast at all... >be leaving a house at night after killing contract >hood on, no way to tell who I am >random imperial guard walks by >practically yelling "OH MY YOUR THE CAMPION OF CYRODIIL, IT IS AN HONER TO MEET YOU!" >immersionbroken.jpg
>>283985669 the cities are more like tiny towns. Would rather have half the cities with twice the NPCs
neutered Dark Brotherhood, I don't give a shit if the lore explains it. That was one of the best parts of Oblivion
the world just kinda feels like a wasteland. I know it's sort of supposed to be, but it doesn't make for a fun time
also this is a personal of mine and I felt it's a retarded design choice:
>rent room >go in, take an apple from the table >everything fine, leave the next day >ambushed by mercenaries for stealing the apple >go into Jorrvaskr, maybe my bros will help me out >they just stand and watch >I barely beat the thugs
really motherfucker? For an apple in a room that I PAID FOR?
>>283986590 >>fixes the main quest What's your problem with it? >>makes your choices matter They already do matter. But if you want more you can install stuff like Requiem for example. Or mods which prevent guild swapping without high speech etc >>makes combat enjoyable Requiem + Skytweak can be pretty damn enjoyable with the right settings. >>makes animations better You can use mods like Mystic Knight to have much better idle animations. But yea the hit animations are still kinda meh. You dont have many hits anyway though so who cares.
Mediocre, unresponsive combat. Mediocre, bland magic system. Guilds are too short and too easy to burn through. I shouldn't be able to become archmage without knowing how to cast Expert Level spells, and I shouldn't be able to become Harbinger without having any martial prowess. The cities are far too small; I'm pretty sure Balmora is larger than Solitude. The roleplaying elements are pretty sparse, and there are very few options for religious characters. What if I want to be a penitent alcoholic working for divine favor? Alchemy still occupies this weird space where it's incredibly useful but still ludicrously common. No regional economy or trade routes. There's very little "small time" work. Even the earliest quests involve you killing hordes of undead or bandits. Dialogue and writing are mediocre for the most part. It's still more fun than Morrowind, though.
>>283987257 Yes but I couldn't stand the brown nosing and ass kissing in oblivion, but in skyrim you can actually see the effect your choices have in the world, replacing of yarls and guards after the cival war quest, bringing the elderglram tree back to life. In oblivion it felt like they had to remind you about what you've done because the world didn't reflect tour accomplishments.
>>283988043 Nigger, I have over 300 mods. Requiem is really not the only mod I use. But it does many things other mods do not do. Very essential things, like removing enemy scaling, overhauling the perk tree in an actual good way, making combat more logical with enemies who are almost immune towards arrows, heavy armor which reacts like heavy armor, etc,
>>283988770 I use all kinds of mods, but yea I also have a lot of mods which require no plug-ins like texture mods, animation mods, or just some patches. Or also merged plug-ins. I have around 30 armor/clothes/weapon mods all merged into one single plug-in.
>>283989080 It's a meme about how stealth is broken and, since archery receives bonuses from stealth and is generally intended to be used in conjunction, it, too is broken. But nothing is more broken than dual-wielding daggers with all the Stealth perks. You can literally just crouch in front of an enemy and get a stealth crit.
>>283985669 - Combat system is one of the most shallow in gaming. Even more shallow than trash like AssCreed.
- Tons of garbage skills and the few good ones are so much better than the rest that most spells in the game aren't worth using. ever.
- Repetitive and casualized dungeons
- God awful bestiary. Feels like you're fighting the same handful of enemies for 95% of the game
- hideous art direction, everything looks the same. no matter where you go.
- Horrible scaled loot
- level scaling
Skyrim has literally only one thing going for it and it's the game's scale. It is a large world and it does feel like there are a lot of things happening in that world, and that feeling alone can keep you immersed for a good 30 hours or more.
>"Norse" setting >Saxon guard helmets >"Celtic" designs on steel weapons >retarded lore >focusing on retarded lore, even though the dev team has been very different from one game to the next >basically like carrying on a football club's anthem and insisting upon it, even though everybody who originally sang it is dead and long since stopped producing fucks >Short elf, tall elf, linkin park elf >Skyrim homogenised the races so that they were all just gritty, desaturated humans with subtle differences
>>283989080 I'm the anon you replied to. With the damage multipliers and enchanting, stealth archery is incredibly powerful. Stealth in general is an easy way to get ridiculous damage at little to no risk.
>>283991804 I'm RP'ing as a bosmer ranger on expert with HUD, crosshairs, and autosave off, and I only save after sleeping. Plus I don't use health potions or restoration magic so I don't mind the advantage. Also wearing fur armor(smithed to legendary) , and I'm using a forsworn bow(with deadric arrows tho)
>Cities are like villages Yes they are small >Whole world is empty as fug Lots of mods to fill it up >No body dismemberment (poor combat) Locational damage, dismemberment mods >World of fantasy doesnt offer many crazy creatures/structures/biomes Immersive creatures, immersion mods >Generic cliche main quest Become the High King of Skyrim then >No recognition for deeds Good, shit was annoying
