My memories and thoughts of oblivion was wow what a great game.I then researched and saw skyrim was on its way oh how exciting...not.Don't feel it was worth the wait or does it get better with time.Microsoft is dubbing skyrim as the game of 2011 what do you think?How does it compare to oblivion?
Skyrim improves on Oblivion in dozens of ways. It also drops a few things that were interesting or useful. Overall, I think it is much better than Oblivion, and closer in spirit to Morrowind. I would call it my game of the year for 2011, but I don't play enough games to have a really informed position. I certainly think it's a great game.
What disappointed you about Skyrim? I enjoyed both games, because each one is amazing in its own way.
Also, I wrote an article about a comparison between the two games here. Check it out, if you are interested.
Definitely an improvement on Oblivion. Graphics and sound far better - plot probably a little better - character system more like Fallout 3 - some will like some will hate. Much has improved - still a lot more that could be improved.
I will certainly check it out further,the visual effects are really beautiful.I just felt I had a lot more freedom to do what I wanted on oblivion...how would you rate skyrim in that aspect or is the gameline super fixed..
Very Open - and a huge world! I've run through the main quest once - and now am replaying. You don't have to do any of the quests if you don't want to - you can roam around and do what you want! There are plenty of side quests to follow or you can simply find dungeons and fights for yourself!
There are 'random' quests - and the world is huge - it just seems more 'real' than Oblivion to me...
It's just as open as Oblivion. Quest-wise, they work the same way. You can follow or ignore the main quest in both.
A few things are different, but for the most part they've just taken everything and upgraded it. The environments, in particular, are much better. If you like Oblivion, you will almost certainly like Skyrim.
They're having some issues with the PS3 version in the current update, but that will likely be fixed within the week. Just a head's up.
I think batman and uncharted 3 are much more likely for goty.
Uc2 beat arkham asylum a few years ago so I think they will give goty to batman this year.
I like how 3rd person is actually good in skyrim.
What do you guys think nout mw3,saints row,halo and gears 3.I haven't reviewed or tried them are they worth the fuss?this was and is a great year for microsoft!what do you think will be the next big game
Gears of War 3 was definitely better than Gears 2 and made some vast improvements, though its multiplayer didn't have a lot of staying power for me once Modern Warfare 3 and other games were released after. Modern Warfare 3 is good, but very flawed like all Call of Duty games. And Saints Row 3 is like the other two games, but 100x funner for me personally. I'm enjoying the missions, much better graphics, and everything else about it.
Batman beat uncharted a few years ago..idiot

Skyrim is just too glitchy to me. I have about 6 quests that I can't complete right now because the character won't talk to me, the character won't show up, the person keeps repeating the same thing etc. It's pretty frustrating.
