Too much hype for more of the same

Summary: I'm surprised at how bad this game is. I have been playing TES since Morrowind and I own every game in the series, but I really expected more. Skyrim is just a reskinned Oblivion. The textures look god-awful, even in 1900x1200.
Summary: Unfortunately for me I have damaged my game to the point where I can not even play anymore. If you aren't careful with how you install the mods you will screw your game up. There is a guy on YouTube called gopher, and he shows step by step how to install mods.
Summary: Great game, but the system requirements are pretty high. The ones listed don't really cut it. It's slow, and difficult to play. So just make sure your computer is more than capable of running it before purchasing.
Summary: I was looking for a good RPG but I have been leery of a lot of the games coming out that are getting such good reviews and finding out that they are at best average. So while I have been seeing Skyrim get really good press for some time, I decided to wait until the price dropped to around $20 before...
Cons: Steam.. Spyware and an 8 yes, Eight hour download ruin it for me.. Sure their is a claim on the container stating one must agree and accept Steams terms in order to download and play. But I ordered the game online, here, I didn't read the fine print on the packaging. Why even sell the hard copy v...
Summary: when you buy a game you expect to have control over it when you play. with steam you never do.
Pros: game is great - as usual for bethesda
Cons: steam. everything is ok as long as you are dealing with a computer on their end. however, if something glitches - in my case my email got reverted to an obsolete address and i couldn't log in anymore - you are forced to deal with the human interface. they must be so overworked with the massive sa...
Summary: Game idea is great but game was released unfinished (likely due to corporate pressure) and untested. Numerous bugs that would've been IMMEDIATELY noticed had anyone at Bethesda tested it on a pc with a mouse at all.
Summary: I am vacillating between several feelings right now. Rage at spending money on a game that was clearly not ready for release on a PC platform. Despair at my inability to learn that game manufacturers WILL market a product that does not perform as advertised.
Summary: Yes i agree, it includes the dlc, which is great, some people will disagree,
but $70 for a game thats almost 2 years old… it still cost too much… it'd
be much better if it was around $50, then maybe id reconsider re-buying it.
