    I thought you were only into games on the Wii? TES is a RPG series set in huge open environments. each game is set in a new province of this world with different races and climates. there's a main quest but it's completely up to you if you want to follow it. there are bucketloads of side quests you can do for various factions

    Oblivion from some years ago is probably their biggest success in the series so far (I prefer Morrowind though, it is only my FAVOURITE GAME EVER)

    why am I going on about this? youtube/wiki it :evil:

    oh I like RPG in concept but I just don't have the concentration span to invest in it.

    The most I could ever manage was SIM CITY (which I know isn't quite RPG but you get where I'm coming from) and even THEN I had to cheat because I couldn't be arsed waiting 20 years to save enough money to buy the skyscrapers I wanted :evil:

    maybe this isn't for you then. there's level requirements in order to rise in the ranks etc so it's rather time consuming. TOO BAD, it's beautiful

    Then you would LOVE Final Fantasy XIII. Just press one button to advance 20 hours, press three buttons for the next 15.

    I can't be arsed to find the article but Skyrim will have dragons. when you slay a dragon you'll learn a portion of their language which is then used to create spells

    I'm right up there with you mats, up front and center ( like Jennifer Lopez wanted Jane Fonda to be for her grandchildren in the enthralling conclusion to MONSTER IN LAW), fast travel killed the experience a little, but tbh, it wasn't like there was much to see.

    In saying that, whenever I pop Oblivion in, I'm STILL finding (useless) new areas on the map!

    also:

    Not sure how I feel about the graphics... Red Dead Redemption looks better.

    it looks more than good enough to me!

    you're right, the landscape of Cyradiil was extremely dull compared to that of Vvardenfell's. I just missed the silt striders :(

    At least the NPC's look one zillion times better than the simians that populated Cyradiil.

    Everyone is loving the ruin! People like the sense of depth with it. I BELIEVE these are 360 shots. Good thing about console release with this is that the PC version won't RAPE your system like the last one did.

    I've seen it four times already :D :manson:

    is that an ACTUAL fight with a dragon? it looks very dynamic

    have you seen this MAMA? I wonder who it is in the middle defeating the dragon. they look like Altmer

    Middle left or middle right? Becuase that hobo in the middle is Alduin!

    I hope it's not an Altmer, they piss me off and have downs of the eyes. Anyone that would scoff at the use of a plastic plate WITH dividers is no friend of mine.

    And I assume they would scoff at such a fine invention.

    Meanwhile, that trailer footage is from the Xbox 360 version. PC will be glorious.

    Wait.

    Altmer were the "high elves" in oblivion, right? If not, redirect my hate there.

    I thought Alduin was the dragon (the World Eater) :confused:

    Altmer is only the best race ever :o I so hope it'll be TES VI: Sumerset Isle after Skyrim

    It's confusing when I'm wrong.

    Oh okay, it makes sense now.

    Okay.

    RIGHT. I get it now.

    You know I hope we get awesome NPC's like CITY-SWIMMER :(
