Because video games are a waste of your young lives. Get and live - don't sit there exercising your thumbs.

Video games should be for us old bastards with nothing better to do.

Maybe I'm just jealous cause in my day Colecovision coming out with Donkey Kong was state of the art technology. Big Grin

Well, the furthest I've gotten in checking it out was the first video on their official website. I was unaware that this was another Elder Scrolls game.. Now that I know this, I'll be certainly looking at putting this on my GameFly queue. I'll only buy it if it REALLY entertains me.

I played Oblivion for a short while on my buddies computer. Never had the system required myself to run it, so I played very sparingly on his.. And I gotta say it was a very fun and immersive (is that even a word?!) game. So if Skyrim is anything like Oblivion, I might actually buy it. We'll see, all depends if it's even available for the PS3.

I will buy Skyrim if there's at least an OPTION to simplify the level-up system as opposed to Oblivion. I've tried to play through Oblivion 4 times now, and what ultimately kills it for me is having to...

1. Have a pen and paper out with all of the skills and what stat they are governed by out, and tally off everytime I level up one of those skills to make sure I hit ten of each stat before I gain a level.
2. Keep casual track of what skills you've been leveling up so that your stats go up at least somewhat close to their maximum value everytime you level up, and ultimately get the crap beaten out of you by random baddies later in the game, turning every battle into a cat and mouse of bash, block, bash, backtrack while healing, keep healing, use a potion, repeat.
3. Don't level up and constantly be annoyed by the level up icon taunting me, daring me to take a nap.

The way I see it, it would take minimal development time to implement the OPTION for at least one type of simplified levelup system and this would make the game more accessible to less hardcore RPGers... Perhaps, say if you gain 8 ranks in Strength skills, 10 in Wisdom, and 10 in Speed when you level up... As long as you gain two more ranks of Strength skills before you go to a bed you still get the maximum Strength bonus. And maybe another option even more simple than that, where you simply level up everytime you rank up 10 skills governed by 3 separate stats.


So, does anybody that's been following the Skyrim development closer than I have have any idea how the levelup system(s) compare to Oblivion?

Yeah, but it might just as much be a cause as it is an effect. I mean, when you don't have a girl around, you end up with one heck of a lot of free time. You might go clubbing every week and bang with random girls but there are still way too many hours in a week which you could fill up with something else.

And I don't see why gaming is more harmful in that way than watching TV, playing D&D (Zombie), spending your days obsessing about German (NSD) or arguing online, with total strangers, about a sports team which you really can't change anything about (All of us here).

It's the whole timesink thing that does it. And gaming is just the most widely-popular, non-accepted timesink around atm.

As far as gaming and marriage goes, I just don't have the energy anymore to game competitively. I used to average about 3-4 hours/day at StarCraft II and was pretty close to qualifying for some pro-am tournaments, but playing and practicing at that level takes quite a bit of energy and concentration. Now that I'm working in an office where I'm supposed to be supervising a bunch of idiots and I've got a wife to distract me that I'd quite frankly rather be spending time with, the priorities have kind of shifted a bit.

I did everything possible in Oblivion. By that, I mean, I earned every achievement in the game, including the two major downloadable content. It took me forever, but that game was so satisfying. I'm definitely looking forward to Skyrim. The reviews are off the charts, as expected, and they look like they enhanced just about everything about the game.

Regardless, best video game series ever. If any gamer here is into sci-fi and hasn't played Mass Effect they seriously need to go get it.


I refuse to call any series or game "the best ever" because my moods change over time. There are a lot of okay to good games that I consider to be much better than they probably are because of pure nostalgia. But yes, the Mass Effect series is a breath of fresh air for shooters AND RPGs.

You don't speak sex, besides, that'd be a new thread!
