Death is nothing to us, since when we are, Death has not come, and when death has come, we are not.
Funny ..or not so funny is that Skyrim is a game that left my gut with a sinking feeling.
What i saw was not a great game,definitely not worth buying a console just for that game but after a couple weeks and was bored i gave in.
I played for a bit thought ok,graphics over rated ,people don't know what graphics are i guess but i wasn't there for graphics,i was there after hearing all these great things about the game.
Well to justify buying a new console and the game ,i forced myself for a week to keep playing,that was it, had enough and gave my console and game away.I felt really dumbfounded listening to all the hype,ending up in some small circle where i had to kill a Dragon to move on felt so linear and cheap.What...that gate door won't open until i kill the dragon or what,how lame.
Imagine if i couldn't get out my front door until i paid the paperboy...yeah just saying...dumb.
I was unhappy still a year later for wasting my money which i can't remember how much but with the game was likely around 400 bucks for a total of maybe 10 hours game play.
So Skyrim is the sole reason,i will never buy another console ever again.Now to be a tad bit fair,i do sort of remember hearing talk the PC version was better quality but there were no PC versions in the store at the time.So now when i see all the Nintendo Switch advertising,i laugh and look the other way...no way in hell am i buying a crappy console.

I'm so tired of Skyrim that those regions of ESO are by far my least favorites. Maybe it's the half-wit drunken Nords that all sound like extras from the movie Fargo.Rumor has it that the next SP ES game will take place in Valenwood. Wood elf lore and the forest setting... now, that's something to look forward to.
Honestly this article is way off base. TESO is so vastly inferior, that playing Skyrim beforehand will only set you up for disappointment, as countless fans have expressed.
The new remastered Skyrim looks really good. I was surprised at how well that was done. My son is playing remastered on PS4 and he's having as good a time as his modded Steam version.That said, every single time I play Skyrim I end up doing some short deed and logging into ESO. With the way it's grown and progressed ESO is a better game in every possible way.Skyrim questing feels so on rails. The werewolf quest chain is a good example. Don't want to become a werewolf then your time with them has ended even though you've been through thick and thin with them. Suddenly they have nothing else to say and the narrative at that corner of the world dies. It's no more permissive than ESO to me.Skyrim feels empty. That sort of feeling I remember getting when going over to my grandparents as a kid, to take care of the house, when they were away. It just felt empty like all the reasons you enjoy visiting are missing - the people. The rest is just window dressing.Combat in ESO is so much better for me. It feels tight and interactive. Skyrim combat feels clunky like they wanted the flexibility of turn based decision making in an action system. It's one of the most immersion breaking combat systems I've ever played. The constant pause and menu surfing drives me crazy. Yeah, I'm going to eat a full meal between turns to regen. Lame.ESO looks better. The character models. The world. Everything. I don't play with Skyrim mods really because I want the play the game the creators made, not some hobby project by modders. If I just wanted single player eye candy I can get it in other titles without having to deal with modders.
...but what if you don't care about Skyrim?
Life is Short, Read a Book.
I play ESO but I hate the guild system with a passion. It does nothing for guild loyalty ( exactly the opposite in fact ) and does nothing for those Skyrim players that want to experience the solo side of the game. If you are not in a trade guild then you are only playing half a game really. There are a wealth of players out there that Zenimax are missing out on because they continue to force people into this system and imo will miss out on those potential players until they implement a global AH which they should have included with One Tamriel. Either that or fix the group mechanics that still suck.
ESO feels like an empty husk of a world. Yeah it seems busy with all the people running around and whatnot. The game is still extremely bland. The world is depressing, and everything revolves around combat.
It never grabs me like the true ES games, where you can just wander and stumble upon treasures or traps, and meet interesting characters.
