Do anything special? Like make the game you play more challenging or have your own house rules or anything?
-HUD off (no text when the (invisible) mouse cursor is over an item. Makes archery quite hard, but this gives it a more realistic and immersive feel).
a. no hp bar (mine or enemies)
b. No stamina or mana bar
c. reliant on more sound and sight
- .ini tweaks to make archery more realistic (arrow shoots in proper place, instead of magically higher...in vanilla, it shoots from above where it should actually be)
- no looking at the map, except near a camp(fire) or in a town or in/near a city. Maybe not the most realistic thing, but it is my "personal" house rule...I find it to be a lot more immersive
-Modded races to carry a LOT less than vanilla. Why would every race be able to carry the same exact amount? Why can everyone carry 60 weapons and 40 armors, and still not be encumbered? Okay, maybe an exaggeration...but I modded it to be a lot more realistic for each race.
-Modded in no fast travel
-Modded in MUCH MUCH tougher dragons. The first dragon you meet in Skyrim (not the one in the prison scene, but one you fight after)...took 30-40 minutes of fighting, NOT counting the reloads I did due to death. Vanilla skyrim dragons are such pansies
a. Modded in a overall tougher game experience
-Modded in hyporthermia and sleep/thirst/hunger
and that I think does it for the immersion and tougher gameplay mods, tweaks and house rules I did.
But yeah, that is how I play Skyrim. Not so hardcore that I do that I play death is death...but I still have a tougher game.
So what about you guys...do you play a certain way in games? Make it more challenging? Or heck, do you cheat in games and make it easier?
Mostly aiming for singleplayer/multiplayer games and not so much MMOs (hence why this is here)
