I'm just going to say it again though..the game is insanely easy. I'm playing on "expert" mode too apparently. It's way to easy too become incredibly overpowered..that's probably the game's biggest downfall. Otherwise, the combat is less than spectacular. It's the vast world and endless quests that make the game fun. First game I've played where it actually feels like I'm in a 'real' world.
...little spoiler heh. Lucky I've finished it already.

Just had three dragons on the screen at the same time, and it wasn't during a cutscene, lol. Pretty awesome.

Edit: Just killed my first Elder Dragon. That guy had so much freaking hp. I'm level 23 now with 90 destruction. 50 hours in. Currently doing "Liberation of Skyrim," which should be the last part of the Civil War quest. It's been awesome so far being part of mass battles to take over cities. Got extremely bored of The Companions. Will go back to that after finishing this.

Just took over 2 hours to cure myself of Vampirism. It's probably one of the most terribly implemented features in the game, damn.

About to finish The Civil War quest. Just need to finish up The Companions afterwards to be done with all the side quests. At 53 hours now. Level 24.

Edit: Just finished. The mass battles were pretty awesome, but what terrible rewards, lol..

One of my very few qualms with the game, quest rewards are pathetic, spent nearly all the time (~200 hours save) using self-made items.

Yeah, you rarely get a really good equip. The best rewards probably come from the Dark Brotherhood quests. I think you get around 35k total for just finishing the main quests for it, and it only took about 5 hours to complete.

Has anyone here learned how to use the Creation Kit?

For Oblivion veterans who use an extensive library of mods (thanks to tesnexus), which did you find more fun? A heavily modded Oblivion or lightly modded Skyrim (since mods only recently started coming out)?

The underhyped: JuBeat, Drawn: The Painted Tower, Beatrider, Phoenix Wright, Broken Sword, Cut the Rope, Paladog, Isotope, Crystal War, Scarlett
