yeah and there are some surprisingly simple things that they still haven't fixed - I see no reason why my character should be able to walk through fire pits, torch flames, or anything of the sort without getting hurt. It has baffled me seeing as modders fixed it in both Morrowind and Oblivion.

Anyways I love most of it so far - the game balance is generally excellent and I have come across things that I have no chance in hell of standing up to. The spiders are fantastic. The quests I have encountered are at least as good as they were in Oblivion and most seem substantially more involved or believable. The character animations are surprisingly good for the first time in the series. I love the environment traps like oil puddles - I wish you could electrocute water with a shock spell of some sort though.

Generally what I find the best is that the dungeons have some meat to them - I love the scale. It reminds me of Daggerfall only without the randomness.

Definitely a great game though - completely surprised me (much in the same way DX:HR did).

Ebony bow with ebony arrows (24 + 20 + 18 enchanted fire damage).
Oh, and I have ebony armour and ebony gauntlets.
Lol, the only ebony thing I've seen so far is a shield. Plus, I think I levelled up my non-combat skills too much (lockpick, sneak, pickpocket) and now I have to sneak around even more. But this has made for a very tense gameplay, which I like.

I am loving the game so far. It's really huge. I have just put in about 10 hours into it and I'm still in Whiterun. Best game this century definitely.

I just found out that I can make Lydia chop my wood for me. (hmm..this sounds dirty). Easy money. I'm working to get my smithing up now with all the iron and steel ingots I can now afford easily.

I love this game, it's unlimited fun.
Level 24 or 25 can't remember and I feel like I have so much to do and I still feel like I still at a low level.
Is it just me or this game is awesome compared to oblivion.
I kind of hated oblivion's story line because there is nothing special about your character like in morrowind in which you are the Indoril's reincarnation and in skyrim you are the dragon born.
Oblivion was too dull and I hate the imperial theme in which everything is so in order and boring.
In skyrim it is lively and you can become a werewolf, what's better than that.
I love how in Skyrim you have awesome options and so much to do.
Morrowind was my favorite elder scroll along with the expansion packs that made it all the more awesome after kicking Dagoth Ur's butt.
Also another thing why oblivion wasn't my favorite there was no real final fight against a main enemy just Septim transforming into akantosh's avatar and fighting mehrunes dagon.
I don't like the mehrunes dagon story because come on he is a big idiot who just doesn't give up.
Every time he makes plans somehow a hero is mysteriously made to kick his butt.

Just made my first daedric artifact! Ha, it's awesome, but not as good as my ebony armour collection (it was upgraded to legendary).

Oh, and killed my 21st dragon!

Just got to level 24 - barely started the main quest and have been doing all sorts of crazy side quests. My Favourite so far involved opening a fake Heart of Lorkhan in the underground dwemer city of Blackreach - which is the best dungeon I have played in an ES game since Daggerfall.

Seriously - I used to think Morrowind was the best game in the series, but now I don't think I could go back and play it again (even with my vast collection of mods that fix combat, upgrade the graphics, etc.) - Skyrim has spoiled me. Finally Bethesda has created a game that mixes first person action seamlessly with their unique RPG skill system (which is now mostly balanced). I think this is the best game I have played since the original Deus Ex.

Dark elf, I am one and it rocks.
Just know when you choose dark elf you will severly out of place compared to being a Nord.
I choose dark elf and boy oh boy I feel hated at times for no reason.
I am a spellsword type character too and really the only thing that matters about what race you are is your start out in your fighting style.
Later on in the game being another race bearly matters.
A helpful hint is it is really hard to level up destruction magic so I prefer regeneration and conjuration which is really fun.

I'm just going to get shadowmere and blast him with destruction until I am level 100

Also I was thinking a dark elf was better also, it is sooo ugly though
