Please teach us the algorithm required for inducing fun, because we obvously don't understand.

I guess if we judge it as some virtual reality simulator that you play when you're bored and have nothing better to do as opposed to a rule-bound game, then I can see the title serving that purpose well enough. The fact that it's compared to and elevated by its fanbase above actual games that are clearly better by any measurable, analytical standard is what I find upsetting, however. If people hailed this piece of software as a "good 'dicking around' simulator" instead of a "good game," then I wouldn't hold nearly as much enmity for it.
so in other words you're saying HAVING FUN IS ONLY VALID IF YOU CAN EXPLAIN TO ME WHY YOU FIND IT FUN. ♥♥♥♥ OPINIONS I WANT FACTS


You think it's an awful, horrible game. Fantastic, good for you. Tastes differ, it happens. But when you're talking down on somebody because they (GOD FORBID) think it's fun, then you've got some major problems. You're acting like your opinion is fact and it's really an unattractive thing to do.



Good job ZU. Nice knowin' we can make any thread into one huge argument if we put our backs into it.



Can we all just get along and talk about the game like civil people for once?



Gonna continue my journey up to Solitude once I get grab some food. I hope to god I see Argonians there because I haven't seen a single damn one the entire time I've been playing.

Re: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Buggier than a lollipop in an antfarm

Sorry for arguing so much, I do it a lot and it's stupid. I am also the cause more often then not.

I saw an Argonian. He was a bandit and I killed him.

Aside from that, nothing.

I came home early to play it. And it's just as I hoped it would. OMG I can't stop playing! Except I have to go to bed...

I haven't come across any Argonians yet, but I did meet an arrogant Khajit at the College of Winterhold. J'Zahar or something. He's a super dick.

Re: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Buggier than a lollipop in an antfarm

I came across an old woman living alone in the woods. Snuck myself her basement when she wasn't looking. inside was ritual stuff, human flesh, all that sort of ♥♥♥♥. when I got outside she wanted to kill me for knowing her secret and it turns out she was a witch.
Loving this game so far and can't wait to get home and continue playing again.

I have my first friend. Some Houscarl woman that I got after I killed a Dragon near a town.


Also, everyone should post their character if you can:

I'm getting sort of used to the UI, too. Though sometimes it's a little frustrating. Like hitting R instead of E when trying not to take anything.

It was still slow for me. Looking up and down in third person is still butt. I tweaked the .ini to make it better, but

Lydia. I didn't take her because she'd eventually die. And be useless.

And I'm not gonna post any screenshots because I'm ashamed of my settings. x3 ULTRA LOW. The light flickering/hdr/bloom kills me on higher settings.

I took Faedar from Riverwood on the Golden Claw quest and ended up killing him inside.

Scored his house key.

You could have just traded with him and taken his key instead of looting it off his dead body. But either way works.

My companion is... Uthgerd the Unbroken.


She's found in the first capital, in the inn. She's pretty brutal.

Pfft, this is a Bethesda game. Half the reason you play it is because you can kill unsuspecting people for little to no reason.

Besides a bandit, I ran across an Argonian on a big boat docked outside Solitude. She told me to piss off.



I had Sven as a companion (aka mule) for a while, but he took one swipe from a frost troll and died, so I fast traveled to Whiterun, fetched Lydia, travelled back to his body and dumped all his items on her. Sven's the bard in Riverwood.

Killing him wasn't actually my intention. I was showing my friend how the magic spells worked, and was aiming at Faedal, assuming that like most NPCs in games he'd just be like "hey, stop that!" a few times. After about 1/4 of his health was gone he was like "I KNEW I NEVER SHOULD HAVE COME HERE" and started to attack me, so I was like "agghh" and killed him.

Then took his stuff.

Oh God, at my boyfriend's house now so I can't play Skyrim or attempt this. Has anyone tried this method of stealing yet?

I saw that video before. Haha. I haven't tried it yet since I'm not a thief. I'm an assassin.

I'm in a most frustrating predicament. I'm out of lockpicks.

Re: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Buggier than a lollipop in an antfarm

I'll post my character later, when I get a chance to play again.
Killed a second dragon last night. I couldn't get it to land, so I finally led it back to Riverwood. Is that strategic or reckless endangerment?
Either way, it was awesome when the dragon was on its last legs and the "DOVAHKIIN! DOVAHKIIN!!" song kicked in.

I didn't actually do anything with her, but I feel like a geek for not being surprised at all by that. Her name's Anise, right? The moment I saw her name, I remembered reading about an "annis" hag in an old AD&D Monster Manual.

Thank you, Dungeons & Dragons!
