    I find that dwemer ruins look better as stone. I looked at that mod that changed the textures and it might be more lore-friendly or something, but the vanilla ones look better.

    Actually now that I think about it, there is one problem is Skyrim that has been bugging me for the longest time.

    Why haven't they fixed that fucking bug with Illia that prevents you from asking her to follow you without the use of console commands?!

    The honeymoon is over and everyone looked at their new wives and realized that she was exactly the same as their old wife only blond and not brunette.

    I've played countless hours of Oblivion since it's release and if I wasn't too lazy to reinstall it I'd still be playing it, I'm still playing Morrowind. But Skyrim is just Oblivion 2, it isn't the leap between games that Daggerfall was to Arena, what Morrowind was to Daggerfall, it's just the same game with a new coat of paint.
    Maybe because Skyrim was refining and fixing up all the stuff Oblivion added to the game series and overall in engine, function and feature, along with a housing of new graphics and optimization.

    Never mind that Morrowind was a jump onto new powerful hardware at its time (XBOX) and Oblivion to a new jump in its time (360).

    Skyrim is not on a next-gen console. Its on the 360. What else do you expect.

    I can't really enjoy Skyrim, I don't know what but I feel that all the characters in the universe are just boring and generic and it gets repetitive quickly. I can't really decide what is most fun to play as either, mage, warrior or rogue.

    I do like the game skyrim, i just dont like the setting.
    Better than Oblivion.

    I swear, if they kept Cyrodill as a jungle and not generic rolling plains with forests it would've been a lot better.

    I've found some Morrowind GOTY discs. Today is a good day.

    Edited:

    No manual though. It didn't require a CD key when installing, did it? It's been a while.

    You shouldn't be playing any of those, honestly. Skyrim's whole reason of removing classes was exactly that, just be yourself and do what you want. You might find it to be a bit more fun after doing that.

    I'm currently playing an High-Elf with a mix of Heavy/Light armor, 2-Handed Melee, but also occasional magic and archery and I sneak where I can.

    You're right but it ended up with me having leveled up skills here and there and eventually I felt I wasn't as advanced as I could have been. I'll try playing a warrior of some kind again, they seem to be the most simple types of characters to just enjoy games with.

    I'd suggest a spell-sword possibly, Sword/Axe in one hand, Fire in the other, combine with some Bow and sneak action and I think you got a pretty decent "class" going on.

    Isn't that what he said his problem playing Skyrim is? that he doesn't like the whole "be everything" stuff, you just suggested him to play as every class at once but I have the same problem with it, it just feels weird like that.

    No, my point was to focus on Destruction and One-Handed, but keep versatility by keeping a bow handy.

    Yeah I'll probably do a spell-sword. Do you think a 1h mace would work?

    Edited:

    Also I should use heavy armor since I'm not gonna block anything right? Or should I go for robes n stuff?

    Heavy armor and you should probably use some enchanting to upgrade it.

    Robes + heavy armor gauntlets, boots, and helmet works pretty good, but eventually enemies are gonna start doing a lot more damage, so you might want to invest in enchanting also, so that you can get the regeneration bonus from robes and put it on some heavy armor.

    I wouldn't exactly say that stone ruins in skyrim is expressly "lore-unfriendly" as there's nothing that says they have to be made of metal... separate group of dwarves.

    Mostly comes down to preference.

    Can I suggest we make a sort of compilation of the best/recommended mods for Morrowind, Oblivion and Skyrim to go in the OP? It'd probably cut down on the amount of people asking what mods they should get for the games.

    If you hate the slaughterfish in skyrim you should try morrowind. Cliff racers of the ocean.

    Step into the water and every slaughterfish for a 2 mile radius senses your corrupting presence in the ocean and descends to annoy you asunder.

    Urgh, I really like how in Skyrim you can join all kinds of faction. But it is dumb that you can join for instance the Companions, Dark Brotherhood, Thieves Guild, Empire or Stormcloacks, Foresworn, Deadric cults and such all in one. It somewhat breaks immersion.

    I always make different characters for each.

    I can handle cliff racers.

    I just have this thing about water and it seems to translate into current gen video games.

    Difference is you can start a genocide and kill the Cliff Racers like St.Jiub in Skyrim that isn't possible because you can't attack underwater

    It might be a problem if you have no self-restraint at all. If you wan't to play as a warrior but you keep leveling Destruction higher than one-handed, maybe you should play a mage instead, because its telling you that you're using magic more than anything.

    But that was because they were making it more organic and realistic with freedom.

    In real-life I am not a "warrior, mage, or archer". Or in a more realistic term.

    I am learning Game Level Design, while learning Texturing and also Animating.

    Life doesn't work on classes, and Skyrim is a step in the right-direction, its all about freedom. You can still focus in only Heavy Combat, but now you're not screwed if you wanted to dabble and learn other things. Just like in real life.
