Now that this game has finally come onto my possession I can get involved in that pointless flame war where Skyrim is compared to Skyward Sword even though the two games are ultimately nothing alike and the whole debate mostly boils down to 2011 Nintendo fanboys getting involved in the Console Wars because they don't realize how stupid the whole thing is.

So yeah, Skyrim is better than Skyward Sword

Skyward Sword is better tho.

In all seriousness every once in awhile I get tempted to try this out because everyone lost their shit over this game but I really couldn't get into Oblivion and I'm not sure I really want a huge neverending game nowadays anyway.

@Zero

If it gets cheap enough, you should try it. I didn't get too far in Morrowind or Oblivion either, but Skyrim remains one of two open world games I've ever actually finished... the other being BotW.

Yeah, it's a huge time sink though. I was unemployed when I beat it, so there's that. Haha.

It's true that Skyrim can be played as a neverending game, but you could also see it as a game where you decide where it ends. There are a few major plotlines that you could decide to follow, and tons of sidequests - some of which lengthy enough to be seen as a major one, if you'd like.

Me though, I obsessed about the game when I first got it and could barely stop playing it, but today I mostly play it almost the same way I used to play Animal Crossing. I visit Skyrim every once in a while just to see what's up. Because there's always something to do, and despite the game's traditional Bethesda jank practically everything you do feels rewarding in the end.

Sometimes I decide to just walk aimlessly straight into the wilderness somewhere and see what happens. Even though the tech's not the cutting edge anymore it's still a game full of beautiful scenery and with Jeremy Soule's atmospheric soundtrack in the background a simple stroll around Skyrim becomes something almost meditative. Until you run into some panicked victim of a recent assault, a frost dragon swoops down to attack a nearby settlement or you spot that guy that you suspect killed your friend from that one quest a hundred hours ago, but all of that's amazing too and will never not feel welcome to me.

Skyrim seems pretty eager to just dump mountains upon mountains of lore on you. It's honestly really cool just how much thought they put into the backstory of this world.

The cost isn't really the issue, just the time it would take to really get into a game like this. I still haven't even played Xenoblade 2 yet! And Dragon Question XI!

The lore is very impressive, but being the result of several games spanning decades it's no wonder the lore is so detailed.

@Zero
Ah, but then go play Xenoblade 2!
