Skyrim is awesome but as an OCD Min-Maxer I have 9999 hours of research ahead of me.

Also, I installed it on my 360 hard drive even though I knew it would mess up some of the textures and boy did it. It's strange seeing some of the random SUPER LOW REZ textures on rocks and things.

No, I was saying that WOW had too many garbage stats. For example, if a DK wants to swing an sword as hard has possible he needs just the right balance of:

-Strength
-Melee Hit
-Expertise
-Mastery
-Haste
-Crit
-Attack power
(and since it's a DK)
-Spell Hit

Do we really need to RESEARCH and MANAGE 7 separate stats to improve "swing sword"? They might as well add in "air resistance" and "humidity" in there.

In skyrim there is 1 stat that improves your ability to swing a sword. It's called:

-sword 1-100

I bought this game this weekend and I'm amazed at how massive it is. I haven't played any of the previous elder scrolls but so far I'm very impressed with skyrim.

The guide book is 650 pages!!! Flipping through it made this game seem never ending.

I also cut deeply into my sleep last night for Skyrim. The game is VERY compelling and fun. There's definitely an issue of "ok, I will do this one last thing".

Accomplishments so far:
-Killed 6 dragons
-Joined the Mercenary, Theives, and Mages guilds, and I'm stalking the Assassin's guild.
-Got splattered by a friendly giant
-Been to all 9 capitol cities (thanks taximan!)
-have about 400 books in my house (relocating every book in the game is an old Elder Scrolls tradition)

I was playing and came across a small pond with a dead naked woman sprawled on a rock. Her clothes were neatly arranged with a letter from her diary.

Based on her diary she was clearly raped by some hill people. I thought this was kind of a disturbing thing to put in this game.

I've long suspected you are a hill person so I see how this story might make you want to play.
