OP  12/15/11 12:56:43 PM#1

Yet another MMORPG.com writer has succumbed to the Borg and is fully and utterly immersed in Skyrim. As a player, there is so much to like about Skyrim that it's hard to resist. In a new column today, we take a look at Skyrim from a Player Perspective. Check it out!

The quiet in Skyrim is glorious. No trade channel – no channels at all, in fact. I can do what I want, when I want and where I want. If I want to spend hours rearranging my house (ahem, houses actually), I can, and nobody’s going to ask me why I’m not around to do dailies/dungeons/world events. For a brain somewhat frazzled by workload lately, the peace and solitude have been a boon… and yet, I miss my friends.

hmmm... what does the O stand for? Skyrim is not Online. its more of a Action RPG than anything else. and yes, I'd rather read about a MMO culumnist's experience with a Single player game than a re-hash of what we already know about SWTOR or any other game that's not out yet.


Furthermore, Skyrim has a lot of elements that many MMOs should look into for insipration. One of them is the crafting IT ACTUALY DOES SOMETHING USEFUL, and so is the classless levelling system, the great visual experience, fast travel, day and night actually influencing who's up and who's asleep and wether if you can sneak in a fort unseen.


Playing it, I've learned that being a magic user was a lot more challenging than in any other game and it takes a lot of time before you can actually rely ONLY on magic.


 


so yeah, if some MMO designers read what's out in the community and figure out that skyrim has it maybe the genre will evolve

I think SPORG is what most people have been doing while playing Skyrim.

with the way people act in MMO's nowadays I know i would rather play with NPC. at least i know i wont hear "dude your dps sucks" "omg is that your best gear" "LOLZ i just pwned you noobtard"

 

maybe I should create a mod that make the players companions say some of those as well as ninja items and go afk before a major fight. just so i can be reminded of the a**hats in mmo communities.

Long live Skyrim !


 


Can't wait for the development kit to be released in January, all that modded goodness will result in several different versions of the game, most likely. Not to mention world expansions and new crafting recipes and new clothing skins and ....

Yes Yes Skyrim is a good game..but..It's NOT glorious !!

 

1. It's suffers hard from "Consolitus" Wich is sad and limits the PC version..And If you don't have a controller(Xbox 360) for your PC , you will have to work with the bad keyboard/mouse port.

2. Conversations with NPC's is better than Oblivion but still very bad, sometimes you will end up in all sorts of odd situations, with the person you are talking to staring agains a wall and you staring at a table , with all matter of folks cackling about in the background and so it's impossible to actually hear anything from your dialogue.

3 The AI that handles if and when you have stolen/murdered someone is but funny, you can be out in the wilderness for days only to come back to civilisation and be greeted by the guards ..-"I know what you did " and yet you have absolutly no clue at all to what you actually did..So you will have to reload a 5 hour game session or face jailtime for something that not even the game seems to really know..

4 . The companion system..Well It's a shame really..

5. The combat..Is well bad..and In conjunction with your companion ..it's even worse.. This is partly the consol developments fault as far as I see it..Whats up with not being able to block If I have equipped spells in both hands ?  It could be explained like you have to focus for the spells to work etc, but all in all it's only because the game has to work fluently with a controller , and to many things at once for a controller is a big no no..

6. And If you think you can rid the land from all bandits, well forget it, because so many of the lands bad eggs are immortal and can't be killed. because It would naturally ruin some of it's quests, but isn't that really what this is all about, players choice ? But In this you seem to have no choice as If these bandits would actually hire you at a later stage even thou you tried to kill them all :)

It seems as If I'm one of few that thinks Skyrim is far from the best thing since sliced bread, It's far to overhyped..It's a good game, with a great open landscape..But as far as the story goes..Nah..

 

If and when ..A roleplaying game world is made with Biowares talent for story/dialogue and Bethsofts talent for open worlds, I would be all over it..I had my high hopes that Skyrim would have been this game, but sadly it isnt..

I would rate Skyrim 3/5

Skyrim has been a great diversion from MMOs. And personally I think it mostly has to do with the lack of the "omg you spent your talent points where?" crowd. Just being able to explore and enjoy a game and not be constantly reminded that I am only running at 85% effeciency at my designated role.

 

With that said I started SWTOR last night, and been keeping myself busy plowing through content... promised myself I would listen to the voice acting, but once I realized exactly how much voice acting there was I rolled my eyes and slammed space bar... but I don't skip a thing in Skyrim... what is the difference? My friends on vent going "omfg why are you only level 3 jesus christ hit space bar already" probably has something to do with it.

i agree with this, its like skyrim is trying to be an open world and SWTOR is trying to be a singleplayer game.

1- its not such a bad case of consolitis, and the mouse and keyboard work fine. except the inventory menus and trader interfaces are kind of funky and they could have ordered the items better.


2- you can still move your camera during those scenes


3- what are you taking about? sure didn't happen to me.


4- Yeah companions... sometimes they go AFK lol and you meet them back at your house the next day kinda weird but still not a major issue. the fact that they just cant help themselves but spring every trap is also quite comical.


5- your opinion. I think the combat is fine but yes I would like it if they made it easy to hotkey some spells, weapon sets and potions instead of going through the inventory during battle which sort of breaks the immersion (and the favorites menu is not much of an improvement)


I give it 4/5, your 3/5 is harsh

          You realize you can bind anything from your favorites menu to the 1 - 0 keys yea? I didn't at first, so I'm mentioning it just in case you hadn't noticed either.

1. I agree that its not perfect but im getting use to it now playing Skyrim with key board/mouse i refuse playing it with controlly no way:)

2. Conversation made ALMOST no progress after 6 years after alot of playing(250houres now) you starting to annoy how repeative and limited the NPCS saying always same sentence or words not alot more then Oblivion.

3. A.I is same as conversation ALMOST no progress in 6 years also annoying after while how dumb npcs are.

4. its a nice step forwards but its POORLY implemented with again the dumb A.I and annoying limited conversation your companion have its a mule nothing more.

5. Im rather content with combat as mage i love the dual powerfull magic and how i can shoot and attack mobs also with combo's like one hand sword other a fireball its nice. I agree with companion thats badly done i always say to company wait here most time behind some door or far away other wise it suddenly jump infront of your fireline lol.

6. i agree partly.

Game is by far not perfect but for me the freedom and open beautiful world plus the AWESOME DUNGEONS its still worth playing.

And becouse there is no other game out there that offers this kind of open free roaming world i gave it a 8/10.

I went into my house in Whiterun to find that girl inside.  I figured I could get away with killing her since she was an intruder.  Come to find out you can't hurt the children at all.  The guards came into my house once I attacked though.  You can't even Shield Charge them.  In a sick way it would have been funny to send them flying in the air even if they don't take damage...

I'm loving Skyrim(infact first Elderscroll game i'm liking) but I'll have to give it 3.5 with the ammount of bugs and poorly designed UI. I'll have to to agree with Vahrane regarding breaking the immersion. I take 1 point for it. Come on, with so many years of experience with RPG, bethesda could not come up with some intuitive UI? Also, I feel the world is so empty. It would have been better if the world had more foes, population. I spend 30 min walking to quest locations and only encounter I get is 2 wolf..! seriously?

Dead-gorgeous gameworld but I'm over it. The fun lasted 171 hours for me. (or quite a bit less if Steam also counts hours played when you are paused or tabbed out).




Good value for money nonetheless. I might revisit it in a year or so and have access to more player mods, hopefully making it a much better game than it is now.
