You get the game. Pop it in your console:

#1IamChaChaPosted 1/10/2011 8:46:15 AM
1.You pick which gender?
2.You focus on what kind of combat character?

You finish with the customization, and are cast into the world. You:

3.Wander and observe the environment outdoors
4.Wander and explore indoor areas
5. Look for side quests
6. Follow the first mission of the main quest
7. Look for an enemy

You've got 4 hours in your belt, and are amazed by what's going on. You:

8. Put the game down and check gamefaqs for others' experiences and tips
9. You put the game down for some time so that you don't burn yourself out
10. You keep playing, doing what you were doing previously
11. You keep playing, trying some other aspect the game has to offer
12. You check the achievement list and figure out which ones you want to tackle later

13 hours into the game. You come across your first minor annoyance. Due to the kind of player you
are and your experience with other elder scrolls game the annoyance is most likely:

13. Graphical
14. Glitch-related
15. Limitation related
16. Not being wowed/more of the same
17. Promises not met
18. Too hard/easy
19. Mechanics are easily broken
20. Not as fun as previous games.

300 hours later. You think this game is most likely:
21. One of the best RPGs I've ever played
22. As good as Oblivion
23.As good as Morrowind
24.Worse than one of the above
25. Better than one or more of the above

When the game comes out, brethren, I hope you remember this topic. I hope you remember your choices
and compare them to the real life happenings. This way, you can better gauge things for Elder Scrolls VI

You get the game. Take out the manual and and read it while you go for a massive pre-gaming binge crap.

Agentspoon, that's a given.

Well written, but what is the point of this topic?

3, then 7.
6 then 4.
5 waits until after the MQ is finished.

11 or 10, depends on my experiences so far.


25, hopefully.

Is most likely me.

Guess we'll find out.

aviolentfluid, it's basically to see what the majority of people feel eager to do, while also keeping in mind our initial thoughts and comparing them to what actually happens when we get the game. I'm so giddy, I'm just imagining what I'm gonna do first. I was very late to the party in playing Oblivion, but when I finally did, I was consumed. Hopefully the same will be true here.

Thanks for the clarification. I hope you don't think I intending to be rude.

Like you, I am very excited. As I slowly approach the age of 30, I worry that my passion for gaming will dwindle. However, with the approach of every new Elder Scrolls, I begin to feel like a kid again. Skyrim has me excited in a way that no game can come close to.

That being said, I agree with you 100%. I think it s important to keep things in perspective, because like all games, the final product (while wonderful) won't be perfect.

1. Male
2. Main Sword, Bow backup

9 or 10
14, maybe. I didn't really experience any of that in the previous ES games.
21, probably. I felt this way with morrowind and oblivion before.
