I was happy with the previous two and had a feeling this one would deliver as well.

I played a bit of Morrowind and enjoyed it. Found Skyrim in good condition at a pawn shop for $15 so I figured I didn't have much to lose.

I liked the previous ones and GameFAQS is very good at building hype.


Fixed.

I think message boards hurt gaming for me more than they help.


I stand by what I said. Bethesda is very good at marketting their games.

I liked the setting and style of the game and I like RPG's. And I had heard people raving about previous Elder Scrolls games, so I assumed it would be good.

Like ES games. Was not disappointed. Will buy next ES game.

It's hard to not like the Sons of Skyrim song playing while the trailer is playing. That live action trailer was really cool too.

Because it's The Elder Scrolls. That's why. I don't care how many DLCs will be released, I'm going to buy each and every one without hesitation, period.

As good as the games are, there IS such thing as a bad DLC. We just haven't seen it yet. Dragonborn seems to be better than Dawnguard, and goes for more of an "expansion" feel than DLC. Developers can screw up, so caution with your hype. The higher the hype, the higher the chance of disappointment if it doesn't meet your expectations.
I recall some people disappointed on what mounted combat turned out to be (then again, it's a patch). I even heard people hated Knights of the Nine expansion.

tl;dr

Careful into rushing blindly buying something, no matter how famous it's reputation is.
