Why did you guys buy this game, (real deal)

Simple.

Product loyalty- Bethesda has yet to let me down

Quantity of content- I haven't done the math, but I've sunk hundreds of hours into Bethesda games at $60 bucks a pop. Best value in gaming in my opinion.

Quality of content- All the content in the world doesn't matter if it sucks (I'm looking at you Two Worlds)

I'm a huge fan of endless fetch quests.

I love Beth games and I wear Beth glitches and their work arounds like a badge of honor.

If I ever received a Beth game glitch free I would think something was wrong.

Because open world games are my crack. I enjoyed Oblivion immensely and knew before Skyrim was even released that it was going to be right up my ally. I love the freedom to go where I want to and do as I please. If I want to play this game as a skooma-addicted Khajiit that collects cheese wheels and breaks into people's homes at night to steal their shoes, I can. One of my characters is a reformed Breton thief, another is a older Nord hero, another is an evil Argonian master criminal, and yet another is a homicidal Khaiit who loves attacking and killing the elderly. I never run out of things to do or ways to role-play.

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.

I bought it because oblivion got me hooked. This led to me buying fallout 3 and New Vegas. Skyrim was a no brainer.

I've played Oblivion, but could never get more than 2hrs into the game because the faces were ugly, the graphics were decent (this was 2010 when I played it), and having only 5 actors doing every NPC's voice -and not to mention the talking was horrrrrrrible- my jaw dropped when I saw what was being done for skyrim.


I pre-ordered that btch and couldn't be happier, even today. I love the melee combat mechanics, I love the world, I love the graphics in the changing weather (I love when it snows, it looks real), and I love how the dungeon and cave designs are made.

I have since replayed Oblivion and actually beat it. Oblivion had no difficulty and the combat was boring. The oblivion gates themselves were boring and became an eyesore after closing the first one. God... you had to close about 12 more doing the main story questline.

I tried the "make your own spells!" in oblivion... but I like the mmorpg style of Skyrim better with "speccing" into schools of magic to unlock more. Though I do wish skyrim had more conjurations, like oblivion had. I think skyrim only has about 5, but at least u can summon 2 of them at once. :D

Truth is, I never really wanted it. My friend at work convinced me to try it out and a week later I was hooked. I've spent way more time than I care to admit on my many, many playthroughs, no two the exact same.
