Why is Skyrim still so popular?

I got tired of it after one playthrough.

It was over whelming my first attempt at playing
Took a year off
Got snowed in by 3 feet of snow
Burned out on Call of Duty
Downloaded this game
Discovered the magic of sneak + archery

Now in love with this game.

Dwarf shortage.

Because it's one of the best games ever, IMO at least.

the options in play style are immense, the quests are infinite, the storylines are good - excellent, the environment is beautiful, the sense of accomplishment is high, the thrill level from sneak killing or for full on melee is great, beating a difficult dragon fight is awesome, customization, spells, crafting, simple exploration, etc. (i could probably go on for ages but you get the idea)

I feel sorry for you then. I have so much playtime in this game it probably cost me less than a penny per hour of amusement.

If you try to fail and succeed, what happened?
If a turtle has no shell is it naked or homeless?

Obvious troll thread is obvious. Go back to the COD boards and do this crap. We don't need it here.

Because there is so much too do. People like TC expect it to be a fast pace game but obviously is not a real Elder Scrools fan. Essentially you can have one character do every quest, side quest, objective, side job, etc. You can run a Mages' College, a Thieves Guild, an assassin brotherhood, a band of great werewolf warriors, and more. It all depends on how you play. Maybe you should try a thief, wizard, or archer (assuming you played a beatstick). I am playing a character that uses nothing but Dagger and bow. It's all on how you play. You can pretty much just immerse yourself. It's not meant to be a game you just play through. There's too many things to do for that.
