Differences Between Oblivion and Skyrim?

Jail times. I have a 20000 bounty in Oblivion? Jailed for 100 days! I dun care if you are the Emperor's pet. 20000 bounty in Skyrim? You get jailed for 9 days.

What do you guys have?

Bump.
Over-encumbered in Oblivion, you can only turn.
In Skyrim, you move like a snail when over-encumbered.

Friends,

In oblivion, that crazy Persuade mini game. You have to turn that dial to the right place. I could NEVER tell if Argonions were smiling or frowning.

Its nice that went away. Thank you for sharing.

Magic and archery were useless in Oblivion. No way to beat it without going straight melee. Now in Skyrim both magic and archery surpass melee.

Something I actually miss from Oblivion, enemies gear lvling with you. I actually liked going into a dungeon and fighting people who had glass or daedric armor.

Also kinda miss creating spells

Lolwut?

Magic in Skyrim sucks at higher difficulties, your spells don't scale and only tickle the enemies while using up stupid amounts of Magicka.

Oblivion let you create spells that could blow up a whole city...

Also, melee is completely broken in Skyrim to the point where melee >>>>> everything else.

And in Oblivion melee was capped so you can only do 35 dmg, Skyrim's melee has NO cap...

Not sure if srs or just troll...

Bounties are distinct between the nine holds in Skyrim.
Skyrim has only three attributes (Health, Magicka and Stamina).
You can be a Werewolf/ Vampire Lord in Skyrim.
You can marry people in Skyrim.
You can dual-wield in Skyrim.

And a more personal one: The Thieves Guild questline got harder and the DB questline got easier.
