About to start Skyrim, what to expect or bear in mind?

Anything that would enhance the feeling? It's the first time with any Bethesda or Elder Scrolls game, and I heard this game is a big deal.

There is definitely a bear fight early in the game.

Go in plain right now. Get a feel for the game and see what is up with it before you start modding it.

Start with the unofficial patches, the HD texture pack, SKSE, and most probably you'll want SkyUI too. Beyond that Play the game and tweak as you see fit.

Some roads you shouldn't go down because maps used to say there'd be dragons there. Now they don't, but that don't mean the dragons aren't there.

Derp. I forgot about SkyUI.

More than anything I want to know what to expect when I start the game or if there's anything that will enhance the overall feeling. But thanks for the recommendations!

The first troll you see in game will kick your ass and it was put there on purpose to prove that you aren't as powerful as you think you are.

Expect chatty nords for a good 5 minutes.

You can get an alternate start mod to skip all the intro BS and then be confused about where to go and what to do.

Use a fire spell/enchantment and watch the troll fall over dead real fast.

I'd also highly recommend pickpocketing if you're a pack rat. you get a nice bonus to what you can carry. Oh and there's a godly mod that'll reduce the weight of dragon bones for you. You'll come to understand that problem soon enough.
