I wanna reach through my Laptop screen and stab you for saying this
As much as you don't like either, you must admit that, technically speaking, they are both very impressive.
you just called skyrim technically impressive? that game is a mess on all platforms. the gameplay/combat and animations are a disaster for 21st century standards.. 30+ sec load screen the game.. only thing slightly impressive was the scope and graphics..
thats all I'll give skyrim

To be fair, Skyrim was ambitious. If it weren't such a buggy mess (even after over a year of patching) I'd argue that it's one of the top five RPGs on the 360. As for it being influential, I think it might have come out too recently to really influence any gamers taste or gameplay design.
