Oh you might like Skyrim then


Does the game have like a map where it tells you where the next main mission will start? Kind of like Far Cry 3, GTA IV, all those Free Roam games. That's why I hated Morrowind, it never told you where you needed to go, and if you got lost, you were screwed.

Cool! And can you kind of tell me the length of the Main Story? Not counting side missions, side quests, those stuff.

An hour and a half roughly. But that's not even a fraction of the hundreds of hours you will put into this game.

Also, Morrowind gave you directions on where to go in the quest log.

But why is Skyrim so time consuming, if the story is roughly two hours, like you said?

Also, the ending of an open world RPG should give a reason and a premise of how you return to your stomping ground. Far Cry didn't do this.

Also, the idea of not adding in a New Game+ = Utter Stupidity.

Because of the side quests, same thing with Farcy3, the majority of the time spent needed to play that game was spent on things that were all side aspects of the game.

The MAIN story is only roughly an hour and a half. Outside of that, you have a whole country in the middle of a bloody civil war to explore!

Do you fight for the Storm Cloaks to defend the old Nordic Traditions?

Do you fight for the Empire to ensure Skryim's security?

Do you walk the shadows and take out your foes with stealth?

Do you run in like Rambo and shatter the skulls of your enemies?

Do you burn the crap out of them with magic?

Do you fight for the honor of the companions?

Do you thieve and cheat your way to fortune?

Or do you, perhaps, kill for the night mother and fulfill contracts for the Dark Brotherhood?

The possibilities are almost endless!

There are no limitations in the game so I see no point in not doing everything you can (aside from being stuck with siding one side of the civil war).
