    Is this true?
    there's very few reviewers i trust when it comes to mmo's, especially with this one because people love to hate on it. usually when they try to compare it to skyrim, a single player game.

    compared to other mmo's, i think it is quite good.

    to me the crafting, pvp, character customization, and the over all feel of the game is great. did they reinvent the wheel? no, but their approach is different than most other mmo's.

    but it does depend on who you ask. this game isn't for everyone but it is for me, at least for now.

    Game seem like they really half assed it. All the white races look and sound similar. Khajiits don't sound right, neither does the argonians, but if they have a console beta, I'll give it a shot. Still doubt I'll buy it till it becomes free to play.

    Only reason I say that is not just what I said before, but because I will never play the PVP in the game. My interest in Elder Scrolls in strictly story and character creation. So I'd only play the story mode and I wouldn't join player guilds, so mainly play alone or with 1 or 2 friends. So that's the main reason I don't wanna pay a fee, because I'd be paying for single player and that's it.

    So either I'll wait till it becomes free to play, which I think will end up happening at some point, or wait till Elder Scrolls VI.

    right now all premium accounts get free keys but they will open it up to free accounts in a couple days. its pretty much an open beta but its still under NDA.

    they are now giving away the rest of the keys to anyone with a free account, in case anyone is interested.

    clearly most people that have played the game disagree with you and your friends, just saying.

    and lastly, i play modded skyrim on the PC, don't know what to tell you about console glitches.

But I would think it would be harder to break this game like I ended up doing in oblivion lol. Yeah they shouldn't let me craft armor and allow me to add camelion to it. 100%+ invisibility sorta makes the game easy but the if I remember it was due to the horrible leveling of the enemies. If you didn't build you character perfectly you tended to get demolished.

    Skyrim I don't remember what happened. I think it fell to the back burner and never got brought back up again. And can't go back to it since it was on the 360 which doesn't work anymore :/
    well you can always play it for the first month and then cancel it if you don't think it is worth it. the first 30 days are free when you buy it.

    i don't know how many games in the past i have bought at full price only to beat in less time than that anyways. which is why i think if you enjoy a game and it has lots of content, its worth the subscription fee.

    but that's JMO

    Pretty much I wanted Skyrim to be good, much like with movies. Just because one sucked doesn't mean it's sequel will and vice versa. And I don't hate Skyrim, I think it's a good game....but at the same time I think it's one of the most overrated videos game to date and it's bugs and glitches ruin the overall experience of the game.

    That's the same as this analogy:

    1. A person hates the Matrix movie so much it makes them vomit.
    2. So, they decide to watch the rest of the series.

    What made you decide to buy Skrim if you considered the previous game of the series to be the worst RPG to ever exist?

    To add, I watched the 30min gameplay, it wasn't very interest at all. I didn't feel like anything being said or shown was worth it. The only way I'd buy this game is if they got rid of the fee and if it's on sale for $40.

    Now you are in here saying you are underwhelmed by the next game of the series?

    Going back to the Mateix Analogy, you hated the first movie, you watched the second movie, now you are complaining about the third one. If you hate Elder Scrolls games so much, why come and complain? Or maybe you are complaining because you want to see how people react? IE: Trolling
