Game Over

I knew this would happen eventually but I didn’t expect it to slide into my brain just yet and cause me to decide I’m done with Skyrim.

I’m so done with it I could take it to Gamestop right now, trade it in and not be the least bit sad.

I’ve logged almost 386 hours with Skyrim. This isn’t a game I’m giving up without a second thought. Me and those dragons have developed a mutual respect and what would all the horse traders do for business if I wasn’t killing mine and/or getting the horses killed all the time?

So, for the time being, I’m retiring Skyrim. The first Skyrim DLC should be coming out soon and it’s sure to be a doozy. I’m content with putting the game away–or maybe trading it in before it looses too much of its value–and finding another game to entertain me until the DLC hits.

Such a tease...

Note that kill cams for magic and ranged combat are included in the new patch. The mounted combat? One of the things I was most excited about at E3 last year; it’s about damn time we saw something about it.

What about you? Done with Skyrim? Still haven’t played it? What are you playing right now cause I’m in need of a new game.

    I’ve been tired with it. I’ve only got about 75 hours into it and I’m in Sovngarde heading towards the “end” where I get to defeat Alduin. I’m calling it quits after that. The world and combat just don’t engage me like the Fallout series does (I’m way more partial to the gun combat and leveling system) so I’m going to head back into New Vegas for a while. I tried really hard to like it, I did the same with Oblivion as well. I’ll probably not buy any more Elder Scroll games though because, as much as I like reading about magic and dragons and this sort of world, I don’t like playing games with this kind of combat.

    •  @PhineasPoe I suspect what you’re experiencing–not being engaged in the world and combat system–is the wall I’m hitting. Probably why I’ve taken to sneaking around with a bow when I’m normally a magic kind of girl: the bow made head shots easier…which is great but not really the point in this type of game.
       
      Still, I’m looking forward to what they’re going to toss at us. A decent DLC will bring me back to the fold for a while. As things stand right now, I don’t have anywhere to do. I’m almost lvl 100 on all of the skills I care anything about so I can’t level. No leveling makes for a boring game for me.

       @TheAmyTucker Honestly, I don’t like fighting with swords and bows, or even magic for that matter. I like The gunplay of Fallout (and i don’t mean V.A.T.S). I focus on rifles and shotguns, I can scope a headshot from what seems like miles. I critical on every sneak attack and, on the few occasions that I don’t decapitate my foe, I switch to shotgun when they get close and eviscerate them. But I like the story better, the setting better, I like the focus on technology, I like the history of the war, I like seeing how the world has evolved since the war. I’m just really taken in by the story. I haven’t felt that with Elder Scrolls and it’s because I have to hack and slash and I don’t like it. But, I didn’t like the Dragon Age games either. The combat just isn’t enjoyable to me. Idk. Maybe I’m weird.

    •  @PhineasPoe Yes, you are weird. The obvious having been said, I’m with you on the story with the Fallout series. I do/did prefer them to Skyrim but I do/did love Oblivion.
       
      I love magic but I see myself moving away from that and going to a more FPS style which is surprising to me since I started so HARDCORE when it came to magic. You should have seen me in Diablo II; if it involved hand-to-hand, I ran like a scaredy bitch. And the Dragon Age games sucked.

    I haven’t picked it up in awhile. I don’t know if I’m *done* with it, per say, or just with taking a break from gaming (beyond arcade-type games) for a bit. But it definitely isn’t/wasn’t the obsession that Oblivion was for me oh, so long ago. 

    •  @thepsychobabble Skyrim was more of an obsession for me than Oblivion with is saying something since I was head-over-heels for Oblivion. I still haven’t puzzled out why Skyrim did it for me so much. You should have heard me trying to convince people to get the game. *hangs head in shame*Do you think you’ll go back to it when they drop a DLC?

    Replace dragon with snake, then it sounds bad/naughty. XD
