Beyond that, I really enjoyed it, right up until the day I burned out right in the middle of Shivering Isles and never played it again. But I had played it for hundreds of hours before that. I guess I'm sort of the opposite of Pants, I love games like this - wandering, exploring, completing all the side quests, scraping together enough points to advance to the level. The endless quest to level up always drives me more than anything.
Well said sir. I could not agree more. The main story in Oblivion was so repetitive for me, I just did the guild quests and gave it up. Skyrim, on the other hand, this game is gonna sap all my free time.
