And then continues to attempt to explain why the game is bad by using his meaningless opinion as the cornerstone reasoning against said overwhelmingly large amount of people's opinion in an act to discredit what the vast majority agrees on.

If the game wasn't good, the faggot wouldn't have to continue to try to explain to people why it's bad.

It's like a joke; if you have to explain it, it's not a joke.

And then attempts to redirect the subject due to his lack of grounds and value of argumentative points by pressing the "opinion" sticker onto a his argument of which he has, up to this point, stated as fact, therefore admitting that his prior statements actually have no ground and in doing so executes his argument as false due to the fact that they were made prior as factual statements rather than opinion.

Rinse repeat.

They're all the same, every last faggot that does this on every last skyrim post.

Only to once again, pull the original statement back even further from its origin of a remark of proving the point that the game is bad into a haphazard plea of the original statement being nothing more than an opinion, in an attempt to nullify an argument he did not win rather than replying to the former rebuttal made simply because he didn't understand it; creating a façade of smug attitude in attempt to hide the truth that he has, and ever had, no actual worth in the subject matter, nor in any other, but a simple mind bent only on pushing a message that no one but himself agrees with, nor wishes to endure hearing.

My favorite part about any post even remotely related to skyrim is that there is always some random faggot that has to try to explain to an overwhelmingly large amount of people why the game is bad because he was the only one that didn't like it.

#101 - trolljunkusa (09/18/2016) [-]
I mean story wise yeah.

You can finish skyrim in a day easy if you blow through the main quest, and it suffers from abrupt endings. Nothing pisses me off more than the final boss only being part of the game for one event. Yeah alduron was in the first scene, but you dont see him again till the last boss fight

and the faction quest lines were okay at best

I liked the towns in Oblivion better because they were bigger and i could actually believe that they were important and filled with people. Not like most of skyrims towns and cities with like 10-17 houses and like 20 some people, if that.

Plus, Whats with the fucked up fortresses and walls?
" We are in middle of a civil war where we want independence and then a fight with the Elf Empire"

"But what about the Walls and shit for defence?"

"Who cares?"

Skyrim has much better mechanics, but the faction quests and even the main storyline to a certain extent were much better in Oblivion. ESIV has you stealing a goddamn elder scroll and playing the unwitting catspaw to a murderous lunatic trying to destroy kill the Night Mother. Even the Mage's Guild questline is better for the most part, Mannimarco making a much better final boss than Ancano ever could.

Give me Oblivion with Skyrim's mechanics and I would be a very happy gamer.

Skyrim has better mechanics to a degree.

I was a big fan of magic in Oblivion, and Skyrim kinda ruined that aspect of the game. I liked being able to use both a sword, shield, AND cast spells. You can't really do that in Skyrim.

I also prefer Oblivions leveling system, with how skills and attributes were seperate things.

Also hotslots. Why is it that in skyrim whenever i want to summon something i have to go into the spell menu and select that spell, use that spell, then go back into the menu to requip my weapons? do they expect me to do that every 30 seconds while i have my summons? it gets very annoying having to do that.

#116 - KazumaKyu (09/18/2016) [-]
The inability to do SnS and use spells was the best thing they did to the magic system. Made you specialize, forced you to choose. Yes Skyrim allows you to be the best at all of the things, but you don't get to USE all of them at the same time. Wonderful change.

You are the only person I've met who liked Oblivion's leveling system. If you chose non-combat skills as your main skills, you had to micromanage EVERYTHING if you wanted the enemies to stay on curve with you. Too much leveling main skills meant the enemies had a thousand times your combat level. Too much leveling your combat skills meant you were a god fighting giant rats.

The hotslots thing IS annoying, but there is the favorites menu. Works similarly. And you can bind things in the favorites menu to number keys, so...
User avatar
#117 - thenez (09/18/2016) [-]
Well fuck me, i didnt know about binding things in favorites to keys.

Also, the same thing can be said about skyrims leveling system. Level your combat skills too much and when you level up your going to fight enemies that arent as strong as you. level your sneaking, alchemy, enchanting, restoration, alteration, illusion, etc., and your going to have a hard time.
User avatar
#122 - KazumaKyu (09/18/2016) [-]
But at least Skyrim's system is the logical one. The only way the Oblivion system is logical is if you choose all combat related skills for your main attributes. Otherwise things work in reverse, which is stupid.
User avatar
#133 - thenez (09/18/2016) [-]
Well why wouldnt you choose combat skill as your main ones? All that choosing those skills does is make them level slightly faster and goes towards your characters level.
User avatar
#134 - KazumaKyu (09/18/2016) [-]
Well heck, what if you wanted to be a thief or a mage? Only one of the magic skills is really any good at combat, so if you assume you're leveling them all equally you'd be fighting minotaurs in no-time with a journeyman skill level in Destruction. And then you would get raped. What about a thief character? Lockipick and speechcraft aren't gonna help you fight the minotaur. It's a role-playing game. You want to focus on the skills that fit the role you want to play, not all of which are going to be related to combat. If I'm a mage I don't want one-handed weapons to be one of my main attributes, I want that increased leveling speed to go to something I actually use! But as I level the things that I actually care about and increase my character level as a result, my combat power doesn't really go up very much. And then you're getting raped by minotaurs.
User avatar
#135 - KazumaKyu (09/18/2016) [-]
Which is why in the end the best way to play oblivion was to make the skills you never use your main attributes. Mostly that meant the magic schools you weren't interested in, since the leveling of those is very easily controlled. You NEVER wanted athletics or acrobatics to be a main attribute, as you couldn't really control when those leveled. You went to town increasing the skills you cared about while sitting at level one, killing rats for half the game instead. Which is just silly.

I found the melee combat mechanics in Skyrim to be incredibly uninspired. If you're not going stealth (which is fun, I admit), your two options are "horizontal swing" and "vertical swing". Not to mention hitting people felt like hitting a squishy, flat wall.

It was also a little disappointing that every upgraded version of a weapon type was just a reskin with a stat boost.

That being said, it was still pretty fun, I just had to invest myself in the world and not the combat. (And stealth, that stayed fun for a while)
User avatar
#99 - KazumaKyu (09/18/2016) [-]
I never said the mechanics were particularly inspired, just that they were better than Oblivion's. Stealth in Skyrim is clearly the way to go if you aren't modding ridiculous spells into the game, only thing that could really make it better is if they didn't get rid of Chameleon.

I hear the magic in oblivion was way better/cooler. Never played it myself.
User avatar
#102 - KazumaKyu (09/18/2016) [-]
Magic in Oblivion made you feel more powerful and actually scaled properly with your skill, so there is that. But I rather like the changes they made so that you can't have sword'n'board AND a spell on at all times. Making you take up a weapon slot for your spellcasting was a good idea.

Well that's the thing, there are mods that add all sorts of shit from oblivion, not all of it obviously, but lots of the shit people liked from oblivion, into the actually well functioning (by comparison) skyrim. yet people still say oblivion was a a masterpiece

Oblivion
>Story moderately interesting
>Faction quests moderately intresting with faction progression that feels somewhat meaningful
>Actual RPG mechanics
>Intresting NPC's and side quests
>Mods improve upon (the massive number of) technical shortcomings, visuals, bugfixes and add fanmade content.

Skyrim
>Main story is fucking awful
>Faction quests are on par with main story
>Most side quests are simple fetch quests, although a few are intresting.
>RPG mechanics stripped down
>NPC's are just annoying (get to the cloud district much?)
>Actual technical execution a lot stronger, lots less bugs than Oblivion, less offensively jarring textures ect.
>Gameplay is tighter
>Mods used for bugfixes, visual improvements and to add RPG features from previous games that were missing.

The problem is that Skyrim shouldn't need mods to add elements that were once considered core in a TES game. With each successive game, one would expect to be able to do more and more things in a more and more interactive world. But instead, the opposite is true.
Oblivion was great, I wouldn't call it a masterpiece. But compared to Skyrim it's fucking 10/10 because Skyrim went backwards in most of the aspects that people loved the TES series for, Bethesda certainly don't deserve praise for the fact that fans of the series made the game semi-decent with mods.
