Prove him wrong.

No. While he does rage a bit too much, he raises legitimate points. I dislike the way they took Skyrim, it was too dull (both graphically and gameplay-ifically (that's a fucking word)) and dumbed down. Removing item degredation and not implementing a hardcore mode despite including a huge food-crafting tree is an abomination. What would you rather have, the tomato that heals 3hp, or the healing potion that restores a quarter of your AUTOMATICALLY RESTORING HEALTH.

It's far, FAR too easy to become leaders of factions. In Oblivion you had to grind the fuck through quests in order to become the head of anything, yet in Skyrim you do a few basic and forgettable missions them BAM, you're the leader.

The colour. My god, where the fuck is the colour in this game? Everything is grey and unappealing to look at. I want variety in the palette, you don't need different hues of grey to make your game "realistic" or "edgy", it just makes you look colourblind.

I could also go on about how Skyrim is a big disappointment for me, but not only do I have both Morrowind and Oblivion to entertain me, but Skyrim is still a fun game, despite its countless flaws.

Jesus fuck those faction leader quests. That first stormcloak one was fucking awful. >go to this random glacier in the middle of nowhere
>30 minutes of walking later
>kill this one mob that dies in two hits
>come back

I felt cheated in that "quest" too. I got there, expecting some kind of epic fight or a trap or...something. But no, kill the Ice Wraith, and drag your ass back.

I never went with Ulfric, he's a racist asshole (so why he accepts the help of my Argonian thief I have no idea). Empire all the way!

Yeah, too bad the empire and rebels were completely interchangeable, even the "dig up dirt on an enemy leader" was on both sides. For the rest of it, it was just
>go to this camp
>perform fetch quest
>come back
>meet with soldiers to attack this completely useless fort

Even with the final battles, run into this city with 6 other guys, randomly swing your sword at the big brown mass of friendly and enemies, accidentally TK quite a few people on your side, other people get stuck because of bad bot-pathing, get to final scene where you kill the two big leaders, one of them glitches in the geometry so they look all fucked up, try to hit them in an epic moment, shit combat makes you miss, moment ruined, two or three tries later they die, 'epic' speech, that's the last you ever hear of it.

I just wish there was a good "end" to it all. You single-handedly win the war for one side, become the listener of the Dark Brotherhood, head of the companions, arch-mage, and you fucking kill Alduin and save the entire world. And what happens?

"What's the matter? Someone stole your sweetroll?"
"So I heard you're a member of the companions, what do you do? Fetch the mead?"
"Maybe I'm the dragonborn, and I just don't know it yet!"

The quests had no scale of grandeur about them. In Oblivion you actually saw people going apeshit over the Oblivion gates. And when you beat the main quest they're all like "OMFG I LOVE YOU!!!". With Skyrim you just carry on being faceless hero #47.

or at least be Thane or something of all the holds, just to show people gave a shit.

Being Thane does jack shit. Nobody cares, it just lets you off when you get caught stealing or breaking into someone's house.
