Skyrim sucked as an overall game. I enjoyed it for a while, but once you get passed the "kill everything in 2 power cuts" point it just gets repetitive. Archery and magic is too underpowered. The few things that can kill you do it in one hit, so it eliminates the battle. There are no rewards for the ungodly amounts of hoarding that you're enticed to do.

I don't know if the other Elder Scrolls games are like this, but I don't think I want to try them anymore.

oblivion and morrowind are better
in terms of content morrowind is best but its very hard to get into and melea is kind of underpowered as the skills are chance to hit based not damage based
oblivion has less going for it in terms of diversity but its a much easier game to get into and is better then skyrim when it comes to combat as everything is much more balanced
oblivions main downside is the difficulty slider as the ai doesnt change enemys just become more tanky/hard hitting
keeping it at about 40-50% should make everything enjoyable below 40 and everything dies in 1 above 50 and it will take 10 mins and 3 health potions to kill a rat
so keep it at 45% and its an incredibly good and enjoyable game
in context iv got 70 hours in skyrim
i have easily 500-600 hours in oblivion

neither archery or magic is underrated, just depends the way you play and what perks you use, especially if you use smithing and enchanting skills to really increase bow stats, i can kill most enemies with one arrow
User avatar #149 to #66 - ieatyououtaldaylon (08/07/2013) [-]
Magic was the most overpowered thing in the game, and the bound bow did a ton of damage.
#142 to #66 - Ken M (08/07/2013) [-]
2 shotting everything on master gets boring really really fast
That's why i stopped playing

Posting as anon because skyrim fanboys can't handle the truth

Your difficulty is probably too low if you're OP. Magic and archery are ******* amazing as well, I'm not sure what you're talking about. I will give you that Skyrim was very weak compared to Oblivion and Morrowind (the fourth and third installments, respectively), so you should try those since they will solve most of your complaints, though magic sucks in Oblivion.
#127 to #66 - Ken M (08/07/2013) [-]
ur doin it wrong then,
I've played every Elder Scrolls game thats come out since Daggerfall,
I find that Archery and Magic is OVERpowered, it depends on YOUR perks, and how YOU play the game, also setting your difficulty from "Novice" to "Master" is always refreshing,
User avatar #120 to #66 - PedoBearsAcomin (08/07/2013) [-]
Oblivion was so much better than Skyrim, you should try it
User avatar #126 to #120 - uhidk (08/07/2013) [-]
even though oblivion is a broken mess.

no seriously, **** oblivion.
User avatar #128 to #126 - PedoBearsAcomin (08/07/2013) [-]
**** your opinion
User avatar #133 to #128 - uhidk (08/07/2013) [-]
it's a fact, actually. oblivion is garbage.
User avatar #134 to #133 - PedoBearsAcomin (08/07/2013) [-]
Well its my favorite game of all time, so not really a fact
User avatar #136 to #134 - uhidk (08/07/2013) [-]
that doesn't make it good.
User avatar #137 to #136 - PedoBearsAcomin (08/07/2013) [-]
you're not really saying why its bad so i am going to stop talking to you
User avatar #139 to #137 - uhidk (08/07/2013) [-]
and you haven't told me how it's good.

i mean, if you want to pussy out because you know you're wrong, that's fine. just don't lie about it.
User avatar #143 to #139 - PedoBearsAcomin (08/07/2013) [-]
its an opinion you ignorant **** , it is my favorite game of all time, i couldnt really give a **** if some random keeyboard warrior doesnt like it. I have no need to argue.
User avatar #144 to #143 - uhidk (08/07/2013) [-]
so you're gonna get mad at me for not explaining why it sucks...even though you're not explaining why it's good. okay.
User avatar #145 to #144 - PedoBearsAcomin (08/07/2013) [-]
There is just no point, you dont like it. Nothing i can really say. For me it is an amazing world, great unique quests, really engaging and basically fun as **** . But saying all that was pointless because you disagree
User avatar #146 to #145 - uhidk (08/07/2013) [-]
alright, cool.
#307 to #146 - Ken M (08/13/2013) [-]
His opinion is an opinion. What makes him right, and you wrong, is that he isn't trying to pass off his opinion as fact.

The difference is, he has an opinion, and you're a overzealous asshole.

And he's right, there really is no point in telling you (even though he did - where's YOUR motivation behind your opinion?). Because ontop of being an asshole, you're also a closeminded retard.

Why don't you let this ridiculously late comment sink into your folds of fat, and take your time to respond. I'll be long gone by then.
User avatar #308 to #307 - uhidk (08/13/2013) [-]
lol okay.

Mods. You can get mods that make archery and magic on par with mellee combat.
#177 to #116 - forahilarm (08/07/2013) [-]
The thing is, in my opinion, you shouldn't have to mod the game to balance things. The game ought to be balanced. The mods should offer new features, not fix old ones.

Time to go play Mount and Blade: Warband
User avatar #96 to #66 - ekseevi **User deleted account** (08/07/2013) [-]
Know that feel. Even when I play on Legendary Difficulty my Alchemy Archers one hits everything (And 5 sec paralyse if they don't)

Enchanting, Alchemy is way to op :S

But try Morowind. It's awesome.

Magic is under powered?

Idk how many times my guy has been blown to smithereens by fire mages
User avatar #312 to #91 - anygoodnames (08/27/2013) [-]
Fire? Frost and shock have been up my ass. More so shock for some reason.
#313 to #312 - BroadSword ONLINE (08/27/2013) [-]
You're a bit late. Frost is the easiest to deal with, but yea lightning is a hass too

Turn up the difficulty. You can make it as difficult as dark souls or even worse. On max difficulty in oblivion, it takes 15 minutes to punch a standard shopkeeper to death. You should also role play. If certain routes are under powered, why play those routes. There are 300+ hours of gameplay, but having a character op as **** will make it boring.
User avatar #84 to #83 - ciarancrashy (08/07/2013) [-]
*why not play those routes

Damn typos.

***** play oblivion, bandits actualy have armor, and the arena, god the arena, and the character were awsome, aaaaaaaaaaand sheogorath wans't just something that gave you the wabajack, which he don't, he's a pretty chill dude.
#93 to #82 - bigredtomato (08/07/2013) [-]
I agree on all things, only the arena was not that hard, yet amazingly fun to do.
Also, I do not know if you got the shivering isles add on for it, but there you see more of sheogorath and all in all, he's mentally disturbed, crazy, but as you said: a really chill dude.
User avatar #104 to #93 - guiguito ONLINE (08/07/2013) [-]
someone who skips rope with entrails is a pretty chill dude on my list, and the arena was the single most hard thing in the whole game.
#299 to #104 - bigredtomato (08/08/2013) [-]
Bows or magic (or both), stand on a ledge at the edge of the arena (this required high acrobatics, otherwise you just can't get there) then casually kill them all one by one.

note: when there are ranged or magic opponents, kill those off first, heal yourself up then continue with the rest
User avatar #300 to #299 - guiguito ONLINE (08/08/2013) [-]
i know what you are talking about, and that's a exploit.

Bethesda's best move with Skyrim was to make it incredibly mod-friendly. The game is pretty much made to handle as many mods and tweaking as possible at once. Check out this site for a list of the greatest mods if you play on PC, everything from complete overhauls to make the game feel new to minor changes to mechanics:


Trust me, I've gotten bored of Skyrim several times but I always come back to it with joy and excitement with a new set of mods.

Magic was horribly overpowered, with enchanting i got 100 % mana reduced on destruction spells. I could spam as many destructions spells as i just wanted. It ripped through everything from dragons to draugir to bandits.
User avatar #74 to #66 - Jameshaich (08/07/2013) [-]
> Archery Underpowered.

Sneak + Archery is OP as ****
#68 to #66 - Blasphemer (08/07/2013) [-]
Magic, yes, very underpowered, but archery, sneak and 1 shot kill dragons... Only thing is, if you get into close combat, **** you buddy
User avatar #67 to #66 - gitanisme (08/07/2013) [-]
Try morrowind.
