Reasons Skyrim does not deserve all the praises (part One)
Weak story: I know some may say the story was pretty well, But I say it was not. Oblivion had a much better story where you had to deal with deadras, and close the oblivion gates. The missions where well designed especially the part where you had to go to the mythic down hideout. The atmosphere of that place was very well. But about Skyrim when you find the hideout of the old blades you just see some dumb rooms, a hall, and a training ground. The best you see there is the Alduin wall, and even after the blades settle there again, the glory of the place is not back. (If there had been something like that) The story is not like ?fight hard for a reason?, but is plain fighting. When you do all the stuff including killing Alduin you just feel like ?Well, the job?s done?, while in oblivion you would feel like ?Who! The job is finally done?. During your quest for save of the world you meet the dumbest people who have no depth. The blades are fighting because they are bind to their oath; The Graybeards are helping you because of their master. The jarls are aiding you because of politics and if you don?t feel like a lone wolf then I am surprised. Your followers, well I don?t need to say much. While in a comparison to Fallout 3 and the mutated guy ?Falk? you can see how silly your followers are. In your journey you can?t make great choices like bringing ?Falk? with you. In fact the story has no point where you can make satisfying choices and build you character?s personality. In fact all other quests are like this. For me killing Alduin was like killing a bird instead of killing a black winged dragon. He was killed so easily in just one battle. And when he died I felt like killing a rat not a dragon.
Combat: Yes, I know. Skyrim is so varied in combat. You can be a mage, two handed sword man, one handed sword man, An archer and so on. But the variety itself does not make the game enjoyable. But the depth does. I mean I can?t enjoy the game being just an archer. I should be everything to enjoy the game. Just look at the magic and how much its depth has been reduced since oblivion. I can?t be a mage and not an archer can I?
Misc: Smiting is new to this game. But Can you smith every sword in the world? Or use every enchantment you like? Horses are the funniest thing because you are the only horseman in this game. No others use Horses, while in oblivion we saw otherwise.
Q: And what is the use of horses? A: Mountain Climbing.
Horses do not have special attitudes. All are the same ?dumb?. You can?t pick every item you see in the world for you home decoration. Even if you could, making them fit in place would be a chore.
Q: Can you camp in jungles? Stay in places where no one has ever explored and chat with your follower(s)?
A: You can?t camp. You can?t chat and you can?t have more than one follower. It is not dragon age people. It is the game of the year, skyrim.
Good use of followers could make the game a great experience. But as I said?oh forget it. Textures are not good. If you say they are then compare Blades armor with dwarven armor. Quests are not deep. If you say they are then compare Darkbrotherhood with Bards?college. Shouts are not good. If you say they are then go shout ?firebreath? on a child and see him/her chilling.(in fact he/she will chill and escape the hell out of there but that?s because you?ve sounded like an Insane man who thinks his shouting actually has some effect.) Swordfights are not fun. If you say they are then compare it with fallout 3 pipefighting. Food is a joke.? Don?t eat food and food will eat you?. Why have they even used this in this game if there is no meaning to it? I say it is an unfinished feature of the game. (Like the rest of the game)
