This game isn't for everyone. It's almost a never-ending game; there are around a hundred missions to complete. Also, you have the option to choose between good or evil. Of course, the main quest is pure good, but the side-quests go both sides. This game is not for players who prefers games like black ops or modern warfare. This game requires patience, a lot of it. The main character is asked to do actions at a certain hour of the game time or sometimes you have to do detective jobs following and asking around ( that happens a lot). The region of Tamriel can be saved at your own pace. You don't have to do the main quest right away, you can do all the side-quest first, or it can be done simultaneously. The game requires the player to decide when and how level up. You choose the skills you want to develop first or which ones are not important to your type of play, but sometimes you have to have the wisdom and patience to not level up until you complete certain quests that will be more easy in low levels rather than doing it at a high level and have to be confronted by high level monsters or well-equipped enemies. Also, in addition to this you have to train your character to raise your abilities or remember not to use those abilities so much keep them at a low level. I compare this game with the pc game Guild Wars. You develop the character the way you want, you raise it the way you want and you play the way you want respecting to the side-quests.
