Can't get into Skyrim

I tried, Ganker. this game is just plain bad and boring. I tried everything to have fun in this boring slop, from graphics mods, immersive mods, gameplay mods yet still can't see what millions of others saw in this game.
Is it just me? How do I enjoy this game?

    Why do you have to like it? why bother if you're not? You can mod this shit to basically play like a single player second life but it'll still be skyrim

      Ok... is there any critically acclaimed game that actually lives up to the hype and is fun then?

        In short: no to the former, yes to the latter.

        Most critically acclaimed games aren't really masterpieces, they were just influential for their time. The vast majority of GOTY titles are broken, unfinished messes, but they won because of what they accomplished or because they had interesting ideas.

        How old are you? There's many fantastic games, but they don't have the same impact if you're young and can't into older graphics.

      Yeah that's how I would describe Skyrim and how OP's pic appears to me. It's nice to see that people are still updating texture mods to make the graphics look good but god this game is old. I can't imagine playing it now because it's just so outdated at this point. A real lipstick on a pig situation.

        If you want to like what everyone likes and get angsty when you realize the masses actually have shit taste, maybe you should stop being a trend chasing b***h.

            when it comes to that criteria a release is only as old as its most recent introduction to a new audience

    its an early 2010s game. impressive back then, not really impressive today. the only way to enjoy skyrim today is to pump it full of mods, the game has a huge modding library

    I don't like it either. It's jank, the mods fill my computer with viruses, the fan mods have reddit writing, the music is generic beyond belief, the world is ugly, the loading screens waste your time, and you don't grow as a person from playing it

    Also I got attacked by 3 dragons today which us gay

      how does one make dragon fights interesting? 90% of the fight is them flying away while the dragonborn keeps yelling and shaking his fist at them.

    You need to download the Wildlander modpack which lets you bypass the main story entirely and makes the game infinitely more interesting with much more scope for actual roleplaying. Ofc there are better mod combinations, by Wildlander is by far the quickest and most reliable way to get a few hundred mods working together and be stable. Base Skyrim is shit and always has been shit.

    skyrim is a modding sandbox and I have more fun modding the game than playing it.

    I remember I unboxed an unusual hat in TF2 when this game came out and traded it for Skyrim. Beat the game and then the game got removed from my account 2 weeks later because the person who bought it as a gift used a stolen credit card (completely bullshit by the way, they still kept my hat). Never really had a desire to play it again though, I bought it on my PS4 when it was like $15 or some shit and got 1/4 of the way through and got bored.

    It was fun when I first played it though, but that was because it was crazy hyped and I was 16.

    >How do I enjoy this game?
    I can help.

    Right now, vanilla Skyrim is just a barren world where nothing happens. You can't even say events revolve around you because even after quests are over morning changes.

    Start by getting the mod that converts all bandit camps into civil war camps.
    Next look for the total war conversion mod. Now the roads will be patrolled by both sides and regularly engage in skirmishes across the map at all times. (Warning: you will need a good PC for this)

    Now onto Cosmetic
    Get the medieval armor overhaul so that stormcloaks and Imperials look properly equipped.
    Get a few road overhauls
    Change the environment by turning whiterun into a great forest
    Increase the size of all trees to make the world seem more imposing

    Don't try to solve the civil war right away. Pick a side, and try to complete some user made quests. If you're in enemy territory you need to be undercover and stay off the roads to avoid a fight.

    This brings Skyrim closer to new Vegas. Now the world is far more dynamic, and dangerous. I'm not trying to gas myself up, this actually makes the game very fun, almost like it's how it's intended to be.

      civil war mods are so heavily scripted that they make the game modding unfriendly for other mods.

        Take it from me. Don't go into modding thinking you can do everything on one save file.

        Best way to optimize and stabilize is to make a mod profile that specializes in a single thing you want, and only have 1 playthrough with that.
        So 1 coom pack
        Another for hardcore fighting realism
        Another for a focus on magic
        Another for vampire roleplay
        Etc etc
        Trying to balance 400 mods and accomodate playstyles you aren't focused on will never work. Have an idea of what playstyle you're going for, mod accordingly and go from there. You don't need a magic overhaul if you're playing a thief.

        I recommend a civil war overhaul because although it's script heavy, it ends up being the best bang for your buck. It completely overhauls the world by making everywhere dangerous and unique.

          that's okay but the civil war mods are so unstable that even mod creators recommend you to save often. I don't think it would be an enjoyable experience if the mods are so buggy.

    Its a "you had to be there" thing and even then it sucked dick, but almost nothing does what it does, so if you want a game that is Skyrim, Skyrim is the game youll want, if you want anything that does anything better, it comes at the cost of something else which will decisively make it not "a game that is Skyrim" Its like New Vegas, it frickin sucks, but there isnt a better New Vegas
