      coming from Elden Ring, the combat is just so dull aswell as the story and enemy variety. its fun to explore the open world but any cave or fortress just feels like collecting potions and gems and kill bandits for no reason

          Thats not true. There is unique loot like the daedric artifacts.
          The problem is these divine weapons and armor are objectively worse than the crap you can craft and enchant yourself and they just become things to decorate player housing with.

        Dungeons are way more rewarding than any shit I ever got from exploring in Elden Ring. The worst Skyrim dungeon is twice as good as any imp-filled catacomb. Combat is way better than "Wait for them to attack then jump-heavy." The fromsoft brainrot is real.

          Apparently you can, but only on PC. Open the command console ingame and set killmove 1 to 0. All these years I never knew. I used to fuck around with them in Oblivion but in Skyrim I didn't care cause it wasn't as interesting since the spells were locked to the limited spell list you're forced down since spell crafting was cut. Or just get a mod that forces it off from the start.

      How do you roleplay in Skyrim? The options seem so limited

        How do you roleplay in D&D? The DM (at least a good one) never presents you with a telegraphed "choose option A for storyline A, choose option B for storyline B". Instead, the story mostly unfolds organically through immersing yourself in the world and doing things you think your character would do. Right at the start, think about what your character's ultimate goal is: master of all magics, thief who becomes richer than Midas, greatest swordsman who ever lived, mercenary who retires to a farm home, etc. Maybe color it with preferences and prejudices. How do they decide how to treat other characters around them? What moral code do they live by?

        Sure the game's not literally going to respond to each and every one with custom NPC responses or whatever, but the sim allows you to play that way. Stream your playthrough if you really need an audience to respond to your accomplishments.

        You act according to the values of your character.
        Do you kill innocents?
        Do you kill at all?
        Do you trap human souls in gems?
        Do you practice magic or see it as an abomination?
        Do you steal things?
        Do you loot the corpses of your enemies or is it beneath you?
        Do you treat everyone equally or are you more willing to hurt or steal from an elf or a half-beast?
        What faction do you support and why?
        Do you even want to go tell the jarl about this dragon attack? Maybe you just want to become an hermit in the woods and focus on alchemy.

        The opportunities for roleplay are everywhere, they're just not served to you through a menu with boxes to check. You need to use your imagination.

        I don't lie, installing survival mods to make travelling harder was a good choice, as well as disabling quicktravel in favor of teleportation spells, the magic progression system I installed based on studying and practice was really cool, new spells, shouts, raising a whole mage tower for myself to do cool shenanigans and kidnap people was fun, as well as dragonriding, flying around with dragon aspect, better and deadlier artifacts, etc.

        All in all the sandbox became really good and was only dragged down by the dungeons being linear as fuck and the story being shit until you reach Solstheim.

          Making travel harder can make a world of difference, but requires more modding than a lot of people think. Including bethesda. The anniversary edition launched with a bare bones survival mode. You get debuffed for not eating, drinking and sleeping and no fast travel. No fast travel in vanilla skyrim sucks so much ass, its unreal. The world is laid out in a way that requires players to fast travel to a place with a general store after every dungeon. Mods like bandolier solve this perfectly and stylishly, but without that you basically have to leave half the loot you find so that you can trudge to a vendor that will buy anything and those are only in the main cities. Without a mod like immersive travellers or something to improve small villages, you start to see all the seams of the map layout. There are no trade routes, no implied economy. Theres just the main holds, dungeons that exist only to be raided by the player and these little groups of three or four houses that the npcs insist on calling "villages". The immersion of being in a living world falls completely apart. 90% of the things that make skyrim feel alive are in places like solitude and windrun.

        The problem is you're trying to play Skyrim like Skyrim. One of the most fun playthroughs I've had of Skyrim is adding a bunch of magic mods and playing a glass cannon character. Baseline HP but a bunch of mana, heavy focus on summons and necromancy with unlimited permeant summons. Teleport skill to evade enemies. A little creativity goes a long way, the sandbox nature of mods is what makes it all fun.

        Pic related, a screenshot I took of some of my summons from that playthrough.

      Books are great. Most aren’t even that long, maybe 5 minutes or so. My favorites and suggestions for newbies wanting to get into the lore are “On Oblivion” and “The Doors to Oblivion”. A sort of duology by two different authors (the latter from the apprentice of the former) and adds both clarification and wonder on how Oblivion works.

        nah, the way loot works basically means dungeons are worthless in skyrim and they are very repetitive and poorly designed anyways. you are severely crippling your potential enjoyment of the game by entering caves. you will not miss a single unique dungeon or quest if you avoid random dungeons entirely. the only good random dungeons are not presented as caves.

          not true. theres a handful of dungeons that are actually unique and not tied to a specific quest. one that comes to mind is the "fake" draugr dungeon thats actually run by a necromancer trapping adventurers looking for loot. not only is the premise unique, but the dungeon itself is way more complex than probably any other draugr dungeon and uses level pieces i dont think ive seen anywhere else.

        Welcome to Bethesda post Oblivion where it becomes cheaper and cheaper in development and you'll see thing like small shelves on a desk are desks made smaller along with the textures or 3 tier shelf purposefully clipped in the ground to make it 2 despite the fact the floor is uneven thus breaking the illusion they were trying to convey.

          People who can't get past copy-paste design must hate games, because asset economy is literally the foundation that all games are based on. Pretty much the only games that don't extensively rely on it are movie games that are more so about cinematic experience than gameplay design.

            I'm not saying they need to make 100% unique items, but stuff like that just comes off as lazy. Any bar outside of a gated city is the same one. A little variety would be nice.

    I played vanilla skyrim frim beginning to end and found it enjoyable but never bothered to install mods. Can you actually fuck any npc or follower and see dicks and boobs with some of them?

    Do as others say and play modded. The game has aged considerably, the balance is very poor, and many mechanics are really boring to get.
    Which mods?

      You've pretty much got to invest in the dual cast and stagger perks if you want to be a destruction mage.
      Then you can just keep enemies stunlocked while you chip away at them.
      And there are always your conjured weapons.

      I would get a magic mod, something simple like magickaplus will give you damage scaling on your spells when you level magicka.

      Destruction and Alteration suffer heavily in base Skyrim. Restoration and Conjuring don't need much help, but Des and Alt need mods.

      Funny, on the games release and years afterward it was rightly lampooned as being the most braindead RPG ever created. It's simplification of the genre is by far the most despised example in all of video game history. It was the Call of Duty of RPGs, with a dragon in the first five minutes, then again in another five minutes, constant magic explosions and fire streams coming out of your hand basically the entire game, funny to see people defend it as being a "slow, thoughtful RPG"

        you havent played rpgs from before or jus tplayed the le harcore rpgs released before it.

        what is bad about that?
        >constant magic explosions and fire streams coming out of your hand basically the entire game
        why would that be bad even if it happened, not every character is a mage.

        I hope it didn't break USSEP too bad, because I'm still running an old version from before they decided to make CCSurvival Mode mandatory. If they seriously broke USSEP, forcing me to update, then I'm getting rid of USSEP, it's becoming more of a pain in the ass than it's worth.

    Honestly the base game is mediocre. Maybe worth for one playthrough. What keeps everyone coming back is mods. If you know what you're doing you can customize Skyrim into anything you want with mods. Infinite potential and possibility. That's the real draw of the game for me and what keeps me coming back over a decade years later. I'm running almost 900 mods and while I do get the occasional crash it's very stable. Those 900 mods have transformed the game into my ideal fantasy life simulator. I just hit 50 hours on a new save and I'm having a blast.

    I remember playing this game for the first time. I'd bought it but put it off because I was too busy playing Modern Warfare 3 and Gears 3 and other things. I think one night I thought I'd turn it on at about 10:30, and was still playing it at like 3am in the morning. Great time.
    Looking back though, the game is alright, it was much better than Oblivion in terms of levelling and the stuff you could do. However, after sinking about 70-80 hours into it I got bored, never finished the main questline. Think I got up to the part where I went to some Sky Temple and dropped it shortly after.

          story is the same no matter who you pick, if you pick vampires you get the added quest of killing all the dawnguard, that's like the only difference

    The Amorous mod makes the Dragonborn a character who cucks a lot of people and have more than multiple 'lover's because of it. But since I installed that mod a while ago, it would seem that it would break the saved game if I were to remove it.

      Small indie studio please understand I would've reworked the Bard's College as the de-facto Thieves Guild questline, since generic "guild" factions are shit fantasy writing compared to diegetic factions like Winterhold and the Companions.
