    How fucking high are you guys when you played these things? Holy fucking boring, riding a horse around for-fucking-ever and doing fucking nothing, grind grind grind, like what the fuck, gimme something with some legit mechanics or a reasonably high-skill cap. Shit games.

    lol what a can.

    Walking around in those games is like walking through a piece of art you plebeian. Those worlds practically live and breath.
    You don't have to grind shit either.

    I agree with Skyrim

    Bland, shallow characters and quests, crap guilds (except for the thieves guild), horrible combat (even worse than Oblivion), Dawnguard dlc didn't have enough quests/main quest was to short, etc.

    One of the few great things I have to give Skyrim is replay value. Easy to restart and make a different playthough, but thats its main high point imo.

    No they are not, actually they are on the top of their genre and people await their sequels, are both very well done and have alot of replay value, also on Red dead redemption is such an awesome game in a great setting it makes it all cooler

    @Roca you dont know shit

    For the most part, I agree.

    I've only played through RDR once but found the world and gameplay very shallow for a Rockstar game.

    With Skyrim, the world is beautiful and it's really fun to level up.... but once you level up to become a badass it becomes very boring.

    My biggest complaint about it, is the combat is the exact same as it was in Oblivion - block until your enemy strikes, and counter attack for maximum damage.

    PC mods deepen the base gameplay and increase the difficulty, but as I said before, once you become a badass those factors are negated.

    'But you can turn up the difficulty at any time!' Then what's the point of leveling up and getting the best armor and weapons?

    And I second the statement the guilds are weak and short.

    Skyrim is very good when modded to the utter maximum. If it ain't got flying body parts and jiggly boobs I want nothing of it.

    Damn, I've practically turned it into Game of Thrones. Shame. Shame. Shame.

    Just not my type of games, I have way to short an attention span to wander around for hours doing nothing.

    And lol at how 'beautiful' the worlds are. If I wanted to see beautiful scenery I'd go outside. I wanna play a video game not look at a tree.

    Skyrim may be a bit overrated, but Red Dead is one of the GOATs. Skyrim is still a good game in its own right.

    Can thread, imo.

    Skyrim needs to be heavily modded.

    Frostfall, Deadly Dragons, SkyRe, Climates of Tamriel, Deadly Combat, and Interesting NPCs are my recommendations - all available for free at Nexus Mods.

    If you're playing on console; like always, you're SOL.

    EDIT:

    Also, the list of games you like are pretty shitty; so it's a good possibility in conjunction with being right about Vanilla Skyrim being boring, you also have terrible taste.
