One of the things I hated about Skyrim was its absolutely horrible combat. They changed it a little from Oblivion but not much. It was still clunky and felt like you were hitting air. This is the reason I never bought it. Bethesda never improves the f*cking combat. I hated the combat systems in FO:3, NV and Oblivion. Mods and cheats were the only reason I played those games for more than 20 hours. I don't have a good PC so I can't check out Skyrim's mods.

I also hated the repetitive quests. I liked the graphics though, and the exploration was pretty fun.

since this entire thread has turned into Morrowind versus Skyrim, I'll throw in .02 cents...

Skyrim is overrated because without any mods it's extremely mediocre.
I bought Skyrim on release day and played the sh*t out of until I reached about 25 hours played and suddenly it hit me; I literally don't enjoy this game.

the combat is terrible unless you play as a Mage.
and Skyrim wants you to play as a Mage. almost everything is geared towards it. there's more versatility and efficiency as a Mage and the spells just look awesome. but the game also offers to let you play as a 'Rogue' and a 'Warrior' or any hybrid combination. but it's not the same. using the bow/arrow or melee weapons isn't anywhere near as intuitive, effective, or robust (or as cool looking) as the Magic aspect. and that just killed the experience for me because I enjoy melee combat way more than ranged/magic combat.

for a game that looks so beautiful and has so much going on, it's amazing that it can also feel so weak and underdeveloped in an area as important as it's combat system.
trying to play melee is just so boring it hurts. the weapons have no feeling of weight, or impact, or punch. melee fights are just a hodgepodge of swinging back and forth with reckless abandon and no strategy... unless you count exploiting clipping issues as strategy. carrying a shield is useless, for instance.

just terrible.
also Rotipuj is right about the quests. faction and story quests were pretty cool, but every single side quest was basically the same 2 minute dungeon crawl that ended with some powerful evil mage. go here, get that, kill him, come back. very boring, very repetitive side quests.

I never finished Skyrim.
it's currently uninstalled.

Personally I think the Assassins Creed games are overrated as are the Halo games. I haven't played Halo 4 though.

Don't bother buying Halo 4. It was ruined by 343industries.

Agreed. Halo 4 is the only overrated Halo game IMO.
