The problem with Skyrim is that it's a nice game for casual players but once you spend more than 20 hours in it you've seen everything and you realize how bland the game really is

That is going completely off topic but I can't help myself, I heavily disagree with this. I've got 150 hours clocked on Skyrim and I've definitely not seen everything.

Not really. I've played the game for days, weeks, months even. There's just so many quests to complete and so much to explore.

I hated, HATED, HATED dugeons and dwemer ruins. exactly the same sh*t, over and over again. Also the interiors,
generic. And the characters! oh damn, Uninteresting character: (says in a gruffy tone) "Gray-mane or Battleborn?!" *Says Battleborn* *One second later...* "You've been a good friend for me, that means something. smile.gif "

Coming from someone who's a Skyrim addict with 200 hours clocked in. (I bought it 4 months ago for god's sake...and didn't have alot of "free tyme")

Skyrim may look great, but the details aren't really that great as you can find most things repeated all over the map. Almost every dungeon uses the same textures, and there are huge open spaces that are generally unused. You may never actually see "everything", but once you've logged a good amount of hours you know exactly what kind of things you are going to see from then on out. At first it seems like there's a diverse ecosystem, but as you progress you find there's really only a handful of different creatures in Skyrim. GTAV on the other hand looks as though you'd be hard pressed to find 2 of the exact same building, which is pretty epic considering the scale.

I think Skyrim is to GTA IV what Oblivion is to GTA III:San Andreas.

The Next Elder Scrolls game is going to be the GTA V of Elder Scrolls.

The next Elder Scrolls is going to be a MMO so it can go f*ck itself. Seriously pissed off about this too, it had better be good but I bet it'll be sh*t.

OT - I agree, they are the best. Along with Gearbox. Both games have a huge amount of Detail except V will have less bugs.

Still people gonna mod the hell out of gta v when it comes to pc

I think that's an unfair statement. The only reason a lot of people say that Skyrim requires mods to be good is because the modding community got a lot of praise and attention for what they did with the game. Is Skyrim better with mods? Well yes mods add variety as they do with any game. Does Skyrim need mods to be good? Totally not, many players of the vanilla version have well over 500 hours of gameplay put into it, including me.

More on topic though I don't think you should compare Skyrim to V its just not a good thing to do in my opinion, one is a nearly impossibly massive (for this gen. Not that V isn't huge) game where you can interact with every item in the game, another is a beautiful polished game with tons of features and pretty great graphics.

I'm only about 1/8th of the way through Skyrim at the moment & while there is a lot to explore, it doesn't take long to spot repeating textures, unfinished areas of the map (floating rocks etc) & looped dialogue. Still a great game when compared to most others, but not when compared to GTA IV or V.

Not to mention the constant bugs, glitches & screen freezes. Bethesda need to go back to the drawing board & create a stable game engine for next gen (I'm sure they already have). I want Fallout 4 to be a stress free gaming experience.

He said looks as though.. There is no source, his going off pictures, trailers and gameplay his already seen.

Fair enough spooge, but I wanna know what he has seen to suggest that buildings won't be heavily recurring.

GTA IV was just as bad as skyrim for repeating textures.

People in here seem to be missing the point anyway, me included.

He's discussing the level of detail, now comparing skyrim to any GTA's I'd say that skyrim takes the cake.

Think about it detail wise: the amount of items that are hand placed through every single dungeon, and around the countryside, the concealed dungeon entrances etc.

Yeah it is apples and oranges as skyrim was designed to be explored on foot from a first person perspective rather than speeding a car through it all, and we can't compare it to V yet but I doubt that V will be more immersive than skyrim. Not dissing V (before I get jumped on), just discussing it along the terms that OP put it in. V will still be more fun wink.gif

I agree! I probably clocked in 300-400 hours into Skyrim! I love Skyrim, but I think I will have more fun with GTA V

I'm pretty sure gta v gonna have repeating textures too, just like skyrim and gta IV had them. For example: U could see the "seams" in the streets in gta IV

Apples and Oranges.

One is a Fantasy RPG, while the other game is a modern Action Sandbox game.

The open world is about the only thing you can compare, since GTAV isn't out yet my guess would be that Bethesda's world is more alive and contains more detail.

Edit for people saying all you can do is kill..

Main, Side and Miscelanious Quests. (Infinite Radiant quests) (kill things)
Join a guilds (kill things)
Random Events (mostly kill things)
Harvest Materials for crafting (to kill things with mostly)
Explore Dungeons (kill things)
Find little towns and villages, help them, Barter etc. (buy and sell, or kill things)


Skyrim is literaly limitless, everything is included that the most RP heavy GTA player wants... it is just a different genre and doesn't appeal to everyone.

Changed your post , you made it sound too good so I have made some accurate corrections smile.gif

See my previous post on what makes an open world so much more varied.

Well well.. thats debatable..

One could argue all you do in GTA bar the customization and races has to do with killing to following your logic.. because with the money you get we buy weapons to kill right?

Now i mean if you truly want to mention all you can do in skyrim i'd say no not everything has to do with killing, it has to do with the playstyle of the person.

I know we're all big GTA fans.. right otherwise we wouldn't be here, but saying Skyrim has an inferior amount of activities or they all have to do with killing is something i highly doubt, and as said above would attribute to your playstyle.

I mean if we're summing up everything you can do in skyrim (Copied parts of this list from a skyrim wiki);

Alchemy (Create potions and poisons)
Building (Build your own homestead - requires a 4 dollar DLC)
Cooking (Create meals that give unique effects) Especially the HF DLC adds some effects that are fairly useful.
Enchant (Enchant Weapons, Armor, Clothing and jewelry with unique bonusses.
Explore
Hunt
Collect (Plants, Mushrooms, Ores, Books, Dragon shouts etc.)
Craft (Armors, Building materials and jewelry)
Thievery (Lockpicking/Pickpocketing/burglary)
Jobs (Minor moneymaking activities such as; Woodcutting, Mining for a mine boss or harvesting crops)

And just the fact that the world has such a back story and every NPC is part of it, and most have their own story.. and are available for a dialogue adds immense depth to it aswell.

And saying all missions, quests and guilds are all about killing is far from accurate.. thats almost the same as saying GTA is only about stealing cars.. come on now.

I love GTA V, but discrediting Skyrim just because its somewhat aged now or because we're all hyped up for GTA is wrong, i have hundreds of hours in that game like many other players that enjoy RPGs, its a good game and without the play style of a 12 year old there is loads more to do than kill.

Why can't I ride dragons in Skyrim? I mean, I'm the Dragonborn & I can't even ride the things. Or get them to follow me, so I can control them.

Disclaimer: I've only just started the game, so apologies if you can actually do either of the above.

@theomenofficial
Good to know, but that should've been in the main game.

Play the Dragonborn DLC.
You can.

The Skyrim Legendary Edition is 25, you can get it if you want, it has all the DLC.

This is a GTA forum so there is obvious bias. As for detail I think they will be on par with each other. Which would I prefer to play? .... GTA V

I tried so hard to enjoy Skyrim..

The first major flaw is the gameplay. If you want to make a melee character (a barbarian type) boy youll be in trouble. The hack ans slash just doenst work anymore...really Bethesda? after so many criticism about Oblivion hack and slash you couldnt even improve that? not to mention the buggy PS3 edition...

See my previous post on what makes an open world so much more varied.

You have no clue what you are talking about all. You have clearly never played Skyrim so why do you continute to talk about it? It is a massively varied game and is a hell of a lot more than just killing things.

Its possible to go through the entire main story killing almost nothing at all. There are many side quests within Skyrim that involve no killing whatsoever.

I could go on and on about all the stuff there is to do in Skyrim and how varied a game it is but you are too closed minded so I'm not going to bother.


Anyway, Skyrim is an awesome game that is totally different in style to GTA, its silly to compare them
