Dammit I'm sucked into this fucker again. I've pretty much doubled my play time over the last week and a half (girlfriend working nights!! HAHA). I wish I'd had a clearer direction when I started (and now am too deep to bother starting over). I've ended up an archer/thief/armor&weapon making fool, but could be better at all of those if I hadn't squandered about a dozen level up points on some bullshit magic stuff I was experimenting with.
I've decided to join the stormcloaks. I think both the empire and SC's are douchey, but I hate the empire more (Starwar's fault
). I'm also on a mission to find a better house than Whiterun just because.
The only thing I hate about this game is that I don't feel like I'm getting anywhere! I get 10 new quests for every one I finish. Shit, just trying to escort some broad to a town down the road landed me 3 quests from asshats jumping me along the way and having to pass by a mine.
I'm on pc, and I do have to say that it is the most beautiful environment in any game I've seen. The night sky gets me every time.
