Holy shit I finally put Skyrim to bed. I started a playthrough a couple of years ago and just got bored once I hit around level 30. The impact perk for destruction spells trivializes a lot of the base game content. Though I was only playing on normal, but hey. I'm not playing a good old fashioned CRPG for the challenge. Gimme dat lore and immersion. Decided it was time to clear it off the backlog. Crazy enough, this is the first Elder Scrolls game I've finished since Arena. I played a lot of Daggerfall and Oblivion but never finished them. I have yet to play Morrowind, which I know is a cardinal sin. Maybe one day.
Anyway, here are a couple of pics of my party.
My PC is on the left in her tricked out dragonscale armor (top tier enchants, etc). Meet Brianna, Breton sorcerer - the Last Dragonborn. With her is her trusty and loyal companion Inigo in the dragonbone armor. And Lydia I guess....looking appropriately disinterested.
Here's a shot of Brianna on her spooky horse during the Dawnguard DLC.
Loved the game for the most part. Besides getting bored, I think I quit because the scenery was just fucking drab, overall. I'm not very fond of winter in general, and since the game takes place in the northern most province of Tamriel, the entire game takes place in a grey, snowy, soggy backdrop. Kind of a bummer, but a good game to play during winter IRL I guess. I much preferred the more vibrant and wooded landscapes of Cyrodiil in Oblivion. I also find Ayleid Ruins far more interesting than Nordic Tombs filled with Draugr. Main questlines were ok, but the DLC was pretty great. The game has been out for a long time now, but if you haven't played it and are a fan of the ES series, it's good and worth the time. I spent ~125 hours finishing all the main questlines in the base game (Companions, College of Winterhold, Bard's College, Civil War, Thieves Guild, Dark Brotherhood, main quest), most of the daedric quests, some regional major storylines, and all of the DLC.
Put some South in yer mouth.
