    Yes, the world is beautifull, I admit it. But it's not enough to spend hundreds of hours in it.

    About f2p, true that, Korea is the one that started this, but Japan makes fun of anything outside, even the Korean games. My gf is studying japan on eastern culture studies as her specialisation and she told me that they have a bunch of words to describe our games in funny way.

    I agree with everything above both dark and demons souls not get repetitive on the exception of blight town best game ive ever played. syrim is nice to walk around but almost all the enemies are the same and the combat is boring and kingdoms of amular is the biggest copyright I every seen its fable/god of war/and the elder scrolls
    but I wish Bethesda would go back to making good games like morrowind and fallout 3

    In my opinion a beautiful game is useless is there's *** all in it.

    I get games to play them not to stare at imaginary scenery, can go for a drive in the country if i wanna sight see.

    It's more than trees and grass, though. It's monolithic structures, caves with bioluminescent plants covering the walls, sulfur pits with mammoths and giants roaming around and the list goes on. I seriously can not count how many times it made me stop, look around and say "wow". The world is seriously a piece of high visual art. I got lucky and only experienced hilarious bugs, so my experience wasn't tarnished much.

    Don't get me wrong it lacked in some areas and could be improved. Was it game of the year? Not to me. Top 5? Definitely.

    So your saying dark souls and demon souls doesn't get repetitive?

    This is more of an off-topic thread, moving it there.

    I haven't had as much fun with a console game since Symphony of the Night for PSOne. DkS certainly gets my support when anyone gushes about how awesome it is. I don't think that Dark Souls being awesome has to mean that any other game sucks in comparison though.

Where are they now? Making your own magic in Morrowind? Where is it? Where is school of mysticism. Look at the weapon choice in Morrowind comparable to DkS. Where is it in Skyrim? WTF?? How can it be bigger?? sword/mace/axe/dagger/bow - iron/steel/dwarven/orcish/ebony/glass/daedric... Where the *** is complicity in this? They made Elder Scrolls so retarded that you can compare it to Assassin's creed **** or other boring stuff like prototype. Why that moron Todd Howard said in every review that they achieved more stuff than in earlier games? He lied! And that's how Skyrim got it's reviews - media gets paid, game gets laid.

    Sry, but I had to let it out of me :'(
    i agree with a lot of that. email todd howard and bethesda, they probably wont listen but they do respond and will justify the choices they made.

    Oh come on. I posted a problem thread on their official Skyrim support forum. I couldn't run Skyrim in widescreen @_@ on 2 TV's supporting HD Ready (SKyrim's native resolution is 720p). I've got no answer for 2 months so I solved the problem myself. I bought third TV with full HD support so now Skyrim runs in HD ready properly on it ... just a big lol was on my face but I don't need it now since I don't like it anymore.

    O.K. Let's keep calm. I posted this in all innocence thinking people would be thrilled that Dark Souls, which is kind of a niche game let's be honest, has broken through all the commercial hype for the other big hitters of 2011 and beaten them all. I think that's magic. Modern Warfare, Battlefield 3, Batman, Uncharted, Skyward Sword, Skyrim, Portal; these were huge games last year with the clout of big names behind them. I think it's a massive achievement. I really don't understand why people have made this post an excuse for slagging off Skyrim. I've been playing Skyrim. Yes it has it's faults but I'll be playing it some more when (when) Dark Souls has finished with me. Just for the record the top three were 1. Dark Souls 2. Skyrim 3. Portal.

    That proves you've got yourself into this huge hype around a really bad game. Those who don't understand where the bad side of Skyrim is, they don't have much to say about Elder Scrolls, and for sure didn't play Morrowind.

    :shock: Can we limit the skyrim bashing much? I'm a fan of both games and think they're both great, one with a couple more bugs than the other lol... but dark souls wasnt bug perfect for sure, and skyrim is bound to have more just because it bigger. Although some of the bugs were just ridiculous...

    Anyway... http://gotypicks.blogspot.co.nz/



    And im glad to see that the DLC pack MW3 is at the bottom silly

    I just hate the way people still acclaim it as much as they have when there are game breaking bugs in it...

    It's like you're rating a TV at 5 stars when things don't work for it constantly and after 50 hours just stops working, or if you give a restaurant michelin stars when you find bugs in the soup and dirty cutlery on the table..

    It's good, but not as amazing as has been said by the media.

    and im disappointed on your list Revan at the lack of Dark Souls, it makes me sad sad though many of the games on the list deserve recognition.

    @venomblader. I have played Morrowind and it was and is a great game BUT my post was not about Morrowind nor, more particularly, Skyrim. It was about Dark Souls winning a game of the year award. I did not expect this thread to degenerate into a Skyrim bashing fest and the fact that it has saddens me. If I had my way the people responsible would be restricted to playing 'Pong' for a week. Maybe a few hours playing with only two dashes and a dot would make them appreciate what they have but somehow I doubt it.

    OMFG... what is wrong w/ these reviewers? Did they all stop 20 hours in and call it a day? Skyrim is a HUGE disappointment... but hey, it's got DRAGONS!!!
