Bought this as my alternative to Fifa game.....Wow.

Just amazing, spent an hour just staring at different mods.....and i could've spent days just doing that tbh.


So so much content just in the vanilla game, let alone the multiples new land masses and quests created by modders.

Very enjoyable.

    I disagree.

    Storywise, 100% agree, but for those using mods for the first time, they will much prefer Skyrim imo.

    Yeah played this way back in 2010 and sank hours into it. I would advise not to become a vampire on it. Kind of ruined the game for me.

    Or was that oblivion?

    It's a great game, I picked it up just before Christmas and literally lived on it for about a week. Haven't played it in months though, need to pick it back up.

    No matter how tempted you get don't download the cheat mods. Ruins the game instantly, not only in enjoyment, but also you level trees get messed up.

    There's a survival mod which is cool, you can freeze to death and stuff unless you set up camp. Adds a nice extra element to the game.

    you can do that in both....

    Fortunately i've downloaded a mod to take care of that.

    Alternatively there are mods which add way more depth to being a vampire. Vampire specific perks etc.

    @COACH Witcher 3 is better than Skyrim imo. But I guess that's completely down to personal preference. I just like one fix character (with a fixed look, race and stuff) better, because I feel like the developers can concentrate on developing his personality and story more then.

    You should play Fallout 3/ New Vegas if you haven't already. Stay away from Fallout 4 tho, it's garbage

    For me, Skyrim and the Witcher are totally different games.

    Witcher is story driven, Skyrim is intended to be more of a sandbox where you can do what you please.


    Witcher 3 is probably my favorite game of all time (I admit to not playing the others). The story and lore is just incredible, it has all the same storytelling ability as a great movie imo.

    I'd say that Skyrim is more 'casual friendly' though, and has far more replayability.

    Yeah, you can play Skyrim 300 times and then install Enderal and get a whole new game out of it.

    I know that they are totally different games, but if I had to choose one it would still be the Witcher.

    If i had to choose 1 I could only play once, it'd be Witcher.

    If i had to choose 1 i'd have to play forever, it'd be Skyrim.

    That's what I hated about it, like they promoted the base building and stuff as some great feature but I didn't feel the need/ desire to do it at all. It actually felt like a nuisance when they actually forced you to do it. Idk I just think the atmosphere of New Vegas was Superb, the soundtracks and everything added a nice touch. It's probably my favorite single player game of all time

    Should see Skyrim modded out on PC. This is what mine looked like a few years ago, I haven't messed with it in a bit but can improve it. It's not even close to the remaster in terms of content and quality.

    Morrowind was still the greatest Bethesda game, followed by Skyrim then Fallout 3, Fallout 4, Oblivion.
