    It's not even a slight difference. It's a massive difference.

    Take a look here, to see for yourself: http://www.gamezone.com/editorials/t...on-to-oblivion

    All pre-release footage was from Xbox gameplay, so that should give you an idea as well.
    Yeah, I think I should change my opinion. I kind of forgot how Oblivion looks tbh.

    Maybe I'm just making the comparison because they have a similar design/art style.

    So am I the only who was tempted to recreate the Nord in the trailers? My dude is blonde with warpaint, but he's basically the same concept. I've been wanting to create a Norse hero in a game for a long time, but few have given me the opportunity like this.

    So far though, I'm undecided on twohanded or sword and shield.

    Yeah, I didn't realise just how huge a leap it was myself until I went back and played it just getting into Skyrim.

    Them faces... oh god...

    To bad, I sort of just went with Imperial, probably could of played as a Nord if I wanted to. Went with sword and shield like I always do. 2H feels too slow for me.

    I thought it was slow at first, but once I got in those Nord ruins, I equipped a greatsword and liked it. I'm killing things pretty fast. It feels realistic actually. It'll drop the average minion in one or two hits.

    I had a lot of false starts and at first just followed that Imperial guard in the intro. This playthrough I followed the Stormcloak guy. I wonder if this makes a significant difference as time goes on.

    I know you can be a Nord and still follow Imperials. I guess it comes down to whether or not you revere Talos.

    I'm an imperial too. In my first file, I was a Breton, but I became dissatisfied with how I was doing (like I often do in RPGs), so I created a new data (Khajiit, actually, but again, I didn't like how I was doing), and then I chose imperial just to see what the soldier at Helgen would say as your race-specific thing, and I decided to keep playing as that character. I also go with sword and shield (as my Breton, though, I dual-wielded magic and it was awesome - but very inaccurate and I often ended up hitting guards or other friendly npcs, causing my dissatisfaction with the file).

    I don't think it does. I'm pretty sure the main story doesn't change at all (ever), and I'm pretty sure you can always join either the Imperial Legion or the Stormcloaks.

    As long as you don't pick a side, it shouldn't affect the main storyline.

    However, if you are doing the Civil War Quests, like me, it DOES effect the main storyline. At least, from what I have been reading.

    I'm slowly taking sides, but not quite yet. Just started helping some Greymanes, but not Stormcloaks.

    Also, my companion Lydia is hot. Why can't I marry her? I don't even want to take her anywhere now, to prevent her from dying. lol

    *mock horrified gasp* How can you forget Neverwinter Nights and its DLCs?

    I don't think the games that the 2 companies produce are directly comparable at all. While Bioware games do have more replayability than most RPGs, it is not as massively free-form as the Elder Scroll series. I prefer Bioware but that is mostly due to my days of playing AD&D and reading Forgotten Realms stuff in my youth.

    I've always been a critic of Bethesda, but this game is the shit. It doesn't sacrifice the strength of the previous games, but they've done a better job at telling a story here. Maybe that's Fallout's influence. The Protagonist (you) matters more than just the sum of your random actions and wanderings. The whole Dragonborn thing is cool as hell.
