    So which is the version to get? I have a PS3 and an XBox 360, and a PC of course. I've heard that the PS3 version is laggy, and that the 360 version has awful load times. Have they patched those issues on either version?
    I got the 360 version. I don't have long load times, but I hear there's a problem when playing the game from the the hard drive.

    There was a problem with Textures not loading correctly when the game was installed on the Hard Drive but that was recently fixed in the last Skyrim update.

    Yes i had mine installed on HD works fine, no lag times, but I seem to be in the minority, I seem to find the game extremely tedious and boring. (Loving the graphics lots though)

    I play it and get bored attempting to do the challenges.

    Now normally I just love this type of game so much, but I just can't seem to get into it.

    It seems to be taking me too long on the travelling side and I think that's what I dislike.

    It's a friends copy, I didn't actually buy it, I'm kind of glad I never bought it now.

    If i keep on playing, will I begin to like it more everyone ? :D

    I often find the game tedious and boring. But I find the story interesting. I'm into it, but I've been playing other games more and more. There are some moments of greatness, but yeah, it can move real slow at times.

    Thanks for that 1jaxstate1, glad it's not just me. I do keep going back to it, but i seem to get fed up with it pretty often.

    I found the game to be the most fun when I was doing one of the Guilds questlines and also the main story.

    I feel like there are different kinds of openness in new games. There are open world games like the Elder Scrolls games and Fallout 3, and then there are open ended games like the Mass Effects and Star Wars: KotOR (my favorite game of all time). I MUCH prefer open ended games, where I have the options to persuade companions, choose certain quests, and react certain ways to conversations in order to shape the game. To me, they feel like they have enough structure so that the game doesn't get repetitive or mundane, but they are open enough so that I feel like I'm having a personalized experience.

    That being said, I still really liked Oblivion (I am usually behind on games because I'm so cheap [if you'll notice my sig has ME2, lol]) and I can't wait to own Skyrim. I just sometimes wonder if one can have too much freedom in a video game.

    100% correct. I'm starting to feel the openness of Skyrim, is sort of it's weak point. You get to do anything, but it tend to lead you to nowhere. As far as leveling goes, it also doesn't give you any direction. Choose to invest in the wrong skill set, BAM, you may not be able to kill some of the higher level enemies. I think the problem comes in for new users, like myself, who Skyrim is their first try at the Elder Scrolls games.

    I agree with you there all the way 1jaxstate 1, just gave it another hour there and got fed up with it again. :(

    I have so many quests open, and I can never seem to complete them, I find it hard to follow the map indications too.

    I so much want to like it.

    LOL, I have like 15 quest to do. You can remove the quest markers on the ones you don't want to do, or want to do later. I found that out about 5 hours in, and it helped a lot.

    Yes I know 1jaxstate 1 but it's not helping at all, i'm still trying to find the owner of the Golden Claw, it took me forever to find the greybeards as well, and my last hour was searching for the 3 stolen books from the college.

    I got stuck in some blasted cave looking for the first one sigh. (Never found it)

    I'm scared to speak to anyone incase it starts another quest LOL

    What chance have I got ? :D

    Well I have some awesome news for you. The Golden Claw quest is broke for me. I have it, but the guy I am suppose to give it to won't talk to me.

    More great news, the book quest, later down the line, is also now broke for me too. I died during part of the quest, which required me to get a key to enter a building. It worked the first time, but after I died, he no longer offers me the key. He just sits there with a quest marker over his head. The game placed me outside the door, via my last save point, but now it wont reboot the events I need to get the key again.

    It took me a 2 hours to find the greybeards. I only found them by watching a youtube video.

    Cheers. LOL!

    Well i have the Golden Claw too but I can't find who i'm supposed to give it to.

    Well thanks for telling me about more future problems in store 1jaxstate1.

    I'm struggling enough as it is without broken quests messing it up further. :D

    (I haven't cheated with YouTube yet, but will soon I'm sure)

    I'm not playing it until tomorrow now, I've had enough.

    Well, this is making me want to play it again. Strangely. Seems like we are pretty much at the same spot in the game. I'm going to give it another shot.

    You brave fearless soul. Hope a dragon gets you LOL ;)

    Yes we sound kinda close in the game.

    I hope my friend whos game I have carries on with her Assassins Creed, I don't think I'd buy it although I've seen it cheap now.

    It's not the sort of game you can rush, that's for sure. (Or I certainly can't) :D

    The names of the broken quest, for me.
    Reveling the Unseen: Search for Synod researchers
    The Golden Claw: Find the Owner of the broken claw
    Which quest is that? (so I know to avoid it)

    Evidently there are a TON of quest that are broken. And it varies on if you are playing on the PC, PS3, or XBOX. I found a wiki detailing the problem and there don't seem to be a fix. There are also YouTube videos of Quest that are broken, and the commentators are livid!

    Woo I went to Riverwood and the trader there took the Golden Claw 1jaxstate1.

    Have you tried that ? (2nd door on the right I think it was)

    Nah, I haven't tried that I'm back on the Elder Scroll quest now. I played for about a hour last night. I may go back to Riverwood and try and complete that quest. Did he give you another quest? If so, I think I'll just pass on it. LOL!

    Picked up a random piece of gold while doing a dungeon, and BAM, it said I had completed some other quest. LOL, I found that funny, I just picked up the item because it seemed valuable.

    Good stuff 1jaxstate1, i have learned never to speak to anyone now because they will either want me to do a quest for them or look at my Titan, and they aint getting neither!

    And I am unanimous in that! Grrrrr
