I know this has been around for some time. My son had got it and played it loads. Everytime I looked in on him, he was in some brown tunnel, or dingy hut.
'This is great!' he would say 'Looks very brown' I would say.
Then in November I walk in, 'You still playing that bloody game' says I and stopped
He was stood on top of a mountain looking over a huge expanse with a dragon flying in the distance.
I sat down and watched him play for about an hour, helping him
(Obviously he would say annoying him rather than helping)
I started playing myself in November

Its awesome
If you own an xbox360 and loved D&D, you owe it to yourself to play this
Amazing music as well

Yes I'm a couple of years out of step but I get there in the end

Somehow I assumed brown tunnels would appeal to you

I'm still playing Skyrim well over a year after first getting it. Massively immersive, and absolutely chocka with scenery inspiration (cf: recent dwarven pillars). Play it on the biggest screen you can find - it's that good looking.

only recently got it myself as I never really got on with Oblivion - just the style of it (like Fallout 3), but heard so many good things about it figured when it was on the steam sale to give it a go. tried it once, not gone back to it, picked up Dragon Origins via G2A.com with the DLC and expansion for £6 and not playing anything but that now.

I've been playing it on and off and enjoyed it but I cut back playing it so I can paint figures but I still chuck a couple of hours at it a week when the kids are in bed and the wire if watching some renovation shite.

I was always told that Skyrim was a total time sink so have always avoided it because of that. Although, it is cheaper now in CEX so I might nab a copy at some point. I tend to do everything that Steders recommends :shock:

I deleted it when I noticed that I had put in over 600 hours on it. :oops:
