So, I didn't want to embarrass myself by posting four times in a row, figured now was the time. Hello, dedicated thread. I titled it this so we don't have to worry about the thread dying a cruel, cruel death once Skyrim talk dies down. I'm sure there will be a sixth game in the future.

Anyways, the reason I just had to say one more thing about Skyrim wassss....

I don't read enough books in real life to start reading books in Skyrim.

I really should play Daggerfall and see what that's all about. And more of Morrowind.

I actually am having a pretty good time reading these. No idea how far I get, but we'll see.

I've painstakingly gotten through 40 pages of Carl Sagan's The Demon Haunted World.

In two days.

I'm such a slow reader. You'd have to double my time on Skyrim from 200 hours to 400 hours if I were to ever read the books.

No lol. I'm at ~30 hours. I was more referring to what happened when I played Oblivion (which I did have 200+ hours).

Gotcha lol.

What happens with an Elder Scrolls game when you "beat it"? Is it over or can you continue playing. Based on what I'm hearing about how Morrowind ends, I would assume it would be difficult to continue running around once the game's complete...

Well with Oblivion you're free to run around and do all side quests and whatnot.

With Fallout 3, the game ended and it was done. However, with an expansion pack, the ending 'continues' if you will. In Fallout: New Vegas, you can continue playing as well.

In Skyrim, and for all future games, it sounds as though you will always be able to play after you beat it.

You basically just alter the world in which you inhabit by your decisions as an RPG game, and whatever decisions you make will effect what happens in the world. In games like Oblivion, you only have one option. In games like New Vegas, there are upwards towards 10 unique outcomes, however the results are very irrelevant minus two to three different major decisions.

You can keep doing stuff in Morrowind after the main quest. I've had that game since 2003 and still haven't done everything there is to do.

Someone used console commands on a PC to spawn 50 dragons at once in Skyrim.

Lol.

Those blood dragons are so annoying. They literally hit you with that fire spray and you can't do anything about it until it decides to land. And then it does that little butt-wipe thing like a dog as it crawls after you. I was fighting one and I got it to half health and then it ran away. I don't know what ever became of it... I wanted to kill it.

Ha, that looked pretty cool.

I really wish I could buy Skyrim for the PC, but damn, I am just TOOO far in to start over now.

LOL, I haven't seen a blood dragon yet, but they sound hilarious!

Frost and I (yes, he's still alive) were beating up on some bandits yesterday at Halted Stream Camp when a dragon flew in. It went in circles and roared a few times, and then just flew away into the distance. I was a little disappointed.
