Anybody here play? I got it for ps3 and it is fantastic. Blows the pants off any other game I've played for ps3. I'm usually into sports games, but I'm going to shelve Madden and NHL for a while and slay some foul beasts.

I really want to play it, but due to buying a secondhand XBox that happened to be modded, I can't play anything released after this past April. It looks really amazing, to the point that I've heard it's really hard to stay focused on anything due to how immersive it is.

The hype and reviews for this game have been crazy. I can't tell whether I'm super happy or super sad that I tend not to play video games anymore. Things look so insane these days, but if this was all happening when I was 14, I don't know if I ever would have left the house.

Even when I'm not playing it, I'm thinking about what I'm going to do the next time I play. I'm about 30 hours in and have done barely anything in the main quest.

Shouting is amazing. I feel like a jedi.

A friend whom I haven't seen in a while just invited me out. I'm seriously thinking about blowing her off so that I can play Skyrim instead...

dalek, I stayed in tonight to play. Haha. At least someone else shared my thoughts.

I think I am with Ed on this one. It's the best game ever.

How amped do you get when you hear big wings flapping overhead? The whole game is amazing, but there is just that little extra bit of cool to it when you are fighting a dragon.

I also find it enormously satisfying to bring down a dragon or a giant with weapons/armor/etc. I crafted from hides of animals I hunted and ore from mines I smelted myself.

This gets me really excited for what Fallout 4 eventually could be. I've always been more of a fan of that setting than the Elder Scrolls setting.

Minor annoyance: When fighting a dragon in a town and you hit one of the townsfolk, who seem to purposely get in your way, causing 78 red dots appear on your compass...

I have to echo all of the sentiments expressed so far in this thread. Easily one of my favorite games of late. There's just something awesome about all the random misadventures you can go on (I think I've only done like 3 or 4 of the actual main story quests after like ~30 hours of play).

Word. It took me about 20 hours in before I fought that first dragon. Made me upset because that's 20 hours I wasn't able to Shout. :c(

I'm seriously still up to right after that in the main quest. I'm almost done with the College quest line though... I'm dreading going into Labyrinthian.

It's ridiculous. You can play pretty much endlessly without getting redundant or finishing. plus a lot of the little side quests/dungeon crawls are dynamically generated, so they're actually NOT the same every time you go in them, etc. Ten races, gotta be more than half a dozen factions, plus two main quests in the civil war and the dragonborn thing...really amazing work by Bethesda.
