Dunno about you guys, but I bloody enjoy a good solid single-player RPG from time to time so that shooters don't become too over-whelming or repetitive, and after what TES: Oblivion gave, I can expect TES: Skyrim to simply blow me away for a 2nd time.

Oblivion had everything I liked in a RPG... FPS view, free-roaming landscape, simple but varied interface, cool armor/weapons to customise, lots of different monsters, tons of caves/dungeons, interesting quests, and generally a pretty solid plot.

And from I can tell from the trailer that finally shows in-game footage in all it's glory, Skyrim is going to be more of the same, but with Eye-Candy to BOOOT!

Alas, if you haven't seen the trailer, here it is (And a fine trailer it is, worth your time even if you're not a RPG fan at all.)

*Btw, if you have a free gametrailer.com account, you can download and save it to ya harddrive to show ya mates when they come by.

This will definitely be a benchmarking game, and I suspect even tho cards like a 580 will be able to run the graphics on high/max, but you'll still need even MORE power to max out the huge draw distances. But that's just my opinion, time will tell.

The pure attention to detail is over-whelming, a RPG with a true sense of atmosphere to really draw you into the game. Much like the explosions and dust in BC2 draw you into the atmosphere of the game.

Release date? On the trailer, 11.11.11 ... lol

This will definitely be one game I will be getting this year, what a pity I have to wait so long... *sigh*

Oblivion was the only Fps/Rpg game I could stand to play. The only thing it lacked was the multiplayer aspect. I'm looking forward to Skyrim, the teasers looks just amazing.

my bro subscribes to game informer magazine, and then he passes them on to me, this last issue on the cover it had skyrim on it, i do like rpgs alot, this one looks great, im looking at getting it myself.
never tried oblivion, when it came out i had a cheapie acer desktop i bought from dick smith with a crappy gpu, so i didnt bother getting it, but i will most likely give skyrim a go for a change.

Sorry for the thread necromancy here (although I was about to make a similar topic), but is anyone else considering getting this? I got Oblivion a month ago and it's crazy addictive (already spent 108 hours on it), a bit computer taxing though - it runs so many scripts; it'll probably slightly better than the resource-hungry Metro 2033 unless you do some tweaking and grab optimization mods.

That aside, Skyrim looks good so far, but I'll love to see a different leveling system, Oblivion's is shitty as somebody who wants to max out everything has to make their character backwards, unless they grab a mod that changes it. Apparently the devs are talking about mod support for PS3 and 360 versions, but is up to Sony and Microsoft respectively in the end. Either way, PC version is definitely the way to go with Bethesda's RPG's.

OMG Skyrim mechanics and graphics look amazing. Might need to pick this one up. Although Im pretty sure it wont have massive multiplayer which is a big dissapointment.

This is one game that on my "Definately Gotta Play it" list. I've always loved The Elder Scrolls series, and I have no trouble admiting that I clocked up some extreme hours in both Morrowind and Oblivion.

Skyrim looks like it will be more of the same excellence of it's predecessors. One of those games with a true atmosphere to it, that draws you in and makes you really feel like ANYTHING is possible, due to it being a free-roaming game. A true RPG, with adventuring galore.

I love games with atmosphere, not just pretty graphics. So I'll happily mention Bad Company 2, Bioshock, and Doom 3.

And no, I wouldnt hold your breath for any multiplayer support at all. The Elder Scrolls Dev's have made it clear: "If we spend extra time adding multiplayer support, we wouldnt be able to make such a good singleplayer experience, plus multiplayer adds in the margin of error that is BUGS". Although even just co-op support would be nice... one can only dream...
