Mod it faggot.

Still no amount of modding can turn boring forest into something good, I grant you.

And Morrowind is just too old now to go back to it.

Skyrim is too recent to be replayable.

TESO is a MMO.

Really now is not the time for TES; now is the time to fill the gap with other games until 2020, when Tamriel comes out.

It's not Skyrim's recency that keeps it from being replayable (or playable in general).

>>285877059

What is then? Given that it's mechanically and aesthetically the best in the series by a large margin, I mean.

>Guys listen what if... GUYS LISTEN... what if we spend more than 90% of the budget on Sean Bean and Patrick Stewart and use 5 voice actors for the remaining zillion characters?

Oblivion, Fallout 3 and Skyrim are not video games, they are casual playthings.

Nah I'd advise against that. Oblivion was my first, too, and I loved it, but I replayed it again a couple of months ago. Underwhelming. Disappointing. Almost ruined the memories.
>>
But OP, it was the best Scrolls game
>>
I love Oblivion. It was a good balance of freedom, but within a streamlined game. It had the most interesting quests by far. Skyrim felt too walled in with the mountains. The removal of the crazy jumps/ability to fly really made that worse. The magic in Skyrim was a joke. The A.I. felt worse to me somehow, every fucking dude in charge of a town saying the EXACT same line to you. The lighting was terrible - either blowout highlights with zero color or crushed blacks. The U.I. was boring, "shouts" were largely useless, dragons were uninteresting, the main quest was awful, as were most of the side quests.

Oblivion was a lot of fun, shame about the dungeons,oblivion gates being the same and retarded levelscaling.

I know they will never get it right, but they are the only company making open world fantasy games like this anymore.
>>
>>285874330
The lack of variety it what keeps Skyrim from being replayable. After 30 or so hours there's nothing to do that you haven't already done 50 times already.

No acrobatics skill for sicknasty jumps across buildings

Magic was horrifically balanced to be complete and utter shit in vanilla, you have to mod the shit out of it to make it competative.

>I played this game for at least 50 hours trying to get into it

I wanted to love it so badly, /v/. The intro and the soundtrack are excellent, but the simple combat, poor character models, and uninteresting world held me back from truly enjoying it.

I still don't regret my time playing Oblivion though. Lots of great times fucking around in the Imperial city. Also Shivering Isles was awesome.

>>285880925
JRPG's at least have bosses that do interesting things, or are at least themselves interesting. Not some Draugr with the added "ancient" prefix that means his sword, which looks like all the others does 100x's the damage of other enemies that look just like him.

Dead serious, and Morrowind is what I tend to reply with when asked what my favourite game is.

I can finish any questline whilst heavily drunk.

It's lost its magic for me. Plus, it's old, I get motion sickness from 90s 3D nowadays. I didn't at the time, but maybe I'm getting old.

They won't announce the next Elder Scrolls any time soon, same reason they keep pushing the Fallout 4 announcement.

They want this piece of shit to remain relevant.
