    I'm a giant Dark Souls fan and I agree totally with the comparison. I'll see which game will provide me more satisfaction...bottom line I'm happy these games exist.

    the second school ends tomorrow, i'm literally gonna sprint to the bus stop, go to town, run to GAME and collect my pre order... :D

    Great review, this is why I stopped looking to IGN a long, long time ago. You guys address what we really want to know from a game review in terms of whether or not it's worth the money and how it performs from a normal gamer's standpoint.

    AGH! Not gettin Skyrim 'til Christmas... Incredibly jealous of everyone who gets it at launch...

    I loved this review! Every other review I began to read I had to shield my eyes and close the page cause ALL of them ventured into spoiler territory. When I play I want to be completely surprised :) Thanks!

    I can't wait to see what the modders do with this one. I'd be willing to bet that the first well made texture pack mod makes this look even better than BF3. I'm also pleased that multiple reviews have stated that load times are almost non-existent on PC. At 5:00 today, I'm off work until Wednesday. I can't wait to sit down with a giant mug of coffee tomorrow morning and get lost in the game.

    I wonder: is Xarl (I think that's his name) still working? The chap behind the texture packs in Oblivion.

    Qarl. I'm sure he is. His tex pack from Oblivion was amazing. I'm more looking forward to the first UI mod than anything else.

    Mods are why I keep buying every TES game that comes out. I probably logged another 100 hours in Oblivion on mods alone. Picking this game up tomorrow, grabbing some chips and locking myself in my room. lol

    You do realize why they allow people to make mods of games, right? It's basically an online IQ test. Only the most brain-dead retard would ever use them. By finding out who does use the mods, it helps profile the scum of the earth better.

    My only issue aside from the fact that I won't be getting this until Sunday or Monday is the fact that all the races have same body types, very humanish. Like a lizard man dude with a weird head and a human body. As a character designer I find that not cool. But I can't wait for this game and most of my life will be gone with this and Saints. I'm already getting tired of COD

    Of all the games coming out this and last month I also chose to buy this and Saints. Open worlds full of fun things to do.

    More bang for your buck, in this economy that is very important to me.

    It begins
