    I'm about to start this and unsure which race to choose.
    I hated Oblivion but adored Fallout 3 and Fallout:NV using VATS a lot.
    What would you recommend?

    Is there anything fun to buy? I seem to have accumulated 16 grand but can't find anything exciting to spend it on.

    Houses, or the components for a house if you have Hearthfire. You can easily spend tonnes of money there.

    It depends what you want from the game really, and what sort of class you want to play.

    If you are going for a tanky brute type, Nord is a good choice. For a spellcaster High Elf is good (I think it's High Elf, the one from Summerset Isle). Khajiit is good for stealthy types. That's the main three I think. The others are mainly good for bits and bobs rather than being stand out.

    If you hated Oblivion you will likely hate this.

    A sneaky archer would be best for you i reckon. A Sword, shield and resto  magic for when things go tits up.

    Don't forget to assign weapons to favourites then press Q in game to bring up the quick swap menu. From there you can press 1,2,3 etc to bind weapons to keys.

    That way combat flows so much better and you don't spend forever in menu screens.

    @Armoured_Bear

    Also, start the game on either Expert or Master difficulty as it's a tad easy.

    Tanky brute doesn't appeal, stealth, ranged attacks and magic do.

    I hope that the Fallout style levelling system will annoy me much less.
    I was planning on using a 360 controller as I'm a sofa and big telly PC Gamer, bad idea?

    Skyrim is a lot better than Oblivion. It's still so clunky in many ways, but the world is fantastic and it looks great.

    As for controller support, I seem to recall having a few problems with it, though I can't quite remember what.

    @Armoured_Bear Never tried the controller to be honest. Sounds like it would make archery a bit of a pain in the arse.

    Oh, there are a special line of mods just for you as well.. ;)

    It depends what your problem with Oblivion was. If you were bothered by the leveling system and scaled enemies (I wasn't that fussed, but apparently it was an issue for many), then the one in Skyrim is better.

    If, like me, you found the scenery and wildlife in Oblivion a bit dull, then Skyrim's is a lot better. There's mountains and such, and lots more animals around. The archery is fantastic, so going hunting is actually quite a bit of fun. And there are more varieties of dungeon, even though they still get fairly samey after a while.

    The NPCs, while improved, are still pretty lifeless. They seem to have more than two voice actors now, but the voice acting overall is pretty crap. And most of the quests are still pretty cookie-cutter.

    All of those things have been done better by, say, the Witcher games. But those aren't open like Skyrim. Maybe having such uneven quality is the price that needs to be paid for having so much content and such a big world.

    Anyway, I did like many parts of Skyrim. But whether you'll like it more than Oblivion depends on why you didn't like Oblivion.

    EDIT: Also, there were some puzzling design decisions taken with Skyrim. Many parts of the interface, for example, are utter shit, and make things far more confusing and obtuse than they need to be. This is not such a problem on PC - "mods will fix it", etc. - but you're stuck with it on consoles. (unless they addressed it with a patch. I dunno, haven't played it in months)

    I've started this over the last couple of weeks after avoiding it for ages, knowing full well it'd be like digital crack. I am very addicted just now and have been playing nothing else on the weekend evenings and have.

    Stealthy archer is certainly lots of fun Armoured_Bear. I opted for a Breton to get a decent balance for stealth and some spell casting.

    I think I may delay playing every Skyrim/Fallout game for a year or so now. I felt Fallout New Vegas was great, but really buggy and annoying on release. If Skyrim was like that too, it's been pretty well patched by now.

    No quests borked so far by my need to randomly wander and do stuff so far.....and those that might have been an issue have always had a 'I've already done that' option. Which has been very handy, although that might have been in from the start.

    Rating the new Dragonborn DLC a lot. Didn't think I'd be back in Skyrim after 100+ hours of it but this has sucked me back in like day one.

    Same, but it's a great bit of DLC.

    I forget how beautiful Skyrim is sometimes: just walked out of the house you can buy in Markath and wow, that view over the mountains, fantastic. The game deserved any design awards given to it.

    Fell back into Skyrim a couple of weeks ago after picking up both major DLC. Started w/ Dawnguard, and mostly enjoy it despite the lifeless Soul Cairn level which I disliked strongly. Made myself a spiffy new Nordic sword with paralyze perk for my light armored, one-hand spellsword character. Good times.

    I've been Dark Elf since Morrowind. Once you go black you never go back.

    I am a failed Medieval Batman. Lost a civilian (Chap called Amren) to a vamp attack on Whiterun. I wasn't quick enough on the draw to save him he ended up splattered all over the front gate. It was so close, my arrow went right through the vamps just as he killed him.

    Checked out his corpse and he had a Family Sword which I took along with his house keys. A day later I get an inheritance letter and money from a Courier which was oddly touching. So I decide to go back to Whiterun and check out his house. He had a damn wife and kid!

    It's now my mission to never lose another civilian and I'm going to shove Amrens sword (now tempered to legendary status) right up the head Vampires arsehole.

    I need to get out more.
