84 6 years since I last played this game. I had forgotten how effin’ long it is.
Whew. That only took *checks time played* 162 hours, and I didn’t even finish the main storyline at this point. Well, I sort of did. Playing it on the PS3 is a massive bitch, let me tell you. It freezes and it crashes and it’s a freaking mess, and I really wish I had a PC to play it on instead.

Beautiful game for the time, and I’ve seen screenshots of the game from PCs where they have lighting mods and upped graphics and hnngh. It’s so pretty. I love it.
Music’s some hardcore nostalgia for me. The game might make me mad sometimes, but the music is really freaking good.
Since we’re going on PS3 for this (I have played the PC version, back when I owned a decent PC), it’s … so. Goddamn. BUGGY. SO BUGGY. I mean, it’s pretty hilarious most of the time, but, like. It can be a massive hindrance at other times and really get frustrating.
And the PS3 can barely handle the game! I went ahead and looked it up, thinking maybe I had something set wrong, but nope. It’s just a thing that happens. And it SUCKS.
For the record, though, did have some great and funny bugs. Here’s one I had a few weeks ago:
Excuse the shaky footage, I was on the phone with my friend when it happened and was laughing too hard to hold it still. Don’t ask me what all those guards were doing there.
I’ll be honest, I’m not a huge fan of the main storyline in this one. I like the whole UR A DRAGONBORN, BUDDO thing and slaying dragons and stuff, but. Like. At times it felt kind of weak and pushed along just so you keep playing? I don’t know. Some of the side quests had better stories than the main quest. Not my favorite of the Elder Scrolls, but eh. It was entertaining anyway.
Bugs killed me, constant freezing nearly sent me on a murderous rampage, but, all in all, I still really enjoy playing the game. Elder Scrolls is a great series, and all this does is make me want to go back and replay the older ones (Oblivion and Morrowind, especially) that I haven’t played in forever.
