I can't see how TES:V is going to improve the games. I feel like we will just get an awesome base to run mods on so I can't be so psyched about it. But killing a dragon in TES is going to be great. Trying to hide from the firebreath behind a rock or something only to find the dragon taking flight and scorching you completely.

Well we don't have any gameplay yet so it's hard to say.

I'm expecting seriously awesome graphics though. I hope they won't let the 360 and PS3 hold them back in that department.

I hope they introduce (or reintroduce) new weapon types too. Throwing weapons really need a comeback, as well as polearms and maybe crossbows.

The most awesome thing that could happen though would be if they added a Mount & Blade esque attack and block system. It's an action-rpg, some degree of skill should be needed in combat.

True dat.
I don't want it done like mount and blade though. It's not working right on many levels.
But there should be a system where you actually needed to fight. Hit boxes it definitely needs. Some units should have armored areas and weak spots etc. Would make sneak attacks that more awesome too.

YES! I can post again in proper forums
==============================================

OMG OMG OMG I want this game so much *hihihihihihi*

Anyways I really hope they can keep up with their release date, in that case it means it not even a year from now

And if I should mention my highest wish for this game, it is much more fun and dynamic combat. My dream has ALWAYS been to have a combination between Dark Messiah and Oblivion so I really hope they can deliver something like that.


And did you guys noticed that it was Max von Sydow who did the talking, kinda freaked out when I noticed it, such an awesome voice

I have bought every TES game since Arena, and every time I tell myself I'm not going to buy another.  Because frankly I don't think they're very enjoyable.

And yet each time a new one comes out, I buy it.

Well dragons are of major importance in Tamriel.

Tiber Septim ascended to become the god known as Talos, and in Skyrim Talos is worshipped as Ysmir, the Dragon of the North.

The Dragonborn could be referring to a new emperor carrying the blood of the Septims. Maybe the player takes the role as the Dragonborn and ultimately becomes emperor

Throwing dragons into a fantasy game is less inspired than casting Michael Cera as an awkward geek in a movie.

But having fantasy without dragons is like having a warm icecream. It might be original, but that doesn't mean that it's a good idea.

haha well I have only played Oblivion but but I'm happy for that, because if I would have played Morrowind I would perhaps not have liked Oblivion.  

I just hope Skyrim will turn out to be even more modable then Oblivion

0/10, man, at least put some effort into it.

I might actually pick this game up, if it's a new engine; FO3 was the first Bethesda game I got into and I just couldn't bring myself to go play Oblivion after that as the graphical style didn't really do it for me. After the open-world strength of Fallout 3, though, I feel like I'm missing out.


I agree that Mount&Blade different attacks and blocking would be a great addition, so you don't just hold down left click and kill stuff.

I will still buy the game.  I do hope it is more like Morrowind than Oblivion.  I liked Oblivion but there just seemed to be more going on in Morrowind.

So... just sat here thinking about stuff that could improve the TES series for me, personally. Just ideas.

* New combat system
Move your mouse to the right and hold the left mouse button, your character prepares a strike coming from the right, release the mouse button and he/she attacks. Enemies and the PC must block accordingly by moving the mouse to the side that the attack is coming from and pressing the right mouse button. All in all there are 4 attack and block directions. Using a shield allows you to block attacks from all directions without needing to choose a direction, though you can still repel attacks more efficiently by timing the attack and direction correctly.

It's a simple system but improves the immersion and action considerably.

* More weapon types
Like... polearms, throwing weapons... crossbows maybe...
I'd also like the ability to use black powder as a base for my alchemy experiments and create poisons that can be thrown at the opponent as bombs.
I'd also like the blunt/blade system to be scrapped, and instead introduce a 1-handed and a 2-handed skill.

* Survival system
Ya know... eat, sleep, drink...
And potions should actually require a drinking animation that can be interrupted by the enemy, no more instant-menu-healing-potion-spam, breaks the immersion.

* More background story for your character
In Oblivion your character is pretty much an empty picture, you draw your own character as the game progresses. However, having a backstory makes the roleplaying that much more enjoyable. Something akin to Dragon Age's origin system comes to mind.

* Better NPC speech patterns...
God this was so annoying in Oblivion...
No? Really? ARE YOU REALLY FRICKING SURE THAT THERE ARE NASTY MUDCRABS AROUND?! I haven't heard about 'dem mudcrabs in like 5 seconds, I almost forgot about them.
And ****... if you're gonna have different voiceactors for every race and every gender then can't you at least make them say something a bit different? Do they have to say the same exact lines...?

* The animations Betheseda...
Really, this doesn't seem to be their strong suite. The animations in Oblivon and Fallout 3 (and to some degree, New Vegas) were all very lifeless imo. Needs improvement.

* Dynamic Economy system
Does a village have a ton of deer nearby and already have a local hunter? Then your 20 deer pelts and antlers are probably not gonna be worth much there.
Trying to sell your magical Welkynd Stones to the armorer is probably not gonna work pretty well either, you better find a mage or something, though he might know of their value too well... hmm...

* XP system > use-it-to-level-it-system
I can't choose acrobatics as a major skill because it's not a combat skill and it will make me end up weak? Aww...

The XP system where you get to choose exactly what you want to improve when you level up might not be the most original, but it's definately superior to Oblivion's system.

Let's say, for instance, that you want to use a super-dupa mace when you're at a higher level, but want to use destruction magic until you get there. Well sucks to be you cuz in Oblivion once you get to that level your destruction skill is gonna be top-tier while your mace skill is gonna suxxor.

It's a roleplaying game, you want to control how your character develops. (there's an excellent Oblivion mod for this named Oblivion XP)

* Non-leveled enemy system
Some areas should simply be fricking dangerous, regardless of your level. In Oblivion you could steamroll the game if you let your level stay at 1 while leveling up your skills... lame.
Having areas that are simply too dangerous for your current level encourages you to develop

* More choices
Yeah that's never bad, imagine if we could join the Mythic Dawn in Oblivion instead of hanging with Martin Septim? (yeah I know there are mods )

Yeah that's all I can think of for now
