    I found the same with Fallout, whilst the missions themselves were ok, there was far too much aimless meandering.

    I don't think I even made it to any of those side quests... Maybe I suck too, but I felt every battle was how well I could backpedal while aiming, or Boone taking shit out before I even saw it. :(

    This x10000. I barely made it 'above ground'
    Hated all the walking, especially when my inventory got too full and it started g o i n g r e a l s l o w :)
    Well i suck right with you. Just couldn't bring myself to play it anymore. Think I got to some town and messed around for a bit, then never turned it on again.

    Lol, we're in the same boat. I got out of that underground chamber and turned the game off. It lost all it's allure once I escaped.

    I'm serious lol that was like the lamest section of the game except for the ending.... there's like 40-60 hours of fun inbetween those two crappy parts :)

    I really liked Fallout 3, although perhaps not as much as Oblivion. I never really got into New Vegas though.

    Now Skyrim on the other hand...

    I wasted many hours on Oblivion, but never beat the game because of the leveling system. Is Skyrim going to have the same style of leveling where the baddies and quests level with the player, or will it take the traditional approach? The game looks beautiful, but i may skip it if it takes the Oblivion route; or wait until its on ebay.

    It's safe to assume the same approach. That was the best part of the fighting aspect, that the monsters leveled up with you.

    To be clear, I thought the game was amazing. I really did drop quite a few hours into it. What I couldn't wrap my head around was the leveling system. I had never played a game that employed that strategy, so being my novice self I leveled the heck out of my character without any real thought to how I should grow my character. When I came back to work the story, my skill level wasn't able to match that of the quests and I was doomed to screwing around doing side stuff.

    I did manage to complete the master thief quest line, which was awesome, and became the Grey Fox(I think that was the name).

    I think in the end, I know I could have simply restarted the game and done everything correctly, but it just burnt me knowing how many hours I sunk into it only to have to start over because of my ignorance.

    Ah yeah, I remember the way you could level up by training non-combat skills, which meant your enemies got more powerful whilst you didn't.

    I also remember the way you could max out combat skills without sleeping and levelling up, making you massively overpowered.

    Yeah there was something very wrong about the leveling system that had people run-jumping to try and level minor skills before a major skill leveled....or weird stuff like that.

    They say they have fixed that for Skyrim though

    this game cant come soon enough. all im hoping is that theres even more side quests than in oblivion.

    Oh and imma join the fallout 3 sucks group. made it to some town with like a nuke in the center and just couldnt get myself to play much furthur, just getting to that point was torture. there was almost 0 skill needed to play that game.

    The game may not have sucked for you if you had detonated the nuke.
