I was thinking about buying it but I think it not worth the money
is skyrim worth buying
I think people really do blow the PS3 problems out of proportion. I've put about 100 hours into this version, and while I saw some chugging framerates in Whiterun and a few backwards-flying dragons, it's by no means unplayable. Patches, while far from perfect, have fixed most of these troubles (which are not game-breaking, by any means).
To tell someone not to buy the game on PS3 is just ludicrous -- this is an epic, one-of-a-kind game that comes along once every decade or so. Don't miss it, even if you're playing on Sony's console.
They are 2 completely different games. If you want your money's worth then you can't go wrong with Skyrim. Portal 2 is also worth the money but you won't get as much out of it simply because it's a shorter game.
thank I want to get portal 2 but I saw skyrim and thought about it and came here
If you're thinking about getting it for the Xbox, then I'd wait for the GOTY edition. If you're getting it for PC, however, I'd go ahead and get it. The mod community will have created plenty of things to do by the time you've exhausted all the vanilla game has to offer.
Portal 2 is a great game, and fun to play in local co-op.
Skyrim is the most game you can get for your buck just in terms of sheer size. And if you know how to roleplay, it's the best game you could ever hope for. Gritty, grimly beautiful and so open that it leaves some people paralyzed and others complaining that the game is broken because they can do things they don't have to.
It's a minority of PS3 users -- a fraction of those who play Skyrim for hundreds of hours. And, yeah, that's a lot of people who can't play Skyrim, eventually. But of course that number goes down with each patch. All of my problems stopped after 1.3.5. And what can't be fixed can be attributed to hardware. Maybe 5% of hardcore players will eventually get unbearable lag that can't be fixed because of hardware limitations. What do people suggest, that no PS3 users should get to experience Skyrim at all if those 5% can't play after 80 hours? As someone who only owns a PS3, I'll take the chance that I might not be able to play Skyrim for 300 hours on the PS3, rather than guarantee I can't play Skyrim at all.
If you think that "being long" is a bad thing, you don't want Skyrim.
I have ps3 and bunch of you said it bad and I don't know a thing about it and 300 hour sound long so there are side quest on it and I not a troll
Your typing is very hard to understand so I can't tell when you're asking a question, stating an opinion or just reciting a fact. But, hey, give Skyrim a shot. I didn't know anything about massive open world RPGs when I first popped Morrowind into my XBOX. Now, I can hardly play anything else.
why is it worth it on the 360 pc
The 360 version is the superior console version (no oxymoron intended). Or at least, was. I've heard that the latest patch, 1.4, fixed all the lag issues on PS3 which rendered the game unplayable after some time. I guess you can buy either version now, if those rumors are true.
On PC, mods. Seriously. Fucking mods are amazing. They are as simple as animation tweaks to things as complex as redoing the whole magicka system, including textures, gameplay, quests, places, weapons, armors, companions, etc.
If you don't think it's worth buying it's not worth buying. Simple as that. Pointless thread. Come on, read reviews, watch videos, make up your mind. Give us more info as to why you don't think it's worth 50 bucks or whatever the price is nowadays and perhaps someone can help you.
Listen, you can find a TON of things about Skyrim all around the internet. It's pointless to ask a group of strangers on the internet if it's worth a purchase or not. However, if you're still interested in what we have to say, I think the game's okay. I don't think it's spectacular, but it's solid and will keep you interested. I'd say check it out. The PS3 version is pretty busted though, so rent/buy the PC or the Xbox 360 version.
