Fucking terrible. How can people call this game perfect 10/10 GOTY best 'rpg' ever when a huge part of the game (NPC interaction) is total ass? When you are talking to a npc and another one comes within 10 yards of you it triggers a random line of dialogue. It's so fucking irritating hearing some guard say 'DONT START TROUBLE' when you are having a conversation with another NPC. Whoever let that shit in the final product should be fired.

There's a hundred things that aren't great in this game, and a few things that are really dumb, but now you're just being stupid.

You are totally right, the scripting in this game gets fucked up very often.

I love Skyrim, but Witcher 2 is my 10/10 GOTY best 'rpg' for me.

Since I saw the Quick Look on Witcher 2 I thought it had really good dialogue, and was a total step up above the generic fantasy stuff I'm getting now in Skyrim.

It's only an issue if you rely on subtitles or your brain can't distinguish from the person you're talking to and ambient dialog. Personally, I haven't had any issue from this whatsoever besides the subtitles changing to show what the other person is saying, but the person talking doesn't get drowned out at all.

How can people praise this game when there's an errant pixel right behind a tree three miles northeast from the 7000 Steps!? Did they even TRY to make this game good!?

Wow look at the fanboys come out. Bethesda games are heavy on NPC interaction, yet if they fuck it up it's just a minor issue to you guys. I'm sticking with my opinion that fans of Elder Scrolls games are way to willing to look past major fucking problems with the games. The reason? Who fucking knows, but what I do know is that the quality of these games is not "perfect score" material.

I've put 24 hours into Skyrim so far, and I can only remember this happening on a couple of occasions, none of which were in any way distracting me from the conversation I was having with an NPC. At worst it got a chuckle out of me, and at best it didn't even really register with me. So, yes, compared to all the other glitches and problems people are experiencing with this game, your complaint sounds incredibly trivial.

But hey, you feel that it's a major, game breaking, flaw. Who am I to say that I think it's a trivial complaint when you post it on a public forum?

I remember an important conversation during a dragon attack, the Jarl giving me and the dark elf commands to go out there and fight it, and meanwhile I have the Jarl's idiot brother standing between me and the Jarl, telling me about 'true Nords' and bragging about how strong he was. When I would move to actually watch the cutscene, he would move between me and the Jarl every time.

It's an issue, pretending it isn't is complete folly.

I didnt like the witcher or the witcher 2, because of the poor combat system. but i do think that skyrim could have used more whores and more nudity.

Bethesda have a mod community for that. There is already a nude mod on nexus.

Been playing for 30+ hours. I've had no issues with this. The only NPC dialogue I have problem with is "Don't tell me, someone took your sweetroll". Seems like the guards say that a lot. Other than that my experience has been fine.

I love the elder scrolls to death, but this is one of the most annoying problems in skyrim. It's so annoying it's kind of funny.

It'll be like, "I lost my swordwatch it citizmy mother cookcastlezen amwenfaoeru wooobwoobwbobwbo." I'm laughing and going crazy with dialog in my head going, " I CAN'T UNDERSTAND ANY OF YOU! STOP TALKING AT THE SAME TIME AHHHHH!!!." and often end up rereading what I have to do in the journal after the fact.

It happens all the time, but it's also really minute in that it barely affects the game's quality. If you're looking for a polished game experience, look elsewhere. Simple as that

haha nope.

Both games had boring combat, the only thing they really have going for it is the story, which I felt the first one was a lot stronger in that department. Yes the second one had a "revised combat system" but it was still along the lines of the first one which wasnt good. However to each their own.

This happened to me a couple time in Whiterun in front of all of the stalls near the inn. I was talking to the food lady and I had her, a guard, some Nord dude and a kid all talking at the same time, because they were all right beside me.

Believe me, subtitles do not help. They just layer on top of each other.

They should try to turn down voices of other NPCs while you're in a conversation with someone. Or at the very least, don't show subtitled dialog for everyone at the same time.
