This game is really good, obviously. Extremely popular etc. I think it was the scale of this game that surprise the gaming audience when it was released. The map is extraordinary, the variety of features and skills. There are so many skills and quests that I really don't think it is possible to 'finish' this game. It isn't linear either, your choices make an impact on the game which is not very common in such a large scale game. There are some cons, though that most people are overlooking, blinded by the awesomeness. I think this game lacked colour. That is a personal preference thing, but for the most part, it felt like I was playing in black and white. I really enjoy more colourful games. Another negative point would be the inventory wight system. The logic of it is rather frustrating. If you reach a certain inventory weight, your movement slows down to an unbearable crawl, this can happen if you pick up a flower and it crosses the weight limit. I guess it is logical that you cannot sell items in the middle of nowhere, but since the map is so vast, I would prefer if there were more locations to use alchemy ingredients, cooking ingredients, and to sell wares. Still, the pros definitely outweigh the cons and I highly recommend this game to any gamer. It is a significant game in console history and I think its one that most should try before they die.
