its been almost 6 years since Oblivion was released and you can bet that bethesta has been working on ES V since then, i don't believe they're going to skimp on the content at all.

Well after hearing rumours of the game getting a lot more linear does put a question mark to your statement, no offense.

But rumours usually stay as rumours and I hope for it in this instance.

More linear isn't necessarily bad, though. Look at the mod for it, Nehrim. It is FAR more linear than vanilla, but even better than it in my opinion.

This is true. Fallout 3 and New Vegas only have Bethesda logo on it, Bethesda didn't touch Fallout3 and NV hence why they were made by Pandemic or who ever it was. All previous Elder Scrolls games set up the RPG bar pretty high, each game put it even higher, so they have to work hard and long on Skyrim if they want it to be equal with Oblivion or even more awesome. And even thought Skyrim is somewhat smaller than Province of Cyrodiil I think it'll still be overloaded with map locations, quests, side quests, brotherhoods and what not. Elders Scrolls series is a grandfather of RPG games. They cannot **** that up. Only a stupid person would do that.

If they do they'll lose quite a lot of fans.

Indeed, but doesn't linear gameply ruin the meaning of RPG?

RPG's are all about what you do and how that shapes the future moments of the game.

I am still finding it hard to sum up the total quests found in Oblivion and all the possibilites you can play around with. I don't if Skyrim will follow down this path, but if it doesn't - It is no different than medieval First person/Third person adventure with a strong RPG feel.

Seriously guys. The Elder Scrolls is like my most favorite games ever. I remember when Oblivion came out, that game blew my mind away... literally. I think I actually went mental over that game.

Always, what else is new in this game?... besides awesome dragons and stuff. Like is it gonna be multiplayer, better customization, stuff like that.
Sorry if you guys already went over this. I didnt check the previous pages.

They've added the pre-order ability but it's only for United States and GameStop at the moment. Damn it I wan't to pre-order it while I still have a valid card.

Typically, how much earlier do you get it if you pre-order?
(Never tried it)

You misunderstand, pre-ordering isn't receiving prior to release dates, it's simply buying the game before it is released.

Pre-ordering simply means you've purchased it before it reached the stores, but you will not receive your copy until the game's scheduled release date. Companies usually give out different bonuses to people who pre-order them and they also deliver the games once they're released. Usually works in the States because of the whole mail order system being better handled than other continents or countries.

Wow... for as long as I can remember, I thought the whole point of pre-ordering was to get the game before the release date.
I can see the point of purchasing before it reaches store, but I like my version of it way better.
