It is a relief to see that Bethesda listened to complaints that Oblivion felt too small. By making Skyrim so mountainous, they can take advantage of three dimensions to create more places to go and make travel have an epic feel, like it did with Morrowind. (the dimensions of the map are actually about the same size as Oblivion and both are physically larger than Morrowind, but Oblivion felt small and cramped)

that reminds me of mafia 2, huge beautiful city, but nothing to do but drive from point a to b, can't believe i can remember when game size was measured KB's, that's kilobytes to you kids out there.

Still playing ADOM and Dungeon Crawl and even older roguelikes crew reportin' in.

As stated in the thread, disk usage and map size are non-issue with Skyrim. A mountainous region indeed makes for much more terrain to admire and traverse with the added verticality that Oblivion lacked: the entire map there was essentially a flat plane with minor variances in elevation. On the physical storage side of things, Oblivion is only 5562 MB with all the GOTY content. That includes both Shivering Isles and Knights of the Nine, as well as the various DLC packs. Morrowind, by comparison, installs at 1060 MB, but my current install is 4760 with the HD overhaul and improvement package.

The only time size really matters is with something like Rage, when id, whose programmers are the ones most of the industry owes their current jobs to, says that their game is over a terabyte uncompressed, one must take pause and realize how much is compressed to release. Or something like Metal Gear Solid 4, which even with 50 GB of disk space still had fairly lengthy install times between acts and required a sizable initial install, though in my opinion (as far as consoles go, at least, on PC it's obviously a different story) it still stands up as superior graphically to even Skyrim.

Naughty Dog saying Uncharted 3 took up 24 TB in assets uncompressed was probably them just being tbh.

I agree. I love what Bethesda did with this game. It looks and feels more realistic than Oblivion did. This is definitely one to check out.

He left Microsoft after being a producer on three versions of Windows, and only left because one of the creators of Quake did the same. He usually owns up to his mistakes, and Valve generally does too. Not only that, but they poke fun at those mistakes - same as Bethesda.

You wish their servers had been irreversibly corrupted? What about the millions of games that people own on Steam? You wish we'd lost all the money we'd put into them? I personally own 446 Steam games, and I've only had one issue with Steam in the 7 years I've used my current account. So does Gabe Newell think he's god, or do you, with your wishing for such great financial loss to be inflicted on both Valve and its users?

Looks a lot different from another perspective, dunnit?

Really though, Steam is a great platform. Unless you don't actually have internet access, there's no reason not to make use of Steam Community to chat with friends ingame, and Achievements are always nice for a sense of progress. If you don't have internet access frequently, I'm sure you're aware of this, but make sure you've run each game you have in Steam at least once, then in the main steam window, click Steam>Go Offline, then they'll be fine.

Shotgunmaniac my friend in that 7 years you have been very lucky to have no bone to pick with Steam and i asume you have downloaded your games and play on-line,me on the other hand i purchase all my games on CD retail, i do not want to have to use Steam but i must and thats why i am so Hostile to Steam,also when i made my comment about Gabe being God i meant it,my history with Steam has been awful, i even wrote to Gabe 6 months ago to complain about the awfull service i have had in the past and todate no reply, ok he is a busy man but customer services are there for that job, so all in all i wish and hope your good luck with Steam stays with you, but believe me when things do go wrong its big style and it stops you from playing your game or games until Steam operators are satified.
kind Regards.
Mirralika.

I find Steam to be very handy. You don't have to drive around looking for a game, it's probably on Steam. No disc-swapping (which is making a resurgence), you may not remember the days of waiting on dialup in download queues for patches because developers hosted them with a third party, Steam activation has eased most developers DRM fears (Rockstar is painfully immune to it, though, making you do three levels of activation).

For those of us who sat through hours of floppy drives grinding away, Steam is a treasure.
