I think the main problems with Skyrim were the inconsistent writing and quest variety, the DLC doesn't really do much to improve those situations unfortunately. I wasn't exactly in love with the combat system either but at least it was a step up from Oblivion. Base game already has a ton of repetitive content, I don't really want DLC packs filled with those. I'd really like to see better themed expansions for the factions with unique quests.

There are some fan mods that add some interesting quests but they lack the production values in official content. Still hoping for a proper Shivering Isles style expansion pack, Dawnguard is far from that. In hindsight I should have listened to the reviews and waited but oh well, I've spent money in worse ways. To anyone on the fence though I'd definitely say wait for a sale.

That's the thing I hate the most about Skyrim. The quests. They are incredibly linear and simple. There are barely any dialogue choices and you can only very rarely complete them in alternate ways. In Fallout 3, there were pretty much always a ton of ways to do a quest and the writing was more interesting.

The gameplay for quests in Skyrim is pretty good tho. There's almost always a dungeon attached and those are very well done and always have a unique twist.

You can't really be evil in Skyrim, and that's a bummer. There are some evil choices here and there, but most of the time, you're forced to go along with the quest so that it doesn't break.
