I'm not sure if I feel it's the best game in the series yet (I don't like how much they took out, especially in the attributes sections. So every character can now carry 300lbs, and that's it? Strong characters don't get a bonus in carrying? It's just dumbing down for no reason whatsoever. Even the most idiotic MW player can figure out that More Strenght = Carry More. Apparently Bethesda didn't think so.) but I do love Skyrim.
I especially really enjoy the added difficulty. Went to kill a bandit leader somewhere, and got royally RAPED by a Saber Cat on my way there.
Tried to sneak attack a Giant camp, and got turned into Bantha Puddu by a Mammoth.
Tried to climb a mountain and got destroyed by something I didn't even see. One second I'm climbing, the next second I hear some ferocious animal roar and I'm tumbling down the mountain, dead as a doorknob.
Also, I know everyone harped on Oblivion for being too "Generic Fantasy", but at least it was colorful. Skyrim's a bit too much drab green, grey and white for my taste.
But all in all I'm loving it. Still trying to find the Thieves' Guild.
Increasing your Stamina at level up increases your carrying capacity.
