Me too, best race IMO.

What I've heard from the character design is that level/skill system has been completely redesigned. Unarmed combat has been removed and magic is more "fun" to play.

No unarmed combat? But how will I punch?

Gecko, I have to apologize.

Back when Oblivion got out, I ridiculed the game based on my crappy experience with Morrowind. And as such I ridiculed you for liking it.

I tried Oblivion finally when a friend got me the GotY edition on steam. Rather than judging it from my morrowind hating perspective, I went in knowing that I liked Fallout 3, a game that shares a lot IMO with Oblivion. And I have to say, I like oblivion, and Skyrim is on my watchlist.

(Although Oblivion is still far from being my favorite RPG, if only because the leveling system is somewhat broken, either you have to willingly exploit it to get the most out of levels, or you get to raise stats poorly if you go with it more naturally. A revamped leveling system is a good thing for Skyrim.)

I agree about leveling. I wish that for the most part they would just make a realistic battle system. So you're not there hitting a human like 50 times with your sword trying to kill him. I can understand if they block it. But when you're hitting something that many times with a sword, it won'y survive THAT long. Let people realistically stab, slice, even decapitate people and monsters... no ridiculous drawn-out battles based on game difficulty. Yeah, I'm one of those guys who turned the difficulty down at some point because I was more interested in following the sidequests and stuff than getting slaughtered by rogues or cops in the wilderness. I know they've changed the battle system, I just hope they've fixed it.

I'm one of the biggest fanboys for the elder scrolls series, but skyrim has me worried... Morrowind IMO was the best RPG of the time and still the best in the series not taking into account the stupidly bad graphics compared to modern games. The essence of Elder scrolls is - and this is a direct quote from Morrowind's manual - "The goal is whatever you want it to be." Oblivion started to stray from this idea when it introduced the "new" sort of buggy levelling system. Between Morrowind and Oblivion, the developers removed 6 skills, 16 weapon types, and 7 spells. This was an acceptable loss, but an old fan could tell that oblivion felt streamlined in design. Skyrim by the looks of it has taken more cues from oblivion and is treamlining more and more facets of the game going so far to take out hand-to-hand, which personally doesn't matter to me, but it has been a skill in elder scrolls since day 1. I think that the developers are taking a backward approach to the design by removing instead of adding.
