Like your quest markers? Gone.
How about your fast travel? Gone.
Oh, don't you LOVE your dual-wielding, shouts, infinite mana with the right gear, vampires that don't catch on fire on contact with the sun, followers, and anything else that is softcore? GONE.
Now, I'm not saying Skyrim is a bad game, it's actually a great game. It just seems a bit too easy to me. But, luckily, before the generation of games that help you aim, regenerate your health, and let you use a sniper rifle the wrong way but it somehow works, there was these kind of games.
This game is one of my personal favorites of all time. I really enjoyed this when I was a kid on the original Xbox, so, a couple years ago, I decided to buy it on steam.
It gives you a brief tutorial, then you're on your own, and it won't hold your hand. Just you, your weapon, your skills, and your unforgiving enemies (not to mention cliff racers... oh god, the cliff racers).
The story is also great. What's that? You're the dragonborn? How about a cross-Vvardenfell idol that kills gods, vampires, kwama, etc, is the greatest wizard in the history of Tamriel, and can literally levitate and go anywhere? Anyway, the story made me feel like I was a god. I never felt like that in a game in a while.
Overall, I would say this is a must-buy for any challenge-seeker, fan of classic games, elder scrolls fan, or those looking for a great RPG. This game is NOT for everyone, and I can understand that. This game is very memorable, though, and I would recommend for sure.
