How do i keep the interest in playing!
i got 33 hours played, yet, i always quit, around the point where i finish the first big town, and on the Main story line, i never made it past the part where you have to visit the oracle up in that mountain to the south..east?, its wierd, because i absolutly love Fallout 3/New vegas, and have played both of those to death, and this is the same, minus lazors :P, but with Skyrim, i kinda just go dead quite early


any tips?

take a break. I adore Skytim but sometimes I just don't want to play it. after 3 months, go back and it will seem new again. start where you left off. thats what i do. it works.

I wish FO3 still worked on my PC. nothing stops it from crashing for me. and i'm not a big fan of NV. In fact, I'm like you are with Skyrim on NV. I get bored fast. I really miss FO3. Can't wait for FO4. And ES6!

Play something else for awhile. You do own more than one game, don't you?

While I understand that, this mod has virtually no effect on the vanilla game. It just sends you somewhere else at the start.

Look, you're asking people to make you like a game. That isn't something that can be done. You either like the game and want to play it or you don't.

I played for 3 days once with no sleep. Had a blast. (Long weekend, I do have a life lol) I got bored as ♥♥♥♥. Didn't play for 2 days, after that, I wanted to play Skyrim so badly. Played for another 200+ hours. Got to about level 60 in about a weeks time. (Screwed around didn't really try to quest) Just gotta take some big breaks.

I have hundreds of hours into Skyrim, and maybe 4 of that is the main quest. Stop playing the main quest if you don't enjoy it, there is plenty of other stuff to do.

The sad thing is that I gave you what is probably the most helpful and truthful reply you are going to get; only you just don't like the message. C'est la vie, no?

If you are interested, you can turn skyrim into a survival oriented game, and just try to survive the land and find adventure. Mods like "Frostfall" and "Realistic Needs and Diseases" make it so you can die from the elements or if you don't find food and water. And Hunterborn adds survival gear like warm clothing and tents, as well as hunting and skinning animals.

Just one suggestion to make things a bit more exciting and different.

Try the mod : Random Alternate Start

Try to start a new character with a different (like Archer, Wizard, Thief, Bandit) and fool around if you like.
