Its better on Xbox 360
I beat the game on the Xbox version and last year I bought the legendary edition for PC and played it again. Max graphics settings on PC and a few mods. I love the game either way but for some reason I was more immersed in the Xbox 360 version. The long load times, graphical hitching and all. I think the lower draw distance (lots of mist) made the game look more real. And the contsant blurriness of upscaled 720p smoothed out some of the rougher edges of combat. Or it was just playing it on the big screen. Does anyone agree with me or am I way off base?

i agree, but for me its just the controller

I use a always cloudy and foggy weather mod which really changes the atmosphere of the game and makes it look better I think because you can't see the ugly textures in the distance. It also gives it more of a fantasy feel. It kinda adds the illusion of blurriness to the game I think because you don't have the bright sunlight.

There are a lot of mods you can use that could probably make it similar to the way you want it.

You can plug your pc into a big screen and use a controller. 360 controllers should work fine.

How do you find a laptop that doesn't have a usb port? Why would you play games on a laptop? etc etc

it has a usb port, not the right one, i play on a laptop so I can move around

That doesn't even make sense all usb ports are the same. The only difference is what speed they are and they are all backwards compatible. Laptops don't have proper heat dissipation even with weird cooling pads and junk strapped on. I tried being a rebel once and playing games on my laptop, ended up with a nice paperweight.

There's full-size, mini, and micro USB. He may have a full-sized port in the laptop and only a mini connector on the gamepad.

Thoough there are adapters for that.

Yeah, I myself owned Skyrim on the 360 and enjoyed every minute of it. I have both my hdtv and monitor calibrated so it was a joy to play with accuarate colors. In saying that, after playing the 360 for more than hundreads of hours. I myself do enjoy the PC with 450+ hours but will always be fond of Skyrim on the 360. So much so, I transferred one of my 360 saves to the PC. :)

Put all the settings on low; and you got yourself a glorified Xbox version

I have it for both X-Box 360 and computer, but I do prefer the X-box. I can just lay back on the couch, turn the surround sound on and play away. Hearing the soundtrack is great in surround sound.

My computer screen is 22 inch and its about 2 feet away from me. I try to sit back as far as I can in the chair without it hurting my eyes. Still can't get comfortable. So, the 360 is where its been at lately. Currently working a lvl 38 Assassin in Solthstiem. Just completed the Dragonbourne Quest
