Not only that, but you can download mods into this game of LORD OF THE RINGS SWORDS N STUFF TOO!

You can marry animals in the PC version w/ console commands.

hahaha interesting fact.
is there missions? or objectives? are there like "bosses"

In general, with no mods, you have about 300+ hours of gameplay. Mods just add up.
In Side Quests you get dungeons you have to clear, all containing some sort of boss or difficult enemy. There's multiple factions - all with their own questline. You can get married. You can own homes, etc. tbh any Bethesda game is 100% worth your money.

There are but the missions are entirely optional, meaning you can just say "screw the missions i am gonna go hunt a animal".

Even if we do tell you some information, playing the game and reading reviews/information about it are 2 entirely different things
My suggestion is this: Buy Skyrim Legendary Edition its worth every money you spent on it :) plus you pay less than buying the game and dlc seperate

what do i get the legendary edition?
thanks guys|!!

Legendary Edition includes all Skyrim DLC's, which if bought seperately would probably cost you about 60 bucks.

^ what he said
Josh_Brady91 Mar 17, 2014 @ 3:06pm 
so what exactly do the mods add?
Mr.Hmm Mar 17, 2014 @ 3:08pm 
Most of them additional content. The most important however fixes bugs bethestha were too lazy to fix + enchance content.

My suggestion is to try the game whitout mods first then if you feel like it add mods :)

last question before i buy! can you use the mouse? also are the controls for pc good?
Josh_Brady91 Mar 17, 2014 @ 3:21pm 
are the pc controls easy to use?
la_nague Mar 17, 2014 @ 3:22pm 
you can use mouse, the controls are good. You can play 1st person or 3rd person, both are equally good in this game. mouse has no problems, i play first person and control is like an ego shooter.

only the menu is very consoleish, but there is the mod SkyUI, which replaced the menus with PC versions.

I think you should know that an elf in this game doesnt look like a lotro elf, but maybe there is a mod for that.

This game....You create a character and then you are put into a northern country.
It has several cities, multiple factions and guilds, it also has an ongoing story.
But you can do what you like. You can follow the story, you can join factions or you can scout the land on your own, it has secrets everywhere.
You can go into a city and talk with people and they will give you rumors or quests.
or you can murder everyone and steal all their stuff.
You can help the kingmayors get their city in order, or you can join like a thievesguild and cause havoc.

Up to you.
There is a reason why this game has been in steam bestellers TOP10 for 2 years nonstop.

actually, i just looked, there seems to be mods that add lotr elves as a race, but the mod site is down, so i cant see how good the mods are.
