    Ugh, the combat in Morrowind is so dire. It's a shame Bethesda couldn't have made a deep game like Morrowind with the much better combat of Skyrim.

    Yeah, the adaptive difficulty killed Oblivion and I didn't like Skyrim that much.

    The over reliance on quest markers rather than require reading at a 3rd grade level in Skyrim to find out where to go for quests was incredibly annoying. The main plot was pretty dull and uninspiring. I had much more fun just walking around doing all the side quests and DLC (which was actually decent)

    Not to even begin on the monotone dungeons that have the exact same puzzles over and over again that you don't even have to think about, since they literally give you the answers.

    Though props to Bethesda for improving the combat. Skyrim is hands down the best combat in the series. I tried doing a replay of Oblivion, and it was just painful.

    Hate to sound basic and mainstream but for me its got to be GTA 5. Three years on no game comes even close to being as in depth and detailed as that game.

    I would say Overwatch now if there were not the following:

    A lack of maps (obviously its new but some maps are just annoying to see again and again), looking forward to the new map.
    The amount of idiots on the game, a lot of solo queue matches you will be put with idiots and quite frankly the vast amount of these people in a heavily team based game can really ruin it.

    What are the controls like? Is it reasonably fast and fluid? I've seen gameplay, but I've been put off by sheer size of the weapons taking up the screen.

    Are you talking about getting it on console because I have it on PC?

    The controls actually feel very good, one of the best multiplayer shooters I've ever played, you wouldn't think this was Blizzard's first shooter. I highly recommend it

    My favourite game would either have to be Borderlands 2, or Far Cry 3. I used to love Spyro on the PS1 and Mario Kart Double Dash on the GameCube

    The Sims 3, with the exception of when it crashed for absolutely no reason. I still prefer it to The Sims 4 just because of the open-world dynamic; that added so much and I can't understand why they took it away! (goes to a corner for a little cry )

    I absolutely loved New Vegas to death, and it's so disappointing to see the steaming pile of crap that Fallout 4 is. New Vegas has to be either my first or second favorite game ever.

    Bethesda took everything that Obsidian did well with New Vegas, and Interplay/Black Isle did with 1 and 2 and just flushed it down the drain with Fallout 3 and 4.

    Why they even bother to try and market their games as RPGs and not as action games instead is beyond me.

    Lol I was reading this and legit thought for a second I had posted it and just forgot, couldn't agree more lol.

    Although I like fallout 3 more than you do (but hate 4 with a passion).

    Why? It's literally a shooter with a few RPG elements thrown in. The characters were just so bland and unmemorable and half the lore just didn't make sense.

    There are literally 2 endings.

    Todd Howard and his lies like 'Fallout 3 will have 200 endings' have been enough for me.

    Honestly, Todd Howard is just such a crappy game director. He made one good game (Morrowind) and then decided to just devolve everything from there.

    Bethesda should just leave Fallout alone, and let a competent group like Obsidian have free reign.
