    I have played Skyrim and Oblivion for like 30 mins each then got bored and never went back. I do have Skyrim on my PC so might give it a chance in the holidays.
    In that case - mod it until it crashes :mmm:

    But seriously, having the console and commands on the PC make things SO much easier - like travelling before you discover places. Unless you like running around :lol:

    How long would a 2,000 word essay take to write in hours?

    This is with breaks included.
    Would take me about 5 hours, but obviously it depends on you.

    I'm a console peasant at heart so will only usually play on the PC as a last resort or if I've already played the game on console and want to use mods

    This obviously depends on topic and nature of the essay - if it's a half an Extended Essay for example, it would not take you 'just 5 hours' - if you wanted a crap grade, then it would. Similarly, if it's something you know really well it'll obviously take less time.

    If I've planned beforehand I write 700 words per/hour ish. I then added quite a bit to that for checking/rewording. But I'm a speedy typer.

    Ok, either I beat my old PB or got faster I could maintain it for quite a few minutes I reckon - 1 minute is not that tiring, but it does kind of get boring...

    If I did a test where I had to type out a piece of prose I would only get around 110-115 I reckon

    the only one who can beat me is me, apart from the other 0.36% of people :lol:

    I've been used computers since I was like 4, and I don't know how I became this quick but I heard if you want to improve at typing, type as fast as you can, don't worry about mistakes, and you'll become used to it. Something like that. Muscle memory is a pretty incredible thing. :dontknow:
