    I would like to see a multilayer system, not like an MMO, but more of an 'invite to server' kind of thing. It would be great if me and 2-3 other buddys could roam around the same world, do the same quests and such. But having it like warcraft would ruin it, which is why i'd stick to private servers.

    More types of destructive magic would be nice, they could make so much more than 3 elements with little effort.

    A new 'guard' system should be in place, where the victim of a crime would have to be in a certain distance of a guard to call them. It was always so annoying trying to murder someone in their sleep in their own house, then as soon as they wake up, Bam, 'STOP! pay the court a fine or serve your sentence'

    Serious gamers don't limit themselves solely to computers.
    They limit the types of games they play on consoles though.

    It very much depends on what kind of game you like. FPS aspect games are one of the few that generally work better with a controller. With regards to TES games, I would say that a keyboard is so much better to play it on, it makes it so much easier to control.
    You're saying first person games work better with a controller instead of mouse and keyboard?:confused:

    That's an unusual opinion. I don't think I've ever heard someone say that.

    I don't know whether to get a new PC for this, or just get it on console. Or just get it for PC and run it in low detail. My PC is a few years old now, so I don't suppose it will run it particularly well.

    For this whole console V computer thing. I got Fallout NV on PC after having oblivion/Fallout 3 on console and after the first day(3 hours playtime or so) i gave up with the mouse/keyboard approach...

    Grabbed my wireless 360 controller and hooked that up.

    Although i do have HUNDREDS of hours playing oblivon/fallout 3 with the controller so am probably just used to it.

    Thinking of getting this for PC atm, then i can get all the cool mods but my PC would only comfortably run it at med spec. Probably could run it at max but would i wanna risk cooking my pc?

    I'm not denying some kinds of games are better suited to consoles. But this, more complex, type of game considerably benefits from the mouse and keyboard.

    Simpleton. How often do you see pro gamers waggling retarded analogue sticks around in terrible attempts to aim.

    A lot of good information here about the wall that was seen in the teaser trailer, sounds like it is going to be fantastic.

    Never heard of such a thing. It would be like professional rally racing in a Sinclair C5.

    Who in their right mind would rather use a controller pad for FPS than the flexibilty of mouse and keyboard. Unless of course you are so incompetent you can't actually use a computer.

    I was hoping that they would make one set in Skyrim back when I bought Morrowind 9 years ago.

    Who in their right mind is unable to aim with an analog stick? Well, those without thumbs I guess, but apart from them, who?

    Clearly you have never seen footage of any halo tournaments. And before you say that they are not serious gamers, they are professional gamers and recieve a lot of money for winning.

    It's hard to deny that mouse and keyboard is the superior control scheme for FPS games, in the sense that it's easier to be faster and more accurate. If they allowed mouse and keyboard in those Halo tournaments, everyone would have to use it because there's no other way they could keep up with the other players.

    The advantage of controllers is that they are more convenient. A mouse and keyboard need a flat, stable surface at an appropriate height to be useful, where as you don't need anything for a controller.

    That is true, a mouse and keyboard does require more space. Games like Halo have been optomised for controllers. I have had this argument with someone before, saying that a mouse and keyboard was more superior and they made a valid point. If you are used to using a mouse and keyboard, a controller can seem slow and clumsy, but in the hands of someone who is skilled using a controller, they know and can use the lag movement lage to their advantage and fine tune the interface to maximum effect.

    But they would still be at a big disadvantage if they played against someone using a mouse and keyboard. I guess you could compare it to Formula 1 and Formula 3. With a capable driver a Formula 1 car would easily beat a Formula 3 car, even if the Formula 3 car was driven by the best driver in the world. That's why they don't compete together. For the same reason it doesn't make much sense for controller players and mouse and keyboard players to compete against each other.
