1. You mean going into the demon worlds? They don't have anything like that.

2. There are WAY WAY WAY more things to fight and way more content. This game is more enjoyable in every way.

3. I haven't encountered any but yes... because there are Daedra hunters.

4. There are a ton of factions. They aren't called guilds anymore though.

5. Yes the world is bigger. More importantly though.. within the huge world there is literally 3+ times more content. Unlike Oblivion where the world revolved around you at times.. in Skyrim everything and everyone does their own thing even without you.

6. Not sure on mini games yet. Haven't looked.

You answered your own question lol. The plot is about dragons and that's your "arch nemesis" if you will similar to the Daedra in Oblivion. Thanks for rep.

Yeah when you're walking around you can encounter random dragons.

As far as the arena goes, I haven't come across such a thing yet. I haven't been everywhere yet though. Theres lots of mini-quests and stuff you can do. There is still housing and its actually possible to get married.

Every medieval RPG should have two things. An arena and a brothel.

Bethesda leaves it up to the modders for the nudity and sex(regarding the brothel).

Got Conjuration to 40 using a trick. Just be near a red dot on map but don't get close enough for them to attack/see you... and keep spamming summoned weapons. Put it away, then create another. Every 1-2 summons= 1 level. First get Mage robes and put points into Conjuration skill that lowers cost of spells in conjuration. Also you NEED to put a point into increase bound weapon damage if you're a warrior/rogue wanting to use conjured weapons. Your weapon skill scales with conjured. Now I can summon a demon and a sick bow as a Rogue .

There is actually a LOT of cities I haven't been to. I guess thats because nothing has directed me to them.

This game is amazing.

Combine it with future mods and it could very well be a contender for the GOAT game.

My only complaint is I had to disable autosave to stop lag and decreased frame rates. I've learned to save extremely often so don't need it anyways.

Lol. So I went back to Marcurio as a companion. Mainly because he's just too damn powerful to pass up and me not having a caster in party is hurting my power a lot. I had Mjoll The Lioness as tank for a while but she's not the strongest. Stenvar is by far the best melee companion that I've tried so far and Marcurio is best ranged companion. Unfortunately I've killed Meeko and Vigilance on accident so I'm stuck with immortal dog that pushes you all over the place if I want a dog .

Right now I'm almost done with Thief Guild quests.

I find that the most common reason that I am reloading saves is not because I died but because I accidentally killed Meeko. I have probably wasted an hour or more redoing content just because that stupid dog died, but I love him too much to give him up.

I know ; (. I messed up bro. I killed both dogs! So now I'm rolling dogless because the stupid demon dog is annoying. I hate how easily those dogs are to kill for the player! I think I may start over again and exploit the glitch but this time go ranged instead....Like 99 range, 99 sneak, 99 pickpocket. Then do 1h after.
