Basically you run around doing things, and through these actions your skills will begin to increase in level. After a number of skills have increased, your character itself goes up a level. Every time you get a "character level" you select one of three things to increase: magicka (how many spells you can cast), health (health), or stamina (how long you run/how much you carry). You will also be able to choose 1 perk that will give you some sort of bonus in a skill. These range from things like +25% damage from that skill or the ability to get a "decapitation" animation.
Basically it's exactly like Fallout. How OP you are is more an effect of your perks than the actual level of your skills.
You can still technically get behind enemies if you increase literally no combat skills for 40+ levels, but it's way harder to do than in previous games. Enemies aren't scaled in the shitty ways of yore either; certain places have tough enemies, and other places have shitty weaklings. They do scale with you, but it's not like Oblivion where you can get 1-hit by some average Joe you tried to pick-pocket.
This sounds good, i think i will like this a lot more than the other games then, since i WANTED to get into them, i just didnt like all the level's theorycrafting i had to do.
Im a slight perfectionist, so when i gained a level when i didnt want to, it annoyed me, because of the consequences of gaining a few levels and not really having the skills needed to kill shit.
You can't beat that price, considering Skyrim offered me over 100 hours. It would probably offer me more, but I felt it was time to move on to my other holiday games after I got my platinum.
However, I would recommend Dark Souls first. It's about the same price. If you have a Ps3, I would pick up Demon's Souls as well.
Hmm, interesting, i might do this, but i've been itching to play Skyrim for a while
So I won't have to delete all your Skyrim topic related posts.
