I don't mind about the time it takes to finish a game, as long as it is enjoyable. Good story, good graphics, simple fighting controls.
I hated the gates in Oblivion
and hope to never have to go through one again. Dragons I can handle.
I have pre-ordered Skyrim
on the strength of all the happy hours I have spent playing Oblivion
, Fallout 3
and Fallout New Vegas
. I hope they won't let me down.
