    Is anyone else here really obsessed with Skyrim like me?
    And if so, what's your favorite race and why? Do you prefer melee weapons or magic? What's your favorite spell/weapon and why? Do you favor Imperial or Stormcloaks?
    Sorry for so many questions, I just like to know. And like I said, I may have a slight obsession.

    I love the Elder Scroll games, replay them many times.
    I've come to love playing Nords, not for any game bonuses but because they seem like a strong, durable race.
    Wepons, I'm always getting stealth kills.
    A bow, great for long range and stealth kills.
    Neither? Every time I replay the games I kill more and more NPCs; I am a devout follower of Sithis in those games.

    Argonians or Khajiit. Because beast races are quite epic
    Melee weapons, hands down. I've tried magic, not a fan of it
    Enhanced Dwarvern Crossbow (Dawnguard expansion)
    Stormcloaks. Because the armour looks sweet and the voice actor for Ulfric is real good...

    Argonians; they most resemble the dragons
    Melee weapons. Longswords to exact. I like bows too.
    Firebreath because dragons o3o
    Neither. Choosing a side ends up with someone's kids either in the streets or locked in a basement and that makes me feel bad XD

    I've actually only just bought the game recently, but I'm already obsessed with it.

    Khajit is my favourite race, I love their appearance. Nothing better than a cat-like race. :)
    Melee weapons.
    My favourite weapon so far is the bows, love using them for distance/stealth kills. Haven't really tried magic much yet so I can't comment on my favourite spell
    Neither. I've barely even played the storyline, I'm always too busy exploring the mountains and landscape.

    I just realized I never posted mine.
    I personally like Khajiit the most, I like the way they look, I like their race's story, etc.
    I much prefer melee, I really like The Mace Of Molag Bal, and I prefer crossbows over regular bows.
    And My first character is a stormcloak. I wasn't extremely interested in much of that though, I may have my second character do something else.

    I like all of y'alls answers. ^-^

    When I played, if I HAD to pick a preset race i usually did Breton. When I was able to run the Editor I made my own races though.

    Argorian, what else a dragon could pick? ^^
    Melee, magic in skyrim feels a little weak compared to its mana cost.
    I like 1h swords because of their speed, critical hit and backstab potential if pure fight start to make me bored. I don't remember names but for most of the time I used that daedric light-making sword, sometimes glass sword and in the end made by myself dragonic 1h-sword + some dmg enchantments, entire dragon light armor as too. Favorite spell...heal ^^' I love having sword and heal but it's very annoying when I can't block with a sword if I have something in my second hand like heal or other spell. I don't like shields, I feel a little...em..."fatty" when I have one. The only game where i was using shields for real was Dark Souls...but I'm learning to roll anyway.

    The last question is difficult. I like rebellions in general and I feel good taking a part in them but if you ask citizens about stormguys they always complain. Well, it's more like "I WANNA BLOOOOOD" and you don't actually care what will happen after that little war. This is unhealthy behavior and it's visible when everything ends because "what such a blood-demanding beast like me will do next?" and then comes some kind of depression. But hell, I love those temporary heart calls even if consequences of stopping are overwhelming. Probably this urge is what I have from my draconic life.

    The imperials are bringing peace and order which citizens really likes if you ask them. They are fine in general and what they doing is very understandable if you find it out by working for them. But helping them feels like lame duty, you do things because it must be done ect.

    I don't know what to do. Follow a wild heart and join stormbros and become a beast, butcher because i love it? Or listen to my mind and join empire and stop Ulfric's madness but always feel "empty" inside? Aghh It feels like my draconic wild nature and my peaceful human side are fighting inside me.

    Okay, tough one here. I'm not a racist or anything (ha, what?) but I tend to pick Imperials. I almost, almost feel like a racial bonus is cheating to a degree. I am wrong, of course, but I don't really care enough about it one way or another to argue. :) The Imperials look the least pockmarked or something. I don't know why it matters because we so rarely see our character again anyway.

    I am most assuredly a bow and dagger person, being a Roguely sort of bloke. A bow is like that gift that lets you reach out and touch someone. Lethally. I am definitely all about that stealth game. I will reload a quicksave over and over again until I get the ideal outcome. If I don't, it means I have grown lazy or drowsy and might stop playing for a bit.

    I find that I almost never use any potions except healing or mana potions. It's bothersome to me. I want to use Restoration magic to heal myself, but sometimes it's too slow. I don't mind multiclassing a Rogue / Healer, if that's a thing, but as they say on the internets, ain't nobody got time for that. Yes.

    As for any loyalty on my part, I have gone fully down both paths, I think. I was probably more impressed by the Empire's side of things, but I tend to be a Stormcloak in my heart. Sadly, I play with my brain. That just does its own thing mostly. :)

    My favourite race to play as is Orc, I really like their aesthetic. Although I feel like I'm letting the racial bonus go to waste because I like to hide somewhere and snipe enemies with a bow haha.
    My favourite weapon is a daedric bow with a fiery souls enchantment. The first time I played I only used close, one-handed weapons, because I didn't trust my aiming abilities (I play on console) but then I discovered from watching my sister use bows that aiming really isn't as difficult as I thought.
    I always play imperial. The stormcloak motto of "skyrim is for the nords" really rubs me the wrong way, especially after you find out about the snow elves. Also, it seems like ulfric likes causing trouble for the sake of it, and doesn't even really believe in his own doctrine.

    I like playing as a Bosmer in Skyrim. I usually max out sneak and archery first, because sniping is a good way to take out opponents, and bows are the best attack against dragons

    I have an obsession with skyrim as well.
    Mainly my favorite races are,
    Khajiit
    Argonian
    Dark elf

    As for weapons or magick, I tend to have a even amount of the two, though I prefer weaponry; Ebony Daggers to be more precise. :)
    Most of my characters end up as assassins. So I normally always go hunting for Ebony Daggers to either buy or find.
    As for the stormcloak & Imperials, I have to go with neither, I don't particularly like any of them; I mostly just do my own thing. :)
    I could talk about skyrim all day, however I will end my rant here.

    To quote the French 'oui'.
    Hmm.. Kajiit, due to an ART mod
    neither.
    Dragonbone dagger (cause X12 sneak attack) and Revanent (cause anyone comes back to be my slave).
    Stormcloaks.

    I love skyrim. Beat it on xbox a long time ago and now I'm playing it on pc. I don't have a favorite race. As for weapons, I prefer weapons over magic, with my favorite weapon being the bow. My favorite spell is clarvoyance, as I have a terrible knack for getting lost.

    My favorite race is probably Argonian cause they have a very unique design.
    I prefer using bows but some melee weapons are always nice for close combat.
    I love using the fire spells cause you can do a lot with fire, like sneak attacks.
    I favor myself... :D I don't really care for stormcloaks or imperials, I think they are standing in my way of success. :cool:
    I'm not obsessed with skyrim, I feel it's quite boring but it's nice to play if I have a lot of time to spend, I do like that I can explore places and do whatever I want.

    Skyrim thread!

    My favorite race isn't playable, but I have a lot of Bretons, Bosmer, Argonians, and Redguards. I have a small set of 'standard' characters, but tend to end up with at least one or more of every playable race.

    I like to buildcraft a lot, so I have a few different builds. Right now my mains are a sort of 'arcane ranger' where I use Conjuration, Archery, and Single-Handed dual-wielding together; a very classic paladin with Heavy Armor, mace, and Restoration magic; and a thief styled character who alternates between sneaky utility type abilities and becoming a werewolf.

    As for the Civil War... neither! I've modded it so that I can join the Forsworn and ignore the Civil War quest as much as possible. With luck, someone will make a mod that lets you make peace between the factions.

    I'm not sure if I'd still be playing without the modding community, but with mods you can pretty much make the game into whatever you want, which makes it very fun to keep experimenting with.

    Gods I just got this game back and have played 13 hours in two days.
    Send help.
    I normally play as an Argonion because of the water breathing (though my latest character is a Kajiit).
    I typically favor the bow and sneaking because I'm not very skilled and it gets me killed the least. I also like conjuration and giving my follower of choice (usually Faendel) a stabbing implement to put a barrier between me and the enemy. If I have to fight something like a boss or an enemy has found me, I like to spellsword-ing (spellax-ing?)
    I honestly hate that you have to choose between the stormcloaks and imperials because I hate both of them. Stormcloaks are a bunch of conservative, racist, jerks that remind me of Trump supporters. Their slogan should be "make skyrim great again" but it's already pretty bad with "Skyrim for the Nords"
    The imerials are at least a little more inclusive, but they're still not great.
    I say torch 'em both.
    Normally I pick Imperial.

    I'd send help but, honestly, I have a similar problem.

    Choosing a good follower is important! My paladin character has trouble with followers, because the default AI wants them to tank, but I am clearly the tank in this situation. I usually go with a good mage follower since that has good balance with a lot of playstyles.

    My favorite race is khajiit because I can make it look most like how I identify. :p Other races I like are dark elf and argonian, I've never played as anything other then those three.

    I favor stealth with a bow or dagger and use magic to help conceal me or summon creatures to fight for me.
    I tend to dislike combat. I'd much rather find a nice ledge somewhere to hide on and pick my enemies off with a bow, or sneak up behind them and take them out with a dagger in one shot. When that fails, retreat, hide somewhere and let my minions pick them off for me. :p

    I've never done the civil war questline so favor neither side.
