One step forward:
I’m 11 hours into Skyrim, right now (level 9) and boy… coming from WoW it seems I’ve been playing a videogame for small children, really.
One step back:
Skyrim dinamically adds side-quests on the go, stuff changes based on what happens… That’s almost impossible in a persistent online world, shared by thousands of players. Unless you instance something of course.
EVE just ‘dynamically’ added a pretty awesome side-quest for my Corp last night; we got war-decced. Time to hide in our instance!
