    That game has some of the absolute worst garbage combat.

    Try Dark Souls instead. A vastly superior game.

    Fanbois are funny.

    The game world is great. The depth is great. But a HUGE part of the game is trash, the combat.
    Bethesda RPG's are so far behind all of their competitors when it comes to melee combat it's funny. No targeting system, no lock on for multi enemy encounters. Zero weight to the impacts. Absurdly slow for most weapons.

    It's just trash.

    They will be announcing a new ip, a scifi rpg called Starfield in June at E3. Let's just hope it's on a new engine because the Skyrim/Fallout engine is antiquated and far behind the competition.

    Demon Souls
    Dark Souls
    Dark Souls 2
    Bloodborne
    Dark Souls 3
    NioH
    The Surge
    Dragons Dogma
    The Witcher 3
    Deus Ex series

    All action rpg's with vastly superior combat. The last one is with guns though.

    You’re not the only person to have shared these concerns with me. I agree in some ways about the flaws in combat, but the rich universe appeals to my nerdy side.

    Total side note: I am not sure how much you like RPG/dungeon crawly board games, but Gloomhaven is pretty awesome.

    I haven't played a board game in decades. Considered buying this one to compliment the digital games.

    I absolutely love Skyrim, and keep finding myself returning to it. I've probably put in 400+ hours, and I've never bothered finishing the main quest.

    Grampa is right about the melee combat, though - which is why I always play either destruction magic or archer.

    I think one of the major issues with melee combat in Bethesda games is melee combat does not translate well to first-person games.

    I've been playing it in VR, and the melee is even worse there. Like you say, I've just dumped most of my XP into magic and archery. With the remainder going to stealth.
