I have it for xbox (though my xbox is currently being fixed) If you get it be prepared to put a hold on everything else in your life.

I still have morrowind and oblivion to finish, but I've had more than a few moments where I seriously had to constrain myself and not by Skyrim anyway.

I also struggled with Morrowind and could not finish. The game is exceptional but there is just too much time there wasted for no action. Oblivion is substantially more dynamic and I actually played through it and even got to maximal allowed level topping all the skills on 75-80% difficulty without cheats. It takes some time but it is playable at 1-2 hours per day after work. Morrowind requires considerable dedication.

It seems that Skyrim is somewhat similar to Oblivion in dynamics and should be possible to keep the job even if buying it albeit, it is better to buy prior to an anticipated vacation. Otherwise, consequences can be dire. I think I'll wait until summer and will decide then.

There are two other games which are probably even better. Mass Effect 3 seems to be quite good and there is also Kingdom of Amalur. I recently finished Two Worlds II which is also a great fun and is very dynamic. When I get home after work, I have an hour to spare and killing things in a mindless manner relieves a lot of stress.

I only perused Oblivion and enjoyed it but never got Morrowind. I definitely feel that skyrim is the main reason i'm now paying to have my xbox fixed whereas i'd have happily just continued playing Champ Man on my laptop!

I played Skyrim quite some hours and while the game is done really well, it gets kind of stale for me after maybe 2/3rd of the game. The dungeons/quests are more or less all the same and much of the storyline feels a bit like an interactive video.

Also the crafting system is too strong imho. Without grinding or cheating I had my optimal armor quite fast and I just judge drops from mosters and quests by their sale value now :/

Don't get me wrong, I had about 40-50 hours real fun with the game, but it seems to me like too much of the same.
