    If it's anything like Oblivion, there go another 200 hours of my life.

    Definitely interested. Any word if they're using the same engine or if they've migrated to id Tech 5?

    Ugh, as fun as Oblivion/Fallout were, it was ultimately uncormfortable playing on that engine. I hope they made some decent improvements to it.

    Would id Tech 5 really be suitable for a TES game anyway? Id engines are usually more geared towards smaller, discrete levels, rather than gigantic sprawling megaworlds. I mean, Gamebryo is buggy as hell, but if you consider all the stuff it has to deal with at once, not just streaming in graphics as you're walking around but all the pathing of NPCs and keeping track of all the little changes you've made to the world, its still kind of impressive. When its not crashing every ten minutes anyway.

    I hope they make the motionless staring conversations a bit more natural, though. They still kind of freak me out.

    PS. Also modding is really really easy in Gamebryo, so that's nice too, since there's almost always some stupid crap that needs fixing in Bethesda games.

    I loved Morrowind, but Oblivion got boring quickly for me. Definitely keeping my eyes on Skyrim! :)

    Well if they say they've made huge improvements over the FO3 (and Oblivion) engine, I'm fine with that.

    I've never known an Id engine game could even close to the size and complexity of the worlds in TES. Yes, I know it can do big landscapes now. I'm just not sure if its designed to manage a Bethesda-sized game world.
