Wait, do we consider TES/FO FPSes?

no, I just meant I figured people who play FPS games might be better at accuracy to begin with, since you pretty much HAVE to use ranged weapons as your primary in those games. I'm not that skilled at targeting bad guys quick enough, but with melee you can just kind of click wildly in the general area of the enemies and eventually hack them to death.

Fallout is technically a FPS in that you shoot in the first person, but really it's more of an RPG. But you do need the FPS skills I was referring to? So you can take or leave that one.

Yeah, I tried Ghost's stealth archer build in skyrim. It was so overpowered it was ridic. crouch, fire arrow, get stealth multiplier one shot kill, don't bother with a rinse, just repeat until the end of the cave.

Then again, I went back in, with a few mods to fix magic, and as a pure cloth only wearing mage, balancing illusion and conjuration, skyrim also became easy mode. Invis up, cast AoE hostility spell. As all the dudes are killing each other, drop a flame atronach into the middle. Laugh all the way to the bank.


I wonder if he's one of those people that brags he beat the game 8 hours after launch because he skipped every cutscene and sidequest and went for complete complete complete as fast as possible

I've done the whole main quest and the side quests (except, obviously, the radiants). I could have made it last longer if I quick-traveled less, but I did explore the whole map pretty much, I just don't feel the need to hoof it everywhere if I've already explored an area. I'm an achievement whore, though. Right now, I'm only missing 15, and most of them are related to the Dragonborn DLC, which I don't have.

Fallout 3/NV do have the whole VATS thing, which can work for people that don't like/don't have FPS skills.

fps skills do you zero good in fallout. Even with every accuracy perk in the book, its still pretty much spray and pray without VATS.

I've never finished Skyrim.

I never finished the main quest of Oblivion even though I put probably 200 hours into it.

Cool story, bro.

Everyones using 200+ year old weapons, that have been shit-patched together over and over and over again, so their accuracy may not bet the best :p

I'm glad I save a ton, because I completed the main quest in Oblivion, which then CLOSES ALL THE DAMN GATES and that's a bummer, so I went back and restarted from right before I finished so I could go around and play in the planes of Oblivion some more.

although i do remember having one gun, some sort of magnum i think that i could sneak up behind supermutants and if i was within 15 feet of them or so, oneshot them in the head (without VATS. I dont like VATS).

You really don't know Ghost that well if you think this.

This was actually why I never went very far in the main quest.

I did so much exploring, raiding, and side quests that I didn't feel like I was missing anything.

edit: Same with Skyrim right now. I'm basically just wandering around the Northwest finding locations and then clearing them out, been doing that for about a week now.

Even the "get close to what you're aiming at" bit can be tough for some, VATS is a nod to the old timey turn based players to at least give them some enjoyment of the game.

I occasionally used it, when I was feeling lazy.

We should share our skyrim maps, compare notes on who's covered what :lol:

is there a good way to get a pic of it? I tried zooming out as much as possible so I could take a screenshot, but then everything just becomes a jumble of bullshit.

I only bothered with it for sniping, or very early game when ammo was critical.

Otherwise, I open up with a big boy at range and downsize from there.

The fact those big lizard fuckers were immune to atom bombs pissed me off to no end.
