Same here, but I do like some stuff about Skyrim.
The environment and exploration is fantastic.
The characters and story...meh, let them all die for all I care (not that I play that way of course, but none of them are particularly interesting.)
The overabundance of crappy items to pick up in the world could certainly go and I wouldn't feel terribly bad about it.
I can understand that people like to explore but for me personally it's all about the story, I think that is the reason I like dragon age more.
Games? Dragon Age: Origins was great - one of my favourites - but Dragon Age II was terrible and is in no way comparable to a great game like Skyrim.
After the mess that was DAII there's no way I'm going to pickup DAIII at launch and I'll skip it altogether if they continue to boycott Steam, just as I had to do / will do with Mass Effect 3, SimCity, Battlefield 3, Dead Space 3 and unfortunately Crysis 3 (though the other Crysis games were released on Steam so Crysis 3 might be okay). I have no problem with EA pushing the Origin platform - much like I buy games on Steam that use UPlay and GFWL - but I like to buy my games on Steam to keep them altogether. I'll continue to boycott EA games as long as they continue to boycott Steam.
I don't agree with you mate, I tought dragon age 2 was better than skyrim. Although I do agree that origins was much better.
