I really struggled to get into Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, but it's a really good game once you get into it. I can't say the same for Skyrim.
I played it for about 10 hours, made my judgement that the combat system is still terrible in ES games, there's more running around to do than a lifetime of marathons, and a terrible UI that I can't really be bothered spending time modding away, although the UI alone is what made me hate the game so much.
I'm still trudging away in Dark Souls (best rpg to come out on current gen hardware, imho). I'm still desperate for an game that I can dump hundreds of hours into the way I used to with WoW/FFIX/RE4/CoD 1.
