Hehe, actually i did get to play the beginning last year and was already on my quest exploring the world after creating my character and aiding this guy fight off some enemies through underground caverns as we dodged a dragon that was destroying the place they had you captured at then visiting his family in a small village but then my PS3 tanked and crashed, lol, i got it fixed now but i'm currently playing other games (Mass Effect 3, GTA V, etc.). When i'm ready again i'll step foot back into it's world as Skyrim seems like a really big game that'll require all my attention away from other games, lol!!
Yeah, that's the beginning when you have to escape from Helgen Unfortunately, Skyrim tends to crash sometimes, so save a lot. Mass Effect 3, yeah! Loved that one. I'm glad I played it after they released the extended endings.
I've heard of the tech issues with it so thanks for the heads up! ...Mass Effect is definitely 1 of the best game series i've ever played, simply amazing, i've downloaded an alternate ending for it as i heard many were upset with Bioware for the lame original ending.
