I keep hearing a lot COD players complaining how Skyrim is too hard, even on the easier difficulty settings, as compared to COD.

I would hope so, for a RPG should not be as simple as a shooter. Mind you, I’ve enjoyed a good run of Serious Sam and the likes, but there should be many more factors in to playing a RPG rather than just hand-eye coordination.

I can only hope the TES series never becomes too popular, as it may have to lose many of the qualities that make it desirable to its current fanbase to achieve popularity. i think it’s not smart to piss of your core,loyal fans.

See Dragon Age 2 for an example of a popular ‘RPG’ that became over simplified, dumbed down for the sake of convenience, for how can a more complex game appeal to the masses who seek only instant gratification and rightly so in some cases, for some people only have an hour a day or less to play games, so we might as well play COD, Serious Sam, Naked Beach Babes Volleyball (not an actual game, but it should be, damn it!) or whatnot.
