I'm starting to get really excited about playing this. I've tried a few of the low budget knockoffs lately (Risen, that one in which you can turn into a dragon.) and I haven't been impressed at all.
It is looking utterly gorgeous and I can't wait to explore it. I'm even considering upgrading to a Radeon 6870. I can't remember when last a game made me want to upgrade.
So are there any other un-cynical internet people out there who are still capable of getting excited about a game and is it this one? Also, can we keep the whining about it not being some contrived morality simulator to a minimum please. It's ok for a game to be about exploring a beautiful and interesting world.
For anyone interested here is a forum thread discussing system specs : http://forums.bethsoft.com/index.php...ardware-guide/
