update: it's only been 14 days but looks like I'm 107 hours into Skyrim now. It held my attention after all. And holy shit I need to get a job.
I loved Solstheim and Dawnguard. The Dark Brotherhood was pretty funny. Haven't touched the civil war since I can't decide which side I hate more.
Also, lmao at the College of Winterhold, I gave it a proper chance because I wanted to bone Ancano and the whole questline ended anticlimactically right when I thought it was finally about to start. It was all so brief, bad and strange that I can't even be mad. I barely got to know anyone. That Psijic and the Synod walked me through little tasks like I was a kindergartener and then that nice grandpa declared me Arch-Mage as an afterthought in a casual conversation. What??>>30863
Infiltrating that Thalmor party was fun but I don't remember where the main quest went after that, it just dropped off my radar and my heart
