With the Elder Scrolls series, i tend to put in several hundred hours, with all types of character combinations. I normally start out with an Orc Warrior, simply cause i find it easier to SMASH my way through the game.
After familiarizing myself with the environment a little, i will try all the others, eventually.
I find that using a magik based character is a little tougher from the start, but is also more rewarding as you progress, and i tend to save that for last.
from what i've heard in the streets..., the smaller devices like the 3-DS, tend to cause headaches, but i have not heard anything similar to others, say the hame 3-D T.V. deal. Anyone remember Nintendo's Virtua-boy? Man, that thing would tear your head apart after 20 min. Hopefully improvments have been made on that part. Anywho, it will be bought, alot, enough to spark more interest from more companies as far as consoles and hand-helds go, at least initially. Final prediction - 1 1/2 years of strong sales, another 1 1/2 years of increasing disinterest, followed by all-around improvements making it the norm. 3-D is the standard by 2015 at the latest.
