I am currently 19 hours into the game. This game is incredibly addictive. I cannot remember being genuinely interested in a single player game like this (maybe Fallout 3). I am at the point where i am overwhelmed with characters and stories. That's not a bad thing for me. I at least am aware of the main quest. I took a break from the main quest to level up with some side quests. I am currently level 17 (17 1/2). I am trying to level up my light armor after hearing how efficient it eventually becomes.
