Yes, I’m still playing Skyrim. At this point I’ve played through the main plot as a fighter, going up to level 30, as a thief/assassin going up to level 40 (at a higher difficulty), and I’m presently playing as a mage. My character level is 51 and I’ve maxed out the Destruction Magic, Smithing, and Enchanting skills. I haven’t decided whether to play through to the end of the main plot or not.
At this point my conclusion is that playing Skyrim as a fighter is tremendously easier than as a thief or a mage. Playing as a mage is the most fun, though. My mage is powerful enough at this juncture to shoot dragons out of the sky with thunderbolts.
I haven’t decided whether to complete the main plot as a mage or not. Now that I understand the game better than I did the first time around I’m tempted to crank the difficulty all the way up and start over as a fighter, concentrating on two-handed weapons and archery.
Two bits of advice: you’ll improve your enjoyment of the game substantially if you pick up some lockpicking skills early on and you can make (or improve) better equipment than you can find or buy. That means that smithing, enchanting, and alchemy skills are darned handy.
