    If you plan to buy Skyrim for the PC and have "Steam" (its free anyway, I suggest grabbing it regardless) there is usually a Summer sale (late June, Early July I think) and I bet the game will be on sale. It was on sale in December; believe it was 33% off, which is quite a big chunk for a pretty new and expensive game. Course, you will have to wait a month.

    Skyrim is extremely entertaining, a favorite of mine. It will literally last a month or two, just doing the quests. Much, much more if you go out and explore and just dick around.

    Haven't gotten far enough in D3 to say anything about it.

    I would pick Skyrim, it's much more to do there than in Diablo III. I mean in Diablo all you do is fight the same things over and over while choosing to do it more difficult each playthrough. While in Skyrim there are tons of sidequests that brings something new. A tip is to focus on doing all sidequests before you finish main ones.

    OT: I'd say Skyrim, despite both being amazing games. It has more content and challenge to it. It's not as linear as Diablo.
    skyrim has no challenage compared to inferno. Id say D3 but its summer soon so wont be playing any games much a little D3 here and there over the summer and MoP in the fall

    If you had to choose one over the other, which would you pick?

    Lol is this a real question? Anyone who thinks D3 should be picked over Skyrim probably needs to have their gamer card revoked. Skyrim is so far superior to Diablo 3 that trying to compare the two would be laughable.

    Both of them are decent. If you can afford both then might as well get them both. Out of the two I would choose Skyrim easily though. I still play Skyrim to this day from time to time, I'm already getting a bit bored of Diablo 3 though.

    This. You have a couple of months, and you're likely to get burnt out on one or the other...so have BOTH!

    Now granted, there ARE a lot of recurring motifs with Skyrim's dungeons and outdoor encounters, at the same time as there being fewer actual enemy types in Skyrim as opposed to even Diablo 1 (If you shave it short on both ends and say that all enemies that behave identically ARE effectively identical), there is a LOT more story content, and with a LOT more depth, than all three Diablo games combined.

    It all comes down to what you prefer from your games.

    Diablo, and indeed ALL blizzard games, are geared for min/maxing, number crunching, elitist, meta-gaming, non-role-playing gamers. Very similar to sports.

    On the other hand, Skyrim is the kind of game that would never, ever, EVER be balanced and fair for any two players to ever cooperate in. Because it's designed to have incredible visuals, and lots of content via writing, the donkeying around with numbers aspect is so easy to manipulate a simian could abuse it and become overpowered.

    So, there you have it, are you left brain or right brain? Left wing or Right wing? Artistic or Pragmatic? Thinking or Feeling?

    Except in combat.

    I mean, I think Skyrim's combat is good, even enjoyable in short bursts, but it wears thin incredibly fast. Compared to the constant expanding power curve and complexity of D3's encounters, I'd happily recommend D3 over Skyrim for anybody who values combat over story.

    Both are Great. Both get old after a bit. Both have there own set of perks. Both have there own play styles. Get both. What one first? Flip a coin.

    D3 for 20 hours story lots of looting and grinding and you can go co-op wich is fun
    Skyrim for lots of exploring, terrible story, very boring combat system,but you can be whatever you want to be, decent side quests, not very interesting characters, lots of bandit killing and boring dragon fights.

    Skyrim by a fucking mile. Skryim has the better story, better VO, bigger world, better immersion, better ability system, has mods, and works offline.

    Skyrim is the better option. I don't doubt Diablo 3 is good, but for game longevity Skyrim on the PC is in a completely different league than Diablo.
    Mage T13 is alright, I guess. It's a bit bland and doesn't really say Mage but there is nothing that looks really bad about it...

    Except that it as a clockwork, orange set.

    You can get both for free if you're willing...

    But I would personally choose skyrim if I had to choose one.

    Also why would I want to go outside and be in direct los of a giant fusion nuclear reactor in the sky that is 100s of times larger than earth and is constantly spitting out deadly radiation that literally changes your skin's color (COOKING IT). I will stay inside where there is minimal chance of having my skin crack apart just for being in line of sight.

    I find games like Skyrim boring after 15 mins particularly because its not online.

    Diablo 3... or Guild Wars 2 lol

    +1 for Skyrim

    I'd pass on D3 altogether and just get Torchlight 2 if you're into that genre.
    ^ The above should be taken with two grains of salt and a fistful of "chill the F* out".
