Skyrim doesn't have parallax, SSAO, true dynamic lighting. Many textures are low resolution... Game is poorly optimized like all TES games.

I am enjoying it right now. It's not perfect, but it's damn good. Once you switch some keys around so they are more like Oblivion/Morrowind and enable the shadow tweaks, water tweaks and fxaa. The world feels very real, very alive. I constantly happen upon NPC's doing their own thing, completely independent of me.
