Holy shit this game is nearly 2 years old.
So for someone who hasn't played this game since 2011 and thought it was absolute mindless, soulless grey monotonus sludgey bullshit and the worst Beth game to date (yet still got 1000G), would there be any point at all in getting Dragonborn or any chance it could change my mind? I'm sort of in the mood for this kind of thing but I might just try to play one of Morrowind's expansions instead.
Depends. Personally, I don't think that Dragonborn is that great. The dragon riding is lack luster and as last DLC, it's a bit disappointing and in my opinion by far not on the level that Shivering Isles for Oblivion was. I guess many mods were released while you didn't play this game, though many just revolve around improving the graphics - something that is not really needed.
I agree with your sentiments. The stunning visualy aside, my overall experience in Skyrim was surprisingly unimpressive. The world is huge, the side quests are good but at no point do I feel like I care about it - it doesn't manage to create NPC's that you care for and your decisions have no real impact on the game world, aside from if Stormcloaks or Imperials roam around the cities.
And don't get me started on the horrible Dark Brotherhood questline. Uff.
