I didn't like Oblivion but I love Skyrim because of the art style and the atmosphere, snow, ice, vikings, dragons. But without mods it would have become boring pretty fast.
And yes characters and writing is one of the big fails in the game.
Only because it worked for Skyrim, doesn't mean it works for other games. And again mods, and this time I don't mean overhauls or new stuff but just fixes, improvements and better graphics. If there is something that sucks in a Bethesda game (like the UI in Skyrim) you could bet there will be a mod that fixes it. BW unfortunately doesn't want their games being altered by mods. DA:O had some nice graphical improvements and other mods but since DA2 BW removed their mod tools.
They are new fans. Old fans didn't expect game which insult intelligence. Read this article: http://thenocturnalrambler.blogspot.ba/2012/02/skyrim-actually-kinda-sucks.html
And this article didn't mention the worse things.
Also if you wait for mods to improve certain segments, then you shouldn't pay full price for that game, and that game shouldn't have full price. But mods can't fix what is wrong with Skyrim.
Andromeda even in this state is better then Skyrim.
