    Moderate.

    For the amount of time you have to put in this game and the dedication to get past the horrible lag, it's more than easy

    I would like to say its easy can be very easy. Put in 215 hours total but the gameplay probably around 160 hours. Despite couple glitches done it all in 1 playthrough. Losing a day of game play due to a glitch to join the theives guild and didn't do a hard save before the quest. Light lag couple hours before logging off for the day. To the last hour of game play the lag was terrible before logging off.

    Would anyone happen to have a save file from right before getting the 15th daedric artifact they'd be willing to share? I'm not wanting to do another playthrough the night before christmas for this one trophy.

    I voted moderate just for the simple fact of some of the bug's/glitche's. As for just straight game play it is rather easy.

    I was tempted to vote easy, but I upped it to moderate, because:

    * The game is one of the longest, if not THE longest, open world games released to date. It's even longer than it's predecessor, Oblivion, and at least twice as long as Red Dead Redemption. Fully exploring the world is an endeavor requiring multiple hundreds of hours, and as much as we might wish to believe that duration has no bearing on difficulty, it simply cannot be overlooked in games of such size.

    * The PS3 version is plagued by dozens upon dozens of bugs, which causes considerable frustration and adds significantly to the playtime required for platinum.

    The only problem I did had with Skyrim was the Thieves guild bug. I had to create an thief named Zod. He wasn't wearing black but still I love General Zod from Superman 2. Anyhow I finished all the thieves guild quest lines for it. It was solid quest line over all to me. Still not better than Dark Brotherhood but still all good. The lag was bad at times but resetting the game was able to resolve some of the issues along with the turn off Auto Saves. As far as the rest of the stuff it was moderate some spots tricky but still I'd get the expansions for it.

    I voted Easy. The Platinum is just time consuming. For those wanting to rush through this plat, just take your time and savor the game. It'll take you longer, but you will never forget the experience.

    Voted easy.
    I glanced at the Trophy Guide before I started, played well over a hundred hours & then looked at the guide some more. Didn't run into any quest breaking bugs/glitches, just stupid lag Time consuming, yes, hard, no.

    I played on Master Difficulty and not even considering you could play it on a lower difficulty I'd rate it 'very easy'. As mentioned many times, it's just time consuming but there is no trophy that really takes some skills to get, the only challenge in the game is not to run in any of the countless bugs and if you do, to find some exploits in order not to have to start from the beginning again - I couldn't finish one daedric quest because an involved person died during a dragon attack, I found a glitched daedric quest in which you could get two artefacts and so I could still get Oblivion Walker without having to start with a new character.

    Moderate.

    The length added difficulty (and fun) to the trophy getting, but the only problem mainly was bugs.

    Especially so on the Thieves guild trophy, and daedric artifacts.

    Moderate.

    The only thing that was hard about it was the time it took to complete, and if you were unfortunate enough (like me) to sell your thieves guild armor or get a glitched quest.

    2. Easy

    I think I'm just gonna vote this on all the Bethesda games I play.
    Took me 80 hours to get the plat on the moderate difficulty, it would take less if you feel like lowering the difficulty but I wouldn't recommend it.
    Happy dragon hunting!

    Easy.

    Aside from the weirdest glitches and bugs i have seen in games so far. And the time required to make it to plat.
    Like the game rebooting itself after 3 hours of play.

    Easy - But very time consuming and the Thieves Guild quests are so repetitive and boring, other than that a great game, although I did suffer from the game freezing every now and again and the lagggggggggggggg.

    I voted Easy,
    The only challenging parts of the game are that its time consuming and there is always the possibility of fatal glitch that could cause your entire save to be ruined.
