Two quick questions about skyrim:

  1. Can I continue to play I've completed the main quest? I'm pretty sure thats a yes.
  2. Will something significant have changed after the main quest is done, so that I should do my exploring first. Like in oblivion a city was destroyed pretty early and then the gates appeared all over making things more difficult.

I would focus on the second question, the first is already answered here:… – authenticgeek Nov 23 '11 at 7:34

  1. Yes you can, you can continue playing and complete all the side quests.
  2. There are no really significant changes like in Oblivion. For example even the dragons will still be around for you to hunt down. Without giving to much away, one of the small things that change is that NPCs will sometimes comment on your achievements during the main quest.

There is no such thing as "all the side quests" in Skyrim. Radiant / Miscellaneous quests randomly generate forever. – agf Nov 24 '11 at 6:25
And indeed, dragons stay around – Konerak Nov 24 '11 at 15:03

1.Yes you can. .If you're bored, just start collecting all the dragon priests and do quests for the daedric lords.

No worries, no change

Yes you can, there are many quests to do outside of the main quest line and don't worry te game is still just as fun, to be honest some of the other quest lines seemed as good or better than the main game.
