I'm not sure if that's all scripted, but even if it's party Radiant AI, that's pretty impressive.

The world is huge and less focussed than Gothic, and the setting is different. These things are mostly subjective. I think I like Gothic's setting better, too.
Well seeing as how Gothic was released more than 10 years ago, I would sincerely hope that Skyrim is superior from a technical view.

One thing I'm a tad disappointed with though is the soundtrack. Granted there's a lot I haven't heard yet, but it's a little too "Morrowindish" to me. Don't get me wrong, I loved that style in Morrowind, but I thought Skyrim would be a little more…unique?
