Biggest regret in Skyrim

Skyrim is a very huge game, so it is only natural to create save points in long intervals. This however can break the game for most people. I have a lot of regrets in game that I wish made better, well thought out decisions.

My regrets:

Not being able to sneak roll. (I sneak a lot, and walk very slowly)

Not being able to improve magical weapons

Not obtaining one of the Daedric artifacts (I have the achievement now by exploiting the two artifacts glitch but still, would have been easier)

Killing Whiterun's Steward, Brill I believe his name was?

Following the Vampire storyline in Dawnguard


Siding with the Stormcloaks

Losing Belrand (Follower, and a damn good one too)

Storing all of my items in a random container, thinking I'll remember where it will be or that it will remain untouched. (Beginning of my game)

Not saving after 30 minutes + only to die by falling from a high area.

you can sneak roll, there is a perk to unlock it in the sneak skill tree.

what do you mean 'not being able to improve magical weapons'? you can improve them at a grindstone if you unlock the appropriate perk for it in the blacksmithing skill tree. there are some unique items that cant be improved though, but they are few.

you could always start a new save though, and make different decisions, though personally, the stormcloaks are my preferred choice and i only joined the imperials on 2 of my 10-ish playthrough(not all completed).

Maybe saving too much in my first game or whatever made the file go up to 19Mb and stop playing. Other than that, nothing at all.

Dawnguard allows Aela to infect you after being cured.

My regrets:

Killing Cicero

Killing that one daughter making her mother an hero so I can't complete or even initiate Blood on the Ice.

Putting perks into skills I don't use. Sucks they didn't give us a Perk reset ability.

Ocassionally I regret marrying Ysolda, but I'm fine with that. Funny how Fable did better with marriages than Skyrim.

The miscellaneous Bounties which can't be turned in because the Steward was forced out of their hold via Civil War.

Choosing Azura's Star over the Black Star.

Not making a new character to use the Book glitch to find a Legendary Dragon.

Depopulating Markarth because of the glitch with the Forswarn and Cidna mine.

Completing the Main quest right before 50. Odahviing is awesome and him not at his possible max level sucks.

I'm generally cool with mistakes and choices, but I despise I lose out on gameplay because the game glitches or I didn't see an advanced internet warning that Bethesda screwed up a quest which tied heavily with Faction quests.

My biggest regret is getting all achievements because since I got the last one I haven't played it since, eagerly awaiting "Dragonborn" so I have a reason to play again.

It wouldn't be a regret if they gave us the option to reset our perks.

My biggest regret? Finishing the game. Easily one of the most disappoint endings really. Rest of the game was good. Other regrets include buying Dawnguard and Hearthfire.

You should play ACIII, after that ending you'll think this ending was godly.

(EDIT)
Forgot to add my biggest game regret lol. That would be choosing a Breton. I regretted it so much that I deleted the save file and started a new one as a Nord, much better

Not completing the game wearing only a chef's hat and fighting bare-handed. Next playthrough, here I come!

I can see the headlines now: "Naked Orc-chef punches bear to death, terrorizes Whiterun"

My biggest regrets are making my current main character an imperial, I like the Breton race best race and also my main characters perks aren't how i would like them.

Bretons are awesome. You must have been doing it wrong.

I should have clarified it's not that I dislike the Breton race, it's that I always try to stick with the theme of the game.
I was a Breton in TES II: Daggerfall, because it was based in High Rock. TES III: Morrowind I chose a dark elf as it was based in Vvardenfell, TES IV: Oblivion I chose an Imperial so it seemed only fitting that in TES V: Skyrim I should pick a Nord.
I didn't even realise I'd picked a Breton until it was too late, so I carried on with him for a while and eventually just decided to start again.

On another note, I'm hoping that if they make TES VI it will be based in Elsweyr

Ah, okay. That makes sense.

I originally created an Argonian character for Skyrim since I thought it would make more sense for a lizard to be the "Dragonborn", but I didn't like it, so I restarted as a Breton. I'm more of a magic user anyway.

Elders scrolls is the only RPG so far where I haven't chose a mage class every time. I was a mage in Dragon Age 1 & 2, I also preferred being a mage in Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning and I was a biotic in Mass Effect
