Other than the size, they took a lot of care to create the world. My main gripe with Oblivion was that the art was very ugly and soulless. Everything was too clean and plastic. In Skyrim things look distressed and lived in. The voice acting is great, and the small visual effects, like snow blowing off of a mountain, or myst created by a waterfall are very well done.
I agree, every elders scrolls has trumped the past one. Skyrim is so vast and amazing, the details are very good. With some fxaa post injecting mods it looks even more stunning. This game has a long way to go with modding, and its off to a great start.
My biggest gripes though have to be with factions. I really wish they'd make a faction/coven of vampires and maybe even a daedric faction where you are given in depth quests and story lines with the suporters and worshippers of the daedra. As for vampire coven's, t would have been great to have a group hunting vampires where you can choose sides in the battle depending whether or not you become a vampire or not - assuming they make playing as a vampire better.
By far the biggest letdown was lack of a arena/ring. I loved being pitted in a cage match in Oblivion, with a gladiator costume and all.
I also enjoyed seeing stats like my fame and what not in the menus.
Overall i'm happy with Skyrim - I'm sure mods will fill in the gaps - especially once the kit is out.
