8. Giving someone food just might help you become their friend quicker.

9. Do not hold on to so many things if you do not to run out of space.

10. Do not give up if you do not succeed at a challenge the first time. Go back, improve your skills, level up, and have another go at it.

11. Getting something else to do something for you will not teach you anything.

12. Do not just speed run through the main story. Sometimes the side quests contain the best content.

14. Do not use achievements as a means to judge someone's skill level, for you do not know how they obtained them.

15. Succeeding after multiple failures gives immense satisfaction.

16. Use character customization to its full advantage.

17. It is rare for a decision to affect you and you alone. Choose wisely.
