No More Skyrim, Now On To Elder Scrolls VI?

VG Republic Writes: The memories, they really are something special. Just look back to the day that it first touched your finger tips, you gently tugged on the wrapper, slid that magnificent case out, and cracked it’s virgin plastic shell. You caressed that perfect circular disc and examined the label before flipping on your system of choice and slipping it inside. For that one moment you know that bliss is hitting your every nerve and your next days, week, months, and even years will be filled with pure ecstasy. In that moment you entered the realm of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. The better part of two years later Bethesda is calling it quits with Skyrim and moving on even if you’re not quite ready. (PC, PS3, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Xbox 360)

Fallout 4 before TES VI!

I'm a HUGE Elder Scrolls fan, and as much as I'd love a new title, I agree with this. There's still tons of amazing Skyrim Mods hitting PC that will tie me over until the next game, but I really want to see Fallout 4.

Couldnt agree more! Love both Fallout and Elder Scrolls, but i'm super desperate for a new and better Fallout. TES VI sounds like a good idea though...
Skyrim was the worst one they've made so I hope they can somehow not make the next Elder Scrolls suck like that one did. Their Fallout games are always terrible as that's now a dead franchise thanks to Bethesda candyassing it.

Skyrim was disappointing but still a good game in my opinion.

Why did it disappoint you? IMO it was the best western RPG this gen.

I was going to start typing out a comprehensive argument, but then I saw that your avatar is new Dante and I can only assume that you're trolling or have horrible taste.

Skyrim is spectacular. As was Fallout:NV.

Sorry man, couldn't help myself!!
MrAnderson  +   863d ago
You have no taste, the fact you're basically role playing as new dante proves that, and FYI Skyrim was excellent, buggy but excellent, no different to Morrowind and Oblivion being buggy as balls too, and for the record, arena and daggerfall weren't amazing.

Oh well....Fallout 4 is next :D

Then after Fallout...Elder Scrolls 6. I hope to god they will set it in ValenWood and merge the map with Elsweyr. Then the DLC can be set of Summerset Isles. All next to one another.

too much places for one ES game. I rather they focus on one providence and make it as dense and deep as possible.
Root  +   864d ago
Not really because next gen tec will make it so they can make the map even bigger and add more stuff into it.

Valenwood and Elsweyr are small, look on the map and you can see that together they make the place the same size as Skyrim
elhebbo16  +   864d ago
I just dont want them to speed the series up by making a game with 2-3 providence in one world map. i rather they just stick to one even if valenwood and elswer small. technically cyrodil is a bit bigger than skyrim but in-game its about the same.
Root  +   864d ago
The thing is though it won't speed up the series at all, in fact having these two locations together opens some interesting plot points because of the war the two providences had with one another in the past, if the story was based around new tensions rising with both places it would be nice to do quests in two totally different settings.

From the tall trees and massive forrests of Valenwood to the swamps and tropical planes of Elsweyr. With Skyrim you mostly just had Snow most of the time and it got a little boring.

Absolutely. :) Go try it out!

How about something that isn't Fallout or Elder Scrolls. How about something Cyberpunk or something Mass Effect eque from bethesda
uncharted56  +   864d ago
Its been over two years since the last Fallout. With the past two iterations they have created beautiful worlds and told a great story. And they are now moving even forward in time with the next one if rumours are to be believed. I want to see what they can do with their new engine for the high end PC hardware and next gen consoles. I am hoping it will be amazing.
delboy  +   864d ago
Nah, a RPG must be in fantasy environment, with magic and stuff.
It's my opinion, I like Star Trek and sifi, but couldn't get into Mass Effect.
I know lots of people adore it, but for me ME was stupid space sope opera.
But I like Fallout, post apocalyptic just works in this game.
ZodTheRipper  +   864d ago
@Theo1130: But not from Bethesda. I'd rather like them to stick to their franchises and just expand them.
Theo1130  +   863d ago
Why? People whine about Cod and its annualization, but they're ok with other studios being stuck on the same franchises and churning them out. I rather have a super creative team like bethesda working on new stuff.
KillrateOmega  +   864d ago
I'm not sure how they're going to top Skyrim (I'm talking specifically about the realm of TES, not Fallout or anything). The game was just so damn epic.

It had dragons (EPIC!), shouts, a very well-expended vampire lore, a Vampire Lord form, werewolves, Nordic culture, daedric lords, dwarven mystery, a fucking civil war, a fight with the first dragonborn, Solstheim, your very own customizable house, painting the sky blood-red, arrows to the knees, etc.

They better bring their A-game with the next game, because it's got some big shoes to fill. I wish them the best though, after all, I'm the one who'll be playing it :)
