Bethesda has dropped all new details regarding their upcoming fantasy RPG, Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
I want to be able to slaughter the helpless little children.
It was something Bethesda talked about after the release of Oblivion. It will be interesting to see how they play a role in the world. The wind effects and talk about how the harvests affect the game world is cool.
Can't wait to see more of Skyrim..should be pretty epic.
You can't kill them unfortunately, if you really care about it...well...psychiatrist! Nah really, I know it brings more realism to the world, but it isn't necessary in any way.
It shouldn't be any different than killing the adults in the game. That said. I couldn't care one way or the other. I just love Elder Scrolls.
just a food for thought, To get a feeling of bethesda's attitude towards kid killing. On their forums if any topic gets on the subject of infanticide it is immediately closed. so in short, they don't tolerate it. But the forums is "rated T", watever that means.
Even if we can't mods will make it so we can :) It's not that I want to spend all my time in Skyrim killing said children, I'd just like to have the freedom to do so if I so wish. After all isn't that what the ES series has always been about? freedom of choice?
oh no...what are the pedos going to do to them IN-GAME. and no...killing children not fun * Hit them with their wooden stick they brought from the towns store with HP damage of 1+ * Loot there belongings and clothes, until they are naked. ( Items found , Teddy Bear , Lolly Pops ) * Drag them to the forest...then unspeakable teabagging...
@NobleGamer Goddamn too much information.
@NobleGamer That's not very noble...
The Noble part's ironic isnt it.
We can't kill the children? Fuck this. TGSI
On pc, mods will allow you to kill them and I'll be getting it on pc (powered by the GTX 600 Kepler) so killed they will be.
I think that that's the reason developers have never put children in these kinds of games before.
Going to be great!
Let the pedo flood gates open!
PC Modders are gearing up already
This game has nothing but excitement for it!!
NOOOOOOO! Children are evil, EEEEEVIIIIIL!.
If children are going to be a part of the elder scrolls world than I think you should be able to kill them. We can kill every other living thing in the game, why are the so special? At the very least we should be able to knock them out for a while.
Because the ESRB says so.
You couldn't kill children in Fallout 3, so I highly doubt it'll be possible in Skyrim.
IM just saying...but why would you want to kill a child?? Thats kindof twisted if you ask me, even in a video game.
Why would you want to kill anybody, murder's murder from that point of view. If it doesn't appear in game as an option (and I seriously doubt it will) it'll be a political choice not a moral one.
It;s not "Why would you want to kill a child" There is nothing conncted with it that you will do that. Allowing children to die in F NV or F3 it would mean for me same thing as in F1 or Fallout2. In bar you should not use granades because some kid will die and i will feel bad. That is IMO the reason. Second "in video game" - that is where problem lies. And even if we don't apply video game sticker on it.. Also, Why child death is more important that any other death ? Not showing consequences of your actions in games are IMO more a crime that allowing children to die in games. Allow to kill a child in a game but show it with consequences. Some mother will cry, everyone will despise you etc. You thinking i asume is based that some people can think that is fun to kill children in real life but going your way what about those people who are like that. Oh i shoot that kid and he is alive i will try that tomorrow with my dads 9mm on my friends. It's stupid ? But why it isn't stupid other way (your way) ? Not showing consequences is same reason why there are wars like IRAQ.
God says murder is bad and we should not be the baddies but the goodies. Oh wait, there is no God.. Kill what you will.
It always feel stupid to me that children are uber NPC type. At least Fallout1/2 dealt with that in some way giving you child killer perk and big minus to karma. Also i don't agree that every one of us will just look for killing them anyway. Hell, playing RPG like F1/2/3 i don't like to kill inoccent ciwilians. As of Oblivion engine it could do children because Fallout 3 had them ant it was the same Gamebryo engine.
hehe guess who is gonna control the economy by burning cornfields XD and why wouldn't lock picking be back....its what made sneaking around in Oblivion even more fun....real question should be will the skeleton be back
I love it when kids are in the game. But only if you are able to kill the shit out of them. That was always fun to do in Fallout and Fallout 2.. I miss it in 3 and vegas. It's always fun to play as an evil piece of shit in games because, at least for me, I am the opposite in real life. Nothing makes the city guards come after you more than if you kill their kids.
Can I just give a child a sword and send him off to fight the dragons for me then? Hell, if they can't die, we should take advantage of that! Also, I don't agree with being able to kill children, however they should react to being attacked and maybe have everyone in town attack you if you are aggressive to children.
I didn't kill civilians on purpose in oblivion, I am just saying if my arrow should miss my intended target and a child found it instead it should die. Just like in real life.( I know we are just talking about a game)
They definitely won't allow kids to get hurt. Fallout 3 did the same thing. I don't think game developers need to go down that road anyways...Theres plenty of adults in these games to fight.
I definitely don't agree with killing kids, but it really should be added to the game. AND if you do kill one, there will be major, major BAD consequences!
Finally my dream of becoming a pedobear will come true.....
