Check out some new gameplay footage of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
More videos at the source.
Is that a child in a red shirt running past you..... Theres children in Elder Scrolls now...about time. Although I bet you can't harm them like the ones in Fallout. Don't get me wrong killing children is wrong but this is a computer game. Some of the brats in Fallout were annoying, am I the only one who wanted to blow Mayor Maccready's head off in little lamp light. Anyway it would bring up more punishing consequences, like you go to prison longer, you gain a bad name around Skyrim if you've been caught, the Father/Mother will try and kill you after a while...randomly, they could be a small challenge aswell. It would just make things more realistic
You're right though. No killing children, the only real reason to do it is because it's realistic. Bethesda. Bethesda just say "NO, WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO DO THAT?!?". Obviously they just don't want the heat of the media.
Yes, I can agree with that, their statement to gay marriage was "We didn't think it was special, we just didn't want to make a big deal out of it". So nice. ^^ To the topic of killing them: One word: Mods. Of course, the stuff you described (parents coming after you) would be a little harder to pull off... Anyway, I was one of the lucky ones at Gamescom (who accepted waiting 1.5 hours to see it - I really got kinda lucky there) who saw a 30 minutes presentation of this game, and when I saw children I honestly was kinda surprised - in a positive way of course. I loved the difference it made to Fallout 3 compared to Oblivion. Quest from children who are alone because their parents have been killed for whatever reason, blah blah. Amazing.
I'm more stoked for Skyrim than ever before. The other vids at the source were awesome. AWESOME I tells ya!
I'll probably end up killing everyone anyway. Out of boredom, obviously... :3
Sometimes realism isn't worth the tradeoff. Not even GTA has allowed you to murder kids, as that would get the game an instant AO rating and end up with it banned from many retailers and some countries altogether. Honestly, I'm just glad that the game has children at all. As long as they run away when attacked, I doubt them being unkillable will be that big of a deal.
you could sell them as slaves in fallout though, that was good enough for me.
game going to be amazing and can not wait, but the video its just player speaking to a NPC not somthing to get hyped about haha
Either there are children or his character is a very very short person. But yeah i think there are children
All skyrim gameplayes are amazing and this one of course.
Amazing? All I saw was dialogue trees, and I couldn't even make out what they were saying.
That's true, but somehow even that got me very excited. Just seeing how much smoother the interaction is than in Oblivion.
Looks incredible, November needs to hurry up
That looked like a midget being chased by a dog, not a kid....
PC mods will allows children to be killed and killed they will be! Muwahahahahahaha!
*sigh* this is the only time I wanted to play on PC... SO I COULD KILL THOSE ANNOYING BRATS!!! WITH THOSE ANNOYING SQUEEQY LITTLE VOICES LIKE IN COD LOBBIES!!!
Comments like this one are exactly why they WON'T be killable, and probably shouldn't be. You just compared a digital recreation of a child to kids in a real live videogame lobby. Your comment insinuates that you want to kill the kids you hear with squeaky voices when you are playing CoD. While they annoy me, killing them is never the thought that goes through my head.
@GT_Ken lol. you actually took me seriously?
Yeah vyke3, don't make comments like that on the internet or you'll scare the developers from actually putting it into the game...say nothing, pretend it isn't a big deal, and then when they think it's safe, and they think we'll play with their features responsibly...BOOYA! Take that ten year old...
This game is starting to get me all giddy!
I wish there was layered damage mechanics in the game so you can see the amount of dam you inflicted on characters & your self.
itll be hard to rip me away from bf3, but this will definetly do it though. i havent seen a game in a long time that looks hard to put down. my wife is gonna fkn hate me for a few months, i just know it
Oh boy! I am so excited for this winters' lineup. Dark Souls & Skyrim alone is enough to tie me over 'til spring! Then you have all the other beautiful distractions; MGS collection Ico/Shadow collection SC trilogy... & I did'nt even mention the obvious distractions, like MW3, BF, etc. My consoles are. Gonna. Be. HOT!
You really like them HD remake collections, eh?
Whats wrong with hd remakes, gives me a chance to play games i never played
Also i would like this game to be playstation move enabled because there are so many cool & unique ways they could implement motion controls into this game i mean come on guys use your imaginations it's action rpg put it together guys it's not hard to make it work & it won't ruin it for tradition controller gamers. http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
I wouldnt let someone stand in my face with burning hands, crazy!
i hope this game doesn't have bugs at every corner
Its Bethesda of course it will lol still will be GOTY though CANT WAIT
Again I say, I want this game NAOW!
WOW with this and Skyward Sword all in the same year AWSOME
That was the 360 version i'm guessing.
Hey! Down in front!
Mass effect convos are better but this game is better in the open world aspect. Really excited for this game. Alittle too close to UC3 but getting both day one.
