Sorry kiddies, but if you were hoping to convince your parents to buy you Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim as long as you turn the blood off, you're out of luck. As it turns out, you're stuck with the gore.
Just the way it should be. The game has a rating for a reason. And I want to slaughter everyone who I don't like the look of and marry everyone I do.
Terrific another game I can't play in front of my younger cousins
maybe your cousins are over too much?
Time to start them out early! Or just buy them a Wii and put them with it in the other room.
Sweet, I hope you can chop off some limbs in this game, maybe the hit that kills them can have the area hit loose a limb sometimes, kinda like in fallout(IMO it makes alot more sense to have a sword in skyrim chop limbs off as opposed to the bullets in fallout that tear limbs off like the enemies were made of spam). It would be awesome if you were fighting someone and then your last strike sends your enemies head flying off. I always wanted that in morrowind/oblivion. I dont see how removing blood from a game removes the violence. You can still kill anyone and are still hitting and stabbing them with or without blood. the type of parent who would only buy a violent game like this if the blood was turned off is probably a bad parent anyways. If the kid cant see blood, then they shouldnt see violence without the blood either.
I never turn off blood and gore anyway :P
on games like nwn I put the blood and gore setting to MAX.(if you hit a crit on monsters/people they blow up into nice gore bits.)
Nor should it ever be turned off.... If someone turned off blood and gore in Skyrim- the game should just cancel out and load AngryBirds for that softie.
I disagree, quite frankly. A person who doesn't like gore isn't weaker than a person who does. I think there should be an option to disable it.
I never turn off blood. That makes me a badass. People are scared of how hardcore I am.
Makes sense, it's not like the game wouldn't be violent without the blood. If you're killing people and many other creatures in the game, you have to be old enough to play the game anyway.
The option should exist, I think.
It's probably gonna be pretty difficult considering Skyrim features things likes cannibalism, marriage (sex?), and dismemberment as key parts of the gameplay. Taking them out isn't gonna be easy and unfortunately violence in video games is a lose/lose situation for the developers. If they tone down the violence and lose the blood then they're accused of misrepresenting the consequences of violence, when they feature realistic gore it's too graphic. They might as well pick one, say it's for adults, and create a whole and polished experience.
I dont think the option should exist in any game that has dying creatures in it...if you dont like the gore, dont buy a game that has killing in it
