Skyrim: The Women Of Skyrim (Gallery)

NowGamer: "Back at Gamescom 2011, Bethesda's Pete Hines told us that The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim's female quotient had been given an upgrade by saying, "We have attractive women now."

We decided to put this to the test by embarking on a quest for satire, and set off searching the cold expanses of Skyrim for as many ladies as we could find." (Bethesda Game Studios, PC, PS3, The Elder Scrolls Online, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Xbox 360)

Definite visual improvement on Oblivion. Not just the ladies, either.

I agree but some of them still look a little homely. Not as bad as Oblivion though.

You've gotta have some fugs, it adds to the realism.

Almost all of them look like they're variations of anerexic Angelina Jolie. Hopefully someone will come out with a TexMod that'll put some meat on them.

All of the NPCs I've seen have been ugly as hell.

Except for one, possibly: the shapes were good, but covered with so much dirt crap it was hard to get good grasp of things.

yeah really, I doubt there would have been that many hot ladies back then so thats why they are all poor and dirty looking in this game.

But I noticed that in oblivion and fallout, no matter how old or ugly their faces were, they always had really fit and hot bodies when you took their clothes off(I know how pervy of me LOL). Well I guess there were less fat people back then anyways.

From these pics it seem that this game continues this tradition. Im sure under their clothes they all have nice butts, tiny waists, and nice heaving breasts. I bet even that old lady they show has the body of a 22 year old porn star if you take her clothes. Not tht that is a bad thing lol.

Honestly i don't see all that visual improvement in the ladies. They're evidence that Bethesda didn't learn much from the modding community of Oblivion.
iamgoatman  +   1270d ago
I'm glad they didn't, most of the face mods just made the NPC's look like they've been pulled straight from some crappy Manga.

I think these new girls are more fugly than the old ones.
aPerson  +   1270d ago
But they do look better. You are wrong.


If you truly find Oblivion's potato-faced ladies to be more attractive, I highly recommend investing in a pair of glasses!
sohaben  +   1270d ago
haha....that was a joke, right?

did you play Oblivion? I would make a prettier lady and i have a beard. lol
sohaben  +   1270d ago
Yeah, those are mostly manly women. Their posture seems a little....unnatural; its odd.

Hopefully at least one of the nobles will get a rise out of my trousers =D haha

who says trousers?
jakethesnake  +   1270d ago
Yeah - the posture is weird. It often looks like their heads are too far back which does seem very unnatural - but other than that it looks great.
chazjamie  +   1269d ago
they all kind of look the same. damn ugly. not even "reality ugly".

Why do they all look like zombies?
Lord_Sloth  +   1270d ago
Because Zombies are all the rage and medieval people couldn't clean themselves, being primitive obviously means incompetent. XXXD
ScubaSteve1  +   1270d ago
i just hope they fixed the voice animations, that what made me mad in oblivion because the mouths would not move, when they talk
Ness-Psi  +   1270d ago
but women are like that in real life.
f789790  +   1269d ago
That's a common misconception. It only appears that their mouths are not moving. In fact, they're talking so fast your eyes cannot keep up with the movement.

They actually look like women
jc48573  +   1270d ago
what women? lol even your average women in real life looks better. Heck, most games have real women in them, but this is a lie!

Deadman_Senji  +   1270d ago
A few of them look like dudes. Straight up DUDES
kesvalk  +   1270d ago
except for susana (the one n the SS here on N4G) all of them look like zombies/men.

when bethesda will replace their character artists?
Tuxedo_Mask  +   1270d ago
Is it true that your character can marry any of the women in Skrim? If so, I wonder who will take the plunge with Silda or Tekla. Someone has to give those two ladies the gift of societal upward mobility, and maybe some clean clothes too.
Inception  +   1270d ago
They all look like men -_-
Somebody  +   1270d ago
They're better than Oblivion but they have really sharp/flat cheeks. All of them(in the screenshots).
MasterCornholio  +   1270d ago
Hmmm maybe there's an illusion spell to make some of them look a little better. At least they look a lot better than the women in oblivion.
Bolts  +   1270d ago
I've been deceived! By "Women of Skyrim" I read hot chicks. Instead the link took me to pictures of old crones.

Get to work mod community!

Is it me or do eastern Rpgs/mmorpgs tend to have more of the eyecatching in game female characters.... Bethesda's charcs went from fugly to fug.
jc48573  +   1269d ago
It's mainly Bethesda. They need to consider hiring some good character designers because this is unforgivable. All we want is some believable class of people. You start looking at other games where they've improved a whole lot on character designs, but Bethesda is like they haven't hit evolution yet.

Well...Guys, I'm a girl and, first of all, I'm not feminist. But what you're saying is quite offensive for a lady :/ Skyrim is a wonderful game, but It's a RPG game. Maybe If you did wanted to touch a butt or do something worse you should have bought another kind of game...Just saying.
