Bit-Tech: From the start, Skyrim is classic Elder Scrolls. From starting as a prisoner (in this case, somehow bundled into a cart with the chief rebel Ulfric Stormcloak on the way to his execution) through the dungeon design, to the densely populated towns and map, everything is so Elder Scrolls.
For example, there’s still the incongruity of well-tended braziers in dungeons, despite them being home to a black bear or giant frost spiders. Who sneaks into the cave, carefully avoiding the gnawed human bones scattered around the lair, to keep these braziers lit? 95/100
