Wow, what a difference 5 years makes. Skyrim looks amazing.

kcuthbertson2241d ago

I know right?

I love how some people were saying that Oblivion looked just as good lol.

Playing it I kept saying I would have thought there would have been more of a graphical leap since the last one.

I guess nostalgia has hazed my memories it's quite clearly leaps and bounds better.

I sit humbled and corrected.

To be fair, if you're playing Oblivion on a PC with HD texture mods and environment mods (as it should be played, you're missing out on a good chunk of the Oblivion experience otherwise IMO), it looks a hell of a lot closer to Skyrim than these shots do. But of course if you're comparing vanilla graphics, especially on consoles, Oblivion is going to look like garbage compared to Skyrim.

Couldn't agree more.
I mean, I did play it highly modded .. more loaded environment cells, high range detailed trees/bushes, high-res textures for the distant ground ... but still.
Skyrim really seems like it's hand-crafted inch by inch. It is just amazing. Still loving it 100%. ^^

Skyrim looks great, look at those textures on the rock, holy $hit!

Jake_Butler2241d ago

Yeah what a great looking game. I can't wait to but this one I hear it's one of the best games ever.

SilentNegotiator2241d ago

Indeed. I played through it recently. Pop-in and loading times are probably the biggest issue, though, aside from just not looking very good these days.

hotskys2240d ago

It was the best looking of it's time.

You should never look back on games that were the best of their time and call them bad.

Your standards are just getting higher.

i remember the awesome view when you get out the sewers for the first time in Oblivion

And again when they did it in Fallout 3....

Simco8762241d ago
