Review: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR | VRFocus

No matter how many times you’ve experienced Skyrim, you’ve never felt it like this.

The gaming gods have blessed us,
This generation might not got to see the the arcades of the 80's but you have it so good right now.

40yr old gamer here and I can say without a doubt that this is the best time in gaming history.

Day one.

gamer for 35+ years here and i can safely say that gaming is floating dead in the water. this gen has been one rehash fest so far with dull and disappointing aaa titles.

funny how opinions can differ, eh? ;-)

fiveby92385d ago

I also have been playing games for 35+ years. Back in the days when the arcade was social media/networking. I'd say it has been a year of greatness and huge disappointment at the same time.Lots of rehash? yep so true. But I'd also say some of that rehash is also refinement. For example, I played (and continue to play) Larian Studio's Divinity Original Sin 2. Is that a rehash of the ole isometric rpg? To a degree yes but it is also a refinement. It's a brilliant game and for the money offers tons of replayability and has no microtransactions. I think the saddest state of affairs is what is going on right now with EA's SW BF2 and their randomized MT loot based progression system. This and other such systems is what I will consider the worst part of this year..

I don't own PSVR (yet) but boy SKYRIM in VR sure looks fun.

JackBNimble2385d ago

47 year old gamer here, I too have been playing since the early days and I would say it's a great time to be a gamer.
Obviously games can be hit or miss but if you are to spoiled to appreciate how gaming has evolved over the last 40 years, then maybe you need a new hobby.

Cool story bro

Eh, wink face

Hardiman2385d ago

I've been gaming for 30 years and while this year has had it's share of troubling trends with services, MT's/loot boxes and such there have also been some amazing games! In particular some great single player games from Sony and Nintendo. I'm having the time of my life and while there are certain companies or publishers who seem to want to change the landscape there are others who are committed to delivering amazing experiences and at the same time reminding me why I started gaming in the first place!

Gaming goes in cycles. The 80's were great, nothing like being a kid in those arcade days, experiencing the magic then. Listening to Kraftwerk and watching Tron in the theatre. The 90's were amazing during the SNES/Genesis days, The PS1 launch, the Dreamcast Launch, the 3DFX 3d acceleration early days with Glide Api, the original Xbox Playing on Xbox Live with Mech Assualt, The Early days of the Xbox 360, and now PSVR. VR mostly reminds me of the days I was buying every Glide enabled game for the 3dFX, constantly scouring magazines and the web seeing what game was coming out or being patched for it. I am now doing the same with VR lol.

Hardiman2384d ago (Edited 2384d ago )

The 90's were an exciting time for games. The jump from the SNES to the 64 and PSX was mind blowing! I'll never forget playing Mario 64 for the first time. Putting hours into Turok. Discovering Resident Evil or Abe's Odysee. Infiltrating the Shadow Moses for the first time. Finally getting The Ocarina of Time or seeing how great RE Code Veronica looked on the Dreamcast! I miss the mags from back then too like Gamer Republic, Gamefan, EGM(back then they were really good and I loved the 300 page ones!) and the Dreamcast mags!

With Support from The Coalition

That's great news. Hopefully the Coalition can smooth some of those edges from the last Avowed reveal.

Well I'm annoyed. Especially at all the ppl who said the graphics sucked. It's your fault they probably shifted the game to unreal so it could look more fancy for you. I was ok with it and hoping to actually play it sometime soon. Now it's like 99% chance it's delayed.
Edit: effing graphics whores

"Well I'm annoyed. Especially at all the ppl who said the graphics sucked. It's your fault they probably shifted the game to unreal so it could look more fancy for you."

What the hell are you talking about dude? Avowed was already in development using the UE5. The Coalition is just helping Obsidian in the transition to its latest version (5.3)

MrBaskerville15h ago(Edited 15h ago)

Probably not even that big of a difference. Coalition might only have helped because they got a deadline to meet.

Unreal isn't nearly as bad as Unity when you update a project. Though it obviously depends on the project. But unity generally gets an aneyurism if you threaten to update, where Ue is usually less stingy.

Reaper22_15h ago

In excited for Avowed and Gears 6.

Fishy Fingers16h ago

It already was Unreal 5, its just moving to the latest build.

CantThinkOfAUsername7h ago

Latest build is 5.4 and it's better than previous iterations, particularly in animation and performance.

Lightning771d ago

Apparently the latest build looks way better graphically. This rumor from Jez Cordin (who's credible) pretty much confirms it.

Interested in seeing more on Avowed in a few weeks.

Notellin15h ago

UE 5.3 has been out since September of last year. I can't believe this is news or that anyone is hyping this up.

MrNinosan15h ago

As Hellblade failed to set the world on fire, just like Halo Infinite and Starfield before it, it's time to look forward to the next Game of the Decade candidate.
Of course it needs to be hyped up ahead of time 😏

Notellin8h ago

I didn't mean the game itself. I can't believe there is a news article about an Unreal Engine update that launched a year ago.

Reading comprehension is tough for fanboys on N4G.

truthBombs15h ago

I liked the games unique artstyle when It was revealed. I hope they're not making the migration based on criticism. It's only a rumor anyways

MrBaskerville15h ago

I imagine the art style will stay the same. But there'll probably be some visual upgrades here and there.

anast14h ago

This was the only game I was jealous of, but It's a wait and see game now. Plus, I can wait until they release it on PSN.

Miraak82 13h ago

Right!!! Obsidian is like only XB GS that I wanna play there games . Pillars of Eternity is one of my fav game franchises and I'd love to step back into the world of Eora . Their world building and rpg systems are one of the best , I hope XB higher ups don't get in the way of them. If they released it on ps I would definitely buy it day 1
