Nine years after its release, Skyrim is slowly being overshadowed in the RPG industry, but what will take its place as gaming enters a new generation?
Nothing yet. Possibly ES6.
I know that a lot western people love Skyrim style, but I can't stand the FPS physics and basic designs. For me anything like XII, Horizon, The Witcher or such. Easily overshadowed Skyrim with just first chapter or even first tutorial. Even BoTW feels and plays better.
Either ES6 or Avowed, currently that's pretty much it.
They should pay the modding community for its longevity. Without quality of life mods, Skyrim is a lazy crap game. Same goes for Fallout 4. Bethesda should get credit for the skeleton, but those modders are what sell the game year after year.
IMHO, TES needs to update it's gameplay, it didn't age well. Any game that can deliver Skyrim storytelling with a better gameplay can take "the torch", The witcher did a great job, but i think Elden Ring have a great chance of becoming the new king of RPGs, they already have the amazing gameplay of soulborne games ( Miles better than TES gameplay, Skyrim looks like less than shit compared to DS on the gameplay front...) and now they have a chance to deliver on story telling.
The title of the article gives me a headache
Funny, I stopped playing this before 2011 was even up. But to each their own I guess.
Fallout New Vegas
I'm waiting to see gameplay for Avowed, because that's the one that seems it could take on ES directly, from what we know.
I was really excited for the next Elder Scrolls until the MS buyout. I might pick up an XBOX SX at some point for it, but right now loving my PS5 and don’t see a reason to split my gaming between two platforms any time soon m. Now that I’ve played a lot more of AC: Valhalla, I feel like it’s the first real contender for an open world adventure along the same lines. Skyrim will always have a special place in my gaming history, but the ball is in MS court now on whether it will be a massive success across the industry, or a rushed MS exclusive.
