A game that came out in 2011, still relevant at the turn of the century. There couldn’t possibly be anything like that in the real world.
To the point : "We are going to be playing Skyrim forever. Or, at least, I will be." Yeah it will just be you, you could have just cut to the chase and not have been so dramatic and drawn out about it. Perhaps Windhelm theater is more your speed? ;P
Skyrim is still widely played, especially by PC players. It still receives large amounts of mods on sites like Nexus amd is thr most modded game on there. These mods can create awhole new experience.
As a big modder myself.... Mods are the only reason the game is any good. The core game is pretty poor, glitchy and boring. Mods though really make it shine as the game then becomes a custom experience
Depending on how Bethesda handles Elder Scrolls 6 if they turn into some stupid GAAS model with battle passes, Septim packs, and paid mods, we WILL be playing Skyrim forever and we'll like it that way.
just stop this nonsense, they made one bad game with gaas, and no other. Theyve still been releasing really good games the last couple years, so what makes you think they will make the next mainline ES title gaas? there is absolutely no chance that will happen. Theyve also learned from FO76 that they cant pull this shit again.
They didn't learn that they "can't pull this shit again". They just learned how not to do it and how to do it better. Plus the acquisition from Microsoft isn't going to exactly help.
''They've also learned from FO76 that they cant pull this shit again'' We don't know that yet. Maybe they learned that they need to find a better way to not get caught with their bs?
Correction, bethesdas other studios have been making really good games. Bethesda Softworks on the other hand are some worst on the industry and they always get a free pass. If any other game releases with bugs, dated animations, dated graphics, bad voice acting, piss poor performance, crashes etc they would be left out to dry but Bethesda get a free pass because it has good writing... The part we don't play ironically.
@lionguard "cant pull this shit again" and "how not to do it" is the same you know. why wouldnt the ms aquisition help? because it isnt Sony? the fewer platforms they release games on, the more they can focus on the platforms they do release on. it sucks you cant play it on ps and i wont be buying an xbox anytime soon, so that kinda stinks. @critics id like to believe that some of the top guy at bethesda arent full blown idiots and realize they cant make the same mistake from FO76 again. You are talking like they fucked up 5+ games like they did FO76, its one game....yeah it was a dumpster fire and they did get all the shit for it that they deserved, but its not like they have been doing that stuff for decades. @kyro if you think they get away with it just because of good writing you should maybe open your eyes and ears. Also they dont always get away with it, FO4 wasnt as praised and then there is FO76. and after skyrim and FO4/76 they havent released any new game, so what exactly are they getting away with?
I guess at least till Elder6.
I'm going to fire up oblivion again soon, then Skyrim. Incredible games that need a revists, especially with some mods
You carry on im not.
This and GTA V are the most milked games in the history of gaming period!
I don't know about that for certain. Pac-man, Ms Pac-man, Galaga, Tetris, Minecraft, etc. All have been milked for a very long time.
yeah but certainly haven't made that much income as GTA5 and Skyrim
Minecraft is probably the one game that likely did make more than GTA if not about the same.
@Teflon02 Minecraft made upwards of 3.5billion giving an assumed 500ish million made this year which is being generous. GTAV made over 6billion as of april 2021
Sonic 1 and 2 has been released on every single generation since they've existed. Sega Gen Sonic jam Sonic mega collection Sonics ultimate Gen collection and vintage release on stores Ps4 one Sega Gen collection 3d versions on 3ds. Advance Sonic Gen Ps5 and series X as well as older getting the origin collection lol. That's what you call milking. GTA is still a baby at this point
Resident evil 4 too.
Thank you. I swear we are only missing a mobile RE4.
agree! and lets add some others to the list (Mario Kart 8 and all its versions and SIMS 4)
I bought it on release for the PS3. I bought the remastered for the PS4, but still I haven't finished it. I'm hoping for a PS5 version but then with better controls for the controller. The shortcut menu isn't really a short cut to be honest.
I’ll play the remaster on ps5 if it has mods.
Blame Sony for it not having mods or just play it on xbox/pc
I thought Skyrim: Anniversary Edition on PS5 is actually going to have the top 500 Creation Club "pieces of content" so I actually thought this was the top 500 user mods coming to PS5. Is that not the case? If so, that would be a huge reason to play it for me, since I've never played with mods. Thus my original comment.
@zacfoldor you're correct that it'll have the creation club content. That isn't the same thing as all the mods that are available. Definitely worth a revisit for that creation club content though (If you're a fan, I assume it is anyways)
The PS4 version had mods, albeit was very watered down and gimped mod support. You could only create mods using existing items and scripts. You couldn't install the macho man dragons or thomas the tank engine mods, for example. A lot of the best mods weren't available.
I stopped playing by the end of December 2011. So no, just you…
Currently am playing it on ps3
At least some developers create massive and rich games like this that can be played for hundreds of hours 10+ years down the road. As a Sony fan, I’d really like some of their teams to step up and create games like this.
Bloodborne will age better than Skyrim and it is a Sony exclusive. Dark Souls came out the same year as Skyrim. It was better then and it is way better now.
I cannot fathom why people bring up Bloodborne… SONY JAPAN DID NOT DEVELOP THIS GAME. Lol, BB is a FromSoftware title and a sequel from Sony 1st party will never see the light of day as unfortunate as it is (I am a Sony fan and want them to be better than simply paying writers to come in and write B grade stories for their games). I’ve accepted the sad fact that Sony devs are incapable of creating RPG’s. They require way too much skill, passion and forward thinking world building and progression. Until Sony switches their philosophy on game design I will continue to be disappointed.
@Lore Does it really matter if it's first or second party if it's a good game? Hell, we wouldn't have the Souls series at all if Sony hadn't have given support to From Software for the original Demons Souls. Sony had a hand in that series from the start and it's safe to say that they still consider the series to be the backbone of the modern PlayStation experience considering the remake. Sony (like Microsoft) is a producer first and foremost. They both acquire and develop outside talent to build their first party lineups. Sorry to hear they don't "take writing seriously" enough for you. I'm sure you can find something among the thousand copy pasted first person shooters on Game Pass to tide you over if you get bored.
@enkidu yeah thats why so many people are making content/playing bloodborne, its a great game but it doesnt have the lasting that skyrim has with its unending mod support. Also not sure why you need to say which game is better, one is a sandbox rpg, the other a souls game. it just depends on your taste.
@lore Have you also accepted the fact that you won't get story quality games anywhere else but from Sony? Or is this a one way street? Not to mention Sony devs haven't tried big open world games like Skyrim. Few devs have.
Checkout Steam, Nexus, etc and you will see Skyrim is still widely played. BB will not be heavily supported or played st it's 10 year anniversary or before.
That is a fine point you make regarding not having the games if it wasn’t for Sony financing the 2nd party development costs. The issue with this is that because Sony chose to finance versus acquiring the talented studio that can do the job consistently for them or open a studio that has the talent to do the job, they now essentially teased all new fans of the game (Bloodborne, Demon’s Souls, Dark Cloud, etc.) and it has been 7 years since release with no sequel in sight. When compared to Microsoft’s smart new strategy, their fans are going to get the be eating good (regardless of how horrible as the last 2 decades have been for them). Fable, Avowed, Elder Scrolls, Starfield and Fallout are games that are going to garner huge fan bases and the fans will get consistent sequels for those deep massive games. Also those games can still have great stories. Sony needs to figure it out.
Not me, I got bored with it.
Not me. The game looks uninteresting/boring.
Eh, i'm more of a fan of Oblivion. And there's a lot they have to prove with ES6 after their many examples of running games with greed and lackluster polish lately.
Many examples? I can think of only one. Fallout 76. Which now is much better.
Wolfenstein young blood and rage 2 were riddled with MTs, and it ruined youngblood. Then all their absolute garbage "collectors edition" BS with the "canvas" bags and falsely advertised nuka cola bottle. Also trying to force people to pay for free mods with their "creation club" garbage. Not to mention the extreme milking of skyrim with little to no effort put into the rereleases
Yeah, Young Blood wasn't good. You said many and you and I only names one a piece, which makes two bad games out of many good to great games. Where are the rest of the many games you mentioned? I never had to pay for legal free mods on Nexxus.
Well being on PlayStation what choice do it have, I'll just play in PSVR and wander the land growing in power until I can just over power everything.
I've never played it though, lol .. Got platinum trophies for Fallout 3 and 4 though. Skyrim is on my wanted list for Switch games though.
Play it where you can have mods on it. It really makes the game much much better.
I absolutely can’t stand Skyrim, I most certainly will not be playing it forever.
Reinstalled the special edition messed with some mods started the story.... It just isn't there anymore it's time for a new ES
Never liked elder scrolls and never will. I did have respect for oblivion though
Mods are what really keep Bethesda games alive
I only ever played when it first came out. I didn't play the special edition or any of the DLC. I haven't been playing it forever. I'm going to play the new anniversary edition but I don't feel any guilt in doing so. It has tons of content I've never played, plus the 600+ creation club mods that they've added in.
After my first playthrough of skyrim I have tried to restart the game god knows how many times, but I barely put in 10 hours at most on any of those playthroughs before just stopping. It's a hard game to replay.
Nope. You maybe. I moved on a long time ago. That game was good in 2011 but it feels really dated now.
You never played with a full set of pc mods then.
Still haven’t played it.
Not all of us. I've tried 3 times and never gotten past the first ~5 hours and so I've given up. And that was years and years ago.
As long as I can play the Skyrim very special edition on Alexa there will be no other game I shall play on that system (i would need to start buying an Alexa) https://www.youtube.com/wat... But seriously Skyrim is still one of the most played games on Steam with an average of 20 000 ppl currently playing Talk about a feat for a single-player game.
Crazy as successful as Skyrim was there really hasn’t been to many more rpg’s made like that. Witcher 3’s the only other one I was able to really get into.
does this writer not understand what a century is? Headline reads: "A game that came out in 2011, still relevant at the turn of the century." I was busy smoking cigars & working so I didn't have time, rather, the dedication for Skyrim when it dropped. I did pick up the PS4 version several years ago but it's so dated, imo. That and I apparently wasn't in the mood the one time I started Skyrim. Only playing for about as long as it took for me to create a character lol. Anyway, never played Skyrim and at this point there's a good chance I never will. There are plenty of great games out there to be played and more coming every month. Perhaps if the PS5 version offers better graphics and performance I'll consider giving it a shot should the time present itself but as of today, I just have too many games I want to experience.
I haven't played it since like 2012 I personally don't like the game so I'm still only on 1 copy bought
and that's fine just stop buying new versions
"A game that came out in 2011, still relevant at the turn of the century" The turn of the century was a decade before that, so...um...
No...'we' definitely are not
I never got the hype of skyrim, I played a lot of it. Probably over 50 hours maybe 100hrs. But it's not this ground breaking god of a game for me. I like the fallout universe a little more. But outside of mods and bugs, I never quite got the same level of amazement as everyone else.
It was pretty interesting for its time. A lot of people fall in love with the jank of these games s they find the weird writing choices and strange glitches to be part of the appeal. I just think we need to move on at some point. No one is going to bother making Elder Scrolls 6 if Elder Scrolls 5 keeps selling. Look at GTA 5.
I'm still waiting for Skyrim Together to get finished. Or is that no longer a thing?
