Is that a child in a red shirt running past you.....

Theres children in Elder Scrolls now...about time. Although I bet you can't harm them like the ones in Fallout. Don't get me wrong killing children is wrong but this is a computer game. Some of the brats in Fallout were annoying, am I the only one who wanted to blow Mayor Maccready's head off in little lamp light.

Anyway it would bring up more punishing consequences, like you go to prison longer, you gain a bad name around Skyrim if you've been caught, the Father/Mother will try and kill you after a while...randomly, they could be a small challenge aswell.

It would just make things more realistic

RedDead3101d ago

You're right though. No killing children, the only real reason to do it is because it's realistic. Bethesda. Bethesda just say "NO, WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO DO THAT?!?". Obviously they just don't want the heat of the media.

Yes, I can agree with that, their statement to gay marriage was "We didn't think it was special, we just didn't want to make a big deal out of it". So nice. ^^
To the topic of killing them: One word: Mods. Of course, the stuff you described (parents coming after you) would be a little harder to pull off...
Anyway, I was one of the lucky ones at Gamescom (who accepted waiting 1.5 hours to see it - I really got kinda lucky there) who saw a 30 minutes presentation of this game, and when I saw children I honestly was kinda surprised - in a positive way of course. I loved the difference it made to Fallout 3 compared to Oblivion. Quest from children who are alone because their parents have been killed for whatever reason, blah blah. Amazing.

I'm more stoked for Skyrim than ever before. The other vids at the source were awesome. AWESOME I tells ya!

Xalaris3101d ago

I'll probably end up killing everyone anyway.

Out of boredom, obviously... :3

Sometimes realism isn't worth the tradeoff.

Not even GTA has allowed you to murder kids, as that would get the game an instant AO rating and end up with it banned from many retailers and some countries altogether.

Honestly, I'm just glad that the game has children at all. As long as they run away when attacked, I doubt them being unkillable will be that big of a deal.

grailly3101d ago

you could sell them as slaves in fallout though, that was good enough for me.

All skyrim gameplayes are amazing and this one of course.

MidnytRain3101d ago

Amazing? All I saw was dialogue trees, and I couldn't even make out what they were saying.

Muitnorts3101d ago

That's true, but somehow even that got me very excited. Just seeing how much smoother the interaction is than in Oblivion.

greyhaven333101d ago

Looks incredible, November needs to hurry up

HeavenlySnipes3101d ago

That looked like a midget being chased by a dog, not a kid....

SephirothX213101d ago

PC mods will allows children to be killed and killed they will be! Muwahahahahahaha!

Comments like this one are exactly why they WON'T be killable, and probably shouldn't be.

You just compared a digital recreation of a child to kids in a real live videogame lobby. Your comment insinuates that you want to kill the kids you hear with squeaky voices when you are playing CoD.

While they annoy me, killing them is never the thought that goes through my head.

vyke33101d ago

lol. you actually took me seriously?

Hayabusa 1173101d ago

Yeah vyke3, don't make comments like that on the internet or you'll scare the developers from actually putting it into the game...say nothing, pretend it isn't a big deal, and then when they think it's safe, and they think we'll play with their features responsibly...BOOYA! Take that ten year old...
