Bethesda cranked out a new release last week, and that can only mean modders are busy conducting massive battles between the game’s strongest monsters! This happens every time Bethesda puts out a game, and I never get tired of it.
Fallout 4 was a decent game that allowed for some epic confrontations, but Bethesda’s true masterpiece remains The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Here, we see 300 giants battle 100 dragons in the new Special Edition, and there really isn’t much of a competition here.
Bodies scatter the open fields when the bloody conflict comes to an end, and make no mistake, the winner here is indisputable.
There’s just something about Skyrim
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim isn’t the prettiest game on the market. It doesn’t perform the best, tell the best story, star the best voice acting, or even provide the largest world anymore. However, when the competition makes its mark and then falls into history, Skyrim continues to live on. This hugely influential game is one of the few from the past decade that has the legs to make it a classic.
I believe this is because Skyrim actually delivers on the promise of freedom. No story boundaries to lock a player into character, no overly invasive quests to send a player down a certain path they don’t want to be on. Skyrim is one of the few games in which bumbling around can be just as much fun as making progress, and the bugs and the jankiness only add to its endearing mystique.
Whatever it is, Skyrim is going to be around for a long time, and I have no problem with that.
