        They have been doing that for 10 games now, it's getting old and boring. They aren't even going it well when the worldbuilding is trash and the level design is another DaS2 all over again. What says you can't have post-apocalyptic world be anything but static shit? Plenty of other games do it much better like SMT.

          You sound like a salty homosexual anon. Skyrim is a game in a series from devs that are lazy AF and phoned in their game. It literally is being kept alive by modder who just want to coom to their own characters. I played through skyrim once and it wasn't worth revisiting, but I've played all the souls games through 3-4 times each.

        see that worked in a linear game like Dark Souls where the skyboxes and backgrounds make it seem bigger than it is and lets your imagination run wild. It doesn't in an open world setting when you actually have to traverse that empty land with nothing to do besides combat.

          What the frick are you talking about? The world and the scale feel massive and rewarding to explore. You have fast travel to deal with backtrack fatigue if you're only focused on "beating" the game. However, there are lots of bosses, loot, and npcs to find by going off the beaten path and exploring the map.

        I forgot to add the most obvious advantage for Skyrim, the better open world.

        Skyrim's open world is dynamic, filled with interesting encounter and content, gives a lot of freedom to the player and is much more immersive and feels alive

        Whereas Elden Ring's open world is beautiful thanks to its art direction, the exploration is good but not as good as Skyrim because most worthwhile stuff you are going to find lies in the legacy dungeon, the open world has nothing to it except collecting flowers, fighting the same recycled enemies and running past empty fields of nothing, it also doesnt react to you or surprise you with its dynamic design, its also outdated for its release standards, for 2011 Skyrim's open world was next level, for 2022 Elden Ring's open world was derivative, its in all honesty on the level of Ubisoft.

              I'm not sure what kind of rose tinted goggles you've got on but skyrims open world objectively sucks compared to oblivions, and Elden Ring's is much better than both of them.

              Almost none of the areas in Skyrim are optional, everything is connected to a boring side quests somehow. Everything there is to discover is attached to some dumb quest marker.

                >skyrims open world objectively sucks compared to oblivions
                Nope, Oblivion world is still better than Elden Ring but its not better than Skyrim, Oblivion world contains a lot of copy pasted environments and has less dynamic, the radiant AI was still super flawed at the time despite its innovative nature. Skyrim world evolved Oblivion formula to its next level.

                >boring side quests
                They are way WAY better than ER side quests which had only 2 good side quests with the Volcano and Ranni's, the rest are dogshit with terrible writing and bad incentive to do them.
                Skyrim has A LOT of cool side quests from the daedric princes like Sheogorath and Sanguine to the guild quests like Thieves and Dark Brotherhood to random town side quests where you can solve a murder mystery or sabotage a trading company or explore a civil war or go into the prison for a neat escape quest or even a random adventure for a dragon shout.

                >quest marker
                i have nothing against quest markers in open world, they can save a lot of time, and they dont impact whether a quest is good or bad

                Skyrims guild quests were a huge disappointment and way worse than oblivions. None of the side content was memorable at all, I did nearly all of it and I still can't remember it.

                Skyrims world was definitely a step down from oblivions, which actually had NPCs that had routes between towns and several little dungeons that served no purpose but flavor.

                Elden Ring's open world is vastly different, but has probably 3x the amount of content crammed into it compared to Skyrim.

                I'm not sure why Bethesda fanboys still exist when every elder scrolls game is progressively worse than the last.

                -True, Oblivion is easily top 5 side quest in gaming, so i dont know how thats related to the ER vs Skyrim discussion. just because Oblivion side quests are better than Skyrim, doesnt make it a point in favor of Elden Ring.

                -Its not, Oblivion world as i said has less handcrafted and unique content, there is no blackreach, no forgotten vale, no different types of dungeons, but instead oblivion had exactly the same caves and dungeons scattered throughout all the map, Oblivion actually is the weakest TES game when it comes to open world. Skyrim's npc are also better programmed.

                -ER world content (outside of legacy dungeons) is recycled and repetitive, a point i acknowledged before. and content alone doesnt make the world better, the TES worlds are dynamic and reactive while the world of ER is static and dead.

                - I actually dont like Bethesda, lol. Im just not a clueless npc who jumps on the bandwagon, Skyrim is flawed true, but since e-celebs started becoming popular, unfairly shitting on the game has been trendy and cool.

    The problem with Skyrim is how the game itself trivializes all of its gameplay unless you're one of those who likes Legendary difficult for some reason, Fromsoft games are balanced so well compared to what Bethesda does that most people will have a very different second playthrough even if they're technically doing similar things (mostly just beating the main quest), Skyrim has all these mechanics and you have to go out of your way to even develop interest for them, much less actually touch them and even less people will actually level them up to interact more with the game.

    There's a reason Bethesda can get away with removing mechanics that were in past games and that's because even in the game they originated from they weren't used in a substancial way in a quest or needed to get through any content or even intuitive as way to progress faster unless you're truly one of the 1% who knows everything about the game.

      I just played through the Dark Brotherhood questline again and I forgot that you can complete the entire thing and even get bonuses by just walking up to the target and crouching behind them and backstabbing them where they stand. The closest thing I did to stealth was drag the Gourmand's corpse 10 feet over to a pile of boxes to hide the body. A couple times I didn't bother pretending to be an assassin and walked right up and killed the target in broad daylight then shoved 1000 gold at the closest guard, turned 360 degrees, and walked away. I think the thieves guild is the only place where you regularly get mission objectives that aren't KILL, LOOT, RETURN

      >Fromsoft games are balanced so well
      Balance in singleplayer games is so overrated, its not that important.
      The reason their games are more balanced is because there is only so much to them, you balance enemies and player tools and thats about it, and despite their attempts players found many ways to break the games and make them easy mode. ER in particular is not balanced at all, the bosses and the areas are a freaking mess. its actually one of the biggest complaints about ER combat system.
      >Skyrim has all these mechanics and you have to go out of your way to even develop interest for them
      This is what i called good vs bad gamer.
      Dishonored is another game that easily showcases that, the bad gamer will think its boring and dull while the good gamer will notice how stylish and cool the combat is.

      Difficulty is not the only way to tell skilled gamers from unskilled ones, if you as a gamer can make people watching you have fun through your gameplay then that also means you are skilled.

    Elden Ring since I don't care for Skyrimjob aside from the vampire b***h but I would take Sellen over that boring prostitute. Soundtrack is nice but it doesn't save me from the same 5 npc towns and 1 enemy variety dungeons. The quests are the worst design in any RPG and any small quest in ER mogs them. Morrowind is better in world building than both and if you want a real open world just play Gothic series.

    Elden Ring is a considerably better game, but they both serve completely different purposes.
    Elden Ring is heavily combat focused. The world design and exploration are great, but all of it ultimately serves the core purpose of combat.
    Skyrim is great if you just wanna be in a cozy world to frick around in. Simply being in the world and just doing shit can be fun. If you play it with the intention of simply beating it--getting from point A to point B--you will have a dogshit experience. I think one of the reasons why modding scene is so big in this game is because most of the mods are made to enhance or supplement the "living in the world" aspect of the game.

    You gays have nothing to look forward to after Shitfield might as well attack better games for your relevancy here. Skyrim is hard carried by mods and nostalgia and no amount of shitposting will convince everyone otherwise.

        At least they can admit their games are shit but Skyrimbabbies would get on some weird defense whenever someone attacks their shit game.

    Skyrim is dogshit and I do not understand what anybody sees in it. Sure, Elden Ring is just Dark Souls 4 but the gameplay is much better than anything Skyrim has to offer. BEthesda open worlds are also possibly the most lifeless and unfulfilling in the entire genre. Probably not, but they're definitely the worst big name at it, going neck to neck with Ubisoft.
