I have something I want to say. I'm getting tired of the gatekeeping that's shown in the elder scrolls community and fanbase.
Don't get me wrong the elder scrolls is easily one of my favourite series, and there is no doubt in my mind that I have spent thouands of hours playing the various games. Hell, one of the very first video games I ever played was Daggerfall (Along with Crash Bandicoot, Croc legend of the gobbos and Gran Turismo.. I was quite the playstation kid I will admit) although at the time I must have only been about 10 years old and had no idea what the game was about or what I was doing in it and quite frankly daggerfall is still a little confusing to me now as an adult and thats after playing it to death over the years and decades since then.
I adore Morrowind, and while in some aspects (such as the gameplay and geneal feel) it has dated I would however agree that from an atmosphere and world building point of view it is almost peak elder scrolls.
And yes, I do enjoy Oblivon. It is perfect? No. Is it however a buggy yet charming mess of a game that's just as flawed as it is good? Yes. And I have sunk hundreds of hours into it and I feel no shame. It can be fun to play from time to time.
But you know what I love and enjoy? You know what game I do find myself replaying sometimes, even if I will admit it's a little shallow, full of bugs and maybe just maybe you need to mod it a little to get it to work and play right? Let me whisper it as I can hear the screams of horror coming already..
I FUCKING LOVE SKYRIM BRO SKYRIM IS PRETTY FUN SOMETIMES OK
There, I said it. I said the forbidden thing that it seems nobody is allowed to say anymore. I enjoy skyrim. It's not the best, but it's a fun game to dick around in and have fun with. And you know what? I'm tired of all the jerkass elder scrolls "fans" who in a rather similar way some fallout "fans" will defend new vegas as being the greatest video game of all time and if you say anything otherwise or god forbid say you enjoy fallout3 you get treated like you just shat all over their bed there is sadly a LOT of gatekeeping Elder scrolls "fans" towards the 'greatess of Morrowind as it the very peak and best of RPG games and how Skyrim is litteraly the end of video games rip Todd Howard is worse than satan'
Like I said, I get it. Skyrim has flaws, it has issues and glitches and at times it feels like the game is held together with Post too long. Click here to view the full text.
