I saw the trailer and I'm now happy that all this waiting for a new TES game will definitely be worth it. There isn't a doubt in my mind that Bethesda will have let me down.

Awesome trailer! Makes me want to get this game even more! However, due to the high specs this game is likely to require on PC as well as making GFWL mandatory (most likely so), I'll have to stick with console.

It is now blatantly obvious that this will be the greatest game ever made.

Wow... a year out and the limited gameplay we've seen looks solid. With a year left they'll have lots of time to really polish this up and deliver a great experience. Highly looking forward to it.

Wrong, It's still using GameBryo
So you're saying that they're lying?

Eugh, I know I'm replying to an old ass discussion, but the truth is that 36Holla and Phrozon are both right.
Videogame engines aren't really divided up as strictly or as neatly as you might imagine - they kinda just grow and develop in a pretty fluid, evolutionary sense, it's just their nature.
I mean, take the FPS genre, for example. You have Left 4 Dead 2, Borderlands, Call of Duty: Black Ops and Rage. What do they all have in common? They all run on engines that are direct evolutionary descendants of the same engine that ran Wolfenstein 3D.
You see, the engine that ran Wolfenstein 3D (Idtech 1, I think?) was modified and improved in the DOOM engine, which was then updated into the Quake engine. That Quake engine was taken by two separate groups (Id andValve), and what resulted was the engine that powered the later Quake games & the Gold Src engine (Half Life), which was later heavily modified into the Source engine (Left 4 Dead, Half Life 2, TF2). Later, newer builds of the Id tech engine would also be used as the basis for the original Unreal Engine (Bordlerands), IW engine (Call of Duty), and of course Id tech itself is powering Rage.

Anyways, the point I'm trying to make is that engines just kinda grow and evolve into each other, and almost every "new" engine was based upon, or simply is, a heavily modified version of an older engine. So when they say the engine powering Skyrim is both a brand new engine and a modified version of the Gamebryo engine, both statements are true. Paradoxically. :0

Wolfenstein 3D didn't even use the same rendering method so this is bullshit. Wolfenstein 3D used raycasting, it's engine couldn't display real 3D models but only sprites.
The method we use these days is called rasterization and we will be using raytracing in the future.

The engine used by Skyrim has been COMPLETELY REWRITTEN, nothing is based off the old Gamebryo powered engine. Multiple sites have said that the new engine does not use Gamebryo and while Bethesda doesn't say it with so many words, it's most likely that this engine does NOT USE GAMEBRYO!

Also, according to gamedebate, a new graphics card will make my pc run Skyrim YAY!

So every single game engine ever was based off the same engine? Thats just completely not true. The first 3D games had their own renderers while games now use OpenGL, DirectX or something else I can't remember.

Get the Pushy on F:NV and your sorted, even with a low unarmed skill. You'll only die if you want to die. Also, I love both series.

It looks like a good game, and I'll probably get it close to its release.

That being said, it's kinda disappointing how much the game looks like The Lord of the Rings. It's fantasy, game developers, you an do anything you want. Try a little creativity in the art design.
