Skyrim Looks Like S-h-i-t... Nov. 2nd, 2011 @ 09:24 PM

Well. It does. Wanna know why? I tell you....

What I've seen so far:

HUGE WORLD
cool graphics
go wherever you want
300+ hours of gameplay

The developers, in the interviews I've seen, haven't said a single word about the story, nor do I know what the story is which is quite fascinating considering how much I've seen of the game.

I hope you agree with me here, I think story is the most important thing in a game. It drives you forward you know. going wherever you want killing random things is gonna be boring as fuck if I don't have the motivation to do it.

1. Official thread.
2. I think that the story is only important in a story-driven game, which Skyrim is not. I prefer gameplay over story. You know, PLAYING the game! That's what games are for.

Story: The Nordic god of destruction, Alduin, has returned in the form of a dragon along with his servents that also are in the form of dragons, you are the last dragonborn, a person born with the soul of a dragon and able to speak, read, and use the language and power of the dragons. You are the only one who can defeat the dragons and Alduin from destroying the world.

You also face the fact that the land of Skyrim is in a great civil war.

Yeah, total no story info, none all.

I am buying this game still. I already have, preorder.

That thread is like 800 pages long and it's practically just for the fan boys. Game-play over story doesn't make sense because no one in their right mind wants to play a 10 hour long game, much less a 300 hour one, without being told why they are doing what they are doing in the game and so on and so forth.

That story actually makes me even less interested.

I don't know what it is... these games just don't do it for me.

I agree with this guy. That piece of description you just made me read makes me want to punch a kitten.

Just because they haven't talked about the story doesn't mean it's a story-less game.
Besides, if it's anything like Oblivion, which I can't see it being much different, there will be hundreds of stories going on all at once.
Also, how could there possibly be 300 hours of gameplay without any story? Do you really think anyone would be the least bit excited about killing the same monsters over and over for 300 hours? No.

It's about general discussion about the game, and you're not required to read the entire thing. Though you probably should if you actually think this game will be bad.

Game-play over story doesn't make sense because no one in their right mind wants to play a 10 hour long game, much less a 300 hour one, without being told why they are doing what they are doing in the game and so on and so forth.

Gameplay over story makes plenty of sense. Who actually payed attention to the story in Mega Man games, or in the original Sonic games, or in any Mortal Kombat/Street Fighter game, or Need for Speed, etc.

Would you rather sit through hours of absolutely terrible gameplay just to see a story play out, or skip the cutscenes of a crappy story and have a blast playing a brilliantly programmed game?

Oblivion's story was crap and pretty boring, but the game was very good nonetheless.

Mario has a weak story.
Contra has a weak story.
Pokemon has a weak story.
Most games have a weak or OK story. Few really stick out.
So if a game isn't a movie, it's crap?

Sounds like someone's a little disappointed that there are no Russians with AK47s shooting at him; that there are no lobbies for 7 year olds to shout various racial and ethnic slurs at him; and that there's a level of immersion required beyond "here's a gun, go crazy."

Why? I enjoyed the game and had a great time playing it, I had fun, ain't that the point that games are supposed to have?

Just wow.

That is the stupidest fucking thing I have ever heard.

Anyone who plays a lot of games knows that gameplay is much more important than story.

The Elder Scrolls games are boring, buggy pieces of shit which are only remotely playable once you've modded the fuck out of them.

I like that you won't be forced to the story. I first played an TES game when I was like 8 and couldn't really do the story. I enjoyed playing the story on both Morrowind and Oblivion later on also, but the free roam aspect of the game was my favorite part. I didn't like Oblivion very much because it's impossible to be just an outlaw going from town to town killing and stealing. Morrowind FTW :)

I hope it's more like Morrowind than Oblivion.

To be honest I never really enjoyed The Elder Scrolls games for their story (not that they are bad, but they are usually only mediocre or good, not great.)

Skyrim looks good so far.

Rage isn't a real Bethesda game, meaning they didn't develop it.

This game looks super awesome, to me.
It will be totally epic, to me.

The only person I care about is me.

I really don't care if you guys die tomorrow, so I care even less if you hate this game. Ha ha.

You're an idiot. Hell, you didn't say what's bad about the game except the fact that developers haven't said much about the story. Did it occur to you that they want to keep it all a suprise? Probably not for someone who made a thread as moronic as this.
