Elder Scrolls 5 Rumor

Eurogamer.net points to Eurogamer Denmark where there's a rumor that Bethesda Softworks is currently developing the fifth installment in their Elder Scrolls series of role-playing games. They have a translation of the report from Eurogamer Denmark editor-in-chief Kristian West, who offers an English version of the report, though this doesn't provide much clarity on their source for the rumor. "This source not only confirmed that the game is in current production, but also spoke briefly about the content - with fantasy-sounding phrases like Dragon Lord, something with The Blades - and that voice acting for the characters in the game is currently happening in the weeks to follow," goes the translation. "The same source confirmed, with official game documents in hand, that this will be the chronological sequel to what happened in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, which is the latest game in the now 16-years-old Elder Scrolls saga and by itself one of the better RPGs for PC and consoles."

It is possible that an RPG can move forwards and not be held back by RPGs of the past two decades, that in removing complexity in one area that you autistic people obsess and perseverate on ("What? No Unarmored skill? NO MEDIUM ARMOR SKILL? THE GAME IS COMPLETELY RUINED!"), they can spend more time balancing and working on new, more natural complexity elsewhere.

Actually, I think that was pretty epic and on the ball.



Games are products developed to be sold to people who will give good, hard cash to be entertained. They are not designed or developed by the Muses to bring forth High Art unto the savage barbarian races. Look at the top five selling franchises of all time. You think any of those games have a narrative that's better than your average Twilight book? Please.


Old shit is old for a reason and we don't use it now because it's clearly inferior to what we're using today. If that wasn't so, why aren't we still using bronze tools and chasing bears with long pointy sticks?



The Top 5 Best Selling Game Franchises of ALL TIME:
Mario
Pokemon
Tetris
The Sims
FIFA

Hey, you're right! Except that NONE of those are RPGs. The best selling RPG of all time, though, is Lineage. So, by your logic...Lineage is the BEST RPG EVER.

I think that is pretty definitive proof that your scale is completely out of whack.

You seem to think that these RPGs are being streamlined to make them sleeker and more fun - in reality, most of them are just being simplified to make them cheaper to develop and run on consoles with limited resources and controls, and homogenized to make them appeal to a "broader demographic" (aka the lowest common denominator).

Don't get me wrong...I own Fallout's 1 through 3, and if I'm going to play Fallout it's probably going to be New Vegas...even great games don't always age so gracefully that a pretty update doesn't appeal.

But to sit there and say Oblivion is better than Morrowind because of the "new natural complexities" is...well...it's actually pretty absurd. They didn't remove complexity to make it better...they simply removed it to make it run better on a machine with less memory and a clunkier control scheme.
