I wrote a post just recently about my favourite games. Imagine my horror at realising I’d completely missed Morrowind. So I’ve compiled some Elder Scrolls memes that describe my love for the series. Join me on my tour of the quirks and oddities that make The Elder Scrolls so fantastic. Hands off my sweetrolls.
Elder Scrolls Memes – Bugs and Glitches
The elder scrolls games are notoriously rough around the edges at times. I suppose it’s sort of to be expected when you consider the scale and complexity of the worlds.
I can’t think of any other games that allow you to pick up every object from the environment. Besides, some of the bugs are downright hilarious.
Elder Scrolls Memes – Flora and Fauna
Tamriel is choc full of weird and wonderful creatures to beat into pulp with a club.
Elder Scrolls Memes – Modding for Longevity
The best thing about an Elder Scrolls Game is knowing you will never, ever finish it. You’ll get through most of the content, then mods will take over your life and you’ll spend more time adding mods than actually playing.
Perhaps Bethesda should just start releasing games about modding?
Elder Scrolls Memes – The Guards are Bastards
I saved the world and everyone in it, including you Mr. Fancypants Guard. The least you could do is give me a break when I accidentally pick up an apple.
P.S. We don’t care what happened to your flipping knee.
Elder Scrolls Memes – Programmed to Troll You
Levelled looting is heaps of fun, first you pick a master lock, then you’re rewarded with a vegetable! That AI too, if I was a bandit I’m pretty sure I’d lay off the dragon slayer.
Despite the Madness I Love this Series
Yes, it’s got bugs and frustrating AI. But there will never be another game that quite matches the wonder I felt exploring Vvardenfell for the first time. The Elder Scrolls series has a magic all of its own.
Finally, if you’ve yet to get your Nord on, there’s a lovely new re-mastered version of Skyrim you can try on PC and consoles, you can find it on Amazon. Join me, let us mount our trusty dragons and explore this world of wonders!
