A very close second went to Dark Souls.

Come the f*ck at me. The only other contender is Fallout 3.

Bethesda is the GOAT. SOOOOO Pumped for Fallout 4 and the next Elder Scrolls!

I thought Oblivion did a better job at that, but believe Skyrim is the superior game.

I could play it on matter what mood I was in. Aggressive? Hop on and go looting and testing my luck against giants/mammoths/dragons. Adventurous? Plenty of quests/side quests to do. Relaxed/high? Go deer hunting while picking catching butterflies/picking flowers for potions.

I may have to go create a pure stealth ranger again in the near future. My other accounts were highly magic based.

Skyrim was definitely the best game I played on my PS3.

That said, I don't think it's worthy of being called the "greatest game." It was plagued with bugs, which Bethesda scratched their heads over, delayed DLCs (for PS3), and had a lot of junk content like fetch quests and "Go there, kill X, earn X gold." Plus the story was just disappointing.

The mods are great, but this can't be counted towards the game's quality. There are a lot of junk mods out there too.

Ever since Morrowind, I get a boner every time Bethesda announces a new Elder Scrolls game.

Honestly, I think about 50% of my excitement and anticipation comes from seeing what Jeremy Soule does with the music.

I could listen to Elder Scrolls soundtracks all day.

I agree Skyrim on PC is buriful, but that's with a ton of mods. I find it sad that in order to really enjoy the experience of a game, you need a ton of mods to make it better. Skyrim on PS3 was buggy, and not nearly as buriful as PC. Which is why this argument is just dumb to me. If we're talking purely PS3... Skyrim isn't even top 5.

I don't think there are any other games that I've put ridiculous amounts of hours into than the Fallout and Elder Scrolls games. Easily my favorite series. But for PS3? Lol no, having mods for these games makes them soooo much better.

And the best PS3 game was TLOU btw ;)

Well, all Bethesda games are buggy. You sort of just accept that, as long as the overall experience is good.

As far as the graphics, Bethesda developed the game for consoles first and then ported it to PC. Very, very stupid decision. That's why it doesn't look "that" great without mods.

Skyrim was unplayable on PS3. Seriously, I mean unplayable. After a certain update it simply wouldn't launch and hang on the first black screen. Deleted all saves, game data, rolled back ps3 firmware... nothing. Strange as it played fine on my fat PS3. Slim (which was supposed to be slightly better in some ways), not so much.

That being said I am playing modded Skyrim for the first time and I'm enjoying it. Its a good game to relax while drinking a beer when I need a break from other games.

Dark Souls was easily the best game of the PS3 generation. Much love to Demons, but I got several hundred hours out of Dark Souls.

I'm playing TLOU for the first time and I understand why so many people are raving about it. Holy phuck. Honestly the gameplay/puzzle style stealth mechanics arent my favorite, but the atmosphere literally pulls you in. I'm still scratching my head over how they managed to make a 10 year old system look so beautiful, also.

I thought RDR was boring as fuk. Come at me

Unplayable? Hardly. More than 200 hours in Skyrim on PS3 Crew, checking in.

if it's not working for you, I'm sorry to hear that, but I'm guessing you have a hardware issue or something.

That said, the bottom line is that with all the choices people have made here, I have to say that whether it's Skyrim, The Last of Us, Mass Effect, Fallout 3, or whatever - we're living in great gaming times.

I'm enjoying the hell out of all the great games, there just isn't enough time to play them all. Good livin' boys, embrace them and enjoy.



Skyrim was unplayable on PS3. Seriously, I mean unplayable. After a certain update it simply wouldn't launch and hang on the first black screen. Deleted all saves, game data, rolled back ps3 firmware... nothing. Strange as it played fine on my fat PS3. Slim (which was supposed to be slightly better in some ways), not so much.

That being said I am playing modded Skyrim for the first time and I'm enjoying it. Its a good game to relax while drinking a beer when I need a break from other games.

Dark Souls was easily the best game of the PS3 generation. Much love to Demons, but I got several hundred hours out of Dark Souls.

I'm playing TLOU for the first time and I understand why so many people are raving about it. Holy phuck. Honestly the gameplay/puzzle style stealth mechanics arent my favorite, but the atmosphere literally pulls you in. I'm still scratching my head over how they managed to make a 10 year old system look so beautiful, also.

I thought RDR was boring as fuk. Come at me

Skyrim isn't even the same game when comparing PC to console. If you say otherwise then you haven't tried it. Just graphics and weather mods alone give so much more immersion than console versions. On top of this there are all kinds of different races, questlines, areas to explore, immersion mods like "realistic needs and desires" that punish you for having disease, being thirsty/hungry, not sleeping, etc. Consoles have their place but TES/Fallout games really should be played on the PC for the best experience.

They look great on youtube, you will definitely notice the difference (moreso if you look at a side by side comparison of PC vs console). But youtube severely lowers the quality so keep that in mind, also capped at 30 fps I believe. The difference from 30 fps to 100 fps+ is huge, there is no blur at all, turning is smooth as butter.

I'm not sure if it would conflict or not as I haven't taken a look at it. Realvision imo is a hit or miss, some people like the more vivid colors while others think the original grey look is better, but I think it's depressing. Also Realvision has extra steps to download. Make sure you go to the mod page and read all the instructions. There are some extra steps, some other things you need to change in skyrimprefs.ini, as well as turning antialiasing off and anisotropic filter off. That's not all though, just make sure you follow all the steps on the page or it won't work. It will drop your performance but it's worth it imo.

It's up to the individual in some respects to say what constitutes "not working" vs "buggy". To me, if a bug makes the game constantly crash, lose saved data, or makes main gameline quests impossible to finish because NPC's don't spawn, or just stand there and don't work (ie cannot be interacted with, this is really common in ESO also), to me that game is unplayable because you can't finish it, or have to reload 20x per play session. Bethesda and Zenimax are notorious for bugs that completely render their games unplayable (for many of their users, not all) so it's really annoying (but also somewhat funny) when people act like every new game they release is awesome, and if it's not working for you, it's somehow YOUR machine that's to blame, even though if you read their forums (or any forum really) you can see that tons of people are having the same problems. With the PC version, you have an infinite number of possible system configurations, so it's hard sometimes to pinpoint if the problem is within the game software, or the players' hardware, but with consoles? C'mon man, you don't need to be a hardware engineer to know that a PS3 is a PS3 is a PS3.

Immersion alone makes skyrim better

no it doesn't

Oblivion's quests were hand written, skyrim's were procedurally generated (repetitive fetch quests)

oblivion had acrobatics, more diversity in loot, you could jump while attacking, more hot keys, actual rewards for your quests.

If you were a mage in skyrim and found the morokei mask and got the arch mage robes, you were stuck with that even at level 50 and up. because there was literally no diversity in loot.

Oblivion also had the Arena, Skyrim does not. Oblivion you had to repair your weapons and armor, which was smart because, if you found the most powerful sword in the game early on (umbra) you couldn't just use that forever and not use anything else. it was expensive to repair. so used it in particular situations, which allowed other swords in the game to have a general purpose.

combat was also more responsive and the more hotkeys allowed you not to have to pause the game every few seconds in combat just to change a spell or item..

Skyrim was a mess. Literally people who love skyrim are completely oblivious to those things, which makes me disregard their opinions. pay attention to the games you play.

Agreed

skyrim is a good game but thats as far as it goes

Oblivion is an incredible game. I much prefer it to skyrim. The guilds were far better, the world was more immersive, armour and weapons were done better IMO, I preferred the main storyline. The lack of attributes, birthsigns or classes in skyrim really irritates me, it means that any starting character basically always starts out the same, you cannot tailor characters to a certain role to anywhere near the level you can in oblivion.

The only thing better about skyrim is the graphics,animations and possibly the combat system

Funny you wrote of PS3 generation, considering Skyrim was for a long time, awful on PS3.

I have no problem with people saying Skyrim is the best game of this generation but for me:

Red Dead Redemption is.

Honourable mentions to; Fallout 3, Xcom Enemy Unknown, Alan Wake, Dark Souls, Uncharted 2 & The Last of Us.

I liked Skyrim for 2-3 weeks, was very addicted, but it didn't last very long for me. The game was freakin beautiful. But, it's hard to explain, it just felt so open world that I never really knew when I beat the game. Like, I did the main story and ****, but that was it. After doing the main story, I think I quit within a few days. Idk hard to explain.
