Funny i had to find out this video due to a random comment on another article. :/
Oh well, at least they bothered to make the damn video after all.
Good going Elder Scrolls!
Awesome! ES has been one of my favorite series this generations (along with Fallout and Mass Effect). I didn't play the games before Oblivion, but Oblivion and Skyrim were amazing experiences that sucked up hours upon hours of my time. They were truly immersive games. Definitely going to be picking up the ES Online when it comes out.
this video feels forced, hardly any thought went into it. I was hoping for some of the staff to recall their favorite moments or something. instead all we get is a basic rundown of what platforms tes started on and where its branched out.
GTA V has too much hype. To be honest the whole GTA franchise kinda sucks, only GTAs i played were vice city and gta 3, i think i played the one with the black dude for like 5 minutes (the gunshot sound effects were kinda cool, lol). Both i never finished because they were to boring, i would just lose interest in the quests (or missions as you gta freaks like to call them, sorry for using a term related to the game the BEAT YOU HAHAHA.). But yeah, I'd lost interest in the quests, beat random people in the street, get bored and turn it off (good thing i never purchased any gta game with my own money lol). Its just a stupid game that goes overboard in sex and violence and cheap gimmicks to get ahead, which is why most people like it, as most people have the the intelligence of level of a pile of dog shiii. Glad to see a real game, with a real story, that requires real intellect win over some dumbed down buttons mashing pice of crap that 12 years olds and grown men who are still mentally 12 year olds enjoy.
they're still showing GTAV footage and pictures even though it wasn't released yet when contest\polls happened...too bad it didn't help them win then either ;)
Elder Scrolls is my choice. The Half Life series may be the best but not a lot of that has been released lately.
LOL... No way, at last!
Maybe this will finally shut up the conspiracy theorists as to Gamespot being bribed by Rockstar... I did say maybe?
I'm sure there will still be some who will complain.
This was month ago, why put video now? ooh yes GTA V hype has gone low that's why Rockstar ain't payn anymore for GTA V advertising.
Skyrim sucked and saying that as a big fan, MGS is still 100 times better then elder, story telling, immersion and gameplay, cant believe this shit honestly
Elder scrolls beat MGS, you people have no idea about story telling, you really like running from a to b without emotional content whatsoever, all you do is do quests for people, its called being a bitch
As expected you waited till the GTA V launch week was long over.
Can't take you seriously when you act like this, gamespot
@hampton2003 Agree. It feels like they finally took a half hour off from shamelessly and mercilessly plugging GTA V to make this little vid to shut up the majority of players who voted for ES. In a way they've got a point though, your avg GTA player probably doesn't know how to access a gaming web site (no offense to the GTA fans that are here reading this: you probably don't represent the avg GTA player). Though that beggars the next question: why mercilessly plug the game when over half of your site visitors prefer something more sophisticated ...
@heguain I been waiting for this video for some time now. Glade it's finally here.
More like the beginning of something completely different that has nothing to do with Bethesda game studios and does not affect TES at all.
@wexorian don't be an idiot.
@WolfgarTheQuiet what's MGS?
@WolfgarTheQuiet You have to make three comments on this? Compensating much?
@WolfgarTheQuiet Sad that you game didn't won the price?
Yes, insults and accusations of bad taste are going to give you soooo much credit.
@AuronAXE Nope, Morrowind came out 11 years ago, making the game of the decade either Oblivion or Skyrim according to voters. While they are good games, I think a lot of people agree that there are more deserving games, like Super Mario Galaxy, World of Warcraft, Half-Life 2, Halo 2, Battlefield 2, etc.
@AuronAXE I think so
Complain because they didn't announce it, complain now that they do?
Come on Saketume, you are not that cynical?
I normally like what you have to say mate, but this seems beneath you!
@Xenro4 MGS beats it in every aspect
@valium88 You wish...
GTA hype has gone down. So that is the sole reason as to why now?
*Double Barrelled Facepalm*
It wouldn't be something innocent, say for example... GS has been busy with the GTA launch and other more important work?
Oh no, that would be too sensible.
Oh and eh... GTA Online has just launched, so that puts that theory of yours out the window! lol.
