I still like Skyrim way more than BotW. I can't play BotW beyond the 90h without getting bored (got all costumes, temples and the bigger missions), whereas I'm well over the 100h in Skyrim and I haven't beaten even half of the quests.

With that said, I'd love to get the climbing ability on Skyrim, it would solve so much mountain climbing there...

To be fair, I'd say ANY game that holds a person's attention for more than twenty hours is a great game. 



I put something like 200 hours into the Switch version, so it certainly still holds up for me lol

You're not wrong, but that's because Skyrim itself is almost 7 years old and videogames have come a lot further since it was released. It's so 2011.

Look at the other games that actually released alongside Skyrim in 2011, to see how far ahead of the rest of the field it was at the time and why it's been so fondly remembered by people. For many people who were just jumping in to videogames through the 7th generation, it was the peak RPG experience. Much like Final Fantasy VII on the PlayStation or Knights of the Old Republic on the Xbox.

I think one great comparison to make is to highlight a specific game that also released in 2011; The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings. Look at the progress made between that game and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Look at the progress made by CD Projekt Red and hope to the Nine Divines that Bethesda can do something similar in terms of quality.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword was also released in 2011, and look how Nintendo upped their game for Breath of the Wild in 2017.

There's a lot of games from 2011, and long before that, that I would say have aged well, as far as gameplay goes. FFVII and KoToR both hold up to the test of time IMO. I'm speaking strictly gameplaywise here though, and not graphics. I never played the Witcher 2, but I might one day. Until I do, Witcher 3 is hard for me to follow plotwise. 

Skyward Sword is dated, but in a good way IMO. Nintendo stuck to the same tried and true Zelda formula for decades. Some gameplay like 2D platformers, and turn based combat in JRPGs still work well to this day. 

I would still recommend Skyrim to anybody that hasn't played it. Still a good game, but just not as good as it used to be. At least without mods. But then again, maybe I just have Star Syndrome. Maybe I've played this game thousands of hours, collecting all 120 stars fifteen times over, and now I'm just burnt out on it? 



The sentence below is false. 
The sentence above is true.

Oh, I didn't say BotW isn't a great game, I'm just saying I like Skyrim more.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

It was dated on release, Bethesda animations were the worst, idk if they finally updated them in Fallout 4?

Deus Ex (2000) - a game that pushes the boundaries of what the video game medium is capable of to a degree unmatched to this very day.

They were improved, but probably still regarded as fairly mediocre.

Visual quality seems to have stagnated with Bethesda titles since Oblivion dropped in my opinion... Before they were pushing boundaries with stuff like dense foliage in Oblivion, pixel shader water in Morrowind. It really set them apart from other games like Two Worlds, Gothic, Witcher etc'.

Of course it does - it came out in 2011.

Pete Hines (Bethesda PR) said on record at E3 last year that Bethesda is NOT working on Elder Scrolls 6, like at all. It's not even being discussed.

True. They are supposedly working on two big, new IPs.
