why didn't Bethesda get a new engine when developing skyrim?

Take a look at Oblivion in it fifth anniversary edition - it's much better than the first release edition. Give it a chance and we will get Skyrim in it Game of the Year version and Fifth Anniversary Edition.


What changed in the fifth anniversary ed?

Would be neat if they updated the engine or something.

It's a modified version of Gamebryo.

Nad I have yet to find bugs. 2 characters with over 100 hours each. no bugs.

Oh I,m sure theres some bugs here and there, but it's not as bad as everyone says.

But I'm playing on pc not on 360, this might be why i got no bugs

On the 6 or so characters I did I never encountered any severe bugs either, nothing gamebreaking. some floating stuff or sometimes textures not loading right, that's about it.

They straight up lied about getting a new engine when first talking about/announcing Skyrim.

Changing the name of something doesn't make it new, it's exactly like taking a crappy car engine and putting it in a new frame. Not new, just a crappy engine inside a pretty car.

They *did* tweak it, but obviously not much. Just enough to make the graphics not so crappy, and thaaaaat's it. Oh, and they added endless fetch quests.

Really, I liked Skyrim, but I'm not one of those fans who let's everything slide. It was a dick move of them to promote f***ing gamebryo 2.0 as a new engine. I learned of it before buying, but damn did it piss me off how they talked about it like it was something remotely "new."

Yeah man, I am furious now that I know they said some things that later turned out to not be true, I will never play Skyrim again because apparently my love for it was based on LIES.

I knew they were lying as soon as they said it.

Well, they did try to improve it into something spectacular... but ended up pulling a Molyneux.

Doesn't hating on things you couldn't do better yourself just make you feel so cool and intelligent?


Yes. yes it does.

It is our job as gamers to give constructive criticism(I know saying ''Gamebyro is a piece S***'' is not constructive) to help the companies do better next time. that's the way I see it.
