Do you want TES to take a more mature route?

#11SoulOfFaythPosted 1/6/2013 11:33:37 AM
Yeah I guess I'd like to see it more Fallout-style in that way, it would be a fun concept if they expanded on skooma and moonsuger use for instance. I wouldn't mind swearing either because it seems natural in many circumstances and for many characters. TES could be a little grittier, it's a tough and harsh world. As long as they don't just go for shock-value for its own sake. It shouldn't become a gimmick.

No. Leave that to The Witcher series.


Why?


I think it makes games like the Witcher more unique and different from TES. TES doesn't need to be like The Witcher. I like how both games handle things differently.

It's funny because Witcher has a lot more porn in the game than in the book.

Relax, it's just a game.

To be fair, Daggerfall existed before ESRB, and there were some pretty f***ed up things in that game.

I think Skyrim did a perfectly fine job displaying mature content, but I wouldn't mind if we got a bit closer to Daggerfall levels in future installments. Priestesses wearing those togas that reveal one boob, or dungeon decor like a corpse hanging from a noose, or piles of decapitated heads. Those Raider camps are gore bags in Fallout were pretty heavy.

At the same time, I'm not sure TES is going for a particularly dark tone. Skyrim's graphics are particularly more "gritty" than it's predecessors, but the tone of Skyrim's quests and plots aren't necessarily darker than they've been in the past.

But you really shouldn't ignore the stuff that's already there. Aside from editing a few in-game books for Khajiit wangs and what you will, the lore can get pretty brutal, especially around the Daedric Princes.

True, but Bethesda including nudity won't get them anything but less sales so I hope they don't try to do it again... I don't mind it being more gritty though but I don't want Fallout levels of violence

A lot of Fallout's violence was just hamming it up, and part of the dark humor. Of course, gore bags and decapitated corpses nailed to the wall was all about the hostile post-apocalyptia environment, so that kind of heavy stuff probably only belongs in certain dungeons. Like how Forsworn like to mount fresh goat heads on pikes.

You're probably right about the nudity, though. I can't see that ending well for Bethesda.

Heh, come to think of it, they would have to do some serious toning down if they ever revisited Daggerfall, just to keep it at an M rating. One of the means of curing lycanthropy involved forcefully turning a child born with the curse, and then killing them in wereform. That s*** doesn't fly in 2012.

Agreed, still would love to see a Daggerfall remake though

Personally, I don't think an increase in maturity will affect sales or Bethesda's reputation.. Look at the COD series. I believe Black Ops 2 is an 18 and their sales are perfectly fine.
Additionally, the next installment is going to sell a lot, more then Skyrim I think, mainly because of how big TES:V is. So, if they were to include more mature content, it would make next to no difference on their sales.

As long as they don't go overboard then a little bit more maturity is always good.

However, maybe maturity belongs within Fallout's world.
