Bethesda fans have crowned The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim as the developer's greatest game.
While millions have gamers have launched themselves into Starfield at superliminal speed, for many, the game's sci-fi aesthetic and theme just won't be all that appealing.
Check out our review for Starfield below!
Originally released all the way back in 2011, Skyrim was actually so ahead of its time that it warranted a re-release, and then another, and then another, and you get the idea.
Its popularity hasn't dwindled over the years, thanks to a solid story, action-packed gameplay, some wonderful questlines, DLC, and of course, mods.
It'd be an understatement to say the mod community has kept the game alive with new content, often in the form of gameplay and graphical tweaks, but sometimes enormous, original story expansions.
Many gamers still believe Skyrim to be as fantastic as the day it was dropped, and recently fans crowned it the king of Bethesda's major RPGs.
Through a poll on Twitter, we asked gamers to select what they believe to be the greatest Bethesda game of all time, with options consisting of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, Fallout 3 and Starfield.
In a not-so-surprising turn of events, Skyrim reigned supreme, stealing an extraordinary 50% of the votes. Coming second place was Starfield, followed by Fallout 3 in third place and finally Oblivion.
While we can’t argue all four games aren’t quality RPGs, there’s just no denying that Skyrim has something about it that keeps gamers coming back. Whether it be the gorgeous landscapes, the colourful cast of characters, mighty dragons and classic Bethesda jank/bugs.
Who knows though, Starfield is less than two weeks old by this point, and as more players progress through its vast in-game galaxy, maybe public opinion will change and keep Skyrim a direct competitor…
