Skyrim has a hidden feature I wish I'd known about 10 years ago

Skyrim has a hidden feature I wish I'd known about 10 years ago

That's an enormous help, but a little bit late

We'd like to think we know a lot about Skyrim, yet when a Reddit post appeared that discussed some of its in-game features, we realised we'd be overlooking an incredibly useful aspect of the gameplay for sometime. The annoyance we felt (at ourselves) cannot be overstated.

Life in Skyrim isn't easy. Not only do strange mysteries leave a sour taste in our mouths once we uncover the truth, but there's also a lot of ambitious free downloads that demand our attention. In short, it's easy to get overwhelmed and struggle to find where you're meant to adventure next.

There's nothing like sitting back and watching The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim trailer to get you ready for action!

This is why a hidden feature we wish we'd known about earlier is a total godsend. So much so that it's painful to know we've had to struggle without it up until now. Fortunately, we're not alone in being unaware of this feature, which a slight comfort.

Whenever the map feels too complicated to navigate, especially as you're travelling to your next quest, there's an option for you to bring up the quest's location on your map. We know – we're shocked to learn this too! According to a fellow gamer on Reddit, "You can find your quest marker easier just by hitting the show on map button found at the bottom of your journal."

The one reply saying "What?" is us here at GAMINGbible as we come to terms with what's been lost (mainly our sanity) over the years while we explored the map aimlessly.

Frustrating though it is to learn of this feature so late in the game, it's one we'll remember and use regularly when we inevitably start up another playthrough of Bethesda's beloved RPG. Let's face it, we're going to be playing this game until are fingers bleed... or at least until The Elder Scrolls VI releases. Assuming we're still alive by then.
