The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Didn't Look Like This on the PS3
Posted by Sammy Barker
To be fair, it didn't boot half of the time
As much as it pains us to say it, the PlayStation 3 didn’t provide the best home for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. In addition to late expansion packs and the usual roster of Bethesda bugs, the game was borderline broken on Sony’s popular platform. Things did improve over time, but not to a degree where it could be earnestly recommended.
Indeed, with practically limitless horsepower and a vast array of mods on offer, the PC will always offer the best place to play the sprawling fantasy role-playing game – and these character portraits illustrate as much. Photographed by ordinary players, this touching gallery of images has been collated by Andrew Cull, and is a real sight to behold.
While various mods have been allowed for the creation of these, there’s not a single Photoshop airbrush in sight. But why are we posting this on a PlayStation site? Well, for starters, it’s a slow news day – but it’s also got us thinking about how good a hypothetical The Elder Scrolls VI would look on the PlayStation 4. Yeah, we’re drooling, too.
