A Return to Skyrim

I got the remastered edition of Skyrim for free on Steam since I already owned the original, so I thought I would give it another playthrough.  It's been years since I touched it and I was excited to jump into the world again.

And the first night was great!  I wandered, I got familiar with the world again, and most of the game kinda came back to me.  But after that first night the magic quickly faded.

It's not a bad game at all, it's just a game that I've already spent hundreds of hours with.  I was able to have fun for a play session or two but that seemed to jog all my memories of the game so after that point it felt like I was just going through the motions in a game I already knew.

I'm really glad that Skyrim Special Edition exists for those who missed it last console generation.  It's a great game if you haven't played it before.  But for me I think Skyrim has already taken up enough of my life.  I'll just wait until the next Elder Scrolls game instead.

I can't complain too much, they did give it to existing owners on Steam for free!


  1. Go mod it. You can make an almost completely different game. Many Oldrim mods have already been ported over to the SE edition.

    1. I started to do this but I was playing the first week the Special Edition was out and there weren't many mods yet. I'll probably wait for more of them to move over and then try it.
