Leaderboard: Elder Scrolls Online vs. Skyrim HD
You might think this a biased Leaderboard for an MMORPG website to craft, but truthfully, I was an Elder Scrolls fangirl before I was an MMORPG player. Daggerfall was an ancient, pre-MMORPG obsession of mine, and I carried that forward with me into Morrowind, Oblivion, and Skyrim, the last three of which currently enjoy a permanent home on my PC with countless gigabytes of mods between them.
So with Skyrim’s HD re-release this weekend, I’ve been torn between spending time trying to make my old mod loadout work (sigh) and actually firing up Elder Scrolls Online. ESO I can play with my husband. But Skyrim I can mod. Skyrim is bleak and grey; ESO is lush and gorgeous. ESO works out of the box, while Skyrim has to be finessed into what I’ll tolerate as a playable-enough state. Too hard to choose! You choose: Which one should win our Leaderboard face-off? Elder Scrolls Online or Skyrim HD?
