Whatever it takes to keep these guys well-paid during the 4-5 year development cycle between Elder Scrolls games.

Once, a long time ago, there was a great developer. It was only known as BioWare, it released such classics as Baldur's Gate, KOTOR and Neverwinter Nights. Even it's newer RPGs, like Mass Effect and Dragon Age: Origins were great. But then...then came Mass Effect 2. And after that Dragon Age 2. Now, a new dawn beckons, and new developers take BioWares place. We greet you Bethesda and CD Projekt Red.

Once, two years before Baldur's Gate was released, there was a developer called Bethesda Softworks and a game called The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall. Don't get me wrong, I love the BioWare classics, but Bethesda isn't exactly new to the game.

Skyrim is the Windows 7 to Oblivion's Vista. There've been a few little improvements to the engine and interface, and some of Oblivion's cinematic aspirations remain, but at the core they just focused on making it fun and boundless rather than over-controlled and specific.

They pulled back the curtain way too much in Oblivion, both with the Imperials and with the Daedra. Those are supposed to be mysterious antagonists.

Bethesda deserves the success. They made a hell of a game. I shouldn't even be typing this now, I should be playing.

Once, not-so-long ago, there were people who complained about developers who endlessly iterated without changing the fundamentals of the game unless it was a game they liked. Then changing anything was "dumbing down."
