What a lazy remaster. Hardly looks any different. You are better off modding the original.
Damn listening to this music made me feel so nostalgic. I love Skyrim so much.
Damn the difference at 2:18 is actually huge
should i be impressed?
Thank god I got this for free on PC the most laziest remaster I've ever seen hardly any difference at all.
They should have just incorporated some of the best mods into the game as standard and called it a day and people would have loved it.
so they gave you a game with Shaders updated from 2.0 to 4.0... GG 200% profit on the same game
So... The Remastered version adds more fog and makes things harder to see? . . . because thats basically the biggest change i've noticed...
lighting, shadows, foliage, draw distance, and water are better. the textures are a slight upgrade but it's nothing drastic. luckily it's 64bit instead of 32bit so the mods will be significantly better and probably way more optimized for SSE. i still love it though!
Definitely seems like they should of done Oblivion and then maybe Skyrim on the next generation. Xbox Scorpio maybe
That's the most embarrassing non-remaster of all time. It's kind of crazy that they gave it away on PC yet are charging the full premium price for the console version..
Changing the lighting in the game could be considered a remaster now?
ok ill just put the brightness up on my monitor
The difference is a lot more noticeable in person, however, still insignificant.
I'm so bad at noticing the differences in these videos, the only thing that stood out to me was the change in contrast.
Reminds me of how glad I am we've moved past the bland, "gritty" earth-tone colors that dominated last gen. gaming.
I think what's more important is that the game is much more stable now and the framerates are also significantly better everywhere. Also, it runs on 64x.e.g. I had issues with Skyrim in Win 10, but those crashes and performance issues will no longer be there. Now we will be able to add more mods without risking performance as well. And hey, new creation kit. This is anything but useless, especially since it's free for PC, so why complain?
Obviously the current gen consoles will be seeing a bigger boost with the remasters compared to the PS3/360 vs the PC version compared to the original PC release.
The thing that most changed are the system requirements
Where is my Oblivion remaster???
It looks the same, bethesda drones will buy it anyway
It looks like the only things they changed are the brightness and the trees...
Just a money grab thats all
an improvement.looks better than fallout 4not worth moneymods do betterfeels bad man
Got this for free for having all the DLCs and Base Game on PC. If anything, this remaster provides a new foundation for Mods moving forward and less on improving the Skyrim experience since Nexus and Steam Workshop already have tons of mods that do that already.
The texture mods in Original is much better than this remaster
Better off downloading higher res textures from the workshop lmao.
The only difference I've seen is higher resolution, brighter saturation, more diverse lighting, forgetable depth of field, and higher draw distance. Which in my book is AMAZING for consoles 😂! This remaster was clearly meant for the console crowd, since PC can mod the graphics and such.
Lets be honest, besides the new lighting effects and better performance the game still looks like shit! Skyrim is one of the best games ever made but it needs mods to look really good. Bethesda thanks but modders do a better job when it comes to remaster your games!
So many people saying the Special Edition is a waste of money and that there's no difference..For starters there's a clear difference in terms of rendering capability. Better lighting/shadows, better antialiasing, more ground clutter, sharper textures, etc.And for whatever reason the people who say how shit the game is tend to ignore mentioning the best part about it.. IT'S 64 BIT!!For those who don't know what that means.. 64 bit basically means the game has access to more memory. in the original version the game was limited to using about 4GB of RAM..Now that limitation is gone the game can have a lot more going on without crashing. It also means modders can make more substantial mods than before. I don't know about the rest of you but I'm super keen on the idea of large scale battles between the Imperials and Stormcloaks or some huge Daedric invasions :D
so, it's skyrim with instagram filters
Veteran Skyrim players: you just got a free game but not really worth itNew players: just get the original and mod it, it'll look and run better
I'm not complaining because I got it free anyways lol
Thank God my friend is a sucker and bought and game shared this over priced game with me. I got more important things to buy like Final Fantasy XV which is a definite Game of the Year contender this year.
i like the original better....
take the original and download some texture mods theirs your special edition lol
Bought the special edition for PC and just wanted to make sure I wasnt going crazy of there being no difference almost
spend $60 or just mod the original one
I would easily forgive if there was no extra quests but I was at least expecting a change in the lip syncing.
Great graphics, but nit as great as the graphics you get from mods
Prefer legendary with immersive color saturation mod from Nexus.
literally no difference...
At least is running in 64 bit now and is much more optimized.. Mods will take care if the visuals.
Should have been named "Skyrim: Special Foliage Edition"
saw this in my steam library i literally didnt notice i had the remastered version too.. All they did was add more fog to some places and did some color correction :L
I can download free mods of the steam workshop and get a better graphical improvement.
We can all agree they should of made oblivion remasteted
''but but but mods...'' USE THAT TINY BRAIN OF YOURS, HOW DO YOU THINK THIS WILL LOOK WITH THOSE SAME MODS?
''hurr durr the original looks better'' SHUT YE FOOKIN MOUTH 64-bit DirectX 11 enough said
Hardly deserving of the Remastered title more like Skyrim console cash grab edition.
wow the original looks better in a lot of places...
god the differences are so subtlenot worth the asking price40$ sounds more reasonable
I just don't see how this justifies another $60Pass
Good but really unappealing with the $60 price tag especially when this is the season of new releases. Gonna have to wait for it to drop to $15.
Original Skyrim + SweetFX = More better than remaster! :P
tfw original looks better more atmospheric and with a soul.
true question is : 32bit modded vs 64bit modded
I seen NOTHING worth what their asking. Mods and the 2011 version are fine with me.
I think u can get much better graphics with mods on the original game
Let's just change the color pallet, hopefully nobody notices.
with some of these clips i even prefer the original
I'll wait for the $5 bin in a couple of weeks
Are there dialogue changes for guards in the Skyrim SE?
This brings back so many memories </33
Pc looks clearer (the original)
Damn, so many people hating so hard on ESS: SE/Remastered.
