I feel like Skyrim is dying. A great game legend. Really, how many people are playing it these days? Almost none. Are you playing it? I think Skyrim needs to be remembered, at least. With the storm of kids and squeakers,(no offence) Call Of Duty is all that is played anymore. Who remembers the game Brutal Legend? Unreal Tournament? Gears Of War 2? Everyone has to know Left 4 dead, except todays kids. What do you think? Do you think Skyrim is dead? Call Of Duty overthrowing the Gaming industry? Is Half Life 3 going to take the Gaming community by storm? Time will tell.

    Fast-paced shooters are unquestionably taking over a the larger part of the gaming industry, and slower, story driven games might thus seem to be suffering from that.

    Hardly true though, the people whom originally played such games will not give in to playing these generic shooters.

    To be honest I doubt you can really speak of dying, when talking about a single player game, anyway. I mean an online multiplayer will die when there's too little people to fill a single server, within reasonable latency range, that is.

    As long as you can play the game the way you could at before, it will be as alive as it was at any point, not counting the forums I suppose, those will die eventually indeed.

    What about Fallout 3 then? Pretty much nearly the same game, only this time set in the future, and it's got guns.

    And there's a robot that kills communists. Why wouldn't you love that?

    There's not a lot of magic. In fact, no magic. The only magic really is Nuclear Bombs, which exist in real life.

    > Call Of Duty overthrowing the Gaming industry

    LOL

    I dont think that skyrim is dying (skywind btw),
    everyone who was able to play games from very beggining era of 3d will remember most of good games ;) Wolfenstein 3d !, Quake, Duke, Unreal, Turok, Doom, hl etc.

    I hope HL3 wont be next DNF, but something like Portal 2.

    You wrote " Almost none. " ;)

    Skywind is a mod for skyrim ofc, adding whole morrowind worldmap and story.

    And people will remember what they did like, like I loved carmageddon and half-life.

    Yeah, Almost NONE are playing it, KIDS are playing COD, and almost everyone is playing COD, Xbox 1, or anything else. Just because YOU play it does not mean everyone else in the world plays it.

    The thing about Skyrim is that it runs out of steam before the end, so many people will sort of stop playing it suddenly because they get bored of the same-old, then come back later, don't know what the fuck they were doing and don't bother going through everything again.

    It's not dying, actually. This game doesn't die.
