I am SO hyped for TESVI!! What country would you want next? I think the Summerset Isles would be the best!
Aaaah yes me tooo! But I’m afraid we gotta be patient, even the announcement is still FAR far away :/ But I’m absolutely ready to wait if Bethesda wanna take their time. I mean Fallout 4 is STILL running on the Creation engine, which is based on frickin Gamebryo, which was the engine they used for frickin Morrowind! What I’m sayin is… I’m ready to wait another year if it means Bethesda finally gives us a new engine.
Anyway! Countries! I think I’m gonna rank them from the ones I’d like to see least to the one I’d like best. Exempt from the rating are Morrowind, Cyrodiil and of course Skyrim for obvious reasons. Also Orsinium, cuz it’s just WAY too small to get its own game.
First and foremost I gotta say that I’m probably gonna be happy no matter which region we’ll get. Learning new things about ANY country and ANY race is amazing to me. It’s just that I’m slightly more curious about some places than others.
While I do think Bretons are interesting, this is the place that I’m least fascinated by. Not saying they couldn’t do amazing things with it, but I fear that if the next game takes us to High Rock, it’s gonna be another game full of ye olde European-centric medieval settings, and imho we really had our fair share of that. Also. Idk. If they do High Rock, I really think the fandom’d go ape shit over the third game in a row being about humans.
While this is another human country, I’m a bit more into the idea of TES VI - Hammerfell. Maybe cuz it’d be a land full of PoC, maybe cuz a desert region would be really interesting to explore, maybe cuz I think the lore behind the Redguards is just really interesting.
I know a looot of people who’d give their left foot for an Elsweyr game, and. While. I. Agree. I’m also. Biased. I’m gonna talk about that later tho. Yes, Elsweyr would be frickin cool. It would be a complete departure from human AND mer culture, which I’m 100% here for, especially cuz the beast races have been neglected for AGES now. Also Khajiit are awesome. And jungles and all that jazz would be really different from what we’ve had so far and nice to explore. I bet the game would be full of fun NPCs and lore. Buuuut I’m. Biased ;D
I think this one’s the most likely option. I see a lot of people discussing Summerset as a setting for the next game and I see both the appeal and the logic. Also I think that right after Skyrim, which cast the Altmer as kind of the ultimate antagonist, it would be really interesting to go to their home land, to learn about their culture and their struggles and to show them from a sympathetic point of view.
Goood I’d be SO HAPPY if we got Valenwood…!! I love Bosmer, I’m super into the idea of an Elder Scrolls game that has huge forests with frickin cities up in the trees! And I mean man, are Bosmer cool! Ever read up on the Wild Hunt? Shit’s AMAZING…! Their entire culture is this hilarius clusterfuck of “look at these tiny nature loving elves they love trees so much THEY WILL LITERALLY FEED ON NOTHING BUT MEAT, SOMETIMES EVEN OTHER BOSMER’S CORPSES so they won’t have to eat plants!”
…Alright that oversimplifies the matter but how cool would that be, to just be part of this crazy amazing culture?
I don’t think it comes to anyone’s surprise that I’m a HUGE fan of everything Argonian. It was the fact that I could play an Argonian that got me into TES in the first place, and I mean LOOK AT THEM!
Ok here’s the thing. I think we know FAR too little about the beast races. But compared to Khajiit, even Argonians got the short end of the stick. And that’s why I think I’m a bit biased against Elsweyr. Beast races are kind of the underdogs of TES. And if the Khajiit got their own game, I think I’d be a bit miffed lol. Which. Is. Of course. Utter bs. But you know.
Anyway, I feel like the Argonian culture is the one we know least about? And I wanna know so many things!! I wanna learn about their ways, their history, their politics, their EVERYTHING! I wanna see all the places an Argonian can grow up, I wanna hear all their stories and read all their books, I wanna see their cities, and I mean. Not just in ESO. I like ESO, don’t get me wrong, but. You know?
It’s time Argonians stopped being typecast as poor devils, slaves and criminals in the TES main line games. It’s time we see them in their own land, as families, friends, communities! As workers, artists, authors, merchants, scholars, and as rulers!
…Yeah I got a bit carried away towards the end there but I AM SO FIRE EMOJI ABOUT ARGONIANS OK
