    I bet they'll keep that ridiculous dialogue system from F4

    I really think they will. Each game they make has a bunch of RPG aspects removed from it, compared to their previous games. So it is fair to assume that eventually there will be no RPG left, which just leaves an action game. I think future Elder Scrolls will be all about Fus Ro Da-ing monsters into spikes and off cliffs or into barrels of explosive oil. If they focused on the action and removed all the crappy dialogue and miles of hiking, it would be pretty close to Dark Messiah.

    But I think they will make so many mistakes in the meantime. I would put money on the next game letting you become a dragon. Because it sounds soooooo orsuuum broo000s, but the reality will be dull.

    I think Todd will be #metoo'd, and the accuser will be a circus midget. A dangerhair whale will surface to take over BGS.

    This is why i dont like Bethesda's "BECOME BOSS OF EVERY GUILD" stuff in Elder Scrolls, shit doesnt change or matter anyway from being a ordinary grunt, except for that nice room to pile up dragon bones in, maybe even a dead-eyed wife which you cant fuck or knock up that sits at home, cooks you food once a day and give you less cash then what you find in an ordinary single dungeon run.

    That's why all those autistic attempts to simulate real life are fucking trash. At the end of the day the meat-and-potato features of every good RPG are all gamefied - exploring, looting, levelling, fighting, solving puzzles - and always will be. Pushing RPGs in the simulationist/survivalist direction is a dead end.

    I wont be surprised if we get to play around in Hammerfell, High Rock and Alinor in one game, since Bethesda's Tamriel game world maps keeps getting smaller and compressed by each game.

    Ehh... I get why you're saying that, but It seems far-fetched to me since it's not a connected space. Maybe an island off Hammerfell though for DLC, like that one the Redguard game was set on.

    Skyrim was them leaving behind the RPG aspect for an action game. They aren't ever going to drop the open world, besides that being what the Elder Scrolls identity is, there are plenty of action games in open worlds already. Besides, if they dropped the open world in a mainline Elder Scrolls it'd hurt sales.

    I think they can keep it open world as well as reducing the hiking, by letting you fly or at least move really fast. You could fly in the earlier games, sort of, but I think seeing as they have dragons in the game already, they will probably let the player fly at some point. Basically I think they will keep dumbing it down to the point that it doesn't even seem anything like an RPG anymore. I guess Skyrim was already like that, but still, I think they will take it even further because dumbing it down is what they are all about.

    Then when wizards invent firearms and autofire game will switch to CoD shooter.

    But truth is : IT Will be side scrolling 2d platformer where your created character must rescue Princess and collect Precious Deadra coins.

    Todd said they have such advanced technology and ideas lined up for TES VI that if they showed them now, people would not believe them. :M

    The Republic of Hahd is my favourite piece of TES lore (be it official or not).

    He and his wife Lady Nerevar both worked for TellTale, no idea what they're doing now that place is closed. They should be making their own TES killer with some other talented people. He's remembered for crazy metaphysical writings, and that had it's place, but most of MK's worldbuilding was terrestrial and gave the weird world believability. Imitators try and be weird for the sake of it, and TES has lost vision imo.
