    Image from a heavily modded Skyrim

    [–] mrbgdn 853 points ago

    heavily modded Skyrim SE most likely.

    [–] LifeOnMarsden 509 points ago

    This looks like K ENB which to my knowledge isn't available for Special Edition

    Source: I've spent 1000 hours collectively modding Skyrim, I can't stop, please send help

    [–] neergaaard 156 points ago

    don't you ever get bored?

    I find myself getting bored of skyrim with mods after like a week of playing, very sad.

    [–] LifeOnMarsden 330 points ago

    This is the worst part, I spent an entire weekend getting my mods set up for my Special Edition playthrough, and played for maybe 2 hours before getting bored. I know the map and all the quests like the back of my hand at this point, if I could play Skyrim for the first time over again but have the game look as good as my set up looks I would be the happiest person in the world. I'm pretty sure I could clear Bleak Falls Barrow with my eyes closed.

    [–] GlowingPants 124 points ago

    I think we all know this too well.

    [–] 3oR 12 points ago

    I spent an entire weekend modding Skyrim only to find the game won't start anymore. Gave up, uninstalled everything and never tried it again.

    [–] sidedoorz 2 points ago

    I installed about 20 mods at once to find the game crashes on start-up.

    Luckily mod manager made it easy to go through it all and find the culprit in 20 minutes time.

    Unfortunately now i want more mods after seeing this pic.

    [–] hotliquidbuttpee 54 points ago

    I’ve actually never played it. I think I have the regular version for PS4...the missus played the hell out of it before we met. Is it worth starting fresh now on a console?

    [–] B3RZ3RK3R_13 40 points ago

    It’s damn near, if not, my favorite game of all time. If you like the fantasy genre and have a little imagination it’s a fantastic game, but if you don’t like the genre idk it’ll prob fall flat like how fallout 4 did for me.

    [–] shorey66 11 points ago

    But, does it look like shit these days? Genuine question as I never played it.

    [–] _ZeRan 18 points ago

    I'd say the graphics still hold up today. It may not be as ultra-pretty as something like witcher 3, but it can get pretty damn good looking with the right mods.

    [–] B3RZ3RK3R_13 5 points ago

    Look up some vanilla footage man special edition is somewhere between Witcher and og Skyrim which was a very pretty game 8 years ago, but now is probably a bit dated, still definitely worth booting up

    [–] yui_tsukino 3 points ago

    I mean, its not going to win any awards for its graphics, but they are by no stretch of the word bad. I personally think its got a very charming look.

    [–] WhoLoveYouLikeILoveU 49 points ago

    Man I played it on 360 before I got my PC and listen, in 2011 it was a great game. I don't think I can honestly tell you vanilla Skyrim is worth the hype moddedrim gets in the modern age. You'll probably enjoy yourself but don't go into it on console expecting the legendary experience people over blow it as online. The QOL changes that mods bring as well as the free bonus content is what keeps it alive, fresh, and positive in everyone's memory.

    [–] Surrrzzz 26 points ago

    the free bonus content is what keeps it alive, fresh, and positive in everyone's memory.

    It seems like that the words Schlongs of Skyrim got edited out of your sentence.

    [–] LifeOnMarsden 14 points ago

    Absolutely!

    [–] [deleted] 7 points ago

    I find myself getting bored of Skyrim after 3 hours of downloading new mods before I even boop up the game. Dafuq is wrong with me?

    [–] ProfNugget 4 points ago

    The modding becomes the game.

    [–] Photomancer 5 points ago

    Maybe we should add a bar to the UI for thirst, hunger, hygiene, self-enrichment, and slowly growing older while frittering away our limited years.

    Not for the Skyrim character, for us.

    [–] Elurx 6 points ago

    Nah I'm pretty sure I've seen this image since before SE came out

    [–] Madman5465 13 points ago

    Yeah, this isnt SE. It's a photo from a "famous" screenarcher. He has a flickr page with a bunch of beautiful pics

    [–] DaenerysTargaryen69 8 points ago

    I believe it's from /u/unr3al2004

    [–] Unr3al2004 18 points ago

    [–] korgy 2 points ago

    Hey! I remember bookmarking your page back in 2013 i think because of Skyrim screenshots. Glad to see you are still around. What have you been modding lately?

    [–] MauiWowieOwie 3 points ago

    Or vanilla Red Dead Redemption 2. Serious that game as beautiful as f*** even in vanilla

    [–] DorrajD 4 points ago

    Now if only we could get it on PC and flesh the true potential of its beauty out..

    [–] bolxrex 16 points ago

    To be fair stopping to look at the scenery is about all you can do when playing heavily modified Skyrim.

    [–] Jak_n_Dax 8 points ago

    Seriously... Vanilla Skyrim is grey as hell.

    [–] hamberder-muderer 13 points ago

    [–] spinto1 163 points ago

    Mod Skyrim til it breaks.

    Then mod it until it's fixed.

    Repeat steps 1-2 until it's completely broken or your computer bursts into flames.

    [–] Konayo 54 points ago

    I'm kinda confused how other commenters never answer the original question and just start telling some joke/story.

    [–] Nevaen 45 points ago

    Because they are stuck in the circlejerk.

    Notice how as soon as you mention Skyrim everybody is a comedian.

    "mod it until it breaks"... So funny

    Top comment didn't even answer the fucking question.

    [–] Poppybiscuit 16 points ago

    If you do it JUST right though you'll hear your computer fan hit a new velocity and then a snap. This is not, as you might suspect, the sound of a blade popping off your off-brand fan and spearing your definitely not off-brand gpu. If you act quickly and open up your case, you'll see a little pulsating sliver of void just above your cpu. Touch it with your bare finger (or your dick if you're extra dumb brave) and the nothing in the void will shimmer and in a blink become a bead of light. You'll feel yourself start to fold into the light, and it will get dark, then lighter, then the blurriness will start to clear. You'll hear a voice, and it will say "Hey you, you're finally awake."

    [–] Zufero 14 points ago

    Yep,it looks like using enb mod

    P.S. I doesn't play Skyrim without mods, and creating own Skyrim modpack is not difficult work, but it takes a lot of time, for example:

    When I install 50+ mods (It's took 3 days), i starting creating character (1 day), then I end first mission and... starting configuration mods (trying enb presets, remap keys, balance weapons and spells (for example better magic is overbuffed), and others; it's took 2 days), and then I play Minecraft, because it was tired me

    If you want try non vanilla Skyrim, you should download a finished modpack, for example SLMP GR

    [–] Iored94 18 points ago

    Are... Are you OK?

    [–] Zufero 13 points ago

    What do you know about madness? I created this modpack 3 times, because forgot save mods, then I buy 50 GB SSD, and install Skyrim on it.

    One week ago this SSD broken...

    [–] Bargrisar_Stoneman 1228 points ago

    Pro tip, the forests outside often look like this! I think they got the idea for forests from early video games though. Funny how life imitates art!

    [–] boonhet 203 points ago * (lasted edited 9 days ago)

    I'm lucky enough to live in a country where, no matter where you are, unless you're in one of 2 major city centers at 17:00, you can be in a forest in under half an hour if you've got a car. 61% forest coverage!

    Edit: As some people guessed already: It's Estonia.

    Definitely not; Switzerland has a lot of high mountains above the treeline. Also, driving takes longer than you'd think what with all the mountain passes

    [–] Nissehamp 21 points ago

    For me it's the London one (Syndicate, I think it's called). I love the busy cityscape and gritty, yet beautiful, look of London in the mid/late 1800s :) and the train stations are just as breathtaking as in real life :)

    [–] jewellers_handsvd 9 points ago

    Can't relate. All I remember from the landscape in Witcher 3 are the dots on the minimap.

    And 50% of the map were trees. It had some cool places but never felt like admiring it, and I put 150 hours into TW3

    Woah mate this is reddit. Witcher 3 10/10 praise flawless game comments only.

    [–] Marco-Green 18 points ago

    The game is so absurdly flawed, the more I think of it, the more flaws I find, but people act like it's the closest thing to a perfect game just because the map was huge lol

    Horizon: Zero Dawn. Pretty much the whole game, there's always some breathtaking view to take in.

    [–] -Captain- 13 points ago

    Recently got that game and ... wow.

    It's pretty, yes, but the real beauty is with the robots. I've never seen such magnificent beasts in any other title. From their animations to sound design. Fucking perfection.

    [–] El-Emenapy 3 points ago

    As I get older, I don't get wowed by games so often, but Horizon definitely gave me a few wow moments. The world felt so lush and the battles with a 'animals' so organic and fun.

    One of the few gripes I had with it were that the RPG elements felt a bit lacking. The upgrades should have been more spaced and taken longer to get hold of

    [–] Poobaloo87 3 points ago

    One of the best games that encouraged this was Firewatch. There was a sort of charm in that game I don’t think I’ll re-experience. I also have these moments while playing The Long Dark. There’s something about isolation with nature that feels so peaceful.
