Welcome to our new comparison where we show you how much Bethesda has improved when it comes to visual design. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is shaping up to be a fantastic game, and all the components including the visuals have received a massive overhaul. Bethesda mentions that they’re using a new engine, but considering the gameplay videos and screenshots released till now, we think it’s a modified version of the infamous Gamebryo engine. The graphics look really good in Skyrim, so we take a look at how the developers have improved the game compared to the 2006 awesomeness: Oblivion.

Argonian


Argonian

This reptilian class always looked a bit weird in Oblivion, and here in Skyrim along with other races, they seem to have undergone a massive change. They have a lot of polygons and the texture quality is superior. Argonians are creatures that can come and walk around on land but they are mainly made to be a water creature which can easily be told by their water breathing ability.
