50 reasons why Skyrim is, and will always be, the most beautiful game of all time

0

I already know what you’re thinking, that there are better-looking games than Skyrim. You would be wrong, though. After releasing on PC back in November 2011, Skyrim became more then an open-world RPG, it became an easel for digital artists to paint their pictures on. And the best of the best post their efforts on the ENBSeries forum, a website dedicated to graphics modifications for the most popular games (GTA IV, Dark Souls, Fallout are also on that list).

Skyrim though, is the most popular for graphic modders and the results are simply breathtaking. TheSkyrim forum on ENBSeries has millions of views, and tens of thousands of entries, from heavily modified in-game characters to screenshots so real you’ll have to look twice. Why is Skyrim the most beautiful game of all time? Because of screenshots like these.
