Even with this misstep, I can’t help but keep jumping back into Skyrim. For a game that I’ve spent countless hours on multiple platforms with before that’s incredible. I never expected to be sucked back in, but the level of immersion while exploring this epic world is almost unbelievable. For anyone that’s dreamed of a virtual world while reading Ready Player One or watching Sword Art Online, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR takes us a major leap forward into that reality.
Exploring Skyrim has never been more awe inspiring that being able to step into the world myself. Being able to feel like I have full control of my body, the aiming of my spells, and the swing of every weapon amplified the immersion as I explored the highest peaks and deepest caves. This is a game that I’ve experienced before, in a way that I’ve never experienced it before.
Because of its diminished graphics and clumsy combat controls, Skyrim VR definitely isn’t the best way to actually play Skyrim. However, if you leave the difficulty on the default lowest setting and roam the world as a god who can slay enemies with the flick of the wrist, it’s a good way to experience Bethesda’s legendary RPG from a whole new perspective.
