My Modded Skyrim Looks Better Than Fallout 4

Skyrim released back in 2011, but I can’t help comparing it with Fallout 4 because they’re both run off of the same engine and even though Fallout 4 is the newer game it has quite a few similarities with Skyrim. 

This is not a bash article of Fallout 4. I’m in love with the game so far and have very few negative things to say, well… write, about it. This is just a graphics comparison, in a way, with Skyrim.

Now that I’ve gotten that out the way lets get this article started shall we?

Here is a screenshot I recently took of Fallout 4.

That’s a beautiful screenshot isn’t it? I think it is anyway. Fallout 4, when it’s running on all cylinders, is a really beautiful game and in moments like that it shines. The environments are absolutely beautiful. The character models on the other hand…

look bad. Look how dated they look. This is one of my complaints about the game. It’s nothing major, but I was expecting this game to at least have serviceable character models because it’s on new hardware.

Here is a screenshot of my Skyrim world

It’s beautiful. I can argue that it’s just as beautiful as Fallout 4, but of course my game is heavily modded, but my point is that is still looks better than Fallout 4 to me and my character textures blows Fallout 4’s out the park. Take a look.

Skyrim has aged pretty well. Obviously I’m using some texture mods on my Nord you see here, but the game looks fantastic.

Fallout 4 will most likely look 10 times better than Skyrim as more mods are released, but we shouldn’t need them. Bethesda should have delivered right out the gate and I’m a little disappointed in that.

I’m still in love with Fallout 4 and that’s not ever going to change, but I thought it would be a good idea to share this with everyone. I know I’m not the only one that’s noticed this.
