It’s possible that you do know some of the items in Did You Know Gaming’s? look at Skyrim, but there might be a few that surprise you. Here are some highlights:
• Bethesda could have made official Game of Thrones games, based on the books, but turned down the offer to focus on Skyrim.
• Skyrim is an intentional shift toward surreal and unique culture, a direct move away from the generic fantasy themes of Oblivion and an attempt to recapture the feeling of exploration from Morrowind.
• The game’s main theme was recorded with a choir of over 30 people, with three performances layered to create the effect of having 90 voices.
• Lars Battle-Born has fully voiced dialogue thanking you for killing Braith, suggesting that child-killing was at one point possible in the game’s development.
