What Skyrim Would Look Like On The NES


There are two things that make games better.  Dragons and 8-bit soundtracks.  Thanks to YouTube user Gilboron, Bethesda's Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim now has both.  In the video, Gilboron creates what the Skyrim intro would look like if Bethesda had created Elder Scrolls V for the Nintendo Entertainment System.

The greatest hting about this video is how true it is to the NES era.  From the cheesey animations, to the over-the-top text, to the generic NES explosion sound effects, this definitely looks like an intro we would see had Skyrim been released in the 80s.

P.S. The password to beating Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is up, down, up down, left, right, A, B, select, start.
