Video games have a strange tendency to age the people that play them; one minute, it seems like a game or console is cutting-edge, the next, it's now retro.

Released on November 11th, 2011 on PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3, the game quickly became one of the most highly-acclaimed of all-time.

Skyrim will be 10 years old in one week. There was 5 years in between Oblivion and Skyrim. Can we please have elder scrolls 6 now— Leg (@CombatBootsGuy) January 5, 2021

This year will be 10 years since Skyrim was released (the first time) and no sign of The Elder Scrolls VI in sight... pic.twitter.com/E4PSthl7Wn— Corbin (@ItsCorbeano) January 4, 2021
To be fair, that doesn't sound so bad...
