>I've always been into Western RPGs, and that's what we make. I've never been into Japanese RPGs because I want to roam, and traditionally they don't let you do that. I find that in Japanese art, and science fiction and fantasy, that it's super fantastical. In Western stuff, it tries to get more realistic, as much as it can for what it is. So like, we'll approach it like- this is fantasy with elves, and swords, and dragons, but it has to feel real, like this could happen, or did happen, even with Mass Effect and the way it approaches science fiction. But when you see the Japanese ones, it's crazy on another level...like that looks cool, but that's nuts, it's really high fantasy, it's really crazy science fiction...and then the earth eats itself...and then why are there nukes, and...I have trouble with my father and mother. I don't get into that stuff, I think because I can't wrap my hands around it, so it doesn't suspend my disbelief in the way like- sort of like Red Dead, where immediately you think this is all real, I'm here, I'm doing this, and these are real places in the West even though they're made up.

Oblivion and Skyrim are high fantasy. Gods, ghosts, and magic are all still there, it's just Cyrodill and Skyrim are more ordinary looking places compared to Morrowind.

That's not what low fantasy means at all, moron.
What you described is still high fantasy with low magic.

Rule of thumb: Everything set in it's own world is high fantasy.
I bet your faggot ass thinks Game of Thrones is low fantasy as well.
>>
>>275102204
No, next we're going to have a game set in the GoT universe
>>
>>275103380
Yes, but Skyrim is nowhere near low fantasy. You're facing a blight of dragons with the magic power of your voice that can clear the skies, push people at ludicrous speeds and set fire on shit, while also meeting with ancient gods and going back in the past and to Valhalla.

You want an example of what Low Fantasy actually is, read "The Owl Service".
>>
your opinion is objectively wrong since oblivion managed to rape the lore the hardest out of the three games, while skyrim despite obviously being made for console babbies was still immersive.
>>
The only good thing about Skyrim is that it re-introduced the Empire as what it was always supposed to be, a sort of Roman civilization.

Oblivion was so shit from a Lore perspective it's embarassing.
>>
>>275104748
Man I thought high fantasy was like good vs evil epic struggle bullshit and low fantasy was your ragtag band of adventurer out to accomplish something comparably more mundane. Like the difference between LOTR and Conan.
>>
>>275103380
If we're going to try to "quantify fantasy", then oblivion's the low fantasy one.

holy fuck you are deluded.
High fantasy is defined as fantasy fiction set in an alternative, fictional ("secondary") world, rather than the real, or "primary" world. The secondary world is usually internally consistent, but its rules differ from those of the primary world. Low fantasy is characterized by being set in the primary, or "real" world, or a rational and familiar fictional world, with the inclusion of magical elements.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_fantasy#Genre_overview

Its clearly saying you are only half right
>>
>>275103380
It might be less mystical and "grand" than Morrowind, but it's by no means low fantasy. That's like saying Internal Affairs is a documentary, because it's more realistic than The Bad Lieutenant.

Adding on to this, in the process he even managed to save the protagonist from the chopping block. Far from wronging the protagonist, his first action in the plot is to save their life, albeit indirectly.

In fact, that situation in and of itself is pretty indicative of the shit writing. Why did Alduin even attack that shitty village? He never attacks another, and he wasn't even after anything. He just did it to be a set piece, and for no other reason.

I believe the term you are searching for is urban fantasy. By your definition both lotr and Conan are low fantasy as well since they were both stated by their respective authors to take place on a prehistory earth before all magic, wonder and other such crap had left the world.

Your low fantasy examples are true but high fantasy isn't set around anything realistic with one or two "mythical" creatures that don't really break the magical boundaries because it uses no magic

Conan had a cult leader with slight telepathic abilities and a giant snake, that isn't high fantasy it's low fantasy

Skyrim has you going to "heaven" and fighting against gods. It's not fucking low fantasy, you retard.

High and Low fantasy has nothing to do with magic.

It's all about the world it's set in. Wether that world has no magic, low magic or high magic doesn't matter in the definition of high/low fantasy.

I must have missed the history lessons where it said that Elves, Hobbits, Dragons and all that shit where reigning the earth before the Mudslims decided to kill off Jesus.

Low Fantasy doesn't completely change the history of the real world.

Also I would like a some source on that, because that's literally the first time I ever heard about that.

I haven't played anything in Elder Scrolls before Morrowind back in 2009.

I want to get back into this series but don't know where to start. There's the base games, the dlc, but I hear that the games are riddled with bugs and I have to download fan-patches.


anyone wanna help a new guy out?
