Across the whole history of gaming can anyone think of a game that's been more supported than Skyrim?
The latest announcement of the Anniversary Edition and next gen upgrade in Nov of this year mark the next upgrade in a long line of official support from Bethesda. And then there is the unofficial support from the modding community, which began 10 years ago when the game released and continues strong to this day.
Skyrim's post-launch support now includes:
Legendary Edition/Special Edition/Anniversary Edition
Creation Club (official mods)
Modding community 60,000+ (unofficial mods)
All this added to a game that at launch already included 100+ hours of content.
I know the latest announcement of the Anniversary Edition has drawn gasps of incredulity, because we simply aren't used to this. But for me there is something deeply admirable here. Can any other game claim to have been shown such longterm support from both the devs and the community?
