Skyrim’s Amazing Fans: Cosplay, Mods, Comics & Screens
A game series that inspires the kind of devotion enjoyed by the Elder Scrolls series is rare indeed. In less than a year and a half, Skyrim has sold 10 million copies and has become a pop culture sensation, spawning memes that have popped up in the weirdest places — including (we are not kidding) an episode of your grandparent’s favorite television show, “NCIS.”
No wonder then, that with the final DLC pack Dragonborn behind it, Bethesda is bringing the Skyrim era to a big finish with the recently announced Legendary Edition (which will include the main game, and all DLCs), due June 4.
So, we thought a retrospective was in order. We’ve pored over illustrations, photographic-quality screenshots, and Skyrim-inspired music. We’ve dug deep into comics created by Skyrim fans, and into the incredible mods made possible by The Elder Scrolls Creation Kit. We’ve even taken a last look at the enormous cosplay community Skyrim has spawned. Whatever kind of nerd you are, there’s something here for you. Read on, then, for a final taste of how awesome the Skyrim fan community is.
We’ll kick this off with Malukah’s performance of the Skyrim theme song.
