Oh my god. Skyrim was good in 2011. Now it's even better. I thought I may regret this purchase. I do not. at all.

Except for some lighting (time of day) changes it doesn't look all that different to me.

I'm too used to seeing the game loaded with 5 texture packs and 3 ENBs. But yeah, the game looks good.

The benefit of Special Editionis that you don't need mods. Out of the box, it already looks like those trxture packs and EMBs we have been using. I very much enjoy this.

To see just how much has changed, load up vanilla Skyrim. Go to the top of a mountain. Then enter the commands TFC1 (free cam, and pauses the game), and then TM (disables the HUD).

Load up vanilla Special Edition, go to exactly the same location, and do exactly the same thing. Looking at side-by-side shots of exactly the same thing, you can see quite an impressive difference.

A lot of that is just the general PC graphical improvements over the older console releases, but yeah, it looks nice.

Your definition and my definition of "Breathtaking" are rather different.

Then again you are a Mac gamer so any game at all must be breathtaking to  you.
