The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Cheats
Everyone will have heard of Skyrim at some point in their lives. This is especially true for gamers but can also be applied to non-gamers too seeing as how the game has ascended to meme status in recent years. This just means that the gaming community has mocked some of the more ludicrous aspects of the game and even turned serious lines of dialogue into jokes. Despite this, it is hard to disagree with the fact that Skyrim revolutionised the RPG genre forever in the sense that it brought it to the mainstream in 2011. This allowed many more examples to follow in its footsteps, such as The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in 2015.
Skyrim is a game that is intensely enjoyable to just replay, even after multiple playthroughs. Some people might therefore want to know what cheats they can do to get a head start after already playing through the game. Others might just want to know some ways where they can add fun to the game. Console users will be annoyed to learn that they are at somewhat of a disadvantage when compared to PC users. This is because PC users are given access to the console command, which can be utilised in the game to serve a variety of functions. Players can input commands to give themselves items, complete quests and more.
Another way in which console players are at a disadvantage is when it comes to mods. Most of the cheats that players will inevitably desire are likely already available as mods, as the modding community is always huge when it comes to Bethesda games, especially with releases of the Elder Scrolls. This means that whatever cheats one would like to use in the game can be done simply by visiting a modding website and downloading the right mod. This benefits PC players, but it does not help console players as only a select number of mods are available on the platform.
Many consoles players will rightfully feel alienated about the mod situation. This is because there are many console players in the world; most houses will likely have one. Having one of these would have proved helpful during the recent lockdowns, where people turned to entertainment accessible from home to pass the time. This would have included playing at casinos like this one here, or indeed, playing video games. Those who own a console will be delighted to learn that there are some cheats they can do in-game. For example, players can power level skills unnaturally by finding a trainer and pickpocketing them once they have reached the max number of level-ups. All players will have to do is quick save beforehand and keep on loading the game until they are successful in pickpocketing.
Skyrim represents a growing trend in the video game industry the death of cheat codes. We are now a far cry away from games like Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas as now, game companies opt to just in a console command instead of traditional cheat codes. Still, those who want to cheat in Skyrim should now feel confident of the different avenues to go about it.
