I don’t know about all you gamer girls, but I have a love/hate relationship with Elder Scrolls. The first Elder Scrolls game I played was Oblivion because I didn’t really start gaming seriously until I was about 19. Oblivion was already over two years old at that point and had made quite a stir. After Oblivion, I backtracked to Morrowind (not the ESO DLC, we will get to that in a second) which was the third game in the Elder Scrolls series…or the fifth, depending on how you feel about Battlespire and Redguard…but it’s called Elder Scrolls 3 so we are just going to press on calling it that for the sake of this conversation. Anyways. After Oblivion I was pretty hooked on the whole franchise and made it my mission to play each game at least once. Skyrim was released about two and a half years after I found Oblivion and quickly became one of my go-to games. I still play it regularly. “Regularly” is a word which here means “I log at least 5 hours a week on a game that I’ve been playing consistently since 2011”. I also play Elder Scrolls Online pretty frequently and have just recently gotten my hands on the Morrowind DLC.
Okay. So that’s my backstory regarding Elder Scrolls. Fairly standard. Sounds like I love the franchise, right? Right. I do. But I said love/hate and I totally meant it. For starters, I think that ESO was a total bust when it was first released. I bought it and actually stopped playing for a while pretty soon after. It had bugs, it lagged like crazy, and I just didn’t like the experience. I am happy to report that since the new updates I enjoy it MUCH more and do spend quite a lot of time playing. Another thing that I kind of loathe but also love about Elder Scrolls and Skyrim specifically is that…you’re never really done…ever. Each time you think you’ve beat the game and figured out all the secrets they drop a new DLC or you discover an article somewhere on the web and BOOM! there is something new to find. It’s awesome because you never really get bored, but also kind of infuriating because you never get the sense of accomplishment that comes with *truly* beating a game.
You think you’ve completed Skyrim, but have you found these 5 hidden bosses?, published on GamesRadar.com, is one of the aforementioned articles. It drops some knowledge on you and gives you new things to explore. The author lists five hidden bosses in Skyrim. One requires you to be a certain level, and two require a DLC. I had heard of three on the list before and found two of those three. I have other friends who have heard of some or even none prior to this article so I have no doubt that this will give you something fun to battle next time you play. If you have already found and defeated all the bosses listed in this article, then you are kind of a badass and I tip my hat to you.
