There are a lot of different kinds of side quests in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, but some are much more memorable than even the game’s main story.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is one of the most jam-packed releases in Bethesda’s catalogue, boasting dozens of additional side-quests to compliment the base game’s main storyline. Some players have spent years with the game only to discover new and unique side-quests that they’d never encountered before, just by exploring the world.
However, as many Elder Scrolls fans will no doubt attest, Skyrim’s side-quests are no meagre distractions. They often actually outdo the game’s core story, largely because they facilitate a more immersive and unique role-playing experience suited to each individual player’s interests. In other words, it’s just way more interesting to role-play as a Khajiit bard-turned-Dark Brotherhood assassin than it is to simply fulfil the prophecy of the Dragonborn in a more linear story.
