About

“Like Skyrim With Guns” is a memorable quote by Adam Kovic of the Machinima YouTube channel comparing the open world first-person shooter game Far Cry 3 with the action role-playing game The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim which was widely mocked by the online gaming community.

Origin

At the Gamescom conference in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany held in August 2012, Machinima host Adam Kovic interviewed Far Cry 3 producer Dan Hay, saying the game was “like Skyrim with guns.”



Adam Kovic: I didn’t realize what you guys were demoing and it’s open world… and I’ve already told you this, but it feels like Skyrim with guns.
