I’ve played Daggerfall, Morrowind, Oblivion and now Skyrim, and I’m convinced that there can’t be another entry in The Elder Scrolls series after Skyrim. My scientifically correct theory is based entirely off of the theme music. Music in games, as in movies is designed to set the tone (!) and to act as the emotional bedrock to any scene. Therefor, my theory – which is a result of minutes of in-depth research and is supported by a scientific community of myself — is as follows:
Nerevar Rising: Theme from Morrowind
Sweeping and epic.
Reign of the Septims: Theme from Oblivion
Same theme as Nerevar, but more heroic and urgent.
Skyrim Main Theme: Theme from Skyrim
Epic, heroic and brutal. If this doesn’t make the hairs stand up on the back of your neck, you’re a zombie. Please kill yourself and save us the airfare of us having to do it for you.
By my projections, the theme from another TES game would have to be so ungawdly beyond epic that the following would occur upon hearing it:
1. Your brain would burst through your skull.
2. It would punch the nearest 20 people in the face with sheer barbarian brutality.
3. Gathering with all of the other newly emerged brains, they would form an army that would march across the planet in a scene that would make anything from Braveheart look like a kindergarten playground, setting fire to everything they encounter.
4. The Earth would explode.
5. The Earth would then implode.
6. Just to prove how awesome it is, the theme would resurrect the Earth, which it would then re-explode.
7. The universe would explode.
To put it into perspective, I give you this hastily constructed projection graph:
In conclusion, any furthering of the franchise would put the universe at risk during the opening credits, which, if my theory is correct, would mean that either A) any game following said theme would have to be suitably more epic then the theme itself, or B) we’d never know, because the universe would be dead before the opening credits.
I will now open the floor to questions.
