Goat Simulator 3 Parodies Skyrim’s Opening

The newly released Goat Simulator 3 comes with a number of references to other gaming franchises, including the famous opening to Skyrim.


Goat Simulator 3 is now out, with its goofy gameplay antics no doubt being the major draw for players, along with the game’s references to other titles, including The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim‘s opening cart scene. What started out as a joke, with the original goat entry being developed during a Game Jam session, where people attempt to create a game from scratch in a short span of time, soon exploded into a phenomenon. As a result, 2014’s Goat Simulator went down as one of the silliest & most memorable simulators in all of gaming.

GAMERANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

Of course, with the sequel, which is being referred to as Goat Simulator 3, fans have been expecting parodies aplenty, & developer Coffee Stain Studios delivered before the game even released. The Gamescom 2022 trailer was a parody of Dead Isl& 2, which showed a jogger running along a pier as a bunch of goats wreak havoc in the background, headbutting pedestrians with nary a care in the world. Now that the game is out, fans will no doubt be looking out for even more references.

They won’t have to look far, either, as a video from IGN shows 16 minutes of gameplay from Goat Simulator 3, & the video opens with the player waking up in the back of a cart being driven by a farmer. Said farmer then says, “You’re finally awake,” before continuing to give a speech about what lies ahead. This is an obvious reference to Skyrim‘s well-known opening cutscene, in which the player wakes up in a cart with some other prisoners & is being driven to Helgen for execution. In this parody, however, there is no execution for the goat protagonist, & the farmer, who even refers to the vehicle as the “Skyrim cart,” releases the animal to w&er the l&.

The opening cutscene of Skyrim is one of the most famous in gaming. So many players have seen this lengthy intro time & time again, to such an extent that modders have made it possible to Open the game without having to experience this part. While it is a dated reference, with The Elder Scrolls 5 coming out 11 years ago, it’s an obvious nod to one of the most famous RPGs in recent history.

Coffee Stains Studios’ sequel even contains a reference to PT, which some may feel is dated but still somehow quite relevant. As many will be finding out, there’s a lot of silly gameplay in Goat Simulator 3, & while the reviews coming back so far are not Unbelievable, there will be some diehard fans who get a thrill out of kicking byst&ers once more.

Goat Simulator 3 is out now for PC, PS5, & Xbox Series X/S.
