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.
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.
