I think we all rather easily recall how insanely cool it was to uncover that Skyrim would be a game brimming with dragons. The story and setting saw Bethesda's title hyped to immense proportions, and somehow it managed to meet every expectation. Dragons are of course one of the greatest additions we can fathom in fantasy games, but could they be replaced by a new enemy in Elder Scrolls 6?

What on earth could take the place of a Skyrim dragon? Should Elder Scrolls 6 still maintain their presence? Should they still be an enemy along with all of the other threats in this new location, or should they all return to their home of Akavir? It's a tough one to call really.

Elder Scrolls 6 - Are Dragons Gone?

There are plenty of locations left within Tamriel after Skyrim that Bethesda could take Elder Scrolls VI. We still have the likes of Elsweyr, Valenwood, Argonia and a few more, though personally I think this would be the ultimate setting for The Elder Scrolls VI! But could Bethesda actually be brave enough to omit all signs of dragons in the next adventure? Could a different enemy that exists within this world surpass that of a dragon?

Personally, I'm not so sure that it would be possible. Once you bring dragons into a series, it'll be damn difficult to start removing them and still raising the quality of the titles. Fighting dragons with that unbelievable music in Skrim is one of the greatest highlights in modern gaming. The dragons are not going to be leaving the Elder Scrolls series for some time now that they've arrived.

Antagonist in Elder Scrolls VI

If dragons become an integral part of the Elder Scrolls games from here on, it'll still be difficult for Bethesda to conjure up a villain to rival that of the great dragon Alduin. Perhaps there could be two enemies threatening us in Elder Scrolls 6. Perhaps the dragons could launch a violent attack on the inhabitants of Akavir and while dealing with a threat in Tamriel, we're tasked with making one of the few voyages to Akavir to aid its desperate population.

But seriously, even if Bethesda conjure up fire breathing unicorns that summon the power of the elements and natural disasters during battles for Elder Scrolls 6, it'll be tough to top those dragons. Could you think of anything that could rival a Skyrim's enemies in these lands? Perhaps they could create a new magical beast of their own for VI!

Let us know in the comments if you still want dragons to be an integral part of Elder Scrolls VI and if you can conjure up a beast that could surpass their awesome might!
