I made a topic a little who ago about Bethesda's next title(s).
I'm pretty sure Todd Howard said they were using a new engine. I'll dig it up.
We did a lot between Oblivion and Fallout 3 because now we had final hardware - with Oblivion we had six months on final hardware, so Fallout 3 technically does a lot more than Oblivion. The new stuff is an even bigger jump from that.
You almost feel like you have a new console when you see the game.

Totally didn't expect this, containing a huge sqee right now...
I think I just went sterile...
EDIT: I just realized, Frost spells are gonna suck in this one D:
I truly hope they ditched Gamebryo... but I guess not...
EDIT2: ARGH RAGE! Video won't load D:
EDIT3: Waitwhat... dragons? I hope this means Gamebryo is not involved... I mean, the engine sure didn't perform well on big creatures... it looks so awesome tho... Anyone wants to get frozen in a mountain's ice with me until the release?

I literally squealed and started flailing around when I saw Elder Scrolls and V in the same title with a real date under it. Words can't describe how much I've been looking forward to this date, more than any other game TES:V was what I've been looking forward to hearing about.
I'm an utter TES fanatic, Morrowind was the game that truly got me into gaming and TES IV severely disappointed me in that same light. It's the first fantasy series to truly feel like it's own world purely painted in shades of gray mystique (though Oblivion took that and shat all over it with it's absolute comparison of Daedra to evil demons). Skyrim has always fascinated me as it's essentially the Mesopotamia of Tamriel, since more or less all human life spawned and spread out from there as the Nedics arrived from the North.
I expect truly ancient ruins and I hope to every deity imaginable that the dungeons feel unique and not just reordered tile-sets.
f*ck, I'm excited!
EDIT: Still giddy as all holy f*ck, f*cking sh*t, I'm sh*tting myself in excitement.
