Skyrim Features That Didnt Make It Through The Final Release

Before releasing Skyrim, the team was allowed one week to add ANYTHING that they want with Skyrim. However, these additions didnt make it through the final release. HOWEVER, THESE ADDITIONS ARE AMONG THE BEST IDEAS I HAVE EVER SEEN FOR SKYRIM!!! Take a look!

 

VID with the sounds: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uFXJu9S7zNc

VID used by webzines: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AYOFLqItuW4

SAME VID, without sound: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cEKi2TPanGY

 

This is the FULL VERSION of the PRESENTATION:

^The GAME JAM is about 20mins into the video. The frames are better (the youtube vid was edited to avoid copyright issues) plus there is the remix which suits the video well.

 

 

EDIT:

 

After reading the comments there have been so many people speculating that the reason these features didn't make it through the game was because they cannot be implemented to the console versions of the game.

 

Anyhow, Todd mentioned that some of these MIGHT be implemented on their DLCs.

    I really wanted the dark dungeons feature, requiring you to have some sort of light source available.

    It would really add to the atmosphere and feeling of dwelling into a dark, long forgotten place.

     

    I hope there will be a mod for this.

    sounds like your standard pc fanboy whining, anything negative must be because of consoles, yup they didnt add spears because consoles couldnt handle it /sarcasm.

    PC fanboys need to learn to, you know, blame the people that make the game instead of a hunk of plastic.

    Apparently stating the truth in my sig is "trolling"
    Sig typo fixed thanks to an observant stragen001.

    True, I don't see how any of these features could not make it on consoles.

    Sounds like some kind of joke, because the statement just lacks logic.

    Why wouldn't features like building your own home, adopting children etc, not be possible on consoles?

     

    I think the real reason is simply that they did not have time to implement all these additional features.

    And some of them were not that important to begin with.

    Also, many of these I am sure will be available as mods for the PC version.

    This. 

     

    I'm still looking for other theories from the net.

    Listen to the video people... These features didn't make it into Skyrim because none of them existed before the game was finalized for production. The team was given one week to do these things after the game was already finished and sent to the publishing department at Bethesda. After the game is finalized no additions are made as it's already being prepared for shipment to retailers.
