Skyrim v/s opensim

While blipping around youtube and the web I came across again the skyrim horses, and a video on horse mods

Watching the video was interesting, they didn't show how to do the mods but show how the results. The interesting thing is watching the movement and environment, it looks a lot like a super high quality opensim in everything from shadows and textures, camera and sounds.

Naturally the thought comes to mind of why don't we have this in opensim and have it work fast etc as it shows in the youtube videos!
I don't know anything about it but I assume it's a PC game, if so then it's running everything on the PC using whatever sofware and assets it uses to do so, that seems similar to running opensim locally with a mySQL database and the OARS and IARS.

Im guessing you cant modify thing in-game like we do in-world in opensim with build tools, so maybe you can't change the plants, landscape, buildings etc on the fly like we do.
