As many of us have heard of this game series, I can't really find it fair to create a topic on just one or two of the games, when there are at least 5 games on consol and pc, and a new Online title to add to the mix.

So, what games have you played under these titles?

I personally have played Skyrim to literal death. Two profiles, first over level 50, the other over lever 70.....and I want a third. Started playing Oblivion and getting my butt kicked by the Daedra >_<

You might like them Julius. The the later ones, you have the freedom of choice. Like what skills you wish to increase, What quests you want to go on or temporarily pause on and so forth. Even the choice of (selected) race and how they look is up to you

Morrowwind is what I believe the game in the series that offers most freedom. There's no waypoints, you actually have to listen to people and get directions. You either pay to go to towns, or you get to walk. Plus, you can literally kill anyone and they stay dead. No "important character" immunity. If you kill a main story-central character, the game outright tells you "You fucked up the game. You can't finish the main quest now. Reload a save, or this game is unwinnable"

Also, the environments are what I think are the most stunning. Very weird and unique. Skyrim's visuals are a close second. I do love the snow and Norse visuals.

Plus, what's really cool that Oblivion and Skyrim do not have is the ability to have the "levitation" enhancement, which literally makes you fly. Also, you can create your own custom spells, such as a 200 ft. fireball that does 6000 damage. Obviously you won't have the Magika to cover it, but through the use of cheats, you can literally take out entire towns. It's pretty fun.

The only complaint of Morrowwind that I have is the combat. It's... very plain. All you do is go up and mash the attack button hoping you hit something.

I have personally just entered the series a year ago with a chance buy at Skyrim. Found it at a pawn shop for $14 bucks so I figured why not. The awesome part was it had the Map, the instruction manual, and apparently the advertisement. Game worked perfectly......a year later....it had been the only game I had been playing. Now I am on Oblivion.

Oblivion is... okay, but the visuals are a bit bland. Made especially so that it's considered a "benchmark game," much like Crysis was.

I started playing The Elder Scrolls with Daggerfall on my cousin's old DOS computer back in 2002. It was one of the best games I'd ever played, and to this day, still my favorite Elder Scrolls game. Ever since then, I'd played all of the Elder Scrolls games to date, from Arena to Skyrim, and even Elder Scrolls Online(*Shudder*). I'm a PC gamer, though. Am I posting in the wrong section for Elder Scrolls?

I tried playing Morrowind when I was young, but I tried stealing from an old woman and she caught me and I couldn't hit her with my dagger so I tried to leave but couldn't get the door open and she killed me...so I stopped.

Then I played Skyrim a while after it came out! Was totally fun, totally awesome. Played three characters (thief-archer, thief-mage, thief-dagger-assassin), only beat it with the second one, and I like 'em. This last year I played Oblivion (for my channel, too! Though the quality started out pretty awful), and though it was long, it was a lot of fun, too.

Personally, I've played three. In order of which I played first to last, they are:

1.) Morrowind. I agree with Red - combat in morrowind is plain. But Morrowind is the Elder Scrolls game I have the most mods for. Navigation was... difficult in the beginning, but after I learned where everything was, I was able to get from quest point A to quest point B with no problems. Modding Morrowind was much simpler than modding the other two I've played, as a certain part of the game code (Crossbows) allowed me to add bolt-action rifles to the game (I added a Mauser Kar98K and it's scoped variant), and the animations were somewhat accurate for the rifles. I even added sound for both firing and operating the bolt!

2.) Oblivion. Better graphics than Morrowind, everything seemed bigger, and the katana models looked better than the ones in Morrowind (I love katanas, yes). More difficult to mod than Morrowind, but what really sucked was it had NO DUAL WIELDING. I've always been a fan of dual wielding. Oblivion had a more interesting storyline than Morrowind (IMO), not to mention longer. One of my favorite mods for Oblivion was the Predator mod (Predator as in the AVP Predator. Complete with auto-returning shuriken, wrist blades, cool-looking swords, and a WORKING PLASMA CASTER). Kick. Ass.

3.) Skyrim. Best. Elder Scrolls. Ever. PERIOD. My absolute favorite Elder Scrolls game of them all, despite it's bugs and problems. Not only did it let you Dual Wield (but NO BLOCKING with Dual Blades made no sense to me), but it had a storyline involving DRAGONS. Hell. YES! Skyrim has a lot of mods out for it (more so than Morrowind, I think), one of them being a mod that lets you craft Diamond weapons (That do a lot of damage when your one-handed and Blacksmithing skills are high). Or, if you're a Star Wars nerd like moi, then there's a mod for LIGHTSABERS. Getting the materials for both weapon mods is a pain in the ass (I use cheats, since I'm not very patient in finding such materials), but once you make them (and improve them, god forbid), they're AWESOME!!! My favorite mod for Skyrim was the Civil War Overhaul mod, which made the linear style of Skyrim's Civil War A LOT more realistic (as in, you can actually lose battles if you're too slow or not careful - something that was FUNCTIONALLY IMPOSSIBLE with vanilla Skyrim). But, I digress.

Skyrim Storyline was AWESOME. Escape from execution, dragonslaying (which, anyone who knows me will know I don't typically like killing dragons), infiltration, intelligence-gathering... the list of things you can do goes on [almost forever]. I personally like the fact you can befriend one of the dragons (hey - how often can a person do that?). I've been thinking of doing a youtube series on my adventures in Skyrim, but I don't think anyone would watch it (I'm not too good at playing a comedian).

All in all, I have to say, the Elder Scrolls series is an awesome franchise. Hell, I even have a story written in that 'verse.

Amen to that, brother. *high fives*

Oh, and Ris, are you referring to that old woman in the lighthouse in the town you start in?
