Please do not discuss Skyrim here.

This thread is dedicated to all the Elder Scrolls games (excluding Skyrim and mobile games) that have ever been released. I saw that Skyrim has it's own thread so I decided what better than to make one dedicated to I-IV! (With inspiration from GravCat Posted Image)

Nope, that's Daggerfall, which according to Bethesda is actually two times the size of Great Britan :D

Ah, okay.

The only ES games I've played are Morrowind, Oblivion, and Skyrim. I tried downloading Daggerfall when it went free, but you need an older OS to play it. Plus, I couldn't figure out the thing that allows you to play it on Windows 7.

If I recall correctly, I could get you a link to a download that would allow you to install Daggerfall without having to go through all that DOS nonsense, I'll try to get a link.

EDIT: Here it is, this is where I downloaded Daggerfall without having to launch DOSbox everything

Daggerfall is the size of the U.k. It's also not very fun.

The first one I played was Oblivion, then I got Daggerfall from Bethesda's website, bought Skyrim when it came out, and recently started playing Morrowind.

I think I'll see if I can get Arena to work with DOSBox, you've piqued my curiosity.
that boxart is terrible though

to each their own i guess. I love Daggerfall it is my favorite out of the series because its a RPG its not based on action and kill cams with a joke of a story and no depth at all. Needing to actually look for things vs a magic compass is also a bonus.

The boxart was one of the reasons stores were cautious to put the game on their shelves, because it seems too racy.

Maybe this thread should be about Arena, Daggerfall, Morrowind, and Oblivion, considering that a very small population of the MC forums have probably played it.

Just a suggestion.

I remember tinkering with the games before, but when I built my current PC and I never thought to downloaded them again. This thread reminded me to give them another play-through, so thanks, Gheart.

Cheers Nerevar, I wish you luck. I am currently starting the Labyrinthian and it's a little daunting.

And also, GravCat, I will probably do that, thanks for the idea.

EDIT: Just got the Daggerfall section done, Morrowind section done, Oblivion is now done, and I can rest. :P

Didn't this thread use to be on how to get Arena and Daggerfall free?

Anyway, Morrowind was when it got decent for me.

Now that's one FPS boost!

Gheart, you're an ES god. Waaay better than Talos.

Anyway, the first ES game that I played was Oblivion. The night I got it, I pulled an all-nighter. I played about 300 hours of it, and loved every moment of it.

I also prefer the Oblivion soundtrack over Skyrim's soundtrack.

Also, I have a funny story. On my 5th or so character in Oblivion, I made an Argonian and I named him "Frog." I realized that Frogs were amphibians when I was level 25, and level 25 was harder to get to than in Skyrim, so it was about 75 hours in. I am currently doing a playthrough as an Argonian named Frog in Skyrim.

My first character, however, was a Khajiit named "Harold." My cat's name is Harold.
