Why hello proper Elder Scrolls Megathread!!
I'm a big fan. Big big big.
I started with Oblivion (I wanted to try Morrowind before Oblivion had come out, but I was too young to procure the game on my own), then worked back to Morrowind, I dabbled in Daggerfall, and I have of course also played Skyrim. Oh, and I dabbled in Arena at the same time as dabbling in Daggerfall, but I couldn't play both at once, so I played Daggerfall.
I don't think I can truly say that I completed any of those games, but I can say that I think I'm finished with Oblivion.
Morrowind and Skyrim are my favorite pair of games. I think I like Daggerfall more than Oblivion, but I haven't played it enough to be sure. I have no opinion of Arena yet.
Also, I've been a UESP contributor for over three years.

I'm a new elderscroll fan and got Skyrim on the release, Skyrim was pretty amazing. Then i got oblivion, I loved it. But when i got Morrowind...Well...I didn't like it. Well it might because of the fact that I can't get out of the first town. Since the combat in this game is clunky. I tried to be an archer, Half of the arrows went through the targets. Tried to be a warrior, the blade went through the enemy like last time. And last a tried to be a mage, i could get in a few hits but the damage was ridiculously low. So what am i doing wrong? Or am i supposed to do something else, like getting potions and stuff(the shop doesn't sell any)?
In Morrowind, when you level up in a certain skill, it makes you more accurate with those weapons, as opposed to the newer games where as long as the crosshairs are on target, you will hit.
I actually really liked that the player, being an untrained civilian, can't just rush into battle with a bunch of bandits and win in their very first exposure to combat. You'll find that being able to pay for training an unlimited number of times (there's no cap: if you have the gold, they'll train you) is a good balancer.
I usually pick out a home and live as a city-dweller (with occasional non-combat excursions for the gold) until I'm proficient enough for real adventuring.
