I really love ebony armor and the look of it in all of the games but I want to know which you all think looks the best and why... I've taken the liberty of adding picture to help you decide!

Morrowind:

Oblivion:

Skyrim:

Personally, as nice as the ebony is in skyrim, I love the gold trim in Morrowind and Oblivion. As a female character the ebony doesn't look nearly as nice in Skyrim either... Just My opinion (:

My favourite ebony armour is probably the Skyrim set, as this made me feel like the Dark Knight running into battle!

Skyrim was my personal favourite, although I'd say that Oblivion put more effort into it.

I think both should be options in some manner. The ebony from morrowind and oblivion looks much more fitting for those areas and looks much more like dress armor or that of someone in high status especially with the trim and the ornate markings. The one in skyrim looks like its from an orc blacksmith or someone who wants something intimidating that looks sturdy and indestructible. So personally I would love if they included both options depending on where you got it. That being said I would probably choose the one from Oblivion or Morrowind it just has a nice look to it.

I'm going to say the Skyrim one for the above reasons.

That would be interesting if armor from different provinces had different styles to it!

Yea armor variation definitely needs some work in the series though I gotta say ESO will hopefully do a better job just well out of necessity to make us all feel a bit unique. So hey maybe everyone will get the ebony they love.

The general ebony armor look from Oblivion definitely has a special place in my heart. The helmet specifically is much better looking in Skyrim though.

Morrowind. Was such an awesome feeling when you discovered it, sort of added to the beauty. Later games you just killed bandits on the highway and it dropped if you had leveled far enough.

Ebony was always my favorite armor, until seeing skyrims vanilla version...my favorite is oblivions but i liked the rarity of morrowinds. I thought the un-moded version of skyrims ebony looks like a power ranger

For this reason, Morrowind Ebony is my pick. Felt like something worthwhile, Oblivion and Skyrim made it too easy to get better gear.
