My favorite would have to be Oblivion. It's the game that started it all for me. I've always like the colorfulness of the game, the beautiful soundtrack, and of course, the Shivering Isles. Who doesn't love the Shivering Isles?

I would have to say Morrowind. Something about it makes me feel like I'm back home. Besides I'll always remember that wizard who fell out of the sky and nearly scared me to death!

I'd have to say daggerfall. Even though I had almost NO idea what I was doing, it was the first ES game I played.

So it's tied between morrowind and daggerfall for me. But, daggerfall gets my nostalgic vote.

Yeah. That's how it is with Oblivion and I. It has my vote mostly for nostalgia. Although I had some idea what I was doing.

Daggerfall. Even sixteen years later I'm still more likely to go back to that than any of the other games, with the possible exception of Skyrim that I haven't quite explored everything in yet.

(Also: Where's Redguard and Battlespire? :P )

I'm really not sure, I liked them all. But since Oblivion was the first one I played, it gets my vote

Morrowind for me. Fast travel kinda broke immersion for me in Oblivion. At least Skyrim gave you the option to take a carriage.

But I loved the Dunmer culture. I really liked reading the in-game texts, and I really felt involved in the storyline even though it didn't have voice acting to speak of -- besides Dagoth Ur at the very end when you first walk into his crib (and even that was like two lines, "Come, Nerevar, soul of the incarnate, etc....".

You know, I actually felt concern and worry when I was in dungeons in Morrowind. There was a risk of death that really made me think before trying fights (even if I KNEW what was coming). In Skyrim, I kinda feel that being able to Fus'ro'dah high level opponents kinda kills that feeling -- as you can just walk into a hard dungeon relatively early on, reach the really hard hitting mage boss, and hit him with a FRD when he isn't casting ward and its game over for him.

That's why I never really used FRD, unless I wanted to knock tons of stuff off a table or something. Plus, most of the dungeons just felt like I was fighting draugr over and over again, maybe a boss here and there, and then I was done. Rinse and repeat for every other quest.

While I greatly enjoyed Morrowind, I spent alot more time playing Oblivion so I'd have to say Oblivion is my favorite.

I think I'd like to put it up in a line, to be fair.

Morrowind > Daggerfall > Oblivion > Skyrim > Arena

Whilst I started with Daggerfall, Morrowind's more fleshed out "groundlore" is just better. I felt Oblivion was superior to Skyrim because it felt less like an action game and more like an RPG where you have to put points in Intelligence and so on. That's just my personal opinion.

Arena? Blllegh.

Morrowind, definitely. Absolutely everything was right in that game (except perhaps for some early bugginess). It was awesome stories, fun events, hidden mysteries, it still had a LOT of skills you could choose (bring back Sanctuary!) and you had much more customization in terms of character building. I quite dislike the health / magicka / stamina thing in skyrim.

I really despise some of the decisions that Bethesda (or maybe it was the investors?) made post TES III

I liked the complexity in Morrowind. The interface made sense. Spellmaking was neat. There was no level scaling of mosters, which made exploration a lot more interesting. The only thing missing in Morrowind was something akin to perks in Skyrim.

Oblivion was generally just utter trash. The graphic assets (apart from character models) were a huge improvement.. But quick travel, the removal of mark/recall and levitate, and a lot of simplification ruined the experience for me. The game was also rather shallow. The world never aknowledged what you did. Same with Skyrim... And don't get me started on Oblivion gates!

While Skyrim was definately more enjoyable than Oblivion, it lacked depth and atmosphere. The story sucked and the interface was awful as well.. Not as bad as Oblivion, though.


In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.

Kinda agree.

They began (and will continue) "appealing to the masses." I stopped playing Skyrim after 250 hours. IDK, it just didn't have that "craziness" that I loved so much in Morrowind and Oblivion.

I'll still play anything ES though(Skyrim DLC for example)... for the lore.


EDIT: Ok, my post sounds way to 'hipster' lol. The reason I dislike them "appealing to the masses" is because it means we get a easy-peasy hold-your-hand game.
