Is it the lore or the games, and why.

The lore is great but it's the games that got me interested in the series.

The open world attracted me to The Elder Scrolls series, as well as being able to mod my Skyrim game so that I have my own version of a monumental game. Those are some pretty big footsteps for ESO to fill. Looks good so far and I will definitely give it a try.

Skyrim did it for me. Once they announced there was an MMO coming I knew I had to try it to see if it could be as good as Skyrim was.

I originally got into TES for the games because I'm a game nerd, but after I learned more about the lore I had to learn more. It's just really interesting to me

I started playing Morrowind when my brother rented it on xbox from the local video store. I remember being really, really terrible at it, but I loved reading the books. Even though I barely understood them. Eventually Oblivion came out and I got hooked again. Since then I've put in around 400 hours into a single character in Skyrim and plan to put even more into TESO.

For me it was the Morrowind game editor making your own stuff and putting it in game to use is cool.

Only played skyrim, the lore is pretty cool, but ultimately it was the gameplay that got me hooked. This will be my first mmo though. Cant freakin wait

I must say one day I was at Hastings and saw it there on the Xbox game rental shelves so I decided to whip out my trusty Iphone lol. and looked it up decided to give it a try, the open world and first person style caught my attention, the lore was a step above most other fantasy games. then after i decided to go and buy it. I was thinking and did some research and found out that i played Daggerfall years ago and loved it.

I first started with Morrowind, but I was a little too young to fully appreciate it for what it was due to lack of patience with the journal and such, but still found it to be entertaining. Then Oblivion came out and I was insanely hooked. I put well over 1500 hours into Oblivion total (over 1000 into a single character and ~200 into a few others). The lore, the races, the openness, and the combat style all came together for me and made me an Elder Scrolls fan. Of course Skyrim came after and then here comes TESO.

It was the games for me. I'm still not entirely sure I understand the lore :)
I picked up Oblivion a few years ago and thought it was the best game I'd ever played.... until I picked up Skyrim.

The game for me. Had not played a decent RPG for quite some time then Skyrim came out. Was truly a brilliant game which I am still playing in preperation for Elder Scrolls Online
