This week it's Bethesda's turn. More specifically, it's about their highly popular WRPG IP The Elder Scrolls.


Bonus question: What are your hopes and expectations for the eventual The Elder Scrolls VI?

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Oblivion by a mile

I think I enjoyed Morrowind, more than Skyrim tbh.
Im not sure what happend but I felt like I got sidetracked a bazillion times in skyrim, and the overuse of cheating and save/reload.
However I remember seeing my younger brother back in the day, play Daggerfall and that was what got me into playing the series.
Daggerfall was crazy impressive for its time, and the system and character abilities it allowed for.

I know Skyrim is the most popular by far, but in many ways it feels like a dumbed down version of elder scrolls.
Morrowwind back in the day, was something you could just lose yourself in, the sense of exploration was better than skyrims.

Morrowind or Oblivion (either or both) > skyrim.

Still most impressive (if you factor in time it was made) is def. daggerfall.

I hope its more like morrowind/oblivion than skyrim.

Morrowind, loved that game. The setting and world are by far my favourite in any TES. Skyrim comes second, great game despite being watered down experience. Though the modding scene for it was something else!

As for TES6, hoping for something in Between Morrowind and Skyrim, in terms of setting, players impact and spells/abilities. Though expectations are for a Skyrim 2.0

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

Skyrim, by a mile.

Playing Morrowind - and to a lesser extent Oblivion - felt like a drag, everything just takes too much time, and I dont have it anymore. You cant just play it casually. Dialogue is eternal, gets to the point you just want to skim it, but you cant because then you miss what you needed to know.
Skyrim is WAY more efficient.

Bonus: I hope its more like Skyrim than morrowind/oblivion.

Probably Oblivion but I did enjoy Skyrim. I want to play Morrowind though.

Only played Skyrim, so that one.

I hope TES VI is more polished at launch.
