What was your first Elder Scrolls experience like?
What was your first magical moment in in the Elder Scrolls games? What game did you guys start with? I started with Ovlivion, in Kavach off my sister's save without her knowing, I was playing as her character. I closed the gate and was hooked. What about you guys? Anyone have a cool story?

I started with Morrowind. Heading out into the world with no boundaries was absolutely glorious. I bought the game on a whim when I saw it used, had no idea what it was like. My roommate was like "you couldn't get a better game than this?" but he also got hooked once he actually played it and saw the freedom is allowed.

Death. Alot of death. Daggerfall Entry. Map Travel....Load...Dead on load... wtf? (Disease was fatal) "Homing Arrows figuring out how the hell to look at the rat biting your toes off killing you,and atrocious models. ah those were the days I prefered Daggerfall as it had not just a class creator, it had a whole "race" creator system, make an orc hate fire,make nords regenerate by being in the sun, skys the limit as long as you could keep it in a point system from being too strong or too weak.Oblivion is second line with Skyrim in last. however. i never beat Daggerfall,Arena or Morrowind (But i like what i saw) Had little hands on time with Arena and never for the life of me even when these games were physical copies saw a Redguard :/

My first was Morrowind. I was not a fan of RPGs at the time but I had played System Shock 2 and Deus ex and learned to like the leveling up.

So there I was in the bottom of some ship just arrived in some port. It looked like it might be dumb but when I got out it was beautiful and charming. I could go anywhere and it was huge. It seemed a little too easy but it was the beauty and exploration that kept me going. I remember there was a town with great sand storms that really had me feeling like I wanted to get to shelter. You felt the presence of the storm even when you were inside but it was nice because your face wasn't getting sand blasted.

I read a lot of the books to try and get the flavor of things, but I'm not a big fan of fiction, especially fantasy. The music has a way of letting you know you're in the elder scrolls universe. I'd say I'm a pretty big fan of the series even though I don't know or care too much about what's going on because I've spent a lot of time there. Still haven't installed Oblivion.

And here's my story - I was playing Skyrim late into the night. The air in the room was getting quite acrid with wood smoke. For days I had assumed the smoke was from someone in the neighborhood heating their house with wood but as it turned out I had a fire in the wall and had to evacuate.

It turns out fire can be quite a sneaky thing. It had vaporized a foot of a 2 X 10 beam in the ceiling before I called the fire department.

I started with Skyrim. My first experience that I can remember is killing the Riverwood chicken.

Eldar Scroll 4: Oblivion. at the time i thought it was the best game ever. I really wished Skyrim took more form that than dumb itself down.

luckily there are a TON of mods now that can make Skyrim really more immersive and truly an epic TES game...it's too bad the vanilla version doesn't have all of this to begin with ! :\

I started with Oblivion, and didn't get past level 10. The leveling was seemed crazy to me (still does), and I found myself seriously overleveled at only level 10, so I gave up. After I played Skyrim I tried it again, this time with a leveling mod, and I loved it.

Morrowind. Diasppointed with the graphics at the time but charmed by the background music and playability of the game. Now an ES fan.

Started with Morrowind as a kid. I own the retail copy, with the expansions.
I liked how giant it was, but it wasn't fun back then. There were LOTS of XP grinding games, I wasn't interested in another one. Preffered X2: The Threat.
I actually don't like the RPG genre too much, Skyrim is the only one that doesn't make me doze off.

My first TES game was Morrowind. I was like 6 years old I had no idea what I was supposed to be doing but had a blast just wandering around exploring and find cool things. Cliff racers were scary as hell to my 6 year old year old self though haha.

I started with Oblivion. I spent about 30 minutes making my kahjiit, started the game not knowing I started as a prisoner (whom can aproach every single guard in the Imperial city and not be recognized for an escaped criminal). Fortunately the crew of the Enterprise came to my rescue, they opened a secret tunnel and I followed them to freedom... Unfortunately along the way Captain Picard was slain by this fellow who came out of a wall.

I stepped out of the sewer a free man. The first thing I did was turn left and run around the island until I encountered a group of bandits, pulled out my club, then got killed.
I promptly restarted the game, made an Altmer and went full mage after that. Still couldn't save the captain from the guy in the wall though.

Speaking to a dark elf on a prison ship and then running for freedom along the coast of some strange land as soon as the ship hit port; only to be eaaten by a mudcrab.
