You forgot the 2 first games. The first elderscrolls game I played was Daggerfall. I thought it was great but I was to young to understand all the quests in english so I just ran around wacking people down in towns and running away. All the games where great when they where new. Atm I think Skyrim is best but Morrowind was the most groundbreaking imo.

Makes sense and yes i did my bad.

Personally looking at morrowind i can say it does look ahead of it's time but i feel skyrim is alot better as well it should and is as time has passed.

Yeah skyrim is the best game now for me now. I probably wouldnt enjoy morrowind now besides the nostalgia factor.

Oblivion is sooooooooooooooooooooo much better and shame on you for getting bored..Skyrim is weak in every single way. It's factions are boring it's everything is boring however the World is a nice place to look at. I hope Skyrim was a one off and we return to proper Rpging in the next game.

how was oblivion better it was bland and the combat was awful.

There was no running.
NO CRAFTING
the skills were useless it felt and the GUI'S were terribly designed i felt

The story was 5/10 at best.


oblivion was slow paced which is what killed it for me the characters felt bland also.

i would like it if they re-did the hud and gui's and added a sprint button and changed how the combat worked.

an rpg is more then just story alone.

Actually, in Oblivion, your character was running the whole time. You didn't have to select it. Athletics improved your runnng speed.

To each their own of course. I played "some" Morrowind, but only after Oblivion. So I didn't get that "oooh" feeling when playing it for the 1rst time. I didn't like the fact that my character moved extremely too slow and every time I wanted to sneak I had to actually hold down the "ctrl" button. Those 2 are what did it for me.

I, personly, enjoyed Oblivion. Though combat could of been faster. Skills could of been improved. 2-Handed and 1-Handed skill was not distinguished from each other. Depended only wether you choose blade or blunt. You could easily power lvl most characters you build right from the start.

As a mage, sneak mode and summon skeleton, either use blade or spell to kill it... 3 skills at the same time. And just spam heals, sheild, light spell and a mysticism spell. Could do all this just standing in the middle of town.

All in all, not much of a challenge getting leveled. Yes, could of been much more of an improvement done to the game.

The soundtrack was great, I only had a few gltches ( Items flying around everytime you enter certain areas)

These best/worst arguments are stupid. It comes down to personal preference and nothing more. Oblivion offered things that Skyrim overlooked, Skyrim offers things that Oblivion didn't, etc. I loved each of them because they are awesome fun.

I find it interesting though that at no point since Skyrim has come out, have I ever considered going back to play Oblivion despite the fact that those games are sitting within arms' reach the chair I am in right now. That tells me something about my own preferences.

Skyrim/Oblivion are casual to the max. Morrowind will have you sweating in minutes and it actually requires some manner of intelligence to do quests.

Yeah. Systems get better, but console generation gets even more stupid from year to year.

Most peoples crying that everything in game is just "too f****** hard" seems to hail from CG department.

Don't get me wrong. I am not accusing players for company decisions. It would be like accusing sheeps instead of the butcherer.

True but if im playing a game and want difficulty i don't want it to make me sweat i want to enjoy myself not want to stab myself with a stick.

Im not really a casual gamer but i like some casual games at time i would consider Skyrim not as casual as games like pvz more standard.

Problem is old quests used to make you read and figure out from there no quest pointers fast travel etc.

I like that and enjoy it at first but over time it becomes tedious and starts to become nothing less then a pain in the ♥♥♥.

I wanted to like Morrowind, I really did, but when your map looks as though you should be able to go a certain way, you spend fifteen minutes walking at a snail's pace (seriously, I'm disabled and I walk faster than that) and failing to get over hills which are not remotely represented on the map... I dunno, I just feel like navigation shouldn't be the most irritatingly difficult part of the game. I quite liked the actual questy stuff that I managed to do, but I just couldn't get into it.

I started Oblivion a week or so ago and I liked it a lot more, but it just didn't draw me in the way Skyrim did, I'm not even sure why. I think partly it was down to the GOTY edition having all the DLCs enabled so I got spammed with about a million notifications (including I think TWO houses which I had somehow inherited while in prison??) of quests as soon as I left the sewers. But beyond that, I don't really know. I ended up drifting back to Skyrim. I'm a lot more confident that when I'm feeling a bit less foggy of head I'll actually go back and properly play Oblivion than I am with Morrowind, but for now, I just kind of like Skyrim best. Can't really justify it, I don't think it's a better game or anything, but I don't necessarily think it's a worse game, either, it's just, you know, different.

Morrowind was extremely irritating. Oblivion was good. Skyrim is a beast graphically and with the ease of use when it comes to mods. I think the story was pretty weak and some of the things that most bother me about Skyrim are story related. For example, if you want to play as a criminal with a large bounty on your head, guards will run right up to you even though you are hidden or even invisible due to how the game handles various tasks. Very dissapointing and immersion breaking. Oblivion handled this style of gameplay very well. Guards and other people didn't know you were there if you were hidden, but in Skyrim, you can be sneaking or invisible and here comes this idiot courier running up to you or a guard. Dumb dumb dumb.

true but modding fixes these small things XD

For me it's

Oblivion > Skyrim > Morrowind

That's just personal opinion though, I have played all three and I find Oblivion to be the most fun and animating doesn't need FNIS like Skyrim, which I'm wary about as it can easily fluff up your game. Also I really enjoy the night cycle sky mod in Oblivion so much that I wish it was ported to Skyrim :^(

I tried Morrowind but you need a load of mods to make it playable in some aspects, in vanilla it feels a bit broken and clunky. Considering it was only a few years before Oblivion it hasn't aged well. However I do admire the quests and characters, that's what makes it enjoyable.

I've played all three games, and I prefer Skyrim. They are all great games, but Skyrim has a different style than the earlier games. Some people interpret this as "dumbing down" or "console conspiracy" or crap like that, but what it's about is a shift from roll-playing to role-playing. Skyrim has the best immersion (however you choose to define that) of any TES game by far, even without mods.
