And cave labyrinths make me very upset.

For me Arena is better game in this saga.

Most people think Daggerfall is better (even if it's understandable since Arena is older), although they think Arena is damn good too. I do, for example. But again I agree that dungeon maps in Daggerfall are impossible and they take quite some joy out of crawling. And Yoga isn't the only one who prefers Arena over Daggerfall, of course.

Do get Arena (from here, or it's free from ElderScrolls.com too).

Great. You found the one I was looking for. I think there was a third one too.

The first one is bit of awful, especially with the right soundcard settings, there's some horrible screeching.

At least they got it right on Skyrim



Anyway, my quick overall view of the series: While Arena is not a bad game, it really shows its age. There's all kinds of bland and overall its very generic. And repetitive.

And while I think Daggerfall is my favorite part of the series, Morrowind is a fantastic game too, as are Oblivion and Skyrim (although I havent played those yet, I think the overall opinion of those is worth believing). While the world seems to get smaller and smaller, it gets more interesting and detailed. Arena and Daggerfall had lands as big as continents but its all filled with clones of cardboard citizen. Morrowind just gives you an island with 10 to something towns, but at least they all feel more fleshed out. Its random computer-generated world vs designers working with a level editor. Both techniques actually work well and give different kind of results (good and bad) and overall, its all playable if you give it a change.

I liked Morrowind a lot too, although I didn't finish it; some day I'll take up the saved game again. I'd say it's easier to become ber-powerful in Morrowind compared to Arena or Daggerfall, what with alchemy and all. It's also the first TES game with resolution higher than 320x200, that's good. I haven't played Oblivion or Skyrim.

I recommend Skyrim. It, Daggerfall, and Arena are the only Elder Scrolls games that I have ever played. Just one piece of advice, if you are playing Skyrim, put the difficulty level masterful, it makes the game more fun and difficult.

Then you're missing out on the best one. Morrowind is hands down the winner from the 5 TES games (not counting the spinoffs, ofc).

I'll try to get Morrowind and Oblivion if I have the money. Although I'll be sure to get the optical disc versions and not the Steam versions, mainly because I want to play offline.
