Skyrim I have on the above list and I've also played Morrowind. I honestly find those games kind of clunky (the movement, etc) but there is definitely a ton of content. It's also, probably, the fantasy theme. I just went to look at my list (I wasn't sure myself) and I have to go all the way down to the 7/10 games to Baldur's Gate 2 before I find a fantasy themed game. I must be biased.Arnoxthe1 said:There is a baffling lack of Elder Scrolls on this list. But that's good news because BOY OH BOY have I got a new timesink for you. If you really want to experience everything from the beginning, play:
A little bit of The Elder Scrolls I: Arena
A little bit of The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall
The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind (Make sure to patch it to hell with unofficial patches to make sure it's completely stable, and also, get a mod that allows you to run without consuming Stamina. Trust me.)
The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Get the Unofficial Patch for it like Morrowind. And get Oscuro's Oblivion Overhaul or else deal with some TERRIBLE level scaling. And if you want to although I highly advise it anyway, in the Oblivion.ini, mod the zooming whenever you enter conversation so the stupid ass game doesn't do a complete closeup on all those AWFUL faces. *shudder* Or maybe even better yet, just get a mod that completely overhauls the faces.)
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (Once again, Unofficial Patch. You know the drill. But thankfully, that's all you really need for this game.)
Morrowind and up can be modded very extensively so keep that in mind, although, I would just play the games vanilla first before you start modding them so you know what you want and what will work well.
If you don't want to do all that though and just want the Elder Scrolls experience quick and dirty, just buy Skyrim, although I might heavily recommend going through the games in sequence.
Now, I can recommend a TON more games but I think I'll just leave it at that until you need more.
Thank you Arnoxthe1 for all the information provided. You definitely went out of your way to help me out and for that I am very greatful. Thank you sir (or ma'am) and have a lovely Sunday.
