Quite frankly, the Elder Scrolls are the Lord of the Rings of RPG gaming. Their open worlds with vast landscapes and intriguing characters have created hundreds (if not thousands) of hours of gameplay per game. The quests, stories, guilds, etc are always carefully planned and masterfully done. This begs the question: which game was the best? Most people have only planned Morrowind, Oblivion, and Skyrim; I, myself, also fall into that category of people. My favorite is Oblivion, which is odd considering most people usually say it's the weakest of those three. First of all, the soundtrack is brilliant. Jeremy Soule *is* the John Williams of video game music, and I would say this is his second best soundtrack (behind Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic). The story is the most fascinating for me. I love the impending threats that reach into a supernatural world. I love that basically nobody in this game is safe. Our main protagonists are not guaranteed life, and in many instances they will suffer. I like the color design in this one much better than Skyrim. It could just be personal taste -- I live in the countryside, so I prefer more vibrant, bright colors opposed to gloomy colors. The guilds, particularly the Dark Brotherhood and the Thieve's Guild, are epic in this game. Much better than their Skyrim counterparts (in my opinion). What is your favorite game in the Elder Scrolls saga? Do you embrace the newer generation games, or do you prefer the older ones?
