Feature: Top 5 NPCs from The Elder Scrolls Series

The Elder Scrolls games are colossal, that’s a fact. The last three titles each boast hundreds of unique locations to visit and hundreds more side quests to get stuck into. Yes, these really are more than just games, for many, they are a way of life. Yet for all of the individuals that you meet throughout each game, there are certain individuals that really stand out from the crowd. Join us as we take a look back at our Top 5 NPCs. (Bethesda Game Studios, Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall, PC, PS3, The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, The Elder Scrolls IV: Shivering Isles, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Xbox 360)

. M’aiq the Liar to me is the greatest ever, just finding him and listen to his wisdom is so funny. He is and will always be an excellent extra to the elder scroll series for always

Yeah M'aiq FTW! I really hope he stays on for future games, though I missed his calliper collecting in Skyrim.

I would have added Gloorolros from The Shivering Isles.
"Hey, wanna buy a stick?, I've got a fresh one right here".
That always made me laugh.

. M’aiq the Liar, is a character that they should never leave out. The guy or lady that does him, is excellent and i love finding him and saving my game
So when i load it up he is standing there and saying random things. Sounds sad i know, but he is amazing

To be honest I really can't think of any likeable NPC's in Skyrim.Seriously,I played it on PS3 and 360 for about 150 hours each and no one comes to mind at all.Oblivion had a shit load of great NPC's,though.

I agree.
I don't know what is wrong with Skyrim, but it feels like the game has no soul.
There isn't really anything in the game worth remembering.

I found the characters in Skyrim to be just too serious and humorless. A lot of Oblivions characters were so flamboyant, made talking to people entertaining. Some characters have interesting stories, but I think the voice acting is more to blame. I swear there are fewer voice actors in Skyrim than Oblivion, but maybe it's because all the nords sound like a couple of guys trying to do impressions of each other.

I love Skyrim but even I struggle to think of a memorable character, nothing wrong with the voice acting, but the characters are all personalityless. it's a shame.

I liked Umbra from Morrowind.

Just a badass Orc out the middle of nowhere looking for a memorable death.

I quite liked Cicero from Skyrim. That messed up dude had some memorable dialogue.

Jzargo wants you to test these scrolls of fire

Jzargo wants you to read this in his voice

all hail Jzargo *sneaks off*

i quite like Lydia.
my sarcastic little pack horse.

she's handy in combat, and she can't die unless i kill here, which i've been tempted to do on more than one occasion, only being stopped by her other talent.

and that is her prodigious carrying capacity.
i've had her carrying what must be tons of loot from all my dungeon raids.
especially that dwarven metal, that's bloody heavy.
oh and the dragon bones.
