From Strategyinformer.com: "The Elder Scrolls is a series that can easily be reduced into the context of a playground slanging match. For some, Bethesda's seminal franchise is a rich tapestry of RPG finery that some people 'just don't get' while for others it's a game that 'feels quiet, empty, and a bit dead really'.
For the record, I started with the second instalment in this series: Daggerfall. For me, the Elder Scrolls series has been a mixed bag, while I enjoyed the High Rock adventure as an interesting product of its pre-MMO age, in contrast I always felt that Morrowind and Oblivion respectively were missing something: namely a few people to jolly along with into a crypt. Ultimately it all felt a little too vast and lacked the focus that a studio such as Bioware might bring to a game".
