Newcomer Juan wrties: "The Elder Scrolls series has a storied history with lore that could fill a fair few textbooks.
Arena (released in 1994) was intended as a simple arena combat game that shifted towards an RPG during development. Daggerfall & Morrowind expanded this concept into fully fledged 3D worlds. Oblivion was shoved into the foreground as the Western RPG on a fledgling Xbox 360. Since then, there were always massive expectations of the follow up, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
Those expectations were not misplaced."
