Summary: I'm a huge fan of the TES games, but I really do believe this to be one of Bethesda's best, and one of the best RPGs ever made, just a few steps behind games such as the Baldur's Gate Saga, Torment, and Diablo II. Sure, it's an old game, with mediocre graphics, but the variety of game play options is just astounding. You can be a noble knight, a grave-robbing criminal, or pretty much anyth ing you want to be.
Summary: It is like god of RPG went down to the developers and gave them the knowledge of a perfect RPG. Leveling, lots of awesome characters skills, deep lore, ability to buy any building, naked women, great story and so on. All this things, that recently appeared in modern games. And then developers tried to put all this knowledge into one big game... That were are all the problems started. You c an't make a perfect RPG with mortal hands.
Summary: Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall: This game was released in 1996 and deservingly won a Game of the Year Award. This game was my favourite game of all time until Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim came out and replaced it as my favourite. This game was a very ambitious attempt to create a massive interactive realistic RPG world where your actions would have consequences in the game. How you chose to talk to someone would change how they respond to you.
Summary: Daggerfall is one of the greatest RPG's ever made. The amount of content, things to do, quality of content, and story were all overwhelming and memorable. The game's explorable land is actually twice the size of Great Britain, making it the largest, non-generated, landmass of any game of all time. It takes two real world weeks to walk form one side of the map to the other. That is pretty d amn big.
Summary: Daggerfall is a great game. Though seriously dated by today's standards... it was a huge leap forward in free-roaming RPGs when it was released. Of course it was realeased with a huge amount of bugs as well. It looked great when it came out... and it was absolutely huge. After being patched (though never completely fixed) it was a great game. You can play through the story (which is fai rly good) or you can just wander around and do what you want.
