Summary: As a fan of role-playing games and open-world sandboxes, I've long held a special place in my heart for the Elder Scrolls franchise. Since I was first introduced to the series with Morrowind back in 2002, I've spent countless hours exploring Bethesda's immense fantasy worlds in search of loot,...
Pros: Expansive, immersive world full of pleasing landscapes, Many intricate, involving quests, Complex but rewarding PvP
Cons: Multiplayer rarely feels like a crucial aspect of the game, PvP map is a bit too big for its own good
Excerpt: Some might say The Elder Scrolls Online was doomed from the beginning. That despite all its promise and close ties to the monumental critical and commercial success that was Skyrim, it was fatally flawed before it even released.

Though valiant in their efforts the modders never came close, leaving this monumental dream to newly-minted studio ZeniMax Online.
Pros: Alliance War fun for those into PvP, Modding support helps improve experience
Excerpt: The Elder Scrolls Online is the first attempt at taking the world of The Elder Scrolls to a massively multiplayer online format. The result is a good game but one that will make fans of the series wonder why they should pay the expensive $15 a month subscription fee to play a game from a series that...
