    If they used the random generation technology we have today for games like Minecraft, No Man's Sky, and Elite Dangerous, then they could make an amazing fantasy RPG experience! We do need a main plot that's epic, and at least a few hand crafted side quests that are interesting, but the rest could be just handled by an algorithm. Including features in the background to make the world feel dynamic like regions being conquered by other regions or new leaders taking over after ones fall off can not only make a world that never feels the same each time you play, but one that genuinely feels alive, with you participating in it.

    It's funny during that 90's period games using real actors. I think they really thought it was gonna be something big in the future. Don't remember how many hours i play this game but it's in the 100's.

    If the game wasn't so clunky and unintuitive. I'd play it for more than 3 minutes before giving up. Seriously its horrible. Say what you will about later TES but at least they're playable.

    Bethesda should be ridiculed, not gloriously memed for their bugs. I will never give them praise for the fact that as time has gone by, each subsequent Elder Scrolls game has become infinitely more bug filled but far fewer bugs have actually been addressed by Bethesda, instead leaving it to modders to fix. Free labour I guess.

    There’s something very charming about the early elder scrolls games. I vastly prefer them to everything post- and including morrowind. To me they always felt like tedious busywork and very unimmersive

    My fondest memory of this game is being hired by king what's-his-face to get a ring back from a pawn shop. I got the ring and went back to the city, but it was at night so I was shot with a poison dart. I made it into the castle, delivered the ring, and promptly dropped dead in front of the king. I hadn't saved.

    I wish they port these games to mobile or something. Just like FF7, I can't play these games at pc because of gameplay but I still want to enjoy the experience. I heard so many great things about FF7 but I'm skeptical on playing it on my Playstation. But once I downloaded the mobile port let's just say I'm not seen around for 2 weeks.

    I had an issue of GamesMaster magazine with a review for Daggerfall and it was such a glowing review that I kept reading it over and over again imagining the game. I didn't have PC and I never played the game. I just remembered it and found this video. First time I've actually seen the game running and it's even better than I imagined it 24 years ago.

    The most striking thing I remember from this game is that the very first dungeon was, at least for my 11 year old self, not just hard...it was BRUTAL HELL mode. At some point I randomly created a female assassin that could kill every single enemy with one dagger swing, so that balanced things out a bit. >:o)
