I like that his story relevance does not make him super important or special compared to the other heroes but as a result he has probably the most claim to being proud of his achievements since he has the highest achievement to guidance ratio, no divine guidance, and the prophecy he is in is kinda lame to begin with. Referring to the main questline here. He (inb4 someone gets mad at me for saying he, I always think of him as the default Imperial male preset lol) feels the most just like a character in a story rather than the big hero the world revolves around, even the ending of the game is really martin's show.
Don't get me wrong though, I still like Morrowind's story leagues better. I just think it's an interesting concept for a main character.

And why can't the Hero of Kvatch be an argonian female? Also yeah I agree, I like the humble main questline. I don't like Skyrim's, they make the concept of a Dragonborn really uninteresting.

I mean it’s because Talos is a pedo god.
He groomed 11yo Barenziah spesifically because she was too young to get preggers, and when she did, he forced her to have a magical abortion in her sleep.
Talos is a piece of shit, and deserves to burn in the deepest depths of Oblivion.
And even if he wasn’t an irredeemable diddler, majority of his current worshippers are cringey macho nord scrotes who are all about beer, sex, and fighting.
Hope the knife-ears kill them all.

Ok but counterpoint: Elves are subhuman vermin and don't they deserve to exist.
Also the Thalmor are an existential threat to reality itself if I recall.

Yep, it is Morrowind time.

On a serious note, after playing other video games, I have find TES gameplay so dull. I hope they rework it in TES6. Specially magic and armour, I want to wear clothes over or under my armour.

Honestly I want Arkane Studios to make an Elder Scrolls game. Especially because the stealth archer build is going to be the meta anyway, so why not have better stealth mechanics?

Anonymous 26473

>>26462
All progression in these games is just wear the harder material, just wield the harder material sword and swing. And sometimes the higher level armor looks lame.

Anonymous 26475

>>26462
It is pretty dull and repetitive. And yes I hope TES6 brings back normal clothes over armor and personality/charisma stats that affect how you're treated. I don't remember that really, in Skyrim. Skyrim has persuade/intimidate/bribe but it's so easy to pass the skill test even as a khajiit. I also wish races would affect things. How was I able to enter any cities as a khajiit when my brethren were always stuck outside the city walls?

Anonymous 26502

I just wish for a better combat system. The one in Skyrim is absolutely retarded. You can just swing a sword or swing a sword harder to deal more damage. Mods actually fix it and I even managed to make a mod list with somewhat engaging combat, but still you can go so far when you work on such shit system as Skyrim's. I don't even want Souls-like system ffs. Motherfucking Mount&Blade was made some time before Skyrim by some broke ass turks and even it had great combat.
Can we at least have localized damage and critical attacks? Even FO3, a game by Bethesda that came before Skyrim, had this shit.

Same. Also very good choice of picture, spriggans are so cute i love them. Why do they attack me on sight… i wish i could talk to them. It would be cool if at least being a Bosmer would make them friendly with the player.

I also wish i could talk with giants, they are cute too, just chilling with their mammoths like a big family. I love Skyrim so much.

Here is a screenshot of the very beginning of my latest playthrough, i've decided to roleplay a very conservative nordic, this bitch wants Skyrim to belong to the nords therefore she will be a fervent stormcloack in the civil war. She chose the warrior stone like a true nord, and will join the companions.

Yes, I'm always so sad to have to kill the Spriggans! How cool would it be to have one as a follower. Aw, I like your Nord. Right now I'm just a fairly chaotic Bosmer who is working up the ranks of the Dark Brotherhood and the Theives Guild. I have a badass lady orc follower. It's fun.

It's so boring i never played it before, that's why i'm starting now because i've roleplayed everything else in the book. I never even finished the main quest never went as far as killing Alduin, so i want to see the end of that quest for once

>>26597
Bosmer are my favorite race, and i love playing them extremely chaotic, all over the place, doing a bit of every quest, not just "evil" (my evil playthroughs were always for Altmer or to a lesser extent Dunmer).

Bloodmoon made me really hate the Spriggans, in it they're screaming wooden cockroaches that you have to kill thrice to get rid of. You can actually get spriggans to be your friends with the silver tongue mod, although it doesn't let you speak to them

If Todd Howard publically announced that the next ES game is finished and ready but he won't release it until YOU specifically marry him for a month, would you take one for the team?

I think I could handle it if it was exactly one month because I think I could get him to trust me enough to gather details on future releases

I'd do it in a heartbeat, the video game industry is so boring at the moment i'm craving for a big studio to come out with something, and i've been waiting for TES6 for years. I don't care if it turns out to be shit, just get it over with, let's get married Todd. I don't expect a TES game to be anything but a janky shallow mess anyway

Most questlines in Skyrim suck, everything is shallow, nothing matters, the roleplay is minimal. So i don't get your point at all.

I just had a thought and I'm not sure how to grapple with this. What if the new Elder Scrolls game is shit? I played Skyrim when I was 11 and now I'm 22. What if I've literally spent half my life praying for a new game and then it's bad?

Dids you start with Morrowind or Oblivion?

Anonymous 26924

>>26897
You have to expect most high-budget games are likely to be shit in one way or another. If a AAA game ends up being good, I take it as a pleasant surprise. No disappointment to be had. I expect VI to be released half-finished, tons of bugs, loaded up with tons of DLC within the first two years that should have been released with the game in the first place, and NFT integration. I'd like if they returned more to Morrowind style, where players are encouraged to explore and actually take note of details in the world vs hand-holding, but I highly doubt that will happen. New gen of gamers gets especially frustrated when you expect them to read and digest information that doesn't explicitly tell you what to do or where to go.

Don't tell me you pre-ordered it…only retards pre-order.

Anonymous 26926

I started with Oblivion but comment was more about the state of Bethesda in general. ES6 is going to be bad because Bethesda is not interested in making narrative driven rpgs anymore, they're more like giant immersive sims that are a mile wide and an inch deep. So I think it's a given that the next ome is gonna suck but that probably will not (and should not) influence how much people enjoy them.

Anonymous 26927

>>26926
Oh yeah I totally asked the question to convey the point you brought up, I lore studied Morrowind more than played it. Also started with Oblivion but would rather play the mods for that than skyrim at the point due to the different focus in design. I miss my otherworldly rpgs instead of this same dreary euro nonsense or bubblegum pop jrpgs.
All my hobbies are dying in front of my eyes, truly I underestimated the horror of growing old.

Not really since daedric princes aren't male or female, it would be more like one having the pfp of a guy, female sheo mods are just as lore friendly imo
sure other princes might stick to their appearances more faithfully but its fucking sheogorath nigga turns into birds and flowers anyway

Is Elder Scrolls online good/worth getting? Is the lore consistent to the other games? Is the gameplay good? Don't you have to buy expansions, though? Does it feel authentically Elder Scrolls? Or is it just a shallow mmorpg themed around the Elder Scrolls universe?

Nah, online is legit a waste of time. It is kinda consistent but its not great and the game is slow as hell dont even bother the best online game is probably Final Fantasy 14 or MapleStory because Maple has always been good.

It expands on some lore like Sea Elves lol you might find that silly tho, and u get to see the khajit Elsewyr, parts of High Rock, Hammerfell, Valenwood, Summerset Isles etc. But thats nothing you cant get on YouTube lore videos for free you should watch those its better than playing the game.
