I haven't played any of the other Elder Scrolls...do you think it's too late to join the party?
I mean...do I miss too much if I just play part V without playing the rest?

ETA: In other words...is it newbie-friendly...

You could pick up the last 2 on the cheap on Steam I imagine.

I didn't play the first one.

Yeah well...do I have to is my question I guess. Is it that I won't get anything unless I play the others.
Since you didn't play the first one, did you feel lost within the story the first time you played?

Nope. Each one is set in a different time and at a different place.

I didn't feel I lost anything. I have only played the the fourth one (Oblivion).
Skyrim is set 200 years later in the same universe.

I've Preloaded Skyrim. :grin: :smoke:

Fantasy without dragons is no fantasy, LOTR could have been so much better :what:

This is one bad thing about living so far from the International Date Line.

Maybe we could move UTC to Los Angeles. :grin:

Oh my, I can't play this...too much stuff to do in real-life :(
Looks like the kind of game that sucks you in and doesn't let you go, not good.

I've just played a few hours of it - it's very good! It seems the town NPCs are much better than they were in Oblivion, which is something that always annoyed me.
Too bad I have an exam today - I want to keep playing. :/

AAAAAARRRRRGGGGGHHHH! :ahrr: :ahrr: :ahrr:

I'M SO FUCKING EXCITED!!!! :dance: :disco: :dance: :disco: :dance:

:party: :party: :party:

I've been waiting 5 years for this game and I get to play it tomorrow! Amazon should be delivering it while I'm out at uni. I've booked Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday off work and I plan to play it all weekend, too.

I don't think it's going to be any exaggeration to say that this will be the finest single player game ever!

I'm now going to try and get some sleep. Tomorrow will be the longest day of uni ever.
