I didn't have this game, but then I took my arrow to the link.

So the question for me is do I need to play Oblivion first? GMG have the game of the year version for £3.74 which is quite tempting.

@TungstenShark: I suppose that you might get a minor spoiler if you read absolutely all of the books in Skyrim, but you really don't have to have played Oblivion to appreciate the sequel. The setting and timeframe difference is enormous.

However, Oblivion will feel rather primitive next to Skyrim, so you might want to play it in order!

I would, though, recommend that you play Morrowind. It's still my favourite Elder Scrolls title and for me breaks the mould from the D&D fantasy cliche playbook that Oblivion and even Skyrim subscribed to. Really alien setting with crazy arcitecture and fauna, though cliff racers are literally the devil.

I tried Oblivion and couldn't get into it at all.
Wasn't interested in buying Skyrim but picked it up on a whim when it was on special offer - and absolutely loved it.
Didn't feel I was missing anything story-wise.

Had the same experience. Heard so much praise but found the experience a bit too "loose" for my tastes. Also the NPC voice acting just was too much to take.

I'll give Skyrim a go for £2 though.

I can also confirm that there's no need to play the earlier games. I didn't, and I was still absorbed by the world of Skyrim for 100+ hours. Even at that point, I hadn't done that much in the game. I just needed to get to the end, so I could move on to something else.:)

Thanks for that guys! On your advice I've just gone with Skyrim and not Oblivion, although I had to battle hard against my completist nature 8)

@JonLester - Thanks for the tip, I'll keep an eye for Morrowind, but at the moment the cheapest I can find it for is £13

@TungstenShark: Enjoy! This will probably be the best £2 you've spent in a while - there's dozens if not hundreds of hours of gameplay here, not to mention countless amazing free mods.

I'll keep an eye out for a Morrowind deal myself, but if you do get around to it, remember that it's 12 years old! ;) We've come a long way graphically speaking, and it's rather old-school in its approach to levelling, stats and the lack of dynamically levelled content. Personally, I love it.

Yeah Oblivion's probably my third favourite out of the modern Elder Scrolls games. Love me some Morrowind. If you're playing on PC too, Skywind is unfinished but is a mod that ports Morrowind in to the PC Skyrim engine.

Would also recommend checking out Morrowind Overhaul v3 and Tamriel Rebuilt.
