    I always love it when they include a little game with my bugs.

    This does look very cool, though.

    I'm pretty sure the gaming industry is at the point where it never needs to release a new game ever again.

    All they have to do is release rolling HD remakes of the previous games once the majority of new gamers are young enough to have never played them. People will throw money at them.

    I thought we wanted the games industry to not ape the film industry?

    My comment was made cynically.

    That's pretty sexy. Though completely not worth it if bought digitally.

    Make a Console version pls.
    Preferably next gen, and I'll throw all my money at you.

    TES 1 and 2 are free to download on Bethesda's own homepage, and I own the other three. Soooo.... yeah. They should've thrown the two other games in there as well. Battlespire and Redguard.

    If only the mods could come preinstalled...

    I'm not the biggest fan of The Elder Scrolls games, to put it lightly, but that's a whole lot of content for a pretty reasonable price. It should be the perfect warm up to the franchise before the inevitable disappointment of TES Online.

    I forgot
    If I didn't already own all the Elder Scrolls games I would probably drop some money on this.

    Actually I would love if they would remake TES 1- 3
    never tried 1 and 2 but with 3 it was just way to much text to read and after reading for like 10 hours before finaly starting to do anything at all I never could really enjoy this game as I didn't want to just skip all the text like most people did.
    A small graficoverhoul and voice acting and I would pay 100€ for this package

    I'll probably get it if it also gets released in Europe with that bonus content (maps and stuff).

    Here? Right here? What about, say... over there?
    I don't have a computer that can handle oblivion or skyrim, but I may buy it so when I eventually do.

    Sad but true. I hope they continue to release a new game once in a while; sequels tend to get boring. Anyone remember FFXII?

    Do Arena and Daggerfall even work on modern PC's? If so do they require DOSbox or something of that sort?

    I suppose I could dig out the copies I got for free on magazine cover discs like a decade ago and check, but that's too much work.

    If it's anything ow GOG does it with old games, it'll run the game on top of DOSbox...I think.
