    The Elder Scrolls Anthology (TES1 - 5 + OB DLC!)

    Too bad Battlespire and Redguard aren't included, but since i'm a huge TES fan/collector, I will most likely get this. Great pack for just €60.

    As for the smaller Oblivion DLC, they are NOT included (no horse armor for you), which is retarded. Should contain everything by now. I know The Knights of the Nine retail disc had all the DLC included as well.

    That's crappy and lazy that it doesn't have the Oblivion DLC, even if it was mostly uselss tripe. It also looks to me like those maps are reprints of the originals. So meh. For $50 I would buy it

    It's a shame Bethesda doesn't have all the code for Arena and Daggerfall so they could be updated to work natively on newer hardware and OS systems, Redguard and Battlespire too but they aren't even included.

    Strange decision not to have the Oblivion DLC but otherwise it looks like a rather solid compilation. :)

    Arena was groundbreaking. Daggerfall improved on pretty much everything, it was amazing. Best in the series. Morrowind was a good game too, loved it. Oblivion was terrible. Skyrim was slightly better. My opinion if course, but the last 2 games ruined a one great franchise for me.

    Lovely bundle btw, but some discs are missing, how is that an anthology.

    I had my best memories on Morrowind (too young for the others).

    Oblivion gets a lot of hate but I still quite enjoyed it completely vanilla. The combat was a lot better than in Morrowind. It was a shame they went with scaled enemies and had to have the entire game voice acted (and only by a few people which made it seem repetitive). But all in all not a bad game imo. I enjoyed it more than Skyrim, somehow.

    Boom! ^^ This is the best way to explain Oblivion in a short sentence.

    Skyrim with all its mods is pretty and all, but thats what i find im doing more than anything, seldom do i play or go cave diving for crap. Skyrim for me, even on first playthrough, just felt smaller than oblivion, most obvious whenever im back at whiterun (the first major city after Riverwood at the start) and standing out in the open just outside Whiteruns gates. Its looks big but as im walking around, it revels itself to be more of an illusion more so than Oblivion did.

    if that makes sense.

    ...i hope this means they'll at some point or another sell arena and daggerfall individually at some point through, say, steam, ofcourse with the dos emulator, but those are the only two in this pack i care about as i own the rest....

    Arena and Daggerfall are freeware now though and available for download from Bethesda directly unless something has changed recently, however due to lack of source code and such assets they are unmodified and Arena is the floppy version with a smaller intro and outro that lack voice acting.
    (Arena first as part of a ten year celebration and then Daggerfall shortly afterwards.)

    For those who are still angry about the Oblivion DLC: the GOTY Deluxe version is now 75% off on Steam.
    Still balls for them being allergic to include the DLC with every OB pack. Same crap happened with the 5th anniversary edition, which is just the GOTY version.

    Hate? I reckon Bethesda were probably fine with that 'hate' when you look at its review scores:

    http://www.metacritic.com/game/pc/the-elder-scrolls-iv-oblivion

    and consider Oblivion's enormous sales figures over the years. :)

    Have to say though that considering both Skyrim Legendary Edition and Oblivion 5th Anniversary Edition are available off Amazon for a combined total price of £24 (UK pounds), Morrowind GOTY is available off Steam for £9.74 and the two DOS games are now free to play, it's up to the customer if he wants to pay £16 for a box!!

    It gets a lot of forum hate at least, I know it was a successful game. But pundits just cite that the average gamer has a low IQ and needs their hand held or some tripe like that.

    While i understand this, do they come with the dos emulater all set up, fully, out of the box?(install) if not, then my want still stands

    While i understand this is pretty much "lazy", i have no desire to set up any game using dos emulators such as dosbox for the simple fact that there is way too many settings in them that could, or could not, affect the game in some way or another, and since i have no idea what i'm doing, i could set it up, play the entire game, and only realize in the end there was supposed to be a sky...if i had just set the dos emulator correctly...

    I have all TES games I like with all their DLCs on Steam already. This edition is nothing special imo, CE of each individual game is a better thing to have, though the only physcial CE I have of a TES game is Oblivion one.
