TES used to have amazing writing, story, and art direction. I think TES may well have been the most interesting and creative fantasy setting ever depicted in a video game. The amount of lore and stuff around Morrowind and Daggerfall is simply amazing and awesome.
And then Oblivion came out and ruined it forever.
Fuck Oblivion, and fuck Skyrim (Moar like The Elder's Balls 69: Anal-Rim, amirite?)
You can skip ahead to episode 7, but from that point on don't skip a single episode. The saga of Dongs "REO" Speedwagon is the greatest epic of our time.
