Seriously though, who voted Daggerfall and Arena?

I mean, it's just astounding to me that people would vote for those two. They're good games, but they haven't aged well. Even Morrowind is starting to show it's age.

As in characters you've made that are related to one of your previous characters?

My Skyrim characters are all descendants of my original Oblivion character. He still lives on as the Prince of madness.

Iv'e been fortunate enough to not have dragons attack inside walled cities I didn't even know they could do that until my brother ended up killing a lot of them in Solitude.

My vote is for Daggerfall, It was the first ES game I played and I enjoyed every minute of it.

Oh yeah I forgot. horses in Oblivion would stay where I left him and fight by my side when I'm in trouble. Skyrim horses run away as soon as I dismount anywhere.
In ancient times, men built wonders, laid claim to the stars and sought to better themselves for the good of all. But we are much wiser now.

If the road is easy, the destination is worthless.

Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power.

I highly doubt my soul mate is living in Thailand and only a click away.

Only stolen ones. Horses you own should either stay put or (unfortunately) charge fearlessly into combat.

Only horses that you stole or didn't purchase. Purchased horses stay still or aid in combat.

So, how much longer until you guys think I should throw up the new poll? A week? A few days? Now?

Well, it's already been 8 days since you started the poll. I say you should change it quite soon.

Just finished Bleak Falls Barrow after 10 levels of ignoring it with my new spellthief, Va'do.

Eh. I don't think that the Oblivion ones stand out as much as the Skyrim ones. I see what you're saying, but I feel like the Skyrim Ebony weapons look cooler and stand out among the others.

I've been really enjoying Skyrim Special edition, the mod support for consoles made the game worth playing again. I'd spent years playing skyrim to death.

I don't mind the ebony weapons too much (except the swords and dagger; those are neither pretty nor practical). Now the Daedric ones, those are just absurd.
Also, what's with all the metal bows in Skyrim? Those just wouldn't work.

I'm half-peasant, so that's good news.

Think I'll do Stormcloak this time. Used to always go Imperial, but I find myself becoming more and more sympathetic to the Stormcloak cause.

Also, since I built my house in Morthal when I last played the game years ago, I think I'll build mine in either Dawnstar or Falkreath. Anyone have any opinions about those build sites?

Oh, and are Dawnguard and Dragonborn good? Never got them on PC.

I like dawnguard and db, stormcloaks = divided empire = dead empire. You think the dominion is going to stop when it takes cyrodill out empire for lyfe

What is the mod scene like for the console version? Ive went back to playing the original one on steam with a ton of mods, dont see the need to install the special edition at the moment, might do it just to see.

Pretty good so far. We've got a lot of good mods on XB1. To name a few, The Forgotten City, Inigo, Campfire and Frostfall if you're into that kind of stuff, and ROADS! ON MAPS!

On PC there was a very helpful UI mod. For example it sorted items by type in chests and gave different types of items different symbols and colors to make finding them in your inventory very helpful.

Anything like that on Xbox?

Forgotten City is a solid mod, i enjoyed it alot, its a nice difference from most stuff i do in the game. And roads on maps is quite handy, ive never tried the other ones.

I wish. I've seen it in videos and it looks so good, but but there aren't many UI altering mods on that level, if any.

Sky UI is pretty handy to have, i dont mind the radial menu system when i was playing on my 360 but on pc it was better to have sky ui. Think the old menu system might be better for console though imo, set up more for it i guess.
