The Elder Scrolls Anthology is all five games in a box

The Elder Scrolls has been around for almost 20 years, and it would take about that long to play through all five massive open-world games. Whether you're a longtime wanderer or you're just Skyrim-curious, you'd better clear out your calendar for The Elder Scrolls Anthology.

The anthology bundles all five games--Arena, Daggerfall, Morrowind, Oblivion, and Skyrim--and the latter three's expansions in one pretty box. It also includes enough of those classic paper maps to cover your walls with Tamriel geography.

The Elder Scrolls Anthology will release on September 10 in North America and September 13 in Europe, and will cost $80 or £50.

    I was about to ask: 'Why is everyone saying this is just for PC', but then I saw the PC logo on the Skyrim disc ... doesn't mean it won't be available on console, but it probably won't.

    I'm just trying to imagine if someone got this, and did everything there was to do in every game (Not even counting the endless randomized Skyrim quests). That's easily over 1,000 hours of gameplay. It could be even twice that.

    Uhhh... so they spent a few months fixing Daggerfall then, right? I loved that game, but it was so buggy as to be almost unplayable, with game ruining bugs being the norm. Many people never finished that game due to corrupt saves and broken missions. It was actually the first game I ever knew of where people traded save files pretty regularly, often to get past issues they'd run into. I imagine it's going to 10x worse emulated with Windows' half-assed compatability functions. And if I remeber correctly, Arena was not without a slew of problems as well. If Daggerfall wasn't already free and thus not relevant to the package, I would actually consider that a damn near unlawful ripoff (presuming a serious bug fixing effort was not completed, which is probably the case). Other than two of those games truly being rather inconsequential to this bundle deal, it's a good package especially for anyone who hasn't already played these games. Actually, it's a life ruining package for those people.

    In some kind of freak accident the only thing not absurd about this thing is the price! Considering you get all five, the DLC for the Skyrim, and the extra goodies for the price of a collector's edition this is a great deal. Also since it's PC you'll have access to all the mods people have released. The lack of a gaming PC makes this unfortunate for me though.

    As far as I can see, You get all the DLC for all of them (Morrowind and Oblivion too)

    I want those maps.

    I've enjoyed the heck out of these games since Daggerfall, but this reeks of a cash grab. Like JimmyP91 mentioned, it would be nice if they modernized the older games for Windows 7 (8 doesn't exist to me) but then you'd pay $30 a game for the 'privelege' for the re-release.
  • Galford007 - August 1, 2013 5:28 p.m.

    Or 'privilege' even.
  • Bloodstorm - August 2, 2013 4:59 a.m.

    Cash grab? It's $80 dollars for a nice case containing all the Elder Scrolls games, maps and art book. You'll spend about that much just to try and add the floppy release of Arena to your collection, more if you want to find a CD version of Arena. This is nice for someone who wants a nice collector set. I only own Skyrim and Oblivion (and I have the free digital releases of Arena and Daggerfall). I might jump for this because it is cheap considering Skyrim Legendary is $60 right now.

    for those of us that are educated, we prefer in depth games that require thought, patience and a pulse.

    One could say COD is just as boring. Im only assuming youve played all the elder scrolls games before since you know that they are ALL boring. How generic are they if Skyrim is now the game rpgs are compared to now. Lastly they are not jrpgs, Bethesda was founded in Bethesda Maryland. See when you know what you're talking about you're less likely to look dumb on the internet. Correct spelling also helps to avoid this.

    Is this going to come to consoles at all in any way shape or form
  • JimmyP91 - August 1, 2013 4:52 p.m.

    To be fair, it's more 3 games (plus expansions) for $80 seeing as you can download Arena and Daggerfall for free from Bethesda, although I don't think I've ever seen a version of Arena and Daggerfall built specifically for modern operating systems. I've only ever seen those games run on DOS or DOSBOX. Still, pretty good deal none the less.
  • R_U_Guys_From_British - August 1, 2013 4:42 p.m.

    EURGHHH, I'm going to have to buy this, I own all of them already and my pc can't play skyrim but fuck it I have to buy this. £50 isn't bad and it'll be the perfect reason to revisit morrowind.

    These titles+dlc on sale (which happens very frequently) add up to quite a bit less than this package, you may want to save the money and get these digitally if you don't mind not getting the physical extras.

    I really wish I had a gaming PC right now.
