The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall is important for a number of reasons, for its pioneering place in a series that would include Morrowwind, Oversight and Skyrim to the fact that it was a Game of the Year winner in its own right. The thing is, the game is a 3D adventure from 1996, and trying to play it in 2022 sucks.

Not his fault! For the 90s, he was doing his thing. It’s just that early 3D games didn’t have the same universal fluidity and ease of movement that we associate with more modern titles, and so anyone who’s been more familiar with later games in the series trying to play daggerfall now would be in for a struggle, especially when it comes to fighting.
