This week, Matt leads us through a franchise that began in 1994 and hasn’t pumped the breaks. Initially put out by Bethesda, the D&D based franchise easily became one of the best Western RPGs in existence. We go through some lore, game mechanics, and how it has built a name that sticks out among the crowd. Not only has The Elder Scrolls franchise made a name for themselves but they’ve made video games that are still played years after their release. Whether it’s a modded Morrowind on the PC or the 4th rerelease of Skyrim in VR, people are still playing games that this many years out would have been forgotten. But why tho?
