Today's Free Game - The Elder Scrolls: Daggerfall

Also available for : PC

<b>The Game: </b> The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall<br/><br/><b>Genre: </b> Stupidly Large Open-World RPG<br/><br/><b>Platform: </b> PC<br/><br/><img src="http://pcmedia.ign.com/pc/image/article/121/1219486/dagginline_1330301294.jpg" /><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><b>The Scoop: </b> Bethesda's second Elder Scrolls title has the largest video game world in history. It contains over 188,000 miles of territory, and would take players over two real-world weeks to walk from one end to the other. <br/><br/>So, you know&#x2026; it's pretty big.<br/><br/>But is it fun? Ah, there's the rub. Like The Elder Scrolls: Arena, which this column <a target="_blank" href="http://pc.ign.com/articles/121/1218052p1.html" target="_blank">spotlighted previously</a>, Daggerfall is very dated by today's standards. And the huge world, while impressive on paper, doesn't really work in the game's favor. It means potentially tromping through hundreds of identical towns and dungeons. But still, <a target="_blank" href="http://www.google.com/#hl=en&safe=off&biw=1365&bih=858&sclient=psy-ab&q=daggerxl&fp=a556c3e5abbfdb1b" target="_blank">various groups</a> have put a lot of work into modernizing Daggerfall, and like Arena, as a free download it's a great opportunity for gamers to experience an important piece of video game history.<br/><br/><center><b><a target="_blank" href="http://www.fileplanet.com/202291/200000/fileinfo/Elder-Scrolls-II:-Daggerfall-(Full-Game)" target="_blank">Download Daggerfall Direct from Fileplanet!</a></b></center><br/><br/><iframe src="https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/embeddedform?formkey=dDUyenV0aGJwVnVHazI0TG5jdm14QXc6MQ" width="460" height="320" frameborder="0" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0">Loading...</iframe><br/><br/><i>Free Game of the Day is a column that spotlights a new 100%-free game, every day.
