It may have gone a little under the radar for some of us but Bethesda have seen fit to bundle up every Elder Scrolls game into one pretty meaty package.

The Elder Scrolls: Anthology boasts the five original titles from Arena through to Skyrim, as well as all of the released DLC and expansions...

Everyone loves maps and this bundle comes with five of them, allowing you to pore over the minute details of Tamriel, Iliac Bay, Morrowind, Cyrodiil and Skyrim.

The full bundle includes:

The Elder Scrolls Arena
The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall
The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind Game of the Year
- Tribunal
- Bloodmoon
The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Game of the Year
- Knights of the Nine
- Shivering Isles
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Legendary Edition
- Dawnguard
- Hearthfire
- Dragonborn

The Elder Scrolls: Anthology is currently retailing for $80/£50, which is quite a lot of bang for your buck considering the number of hours you can potentially get out of this. We’re no mathematicians here at Game-Debate, but we can easily see this consuming over 500 hours of your life. You may boot it up looking young and sprightly, but you’ll come out looking like Gandalf.

For those of you crazy enough not already own a number of these titles, this looks like a cracking deal, and there’s no better place in Cyrodiil to prepare yourself for The Elder Scrolls Online.

Not really:
Skyrim Legendary Edition: $59.99
Oblivion GOTY: $19.99
Morrowind GOTY: $29.99
Arena: $60.99 opened
Daggerfall: $199.99
Separately: $370.95 plus applicable Shipping
Thie Elder Scrolls Anthology: $79.99
according to Amazon, which I find the cheapest place to buy stuff, I don't think buying them separately is cheaper buddy, unless you buy used, which, this collection is new, plus the maps,

point taken, but still, just Skyrim, Oblivion, and Morrowind cost more than the cost of the anthology :)

yeah, whereas I only own Skyrim on PS3 (Collector's Edition &#603), and then just the base game, no DLCs, so someone like me, it would pay to buy the collection.

Yeah its a great game and if you have a powerfull pc you can add like 100 visual and gameplay mods! I have 450hours on skyrim and 300hours on oblivion so it is worth it (if you have the money in the first place ) ;)

don't flame me for this, but I haven't played any ES games, only skyrim, and I found skyrim to be the most boring game I've played yet, I can't find myself being immersed, it's just so boring, I went throuhg like an hour, and uninstalled.

okay I'll try another explanation:
Skeletons are set of reanimated bones of the dead
Draugr are an ancient Nordic warriors who have been reanimated; used to be followers of dragon priests, when these priests died, their followers were killed, reanimated, and then sealed into tombs where they would periodically awake to worship the priests and transfer energy to them to maintain their undead state; some of draugr may guard nobility and treasures instead and wake when disturbed

500 hours? If you play every game in it almost completely I wouldn't be surprised if it was closer to a 1000 ^^
