The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall pick
Software Product Description
This classic 3D RPG is now released as freeware.Bethesda Softworks is celebrating the 15th anniversary of The Elder Scrolls series. In doing so, the company has released full version of The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall as freeware.
The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall is the successor of The Elder Scrolls: Arena. Daggerfall initially was developed using an updated Arena raycast engine similar to Doom´s, where the world is really 2D and drawn to look 3D. We then decided to begin development of one of the very first true 3D engines in computer games -- the XnGine. This engine provided unparalleled 3D visuals and would go on to power other titles such as The Terminator: Future Shock, SkyNET, X-Car, Battlespire, and Redguard.
Daggerfall featured one of the first true 3D worlds on a massive scale, with a game world the size of Great Britain. The game had twice as many features as Arena, a deeper role-playing system, and helped usher in an RPG renaissance in 1996.
Note from FreewareFiles.com: To run this game on newer systems, you will need to download an emulation program like DOSBox.

Pros: Despite the bugs and the flawed/limited dialogue system, this game shines for 2 reasons - an immersive, sprawling plot, and GIANT labrynthine dungeons the likes of which have never been seen before or since.
Cons: Bugs. Dialogue.
Other Thoughts: None
