daggerfall

Bethesda have today released the second of the Elder Scrolls series as a free download to all. The game, as with all of the Elder Scrolls series, is set in a huge fantasy land, with the two provinces in Daggerfall being Hammerfell and High Rock, the homes of the Redguards and Bretons. Old games becoming free is always good news; it reminds me of Project Gutenberg- a free collection of books no longer covered by copyright laws.

There is, of course, bad news too. The game only runs under DOS, so there’s a complicated method of getting the game running on more modern operating systems. Luckily, Shacknews have put together a nice guide which can be found here to help you along. Good luck!
