    The problem is that Daggerfall has huge number of area. To make it really a Daggerfall in Skyrim game they would need to make all those dungeons~

    The things that make Daggerfall cool:
    - complex character creation with dozens of skills, as well as advantages and disadvantages such as darkness-powered magery, spell absorption, magic immunity etc
    - detailed dressup with over a dozen equipment slots, different individual armor pieces, and clothes to make yourself look fresh
    - hundreds of huge dungeons you can get lost in because of how massive they are (even though they get a bit repetitive after a while as they're all constructed from the same building blocks)

    The things the Skyrim engine doesn't have:
    - complex character creation with dozens of skills, as well as advantages and disadvantages such as darkness-powered magery, spell absorption, magic immunity etc
    - detailed dressup with over a dozen equipment slots, different individual armor pieces, and clothes to make yourself look fresh

    Something the Skyrim port of Daggerfall likely doesn't have, either:
    - hundreds of huge dungeons you can get lost in because of how massive they are (even though they get a bit repetitive after a while as they're all constructed from the same building blocks)

    So, what reason is there to play this over Daggerfall Unity?

    Daggerfall too hard for Skyrim babies.

    Overall though? Doesn't have reason to exist other than some fluff. For people who want a CINEMATIC STORY and AESTHETICS of Daggerfall experience but don't want to play an actual dungeon crawler RPG.

    You cant fix Skyrim, even if you turn it into a different game.

    Supposedly Enderal fixes Skyrim by turning it into a different game.

    Dunno whether it's a good or bad thing. On one hand it could really freshen up the experience, on the other it might just highlight how shit it really was.

    I was a Skyrim baby and Daggerfall is tied for first place in the series for me.
    I mean, kinda. It’s definitely a better game with more difficult combat and more rewarding exploration, better graphics and animation, an experience based leveling system that doesn’t feel tacked on, and which adds new abilities for you to use in combat instead of just % boost to damage, but at its core it has the same basic engine and mechanics. So while I enjoyed the everloving fuck out of it, YMMV. It’s free so I’d recommend that anyone who likes ARPGs to check it out over this crap.

    As for the main topic, because of DFUnity there’s no reason for this garbage to exist, go away.

    I tried Enderal. For about an hour. It's still fucking Skyrim.
