Reorganization[edit]

I've just done a few bits of reorganization that may seem completely illogical, so I figured I'd explain what my motivations were.

Layout of Page: The order of the boxes does seem a bit haphazard, and probably could do with some more tweaking. My basic thought was to put the most used links near the top of the page. So Oblivion and Morrowind were the logical choices for the top two boxes. I then wanted to put Elder Scrolls Travels under Oblivion, since it includes the other most recently released titles. Admittedly, the pages (other than Shadowkey) contain no info right now, but I think that may just be because nobody knows they even exist. And given the apparent interest in Oblivion for PSP perhaps the Oblivion Mobile section will start to get some attention.

Move to Main Namespace: With the couple links added to the bottom (for Tamriel and General) this page is really an overall site index. So it seems that it belongs near the top of the hierarchy, not buried in the General namespace. I considered whether the name of the page should also be something like "Site Index" or "Directory". But the links to this page are most likely to call it "All Games", since I think that will be the most useful way to describe it to readers.

Moving Mobile Games to Main Namespace: OK, not directly related to this page, other than that the links were changed. But I thought I'd cover that here, too. As Wrye mentioned a few weeks back (as part of the Shadowkey namespace discussion), these pages probably are just stubs until someone gets interested, at which point they'll have their own namespace. Also, when creating General:Main Page I realized that they didn't really fit in there, given that General is a section about non-game info. So I thought I'd try moving them and see what people think.

Release Dates: I would like to see the year each game was released on this page.--216.101.11.66 18:47, 20 September 2007 (EDT)

That information is already documented at other articles that focus more on the history of the Elder Scrolls games, such as General:Bethesda and General:Elder Scrolls. The purpose of this page is primarily to help readers navigate the site, rather than to provide details about the individual games. --NepheleTalk 21:17, 20 September 2007 (EDT)

All the expansions.[edit]

table edit[edit]

Main Series
Portable Series
Apocrypha
This looks like an improvement to me... --GKTalk2me 20:10, 18 June 2009 (EDT)

Piracy Section[edit]

We should put a piracy section for people who want to discuss pirate games and state their dislike for them.ModderElGrande 16:18, 7 January 2010 (UTC)

Forums exist for that and you can discuss it there. UESP will never authorise content or pages that deal with illegal activities. --SerCenKing Talk 16:22, 7 January 2010 (UTC)

Mobile Games[edit]

Where/how can you buy the mobile games? Specifically Stormhold and Dawnstar? -DevotedInsanity 01:06, 9 April 2010 (UTC)

Try these links: Stormhold, Dawnstar
I don't know for sure, but I'm assuming the procedure to purchase and download the games would depend on the carrier. --GKtalk2me 03:21, 9 April 2010 (UTC)


Eldar Scrolls V: Skyrim[edit]

Eldar Scrolls V: Syrim... it's not out yet, but I think deserves the skeleton on a section which can be filled in as more information is released.67.42.201.91 18:29, 15 December 2010 (UTC)

Skyrim[edit]

Uhh guys? The section Skyrim is only appearing on certain pages. — Unsigned comment by 76.22.253.208 (talk) on 14 January 2011

Where are they not appearing? Alpha Kenny Buddy 02:52, 14 January 2011 (UTC)
The page is probably cached. Create an account and you'll see the link everywhere. rpeh •TCE 13:26, 14 January 2011 (UTC)
I don't know where it isn't appearing. Just randomly on different pages (Like say, Oblivion:Oblivion) the section is unavailable. Also I don't think that's very nice to newcomers if they have to make an account just to access Skyrim. — Unsigned comment by 76.22.253.208 (talk) on 14 January 2011
It's not our fault, that's how wikis work. You can try purging the page yourself. --Rigas Papadopoulos • TalkDeeds 18:25, 14 January 2011 (UTC)
The caching is to reduce bandwidth. If you can't be bothered to create an account, I don't see why UESP should pay to serve you. Stop whining and either create an account or purge the page. rpeh •TCE 03:04, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

Video's[edit]

I'm not sure if this has been brought up yet but maybe there should a videos section for gameplay showing like walkthroughs and stuff???? — Unsigned comment by Blunt axe (talkcontribs) at 05:24 on 21 October 2011 (GMT)

Plug-in[edit]

Should the "plug-ins" be changed to "add-ons" here too? like the General:Elder Scrolls page?--Honeystars (talk) 10:48, 16 October 2013 (GMT)

The related discussion regarding the change in wording was about the page name in particular, for the purpose of consistency in the sidebar. I've updated the links to reflect this, but only changed the link label and wording for Skyrim since there was no consensus in the related discussion to change all instances of the previous wording to the newer wording. — ABCface 13:35, 16 October 2013 (GMT)
Hey, sry to bother you again. you said the discussion was for the sidebar. then why are the links at General:Elder Scrolls also changed? should they be changed back? ~ Honeystars (talk) 07:48, 17 October 2013 (GMT)
Someone went through and changed dozens of pages and most had already been changed back. Apparently that one was missed. — ABCface 14:27, 17 October 2013 (GMT)

ESO[edit]

Why does ESO have it's own section of table and isn't under the "spin-offs" section? DontforgetThis (talk)

Because it is not a spinoff. Silence is GoldenBreak the Silence 23:30, 8 January 2014 (GMT)
It's just a game set in the same universe made by different developers that isn't a part of the main line? I'm not saying it isn't cannon or whatever, I'm just asking how it is any different from Redguard or Battlespire. DontforgetThis (talk) 03:37, 13 January 2014 (GMT)
It's different because the developers said it's different. And, I think that the fact that it's an MMO, rather than a single-player game puts it on its own unique status away from those older games anyway. -damon  xoxo 04:05, 13 January 2014 (GMT)
Actually, Redguard and Battlespire were made by the exact same people as the rest of the games, developed and published by Bethesda Softworks. It's not a spinoff as much as a continuation. It has the same play style and mechanics as the other games, whereas Redguard and Battlespire were completely different styles of games from the main series. Jeancey (talk) 07:13, 13 January 2014 (GMT)
I'm not so sure how accurate that is. Battlespire is very similar as far as gameplay goes. The best argument would be the different series names, "An Elder Scrolls Legend" and "The Elder Scrolls Adventures", but now we have Legends using the main series name and it is most definitely a spin-off. Where to the developers 'say' that ESO isn't a spin-off? An MMO spin-off, sure, but not really deserving of its own little redundant table here. In fact, if you consider Tamriel Unlimited, "The Elder Scrolls Online" sounds an awful lot like a series name to me. —Legoless (talk) 14:51, 15 June 2015 (UTC)

Elder scrolls VI?[edit]

Does any one know if or when they will make elder scrolls IV? If they are gonna make one, where is it gonna be? — Unsigned comment by Ulfgar The Unending (talkcontribs) at 20:53 on 3 December 2016 (UTC)

Not for many years. They aren't even working on it, according to Pete Hines. —Legoless (talk) 20:59, 3 December 2016 (UTC)
That's depressing thanks anyways though. — Unsigned comment by Ulfgar The Unending (talkcontribs) at 21:28 on 3 December 2016 (UTC)
