My only experience with playing an Elder Scrolls game is Daggerfall, and if the mmo can't replicate the experience of killing someone in the street and then running into a shop, so that guards will follow me in single file, shouting "Halt! Halt halt!" the entire time, so that in turn I can kill each of them and stack them like kindling...
Well, I just don't want any part of it, then.
(Note: I've watched my daughter play Skyrim. I know they've gotten a lot better.
