    First two Elder Scrolls for Free

    Despite being a company that tends to release games with too many bugs for my taste, Bethesda is in my opinion still one of the most impressive gaming companies out there. One of my favorites. Mostly because of their ability to create outstanding worlds and give us full reign (well, almost) over them.

    These fine folks are now giving us for free the first two games that started it all.
    The Elder Scrolls
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    Agreed. However, you forgot to mention what I consider to be their most redeeming quality. One of the most complete add-on and modification tools offered by any major game producer. They design all of their modern games to allow an almost infinitely extensible amount of content and they give you the tools to do it for free. Their modding community is one of the largest around and it's easy to see why.
