Is it a turn based RPG like WoW (When I think of turn based I think of Pokemon, just incase) or a real-time hack and slash with some strategy somewhere (Anyone heard of Titan quest, I'm not sure but the description is sorta like that)? If it does not match either description could someone describe the gameplay well enough, please? Any other good games that match it?

It's more like a real-time hack and slash. Except in first person. Now, are you sure that WOW is turn based? I'm pretty sure I saw real time fighting in some videos.

Maybe he considers clicking and using bind-keys turn-based as you might stop attacking (unless its auto attack after clicking once) in between when choosing attacks.

Yeah, I've only tried oblivion but if morrowwind is better as most people say, I'll bet its also real-time medieval. Like walking back and forth to dodge and avoid, shielding and using potions.

What I mean to ask is that is either (or any) of these mentioned games like one of those games where you choose a type of attack/move/spell and your character dishes it out or different in any way? Could you give an accurate description of the gameplay in elder scrolls series please because it is described as an RPG whereas there are many other RPGs like megaman which don't follow this gameplay style at all (other than battlenetwork/starforce series to some extent though I'm not sure because I don't know what any of these are defined as).

Think of it like an FPS with swords and spells instead of guns.

All right yeah that sounds better. Any other good games in the same genre? Which of the elder scroll series are actually good? You know this game sorta resembles a game I used to play that was made in the 1990s: Bad thing was there was no cap to how strong you could get and you could get every skill/power etc. if you followed a certain order so the game eventually became too easy.

Very old series called Might & Magic. (Not to be confused with Heroes of Might & Magic) The games were actually very good, though they might be dated by today's standards, the last time I played one was about nine or eight years ago. They had a rather similar gameplay mechanic if I recall correctly.

That's the only other series in this genre? This is one small genre. What are the good games in the elder scrolls series?

That I don't know. It's the only series in the genre that I played.

They're all considered to be pretty good for their respective eras. Morrowind (the third game) and Oblivion (the fourth and most recent) both won Game of the Year accolades for their gameplay and story. Morrowind being it the older game is probably better if you have an older system. Oblivion is visually prettier, but the mechanics remain roughly the same from the previous game.

If you tell us what you consider 'good' as well as what you're expecting, it would give us a better idea of what to tell you about the Elder Scrolls series. :)
