You'll also need a DOS emulator, something Bethesda kindly offers a link to, and a pair of rose-tinted glasses to play.

Interesting to that the second game in the massive series requires so little hardware horsepower—you'll need a 66 Mhz processor or better—and consumes so little space. I remember Daggerfall being massive, but its install size pales in comparison to the 1 gigabyte required for The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind and the 4.6 gigabytes needed for Oblivion.

The Download
I bought and played the original Elder Scrolls Arena game when it came out, and really liked it. I also purchased Daggerfall when it came out and had a lot of fun with it, especially the spell generator where you literally mixed and matched spell effects into your own custom batch spells and then named them. I had a blast naming my spells ... appropriately ... like "Angry Bastard" for a crippling round-based batch attach spell, and "Cant Touch This" for my batch spell of defensive tricks ... I think I had another one called "I Can See My House from Here" that was a batch levitation and other items spell. Good times
