What was your first TES?
I have since played Oblivion, but found it less fun. After spending some time here, I've decided to find a copy of Morrowind early next year, though.

I've genuinely played Morrowind more than Skyrim since getting Skyrim.
It's just... something about Morrowind was so much better. You weren't Saviourman, born to be a saviour, killing tons of men fresh out of prison, you were normalman, and if you didn't give that highwayman some gold, he would murder you. You could become Saviourman, but through training, and making a name for yourself.
Dialogue, the lack of VA meant quests could have so much more dialogue, I prefered it like this, though I'd still like Voice Acting for main dialogue. (I usually read the subtitles and skip anyways)
Factionwise, choosing a house was so much better. They built you a Stronghold, fit for a lord. You could drink the Bittercup if you so choose, but had to deal with the consequences.
And the world was so much better.It wasn't Dragons and Zombies, with normal wildlife, it was Gigantic Jellyfish, Two Legged Crocodiles and... mouths, weird mutated freaks, Half Octopus Dreugh and giant mushrooms, Ogrim, Winged Twilight, Hunger, Kwama, Scrib. Vivec guards weren't generic medieval guards, they were slightly weird Golden Masked lawkeepers. And dressing up like one was not advised.
Also, spellmaking and Better Enchanting. Yes you could use these to break the game, but it aint like Skyrim has any balance, so why not? I can cast a spell to Summon 8 Different Daedra if I want, and that is awesome.
But there's still tomorrow Forget the sorrow And I can be on the Last Train Home

Skyrim was my first. But I've went back and played the other games.

You forgot to add the beauty of Morag Tong. And spellmaking and enchanting was actualy more balanced then in later games. With high effect came high costs. I still remember spending half an hour making my first spell or enchantment. The awakening by Clif racer. The facts that quests were much better and had more plot begind them. I would add flying but it's unfair to mention it as Skyrim has that cell thingy. Range of weapons. And what I miss most importantly and I sure know that every single Morrowind player misses is the ability to kill everyone and main quest be damned. I heard you could awake after night of being a werebear and find out you actualy ate someone important. Heck the transformation message was hell of the fun. And What of all the vampire clan quests. I kinda wish that instead of making TES6 they would remake Morrowind with new leveling system from Skyrim and better graphics. $0£ be damned, the game would still be worth it.
Probably would've been Morrowind if I'd ever gotten an Xbox. I was too young back then to get a job, so my gaming was funded by Christmas and birthdays. Unfortunately, I already had a PS2, so everybody figured I didn't need an Xbox as well. Was stuck with that damn PS2 for seven years. Finally got an Xbox 360 for Christmas a couple years into the next gen, with Fallout 3 as my first game. Fell in love, looked for similar games and found Oblivion. Was one of the funnest damn games I'd ever played.

Oblivion. Well I did play Morrowind for a short time at a friends once but didn't get it my self/play it in depth untill after I rofl stomed and loved Oblivion which I still play on occasion.
I've played all but Battlespire and the ES travels...though Arena I did only play once so if that counts or not is in the eye of the beholder. Most of my time with the series is split between Morrowind, Oblivion and Skyrim.

Morrowind, but I was clueless and just screwed around a bit.

Played the hell out of Oblivion on 360. When I saw trailers for it on the marketplace back around the 360's launch, I eagerly awaited it as I knew nothing about the series and was dumbfounded that games had progressed this much to allow free-roam in first-person in a medieval-type setting (I was about 14 or 15 at the time and never saw anything like that done before). So I rented it then immediately went out and bought it. Bought every DLC it released afterwards, too.
Found a copy of Morrowind for Xbox, played it a bit on 360 but was spoiled by Oblivion so I eventually got bored trying to immerse myself in all the text and choppy animations. My mood swayed in and out of being interested in it, I eventually lost the disc in the midst of trying to move. I own it now on PC but would probably need mods to make it enjoyable. It just feels too ancient. Beautiful atmosphere and soundtrack, though.
Bought Skyrim day one; no-brainer, or so I thought. Ended up not enjoying it as much as I'd hoped. But the DLC has been pretty good thus far so I'm sticking with it. *Really, we need more outlandish and grotesque creatures like we see in Dragonborn (I haven't finished it yet, but those creatures that were assisting the 'first dragonborn' look seriously cool). This is a fantasy game after all and I kind of grow tired of fighting bandits and draumbies.
Anyway that's my order of ES games played: Oblivion -> Morrowind -> Skyrim.
