Need a refresher on where things left off with The Knife of Dunwall? Read an early journal from The Brigmore Witches: Thomas’ Journal.
Warning: Knife of Dunwall spoilers below…
Our troubles began with a name. Delilah. A mystery given to Daud by the face he sees in his dreams and whose voice he hears when kneeling at the shrines hidden in the lost parts of the city. None of us have ever heard this voice, but we know its power. It spoke to our master, telling him of his coming doom and saying that solving this riddle was the only way to escape.
We knew nothing of Delilah, except that we found a whaling ship by that name. A tenuous connection, but where the Outsider’s word is concerned there are no coincidences. We discovered the ship was named after a woman who once walked the halls of Dunwall Tower with Jessamine Kaldwin. Later she became a painter – an apprentice of Sokolov himself – until she snared an aristocratic patron named Arnold Timsh.

This morning I received the newest issue of PC Gamer. Across the cover it reads “The 100 Greatest PC Game of All Time”, and immediately I thumbed through the issue to see where my favorite games made the list. Or in some cases, rechecking the list to see why a certain game didn’t make the list.
Lists like these are always fun to go through and debate with friends/colleagues where they nailed it and where you disagree. Sharing lists like these has always been fun to share on the blog, too. Yes, we know, Morrowind should be higher.
That brings us to the roll call of games in the Bethesda family that made the list, including The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim ranking #1! Amongst PC Gamer’s Top 100, these games were selected by the magazine’s editors:
- Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth — #98
- The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind — #93
- The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion — # 73
- QUAKE — #72
- Fallout 3 — #63
- QUAKE III — #44
- DOOM — #43
- Return to Castle Wolfenstein — #42
- Dishonored — #40
- The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim — #1
Look for the Top 100 PC Games issue on newsstands or in your mailbox… and let the debates begin!
