Morrowind doesn't need an explanation: either you love it or you don't.
A few cool graphic mods seem to have been out for some time, now, making Morrowind more enjoyable than ever. Once I had my run in Oblivion about 4 years back, I somehow shied from playing Morrowind again. Yep, I'm that shallow
I'm at work and they block youtube but when I get back home I'll definitely check this.
Morrowind was one of (if not THE) most atmospheric games I've ever played. I used to wish that I could actually visit the place. I spent too many of my summer holidays walking around the ponds and bogs.
If they really have improved the graphics, then this game shall carry me into the next decade.
So I'm guessing this is a PC Update and not Xbox/360? I actually still play it here and there, The dungeon hunting is great in that game. The one thing I was a little dissapointed by was the equipment levels. There aren't enough of them and there isn't enough variety. At least in oblivion, when you get high level you can find some pretty stellar randomized magical items. Oh well both games still rock. 10 years ahead of thier time.
I agree. This game sapped hours a day out of my life, for years. The game just never got old. There was always a dungeon to take down. There was always a little extra athletic ability to be gained by jumping your way to the destination.
And then there were the glistening swords. Fuck. I must play this again.
haha I wondered if I was the only one who jumped everywhere. In fact everytime I made a new char I'd go to the sift rider ramps and just smash the key walking up the ramp and you'd rump around 50 times, then jump the entire distance down. You'd get about 10 skills points for the first fall. I'd do that shit for hours. I refuse to ever install that again, need to keep my gpa high.
Ha. To get my block skills up I used to leave my character standing there whilst I had lunch or dinner, and let him absorb hits from this shitty little pond crabs. All day long. By the end no one could touch me.
I think I gave myself repetitive strain injury by jumping from place to place and also by masturbating to the awesomeness of the game.
hahhaa genious about the crab thing. I'd often just change turn the tv on and just keep hitting the jump button. Once that was at a hundred you could jump from the highest point on the map to the lowest and not take damage, not to mention jump halfway across cities, made running from guards easy.
Anyone try these new graphic upgrades? I haven't played Morrowind since Oblivion came out, but I still miss it's atmosphere. I liked the Bloodmoon expansion as well. I might have to dust off the cd and get back to gaming. Offtopic, anyone hear anything about a new Elder Scrolls game coming out anytime in the near future?
