I don't think I could ever stop playing Morrowind, ten years after release and I still love it as much as I did almost a decade ago. I even bought a sealed copy of the game just to keep as a symbol of my childhood. :)

Since you enjoy Morrowind so much, could you recommend me some more mods. Nothing like Better Bodies or a graphics enhancer though, since I probably can't run those with my measly laptop.

Actually, this may not be a surprise, but in the fallout games(Fallout 3 and New Vegas, both made by Bethesda), skills have a big part in accuracy too. I mean, I still miss while aiming down my sites with a guns weapon, and my guns is 100. I used to miss all the time. Now, that being said, the Fallout Games are still focused mainly on the base accuracy of the gun, how you use them, ect.

The skills till have a big part to play, though.
I've played and enjoyed both of those, and you're both right and wrong.

In those games, more accuracy means that your bullets stray less far from the crosshairs.  If you're close enough, your bullets are guaranteed to hit just because that accuracy "margin of error" doesn't exceed a certain distance from the crosshairs.  In Morrowind, it's a numbers game.  You could be aiming spot on, but if your stats aren't high enough: "Miss!"

I hope that made sense.

O.o HOW?! How do you put up with that?
In Oblivion it was boring to walk everywhere because the terrain was pretty bland, but it also wasn't so bad because you could walk in a straight line from pretty much anywhere to anywhere.

In Skyrim, I do it because I love it.  I have seen so much more of Skyrim just because I don't fast travel.  I enjoy memorizing the terrain and eventually abandoning a map altogether; it makes me feel more like a "local".  Not to mention it's absolutely gorgeous, and there are actually very few locations that don't have some kind of road or staircase leading up to them.

I also disable quest markers on my compass, but they appear on my map.  I'd disable them on the map as well, but some of the miscellaneous quests just say "Find X".  Even if I was told by someone where to find it, it doesn't record that in my journal.

I miss the Morrowind journal.  Felt like a real chronicle of my adventure.

(please ignore my other posts here, they weren't posted by me)

I like all of those ES games. It could be said I'm an expert on the lore, I research a lot and try to read all in-game books.

My favorite overall was Oblivion. Mostly because of the beatiful land, the lively world and the story. In terms of story, the best is Morrowind, and in gameplay, Skyrim. Arena and Daggerfall were fun too.

I'm sad my Morrowind disc doesn't work anymore. Oh well.

You liked the story in Oblivion? I thought it was dreadful.

Better than the pile of shit that was Skyrim's story. If it wasn't for a few good characters (Paarthurnax, etc), it would have been completely awful.

Plus, Oblivion's main story may have been "meh" but the guild questlines were absolutely wonderful.

Not to mention Oblivion's main quest actually felt like a large event.

Oh, it made sense. I was just trying to explain in reference to other games by Bethesda, as accuracy is a big factor in their games(some, anyways).

I enjoyed every Elder Scroll's story so far (Mind you I haven't beaten Skyrim yet) and of course, I'd have to say Morrowind's story is my favorite.

I'm going to take a guess on why you haven't beaten the Skyrim story yet.

"Alright, I'm on my way to Whiterun to talk to the Jarl about the Dragon at Helgen."

*sees cave*

"Right after I clear this cave."

Come on people, this needs more posts! If this thread dies I'll be stuck with the lore-ignorant people from the Skyrim thread.

Okay, random TES story facts time: Some people are confused by what happened to Vivec, especially since he had CHIM. Well:

Vivec sure is a strange one, especially having mutated children with a certain Daedric Prince. (I can't remember which one though!)

It was Molag Bal. Ugh, it's disgusting to think of it... and later they even had an orgy with a bunch of other Daedra. Hooray.

Personally, I think Vivec is awesome. Not only he achieved CHIM (more info here), but he also left the instructions on how to do it. In my opinion, best guy in the Tribunal.

I actually had to sit down one night and force myself to finish the main story, because I knew I would never do it otherwise.

@Homem, I. Love. Vivec.  I haven't actually finished Morrowind (see the above as to why), but I've done a lot of reading, and Vivec is probably one of my favorite characters in any game/series.

Also, I know lore, and I pop into the Skyrim thread :(.  I think they should just lock the Skyrim Megathread and have all Elder Scrolls talk happen here.  They're all pretty much one looonngg game anyway :P

In terms of content, I mean.  They fit together nicely.

Though, I guess if you're not at all interested in lore or timelines, they'd seem like very independent games.  I'm not sure how one could play the games and not become interested in lore, though.

Morrowind is my favorite, I love the graphics, and it goes so much more in-depth than oblivion or skyrim (not character customization-wise).

Plus the world's so alien.

The landscape has to be one of my favorite parts. Giant mushrooms, bug shells for houses. It was so unique looking.

Really does make you feel like an outsider.

I do like that Skyrim made me feel instantly at home, though.
