By the Gods, what a great thread! And I'm not being sarcastic either. I love TESII Daggerfall and TESIII Morrowind (TESIV Oblivion is a little fun even though it is dumbed down a lot). But TESV Skyrim is ******* retarded! I've been a fan of The Elder Scrolls games since 1995 and I can say that Bethesda is taking their franchise in a direction that I do not want to follow. They have abandoned the traditional RPG formula and are marketing to a new demographic of people and kids that want action/adventure and who play on consoles. (I'm a PC gamer)

I pre-ordered the PC Skyrim Collector's Edition and it is still sitting unopened in my living room. I've been playing it at my friend's house for the past couple weeks on his computer.
You are forced to join certain factions to complete the main quest! C'mon, where is the freedom in that?
When you join the college of Winterhold, you go from a nobody to the archmage.
I hate how they removed the attributes and a lot of skills. I loved the multitude of skills they had in Daggerfall. Morrowind had some interestingly new skills added. I forever hate the fact that they removed Mysticism. That is such a big part of lore for the Psijics of Artaeum.
I could rant all day about TESV Skyrim but I shall stop here.

No, I pre-ordered Skyrim to make up for not buying the collector's edition of Morrowind when it was available. Kind of a dumb reason but oh well.

Im actually just getting into morrowind again, and I wonder why this game was so "goldy". Maybe for it's time it was good, but everyone just stands around and doesn't do anything. Yeah the spells and skills are a little more varied. The only thing keeping the game going for me is the quests, and the storys behind the quests.
Just started the game again as a theif/mage so I can try the combat from as much angles as possible with just 1 character. Yes the game is large and there are quests to do and such, but I don't see it holding a candle to everything out now..?

The Modding community can still save this game IMO, but the sad truth is the Bethesda is never going to clean up its act, its products are selling way to well for them to think that there is a problem.

You should try a quest mod that I'm almost finished with. My quests are a little different. One of them is just dialogue based, no fetch this, bring it to me, kill that, stuff. I think that style is waaaay overdone in TES series. My quest has to do with a Hlaalu husband and wife who have some trust issues in their relationship, and you, the Player, have to decide who's side you're on (the husband, the wife, or neither) and either lie, tell the truth, or don't get involved and just leave. I love Morrowind for its open endedness and freedom (sucks that their games now are becoming more and more linear).
I'm also working on Pelagiad Expanded but it's so freakin big in scale and there is so much detail to add to it, that it will take a few years to complete. But I intend to let the Player be whoever they want and do whatever they want as best as possible. That includes allowing Player to be a butcher, baker, candlestick maker, mercer, cooper, stone cutter, rope maker, prostitute, tapestry maker, thief, historian, monk, knight, musician, poet.... well, here's a screenshot of the town of Pelagiad "expanded" thus far. Another great modder named Regaez designed all the exterior you see. I am in charge of interior design.

What is great about Morrowind is that the game did not force you into the main quest, but rather, you had to find the main quest on your own. Oblivion and Skyrim give you that "sense of urgency" like you need to get going and do this main quest now, or else all hell will break loose!

With Morrowind, you have to do a lot of reading and learning to discover you are the Neravarine to solve the main quest. And I'm sorry, but Dragonborn is just the corniest and cheesiest sounding name. Sounds like something a 5th grader would name his character. Dhovakhiin sounds like a spin-off of Morrowind.

Alrighty, gotta go to class now.

For those of you that are bored, try playing on the highest difficulty with different styles. Cleric is always fun for appreciating the support role.

What I love about TES games was almost killed for me in Skyrim when I got further into the game and started realizing it...exploring =\ . In Oblivion and Morrowind I loved to explore because the rewards were much greater...like when I found my first glass weapon in Oblivion at a low lever from exploring the northern part of the map. I ended up raging in Skyrim because I would take the time to break 30 some picks to open up a Master level chest that had three gold in it...***! That's when I stopped playing because I realized that outside the weaker quest lines, there was a lot to do...but I couldn't find the reasons to do it. I'm sorry Bethesda but if you're going to take the time to "handcraft" all of the dungeons, take the time to handcraft some useful **** in those chests to make exploring exciting and worth it again.
