So I've got a whole bunch of questions for you to answer
1: Does the game feel playable? Controls are fine? No awkwardness in those?
2: Does the game support widescreen resolutions? If so, is it hor+ or vert-?
3: The steam version okay? (For everything.) Any downsides?
4: Do you guys recommend that I mod it or should I just play it vanilla?
5: Does it work with win7 x64?
Thanks for all the help (if I'll receive any )
1. You are extremely slow when your character is new. Unbearably so (it looks like you move in slow-mo). The only solution is to either get the Boots of Blinding Speed asap, or to make a character with high speed (which is a waste). Fighting is also frustrating for new players because swinging your sword at an enemy doesn't mean you hurt him, you need good agility/level/skill to hit your opponent.
2. Looked fine in widescreen last time I played it.
3. The only 'downside' to Steam is that you may need to do an additional step when modding the game (use a modding tool to modify the 'date' of the main files, so that mod files are 'newer' and take effect).
4. Play it vanilla gameplay wise (maybe add in mods as you see fit, some people can't bear the huge amount of cliff racers in the game, or the slowness) but add graphical mods (that don't change the original look of the game too much) like the Morrowind Graphics extender.
5. Works fine.
Most people who played Morrowind find it a superior gaming experience to Oblivion.
If you ever wondered what a journey through a truly foreign land was like, this is the game.
