Morrowind
So I've just started playing Morrowind (with graphics overhaul), and it just doesn't seem as good as Oblivion or Skyrim. I am a huge fan of these games, and Morrowind is so praised it seems like a bit of a letdown. Maybe I just haven't gotten far enough yet?

That's cuz you're playing it wrong.

Watch the video and you'll know.

Re: Morrowind
Depends on what you value.

If you like the games for "combat" you aren't going to enjoy Morrowind as well. Atmosphere(settings vary more) and magical freedom is greater in Morrowind

One of the things I really don't like is how everyone has the same dialogue. People feel boring, hollow and unrealistic compared to Skyrim and Oblivion.

The environments I would have to agree are really good.

That is programing limitations, remember this game was designed a rather long time ago (was on the original X-box) Oblivion was a major upgrade to AI scripts.

RE: Morrowind
Morrowind is great because when you get your hands on enchanting is also when everything is obliterated by giant magical explosions and you get iron daggers that can wipe out cities. Also there's a lot quality mods. Go crazy with those.

RE: Morrowind
Morrowind might be my favorite game of all time.

Like ClydeLee pointed out, the combat system leaves a lot to be desired, but I loved the story. I have to admit, I even get a little choked up when I here the theme song too.
