      I'm tempted to replay this, but I'm afraid I'll find out it's just as boring/repetitive as Skyrim/Oblivion and that I'm usually wearing my rose-tinted nostalgia goggles when I think about how awesome Morrowind was in comparison.

        If you thought Skyrim was repetitive and boring you probably just dont like this sort of game.

          No, Morrowind is a lot less boring than Skyrim. Skyrim is truly just a boring, dull game that doesn't deserve to be considered an RPG.

            Well seriously i thought it was miles better than Oblivion, but of course Morrowind is the best of the three.

              I've played all recently, all 3 are the best in different ways.

            Well, I have to disagree with you there. I think Skyrim is an exceptional game, and an exceptional RPG.

          No way, Skyrim is way more boring to me because of all the randomly generated content and the cheezy "easy exit" dungeons. The latter breaks immersion big time, and the former is no where near intricate or detailed enough.

          The custom quests are good, as usual. I wish the game only had the hand designed content though.

            The only "randomly generated" content are the "Go kill this bandit leader" or "Go kill this dragon" type quests, all the dungeons and other quests are hand made.

            While yes, there's nothing much to the random quests, it's a good way to provide a means for continuing to play after you finish everything pre-written/designed.

      This is bad... this makes me want to install this game and play through it. I don't even think I got half way through the game the first time. The last thing I need is another soul sucking RPG. Not that I don't love them, it's just that I already have at least 3 I'm already in the middle of.

      Graphic update mods need to include before shots in their trailers, because what I just watched is how I actually remember Morrowind looked to start with. Obviously that's not the case and this probably looks way better than the original, but unfortunately that's the way the mind works. You don't realize how bad old games looked until you're actually reminded.

      Well first I will wait for skyrim game of year edition, play that, and all it's dlc, then think about worrying about morrowind. Just too many damn awesome games out.

        Yes. The automated installer makes what would otherwise be a really complex process really simple, too. Be sure to extract the files from the download into your Morrowind directory.
