newbreview.com's Gareth Lloyd tells you why you should all play The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind.
To be honest, it was Morrowind which got people excited for Oblivion, as it did for Skyrim. So not as underrated as you think Kieran ;P
Underrated? NO. Underplayed? YES. If they made a HD remake of this game it will sellout in seconds. theres nothing like riding giant fleas from one place to another :)
not even gonna read the article, im just gonna state for the record "BEST GAME EVER" imo....haven't played anything yet that has come close to it, the freedom was unlike any other open world game....oblivion didnt come close either although it was/is one of my fav games still.....Skyrim.....cannot wait!!!!!!!!!
Morrowind is still my favorite Elder Scrolls game to this day. I still consider Arena, Daggerfall, and Oblivion among my top picks for must play games, but Morrowind is the best out of the series so far. The story, gameplay, and pure scope of the game is just amazing.
Under rated!? It won game of the year and is considered the pinnacle of the franchise. Will games journalists stop clamouring for complete and utter shit to talk about. I'm tired of hearing that pc gaming is dying, there are too many first person shooters, what went wrong with duke nukem, why people need to play game X, how piracy is good/bad, why used sales are good/bad, what gta V needs, why gta IV looks incredible with this mod, what games look better than crysis 2, why fan boys need to stfu (they won't and your just adding to the god damn noise pollution by whining about it), top ten lists, why game movies fail, why movie games fail, where the hell is half life 3 (I'm guilty of this though), why games count as art, game X vs game Y either graphically or gameplay, battlefield 3 vs mw3 (needs it's own one), and reviews for games that are 8 fucking months late and the same as every other score, and why games are sexist. We've all read about 8 billion god damn articles that all talk about the above and all you're doing is wasting precious time when you're talking sense, and looking like a prick when you're saying games like morrow wind are under rated.
I don't know if Morrowind is the best RPG ever made. But I do know it is the best game (RPG or not) that I have ever played. I can't begin to tell you what a let down oblivion was. There have been many attemps to try and match that game. None have even come close. That game is the standard for how an open ended RPG should be approached.
Exactly, it's like they just streamlined the crap out of their own world, added a nicer looking combat system and said "it's finished!". "But wait what about the plot?" "Oh...just add in some cliched drivel about a prince and destruction and shit..." "And the graphics?" "Yeah...just make it look like Middle Earth" "OK!!!"
