"According to [Howard], "bits of code" that were used in Morrowind still appear in Bethesda games today."

This man thinks we never noticed that The Elder Scrolls and Fallout games mostly run on really old engines :o

In fact, animation being a huge factor for me in games, I almost avoided Skyrim altogether because of it's old ass IK style animation. I learned to look past that and enjoy their games for their strengths and not begrudge myself a good time for their weaknesses, but seriously Bethesda, Howard, we know.

They are still the best in the industry at what they do. They worlds are immersive and can hold your attention for a very, very long time. I never felt like I spent too much for any of their games.

True this. Fallout 3 is my most-played single player game, and it's not because of the graphics.

I still remembering buying TES:3 back in the late 90s and being blown away. There was just so much to do in that game. It was insane.

TES 3: Morrowind came out in 2002.

Maybe Daggerfall not Morrowind or you've done some time travelling.

JsonHenry2502d ago

Daggerfall, yes. Not Morrowind. (I meant to hit 2, I swear!!)

No wonder Morrowind saved them. Its without doubt the best game they ever made. I still play Morrowind way more than Skyrim. I would give anything to play Morrowind HD remaster but there again there is Skywind.

Started with Morrowind and still say it is the best. The later titles in the series never lived up to it for me.

After Daggerfall, they released some very buggy games that weren't all that good. The Elder Scrolls Battlespire was really glitchy and the Elder Scrolls Redguard was a lot different than anything in the series, more linear, more action oriented.

Morrowind was what saved the company.
