Morrowind is deffinately worth getting.I have played through it more then a dozen times in the past 11 yrs.,searched every location in the game about 5-6 times.Played as just about every race/class.I even bought my 1st X-Box just for this game 10 yrs. ago, because I could not afford a PC.Now, mind you ,this was back when the 1st X-Box cost $200.00+ dollars,refurbished...Just for THIS game.When I saw my brother playing it on the PC then,back in 2002,I said to him:"Damn,what game is that?" ,And he replyed:"Morrowind".then I said,"Do they have that on PS2 or X-Box?"Then he told me they did,and that next week I went and took my money and bought an X-Box along with Morrowind and that was a few weeks before I knew they were releasing the Tribunal and Blood Moon expansions.I hope that answers your question.If you do get the game and you have any questions about playing the game just ask me. Hope you get it,you will not regret it if you really love RPG's.

It depends, and here's why. I know many people who wouldn't enjoy this game simple because it isn't easy. There are no quest markers and it isn't voice acted (at least not really) the characters still do say some things to you but it's not fully dialogued. There are also some follower mechanics that I recall annoyed me. But the point is, you have to understand that in order to play this game you have to actually read the quests for directions and what to do next. If that simple fact puts you off then this isn't the game for you. If however you are okay with that, then you are in store for THE BEST elder scrolls game to date. Not to diss skyrim, but it lacks something that this one has. If you're ready to put some effort into a game that has consumed thousands, check it out. Morrowind is an incredible game.

I also want to add to my post some other features a newcomer to morrowind needs to know about. There is no fast travel. But keep in mind, this really really opens the game up. No longer are you handcuffed by the restriction of cells, and you are able to take advantage of the spells levitate and fortify speed. Bam now you can fly.
Ismelly[?!?] Jan 7, 2013 @ 11:17pm 
I can see that. This game is going to be very challenging to someone who's fresh out of Skyrim.(with all its markers,even for misc quests)
And another thing that might get some people at first, the combat.
Not every swing is a hit. You can kinda think of it as, everytime you swing to hit a monster, theres an imaginary set of dice that roll to see if your attack succeeds.
Obliteron Jan 7, 2013 @ 11:35pm 
Right so you just swing repeatedly to get as many chances in as you can, and the more you attack the same old system comes into play where you level up and get stronger. Only here's the best part, the monsters don't. The game isn't scaled. And likely you will appreciate gameplay that much more. Strong characters feel strong.

Some areas of the game "ARE" scaled,depending on where you are in the game.For instance you would not run off to Red Mtn. to face Dagoth Ur at 1st or 2nd lvl. now would you? Also,I do agree with Obliteron on thier 1st post.You don't get quest markers in this one.It forces you to think and learn the game through practical application,and there's no better teacher then that.However,I can see how you feel lost and the uncomfortable feeling of that coming in from playing Oblivion or Skyrim. It shows us how spoiled and pampered we can become.Even just in gaming.

I say YES, get it. Oblivion too if you don't already have it. Morrowind graphics are pretty bad since it's what, ten years old? But the modding community is still active and has released graphics & sound fixes and maybe a few thousand gameplay enhancements - from little stuff to major rewrites (there's even work being done to bring Morrowind into the Skyrim game engine (called Skywind) and Morrowind for the Oblivion engine (Morroblivion).

Major difference is that Morrowind does NOT hold your hand all through the game. Once you've started, you are open to go anywhere, do anything and ignore the quests as you choose. It does have the downside that you have to LISTEN to the NPCs when they give you quest information, as the automatic Journal entries are minimal (and infrequently even give the wrong directions). There are NO quest pointers on the map showing where you are supposed to go.

amazing game for those who are man enough

I'd say yes, but if you've already played one of the others try and get a graphics overhual mod before playing

Morrowind is definitely worth getting but I have a couple reservations about recommending it these days.

1. Dated game mechanics. Using magic, swinging a sword, blocking with a shield, even sneaking all feel very creaky in Morrowind after playing through Skyrim (and even Oblivion). T

2. Dated presentation/graphics. Graphics don't make a game but it's hard to immerse yourself in a game if it was made before your "era." Also, scripted events are nearly non-existent and many of the quests feel quite primitive compared to newer ES games.

With that said, I replayed Morrowind a few months ago and found myself getting sucked in again pretty quickly. You can join way more factions than the newer games. Strategy/preparation before starting an attack feels more critical. Exploration has a much higher risk/reward since Morrowind isn't auto-leveled.

I ended up quitting after about ten hours though. I got kinda bored with the quests and the amount of foot-travel you have to do in the game is pretty high. I'll probably play again at some point though.

I remember getting Morrowind around release. I don't remember where I ordered it, but I got it in the mail and it was amazing. Then I got a new graphics card so I could have the water that uses shaders instead of the flat water texture. The best part was that even though it was open world I was not completely lost as to what to do, Bethesda knows how to make an open world game that gives you a lot of options without making it impposible to figure out what you're supposed to be doing. The intro is nowhere near as exciting as Skryim's, or even Oblivions, but for the time it was pretty cool since it was the first true 3D TES game, so walking off that boat was mind blowing. Realizing that not only can you go anywhere, but you can actually figure out what things are supposed to be was pretty cool to.

The TES series is fairly unique in that most of the game logic is open for everybody to see and modify through the editor, so that's pretty cool too.

Actually, the game is freaking awesome. Yeah, it is much more difficult than Skyrim, but the game is better than any other. I am about to beat it for the 15th time, and I am still not bored of it. Btw, you can beat Dagoth Ur at level 1, world record for beating the game is 4 minutes 17 seconds or so. It COULD be a really fast game, but if you actually want to do the whole story line you'll have to be smart about it. The game has a lot more things to accomplish than the other games.

For instance,
Imperial Legion
Imperial Cult
Great Houses (You can only pick one, Telvanni, Redoran, Hlaalu.)
Mages Guild
Fighter's Guild
Morag Tong (Original Assassin's Guild, Dark Brotherhood broke off and betrayed them)
Theives Guild
Blades (You advance via main questline)

I didn't name them all, I don't know them off the top of my head.

These are all different factions you can join, and it isn't easy to advance, you have to level up skills that are preferred by that faction. You'll have adventured to most of the locations, by foot, but that adds a lot of game time, and you'll learn the land, and be able to go from place to place by memory. You'll get your very own stronghold (via Great Houses) and acquire many artifacts.

Some of the artifacts, Mace of Molag Bal, Chysamere, Skull-Crusher, Volendrung, Mehrunes' Razor, Boots of the Apostle, Fang Of Heyeknamett (not sure on spelling), many of which show up in many of the games.

Honestly, this is the best game in the series, and you can go further back for free.

Note: Daggerfall and Arena were released for free, but you'll have to work with DOSBox to make them work, an alternative, you can message me and I can give you DOSBox and an auto installer, then you can play them :P
