I actually picked it up not too long ago for a little bit. I was in one of those phases when I was wanting to try all of my old games and see if they were worth saving and holding on to. Of course I did not get through all of them, that would take some time, but I did come across this one. It was cool for a little bit, and then I realized how old it was.
I saw Oblivion and Morrowind on sale about 2 months ago and decided to buy them and see for myself why people say they are so good. I instantly fell in love with Morrowind and made 80 hours in a month. Great game, I'll definitely play it again once I get through Oblivion.
I have Morrowind. I started playing a few times, and the atmosphere is amazing. Definitely a game I'd recommend all TES fans, but because it is so 'different' to what I am used to it always feels like quite the task to play it. I guess that is why I keep restarting and never actually finished the game.
Played Morrowind earlier today. I'm not picky with graphics at all (it could be 8-bit for all I care) so that's not a problem. The controls punched me in the gut though. And there are still quest bugs that were never fixed. I also see spelling errors from time to time (my favorite being "You are an fool"). But those minor things are squashed by the beautiful atmosphere, music, and lore. Praise Julianos, the lore! An overall fantastic game, though I wouldn't recommend it to newcomers due to its mechanical difficulties.
I looove Morrowind. The world and the writing are beyond compare in the entire Elder Scrolls series as far as I'm concerned. Having said that, I tried to boot it up a couple of months ago, and I just... I couldn't do it.
I'm not fussed about graphics at all - I collect retro games, and play them a lot! - but the controls are just, wow. Unlike Syl, I just couldn't get past that initial punch in the gut.
I'd kill to have a decent computer so I could use that mod that puts Morrowind into the Oblivion engine, as that would be perfect. As it is, my laptop can barely run Morrowind vanilla, so no such luck.
I really enjoy playing Morrowind. I only bought it last year, I think, but is one of my favorite games. My first Elder Scrolls game was Skyrim, and then I played Oblivion and Online. But now that I've played ALL OF THEM (except the Travels games) I really enjoy them all, especially Morrowind( and Oblivion and Skyrim and Daggerfall and-) I even enjoy it's combat, personally. Although it is annoying to shoot at the incoming Cliff Racer, only for the arrow to fly right through it and cause no damage. I really like going to Solstheim in both Skyrim and Morrowind to see how things have changed.
I return to it every now and then. It was the first open world fantasy game that really "got to me" and the nostalgia value of it is immense. Every time I hear the first notes of the Morrowind soundtrack I get chills.
Yes!! I found it when I was moving, and I opened it up and the paper map was still in the case. I had a wave of memories and so much nostalgia. Then I remembered this one spot where a guy falls from the sky in the woods. I wish the graphics were better though...
