This past weekend, during a three-day holiday, I managed to catch up greatly with my Morrowind game (on my Xbox). I love this Tolkeinesque universe they've created (Bethesda Software). The first game of theirs I picked up in this vein was Daggerfall, which was the first truly epic attempt at a 'big world' rpg with an open-ended storyline. I truly traipsed all over that wo with an open-ended stort time. It was replete with great characters, phenomenal music and surprisingly successful at allowing me to do things no one saw done in rpg's before, for example buying houses and ships. I had a blast. In fact I miss that game terribly for its charm and especially the music.

That was the second game in the Elder Scrolls series. I didn't play the first one, which was apparently similar but more primitive than Daggerfall. The next game was a diversion to a specific part of the Tamriel empire: Redguard, which was an amazing game that was totally free of bugs; Daggerfall, in its powerful ambition, had an impossible number of bugs that required truly massive patches, one after another. Redguard was completely problem-free, despite the fact that it was even more demanding of diverse hardware than had been Daggerfall. It was an immense achievement and a great story. I remember it with fondness today, and that's been six or seven years.

Fortunately, they now have Morrowind. I have the Game of the Year edition, which was the two expansions. I'm having a great time on this game; my Nordic warrior is now thirty days into the game and is eighth level, and has had all kinds of interesting adventures; while the game world is not as vast as that in Daggerfall, it is more fully detailed and everything is in true-3D this time. I can't help but think that they must be planning a Massively Multiplayered game in the Elder Scrolls universe; unfortunately there have been so many medieval-themed MMRPG's that it might not have a chance on the market; I'd try it out anyway. The wealth of different kinds of characters you can generate, going all the way to the beginning of the series, is remarkable.

Morrowind is already an 'old' game in market terms, but I do recommend that if you're a diehard RPG player - and you have to be a serious, patient player - run out and get the Game of the Year edition. You won't be sorry.

New Elder Scrolls
There's a massive new, massively improved Elder Scrolls game planned for the upcoming Xbox 360 platform this fall. It looks like an explosive evolution for the whole series.

Although there is little for me to say here, I can't pass up the chance to say: Yes, Morrowind is amazing. I love that game. And Oblivion... I don't think words can describe how awesome that looks to be.
